    Relegation Watch – Key Games Over The Bank Holiday Weekend

    Whilst much of our focus this week has been on stories about Newcastle United, it’s important to remember that there are a number of other clubs looking anxiously over their shoulders at the trapdoor to the Championship, and the financial implications that would come with the dreaded drop. Two teams are already relegated of course – Reading and QPR – and the battle is on to avoid the third relegation place. Mathematically it’s still quite scary. In some ways, it’s all down to what Wigan […]

    The Dan Pringle Tournament – Year 7 Is Almost Upon Us!

    The Dan Pringle fund was formed to remember a friend, and fellow Newcastle supporter, by raising funds for charity in his memory. We all know people who have died, some tragically early, others after a long fruitful life, and others somewhere between the two extremes. Everyone deserves to be respected and remembered in some way or other and because of who he was, his personality and likes, we chose to remember Dan by holding a charity 5-a-side football tournament each year and, in the process, […]
