Relive the golden days.

Old newsreels from the halcyon days of amateur football are to bring back memories of North-East Cup exploits.

A football memorabilia exhibition is to be staged by the Durham Amateur Football Trust in Durham Clayport Library from today to April 5.

The travelling exhibition of amateur football memorabilia highlights the success of North-East teams in the FA Amateur Cup in the 1950s and 1960s.

Teams within a five mile radius ( from Bishop Auckland, Crook, Cockfield, Evenwood and Willington ( ruled amateur football during the 1940s and 1950s.

FA Amateur cup finals were an important feature of the sporting calendar in those days, and the south Durham communities would regularly be deserted as fans packed trains taking them to Wembley.

Admission to the exhibition and film show are free but places should be reserved by calling Clayport on (0191) 386-4003.

The library is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 7pm, 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and, from April 1,10.30am to 4.30pm on Sundays.
