Students and staff at NBS Kenton were given an opportunity to experience a stadium tour of St James’s Park last week.
Accompanied by our fantastic tour guides from the NUFC Foundation, Donna and Melissa, we were allowed special access to every part of the stadium, from the dizzying heights of Level 7 of the Leazes End to the pitchside dug-out area where Eddie Howe and his coaching team sit. The home dressing room was everyone’s highlight, as we took the opportunity to have photos taken next to the shirts of legends like Bruno Guimares, Joelinton and Big Dan Burn. We even got to visit Jonjo Shelvey’s private box, where we saw photos of Mr Gray when he used to play for Newcastle United!
It was a fantastic trip and everyone will take away what one student described as ‘special memories’ of the day.
