Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Malcolm Dalgleish


Got the Trolley Bus from Fenham to St James Park,1958,I was 6 my brother Stuart 7, met my Dad and his 2 brothers to go and see Toon versus Moscow Torpedo,Lev Yashin in goal. Fantastic been a supporter ever since, even though ,we got beat 6- 0,Len White,Jimmy Scoular.

The best of it was though,I got under Uncle John's Raincoat,and nicked in for free, Wor Stuart under our Dad's and when we got in the Gallowgate everyone passed us over their heads to get us little uns to the front.

Happy Days.The straw off the pitch kept me warm.

Newcastle United Foundation have a heritage project for fans of all ages called Toon Times.

Toon Times will culminate with a major Newcastle United exhibition at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle, although in the lead up to this event Toon Times wishes to reach out to all Newcastle United fans across the North East and further afield to get involved and share their memories, experiences, photos and memorabilia what people have collected over the years.

We are supporting the project by helping to collect NUFC memories online - fans can share their memories on the Replay Football website, simply select the Toon Times tag when submitting yours.
