Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Ann Nicholson


1975 – Memories of going to the match with the husband, I was pregnant and used to go to the front.

When my son was born I got a £5 note and all the team signed it. When he was 18 we sent it to Newcastle United and the 1993 team signed it. The £5 note is now in a glass frame – one side has 1993 on it and the other 1975. Toon Army! It’s still got pride of place in his house. He also still has letter from the club at home proving the signing happened in 1993.

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.
