Ground & Match Enjoyment 8/10
Memories of 92-93 trip to Wembley
The Seasiders seem to a be a forward thinking club but upon further inspection the history of the club is a somewhat chequered. But still interesting an eventful one including two Wembley Finals.
The 1992–93 season was the most successful in the clubs history, they finished as champions of the Northern Premier League , and they won the FA Vase at Wembley, beating Tiverton Town 1–0. 

You can still see plenty of  nostalgic reminders of their greatest day around the club today.

Due to legal wrangles the team moved to play their home games at Doncaster Rovers ground and then folded, leaving Queensgate with no football during 1993 - 94. Following the disbanding of the Semi-Pro side after the 1993/94 season an ambitious local 'PUB' side, The Greyhound, were inspired to make an approach to the lease-holders with a view to making the Queensgate ground the base for The Greyhound team. A deal was struck with the proviso that the club change their name to Bridlington Town AFC. A new club crest was designed and a new motto 'Pergere et Eniti', broadly meaning 'Onwards and Upwards', was adopted.

Today a visit to Queensgate is a most enjoyable one. You are assured of a very friendly welcome and the place has a family feel about it, which is great to see. In fact the Staff could not do enough for the Visitor and a visit to this lovely Club comes with my warmest recommendation.

Black Flares , Red Cards , 5 goals, Spicy , feisty encounter by two very competitive sides only tell half the story. It was compelling , eventful all over the ground on and off the pitch. It was compelling until the final whistle and for some time afterwards.

You just had to be there to see what went on as words fail me.
