Swansea programme

Swansea are the visitors to St. James' Park on Saturday afternoon, and ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash, your official matchday programme is not to be missed.

Our main interview features stand-in skipper Steven Taylor, who will wear the captain's armband this weekend and is keen to right the wrongs of last Sunday's performance against West Ham.

In our ever-popular iToons feature, crowd favourite Sammy Ameobi talks at length about life on-and-off the pitch, and lifts the lid on his love of singing as well as the lifelong influence of his big brother Shola.

Midfielder Dan Gosling looks back at his time growing up in the city of Plymouth in Hometown Heroes, and talks at length about his life in the South West and his time at Argyle.

And our latest Young Gun interview features Geordie Conor Newton, who got off the mark in the goalscoring stakes this week with his first ever strike for the Reserves against Manchester United.

With England's revamped top flight now in its 20th year, Premier League Years focuses on every Newcastle season since it began, with the latest instalment looking at 1999/2000, when Sir Bobby Robson finally came home.

Elsewhere, we hear from the Club's hierarchy, as manager Alan Pardew explains why the Magpies must bounce back from defeat against the Hammers, and skipper Fabricio Coloccini looks ahead to the visit of the Swans.

And our award-winning opposition section brings you the lowdown on our visitors from South Wales, including profiles of their main players and a round-up of their season so far.

The programme is on sale in our Official Club Store at the stadium, and will be available around the ground on matchday as usual. Single programmes and subscriptions are also available online here.
