Fans smoke canister

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Blackpool are appealing to Newcastle United fans not to attempt to bring smoke canisters into their Bloomfield Road stadium when the sides meet in pre-season action on Sunday (3pm kick-off).

A rigorous searching operation will be conducted outside the ground's turnstiles ahead of kick-off and anyone found trying to take a smoke canister or flare into the stadium, or discharging one inside, will be arrested and prosecuted.

Newcastle United will take strong action against any such individuals.
