Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Karl Coverdale


My first match was a Newcastle United Vs QPR, when Keegan scored. I have been hooked ever since. I have seen some great players over the years; Beardsley, Keegan... Although we haven’t always won I have always felt privileged to watch the team and to be a Newcastle United supporter.


I remember one day, I had my ear phones in and I was crossing the road and I almost got run over by a little Renault car beeping its horn at me. It was Peter Beardsley and his wife Sheila. I would have loved to be run over by someone like him!

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.
