Before each home game there will also be the opportunity to hear the inspiring words and thoughts of former NUFC players and guests alongside those of compare Joe Allon.
Please come along this weekend and hear pre match thoughts of John Beresford and journalist and author Martin Hardy. Martin’s book Touching Distance documents the return of Kevin Keegan as Manager.
Exactly four years after Keegan's return to the North East of England, Newcastle were top of the Premiership, nine points clear of Manchester United, having played a game less. It would turn out to be one of the most memorable seasons in the modern history of English football. Keegan's side would play a unique brand of football and become known as the Entertainers. They would take part in a game at Anfield that became widely recognised as the best the Premier League has ever seen. Keegan would also famously square up to Sir Alex Ferguson.
Touching Distance tells the story of that remarkable season, through the highs and the lows of a truly dramatic campaign. It also traces the seeds of the revival back to Keegan's first spell as a player, to his return and the dramatic impact he had on a football club, its supporters and an entire region.
Touching Distance talks to the people who made it happen, the players, the coaching staff and the board and relives a truly momentous period for the club. It is a story of hopes and dreams and when, for Newcastle United, anything seemed possible.
So. Come along and hear from Martin on how the book came about; in his own words!
