Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Marina and Norman Haygarth


We were having an engagement party but the hotel we were having it at rang us up and said ‘sorry we’ve double booked’, but we do have the 4th of May (1974) free. So we went for it, forgetting that it was the Newcastle United Cup Final Match. Some of our friends didn’t come to the celebrations because they didn’t want to miss the match!

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.
