Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Paul Kitson


I scored a hat-trick here once, that was probably a highlight for me. That was Swansea in the FA cup so that was probably my best memory goal scoring wish and after that there wasn’t many because (laughs) they started buying other players and I started going down the pecking order. But it was good times and a great squad we had and I enjoyed my time here.

Memories before he joined the club.

Obviously being a local lad,I followed Newcastle, Sunderland all the North East clubs really. I was a Liverpool supporter as a youngster actually, because my favourite players were Rush and Daglish at the time and so I jumped on the bandwagon then but they were winning everything as well but I’ve always followed the North East teams.
