Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Brian Close

One of my favourite Toon memories was in 1992 at Joker Park.

We had won our first 10 games and the score was 1-1 with about 14 minutes left we got a free kick just outside the Mackems box.

Up steps Liam O`Brien kicks the ball over the wall and past Tim Carter to make it 2-1 and our 11th win. We were jumping up and down before the ball hit the net.

The only one not to see it was TIM CARTER!

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.
