The original Gosforth Club was founded in 1877, playing the green and white hoops of Durham School as many members were ex pupils. In 1955 they moved to the new ground at the North Road, which was to be their home until 1990. During that time, and particularly in the late 1970s, Gosforth enjoyed tremendous success both on and off the field winning the John Player Cup in the 1975/76 and 76/77 seasons! Gosforth supplied innumerable players to all counties over the years, to the north of England sides and to the full International and British Lions teams. Some of them were Arthur Smith, Ray Mcloughlin, Malcolm Young, Roger Uttley, Peter Dixon, Duncan Madsen, Dave Robinson, Richard Breakey, Jim Pollock and Colin White. In 1990 the club name was changed to Newcastle Gosforth. Gosforth Rugby Club also continued as an amateur side working in partnership with the University of Northumbria. The Falcons title was taken on board during the 1990s when local businessman, Sir John Hall, took control and attempted to emulate the success of the Barcelona sporting club in Newcastle upon Tyne. Jonny Wilkinson plays fly half for the team. In 2004 the team gained former Australian international Matt Burke, who starts at fullback for the team. In August 2005 Falcons toured Japan pre season, and beat NEC Green Rockets easily.
