Three of Newcastle’s senior players Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett were at Morpeth last night to cheer on the U23 team.
Sean was on crutches with his knee injury and will be visiting a specialist today.
Unfortunately, we were beaten 2-0 and Morpeth Town have reached the final of the Northumberland Senior Cup final to be played at St. James’ Park.
Morpeth AFC showed some real class after the game – a massive win for them – by thanking the Newcastle senior players for attending the game.
The three players were happy to be photographed with the Morpeth Town fans.
That’s a big thing, especially for youngsters and the three players have received plaudits from Morpeth Town AFC for traveling to the game last night.
Well done lads!!
Credit to Sean Longstaff, Jonjo Shelvey and Paul Dummett who were at the game having pictures taken with the kids. These things don’t get picked up on by the media but they make a big difference to the children they meet. Cracking lads @NUFC https://t.co/mFiBRYIecj
