The Middens have filmed their version of the song, The Red Red Robin, as the football club gears up for the FA Vase final in May.
A rousing music video featuring Tyneside football fans has been created by a local band as they cheer on their Wembley-bound team.
North Shields FC has made it through to the finals of the FA Vase Tournament and is set to take on Glossop North End at Wembley Stadium on May 9th.
Thousands of tickets have already been snapped up for the big game.
North Shields band The Middens re-recorded a contemporary and
up-tempo version of The Red red Robin, which was first written by Harry M Woods in 1926 and was performed by many stars of the 1920s including Al Jolson.
The number has become the official "road to Wembley" song for the club who are also known as The Robins.
And now the band have produced a video featuring footage of the team qualifying for the final and the fans of the club celebrating as the song plays in the background.
North Shields band The Middens who have recorded a song for the North Shields F.C. FA Vase Cup Run. It was filmed at Chirton Social Club.
Aaron Duff, singer and guitarist with The Middens, said: "It was great making the video with the fans, everyone was up for it. We had a great night shooting it."
Bass player Jamie Thompson added: "We can't wait for Wembley now. All the hard work has paid of and we'll enjoy the day."
Graham Fenton, the club's manager, said the team loved the song. He added: "It works brilliantly and the whole clube is enjoying having it as our song.
"We've invited The Middens down to Wembley with the club, we want everyone there and we need a party atmosphere. The whole town can really get behind the song and the team in the lead up to the game."
The band has been praised for their version of The Red Red Robin, with people leaving comment on social media sites.
One message said: "Excellent gig at Chirton Club. What a good band."
Another readd: "I haven't stopped listening to this all week, excited isn't the word."
The video has been viewed more than 1,500 times on YouTube.
North Shields, who play in Northern League Division One, were last at Wembley in 1969 when they won the FA Amateur Cup by beating Sutton United 2-1 in front of 47,000 spectators.
Last month, they beat Highworth Town to book their place in the FA Vase final. The second leg of the semi-final was watched by 1,500 at the Darren Persson stadium in North Shields.
