Grounds for optimism over Senators' switch; AMERICAN FOOTBALL.

GATESHEAD Senators are moving into Monkton Stadium for the 2012 British American Football League season.

The Senators will play and train at the Jarrow-based venue in preparation for their first game in April.

Club secretary David Wilson said: "We are delighted to have secured Monkton Stadium as our home ground.

"We would like to thank Gateshead Stadium for their support over the last 20 years.

"However, we feel the move to Monkton will allow us to create more of a game-day experience for our fans which will include, among other things, covered seating, merchandise stands and a barbecue.

"We also hope to be in a position to announce a new team sponsor within the next month.

"We are also hopeful we can unearth some new talent in the South Tyneside area.

"We are constantly looking for new players, coaches and helpers for our junior (15+) and senior teams."

Anyone interested in joining the Senators can go along to training every Sunday at Monkton Stadium (11am-2pm).
