Newcastle United Change

Favourite memory

I think it’s an obvious one, probably the Barcelona game, back in ’97 when Tino got his hat-trick it was just one of those nights when, for me, everything went right and it was the perfect occasion to do it, in the Champions league and against Barcelona

Memories before joining the club.

I remember them coming to Old Trafford when I was sort of an apprentice young player at Old Trafford and I just sort of always remembered the fans and how fanatical they were and the noise that they made and when I got the opportunity to come here it was something I knew I had to do and experience.

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.
