Eight children from Thomas Bewick were lucky enough to win a place on the team for the NUFC Foundation 1892 Cup. Children were invited along to the NUFC Academy building where they competed against seven other primary schools. Despite some very tough competition, the children still enjoyed a fantastic day out.

They received a brand new Newcastle United strip (to keep!) and even had the chance to meet Eddie Howe and his coaching staff who all paid a visit to watch some of the young football talent on show.

“Yesterday at the 1892 Cup I had an amazing time playing football matches against the other schools. We tried our best and it was really good fun. I had the best time and it was great to see the school’s lift the trophy at the end. I felt so excited getting my first ever Newcastle strip and it was cool to meet the Newcastle manager. Hopefully I could join the team again some day.”
