Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Daniel White


I'm a life long NUFC Fan and my greatest memory has to be, like most fans, the very first game. A cold Jan afternoon and we welcomed Coventry City to St James in the 3rd round of the FA cup. I walked up the steps to the Gallowgate and I was greeted with thousands of Fellow Geordies standing and clambering to get a good view as the Toon Army took to the Pitch.

The atmosphere was tremendous, the stadium like a church and the fans like no other. I didn't really see much of the game as I really could not see over the sea of black and white but I did managed to catch my first ever goal. The Gallowgate started to bounce, the noise was deafening and a moment I will next forget. We Ran out 2-0 winners that day.

Kevin Scott said Farewell as he was set to Join spurs and Cole and Beardsley scored the goals. I also remember when Micky Quinn came off the bench for Coventry and was given a hero's welcome back until he touched the ball.
