Iconic St. James Park Gates To Be Unveiled Tomorrow

One of the things that Newcastle fans will see tomorrow are the iconic wrought iron gates that used to be at the stadium, but were taken away in 1999, and they ended up at Woolsington Hall, the estate of Sir John Hall.

But the club, Sir John and NUFC Fans United got together and agreed that they needed to be restored and they were being installed and further restored at the ground earlier this week.

They will be covered up until tomorrow, before they are formally unveiled, and the workers seem to have done a great job in restoring the gates to their former glory.

And it’s great to see the club and fans working together to get something positive achieved for Newcastle United.

Here are some photos of the restored wrought iron gates, and the men working on them – and we should see some additional photos tomorrow after the gates are unveiled.
