How would you like to live your dream of running out at St. James' Park alongside a Newcastle legend, before playing in a 90-minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now is your chance, as Newcastle United have once again joined forces with Football Aid to give fans the opportunity to play at St. James' Park in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Magpies fans a unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way as the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Fabricio Coloccini, Papiss Cisse and Yohan Cabaye.

Players will gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out on the pitch to represent United in a never-to-be-forgotten match.

These fixtures at St. James' Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic legends in recent years including Peter Beardsley, Bobby Moncur, John Carver, Kenny Wharton, Mick Martin, and John Anderson.

Securing your position couldn't be easier.

Just visit www.footballaid.com and choose the Newcastle United games and then you'll have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment; or Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before the 31st January 2014.

Newcastle United fan Graeme Murray played in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience.

"I truly had an amazing day," he said.

"I was so chuffed when I scored my first goal and if I'm honest that would have been enough for me and that's why I gave the penalty to my brother-in-law so he could have his moment like I had mine.

"I never thought for one minute I would go on to score five, and scoring the crucial goals of the equaliser the goal to put us in front and then the last to put the game to bed making it 7-5, then to receive man of the match and get a match ball was just truly magical and a dream come true.

"I paid a lot of money for the game but it truly lived up to my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to live the dream."
