Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Andrew McClay


The one Newcastle United match that will always stay with me is the F.A Cup 3rd round game on 6th January 1984 away to Liverpool which was also shown live on the BBC.

Despite losing 4-0 the game was held in a fantastic atmosphere with Newcastle having around 15,000 away supporters who out-sang the Liverpool fans.

The whole day was a massive buzz from getting on one of the many coaches at Newcastle to the return journey back with a freezing cold coach due to a smashed window thanks to a thrown brick as we approached Anfield.

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.
