Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Gary Mordey


Patchy Form for Newcastle

‘I remember watching Newcastle United in the 1960s and 1970s when Lord Westwood was the chairman he was very distinctive as he used to wear an eye patch. It was great to see the club win something with the Fairs Cup in 1969 and even though the visits to Wembley in the 1970s ended in disappointment it was memorable to see’.

‘I can always remember you always knew if Newcastle had played really bad as Lord Westwood used to wear his eye patch over the good eye!’

Gary Mordey



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.
