Sad News As Peter Lovenkrands’ Father Dies

Some terrible news tonight for hat-trick hero Peter Lovenkrands, as his father has passed away, and Peter is now in Denmark.

Peter Lovenkrands – father has just passed away

The Newcastle United club issued this short statement tonight:

Newcastle United would like to offer their condolences to Peter Lovenkrands and his family following the death of the player’s father.

Peter, who had returned to Denmark, has asked for privacy at this time.

His father has been struggling for a while now with illness, and that has affected Peter’s form this season, but to his immense credit he came through wonderfully well on Monday night with a perfect hat-trick against Plymouth, to take the Magpies through to the 4th round of the FA Cup.

Peter of course will now miss Monday night’s vital game at home to WBA, but there are some things in life that are even more important than football.

We offer our condolences to Peter and his family on their bereavement.

    Obviously very sad news and full credit for scoring a hattrick when he obviously knew the poor state of his father.

    Try to concentrate on feeling very very proud of your father, Peter, and offer thanks that you had him as a Dad. And remember that you have made yourself a special place in Geordie hearts and that thousands of us will be thinking of you. It might help you a bit through some long hard days..

    Very sad news – perhaps it was some relief in the end if the poor man was suffering badly.
    Ed, great to see you back. I guess you were getting withdrawal symptoms?
    How is NC? Were you just waiting for the snow to thaw here before restarting the blog?

    Nobby Solano training with 1st team……………..
    Just got back from taking my son to football training at Northumbria Uni at Coach Lane, one of the other parents went to NUFC training ground prior to attending his son’s training and saw Nobby.
    I promise you all that this is not a wind up.
    Maybe they are looking at an alternative to the Simpson deal which appears dead.
    Personally I would have Nobby back as he could offer cover in midfield as well as RB.

    Condolences to Peter, It is sad to lose someone close, I am at the age when friends and relatives seem to be going at an alarming rate including my brother in law last last week.
    It’s a real shame for him as I am sure he was looking forward to Mondays game and instead has to endure a sad loss.
    We all look forward to having him back and banging in more hat tricks.

    Thank you Komfort for asking. Yes, I lost my son aged 34 on October 31st and we finally had his funeral on November 24th. Still an inquest to go through in May. He died 2 days after my sisters funeral. All in all a shit year. Just me and my youngest son left now. Howay lads – we still have the Toon and our heritage. It is great to be back on the blog. £ points tomorrow!
