Frame not included.
I’ve been a Newcastle United fan since I could remember. My dad took me to my first match at St James Park when I was about 10 years old, the noise of 52,000 Geordies singing was amazing, I’ll never forget it. My dad has been my inspiration for , a loyal, dedicated black & white supporter. The matches he’s been to, the goals he’s seen completely outweighs mine, so I proudly asked him what his all-time favourite goal was. Many people can relate that their dads or grandads helped them fall in love with Newcastle United and the love of football, so hopefully many Geordies will agree, this goal will forever be a fan favourite.
This is what my dad said:
“It was May 1984, I’m 25 years old with my black nufc jumper on, sitting with my season ticket on the east stand benches with all my mates round me. Newcastle United are winning 2-1 against Brighton at home. The crowd is going mad. 36,000 people signing their hearts out. Then, right in front of me, Keegan puts the ball through to Beardsley then he beats the other player to it, drags it back, takes a quick look up and then chips the ball over the keeper from the edge of the box and the ball just floats over Corrigan who towered above everyone else. The ball smashes into the back of the net. Last goal of the season. Class.”
