Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Mrs Hunter


Wembley 1974 - I was working as a dinner lady in Gateshead Education Department and we decorated the dining room all black and white – rosettes and banners. When they came home we took the children, stood them on a wall near St. Mary’s Cathedral as the crowds were so big.

I also remember the Peanut Seller. He used to sell the nuts walking around the perimeter and my son used to buy a packet and throw the money at 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.
