We paid tribute yesterday to Tore Eikeland, the 21 year-old Newcastle fan, who was gunned down in the terrible disaster that took place in Norway last Friday afternoon.
Torre Eikeland – gunned down on Friday afternoon
And it was great to see that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has heard all about the tragedy and paid tribute himself to Torre, on behalf of the Newcastle United club.
This is what the Newcastle manager said today:
“On behalf of everyone at Newcastle United, we were horrified to hear of the tragedy in Norway and the senseless loss of innocent life.”
“Our thoughts go out to the families and friends of all the victims, especially to those of Tore Eikeland who we know was a huge supporter of Newcastle United and a keen contributor to a Norwegian NUFC fans website.”
“The players, coaching staff and everyone associated with the club send our heartfelt condolences to the Eikeland family and all those who lost a loved one that day.”
It’s excellent that Alan has come out with that tribute, to a young man who had a wonderful future and political career in front of him, before he was so mercilessly gunned down.
