Newcastle United Change

Kevin Keegan's Debut

I was 16 at the time and me and mates were in the ground an hour and a half before kick off, we were in the gallowgate.The anticipation was incredible,we'd be waiting for a day like this for many years. I can still see Keegan through on goal then losing site of the ball as the crowd surged forward.

I never saw the ball hit the net, but with all hell breaking loose I knew!

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.
