In Honor And Remembrance Of Two Dedicated Fans

sweeney - alder

We take time out today to remember two dedicated Newcastle fans, John Alder and Liam Sweeney, who lost their lives supporting Newcastle United.

This is the second anniversary of their tragic deaths.

Their passenger jet was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday July 17th, 2014 by rebels, as they were traveling to support the team in New Zealand.

We will never forget them.


And our manager Rafa Benitez, who has a heart of gold, has put this on his web-site today to remember John and Liam.

Today, Sunday 17th July, my thoughts are with the families of our fans John Alder and Liam Sweeney, who lost their lives following the club that they loved in pre-season two years ago.

They are in the hearts of so many people at this club.

RIP John and Liam.
