Skills Rock

Northern Rock's dedicated fan website, is giving Magpies fans the opportunity to become a Newcastle United kit man for the day.

All you have to do is upload a video of yourself performing some football skills to, whether it be in the office, with your mates or on the pitch. Then tell all of your friends and get them to vote for you. If you get the most votes, you win!

Anyone wanting to become part of the 'behind the scenes' team has until noon on Friday, 9th December, to enter. We will be picking two winners, who will get the chance to work alongside Club kit man Ray Thompson as Newcastle take on Swansea at the Sports Direct Arena on Saturday, 17th December. 

Starting their day at 11.30am, the first task will be to help Thompson bring the players' iconic black and white striped shirts to the dressing room and get it ready along with everything else the team will need to put on a star performance.

"The chance to become a kit man for the day is a fantastic opportunity for a fan to get a real flavour of the action behind the seasons on a match day" said Northern Rock's Louise Rourke.

"To get so close to the action at such an exciting time in the season, where the atmosphere is sure to be electric, will be a dream come true."

The prize also includes a pitchside walk with the opportunity to watch the players warm up, a self-service buffet lunch and two stadium seats so that when the game kicks off at 3pm, the winners and their guests will be able to watch the match in style.

The winner with the highest votes will be contacted on Monday, 12th December. For more details, visit
