Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Darren Peacock

Best Memory

We seemed to be winning all the time and it was just sort of built and built and built and sort of snowballed. The whole occasion of training, playing the European games, the night games were great extremely fond memories of looking back and not one particular moment but the whole, for me personally, I was there for four years and they were great times.

Before joining the club.

When you’re a kid you look at your favourite players going to clubs and when you see it on Match of the Day, The Big Match or whatever it would be you would try to aspire to be those sort of players and even though things have changed and the scenery has changed, the ground has changed hugely, you still get fond memories of the players that you watched on TV.

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.
