The original club colours consisted of red shirts with a golden sash, white shorts and red and white socks. This strip was worn by the Wallsend Rovers, the original club name in 1887. The presence of red and white has been continuous, with evolving designs and styles always involving the use of these colours. There are plans to return to the original strip with the revival of the golden sash for the club's 125th anniversary.
Wallsend Football Club is based at The Gardens Sporting Complex, which was formerly used by the Newcastle Breakers until their demise. The ground has been developed into a multi-use greyhound and sports venue, not merely a site for football. The previous capacity to hold 11,000 spectators has dropped to one of 2,000, with 1,100 of those being seated.
A number of Wallsend have representational honours at various levels. In 1933 one Australian national team fielded five Wallsend players, being; C Edgetton, Winky Forrester, J Osborne, Jock Parkes, and Alf Quill. The match was played against New Zealand and ended as a draw with C Edgetton captaining the side and Alf Quill scoring both Australian goals.
