‘The Bishops’ shop

The museum/shop was officially opened by Trust President, former England Amateur and Bishop Auckland player, Bob Thursby, accompanied by Dick Longstaff (Trust Secretary) and Steve Coulthard (Bishop Auckland FC Chairman).  The museum/shop is staffed by volunteers and is open 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday to Saturdays.  It is located in Bishop Auckland market place, overlooking the Town Hall where crowds welcomed winning teams back home.   It is proving very popular with visitors calling in throughout the day, many bringing their own mementos!
