Mascot 1

Club sponsor wonga.com rewarded brave schoolboy Morgan Lant with the chance to be a Mascot at Newcastle United v Manchester City.

Morgan, 10, from Jesmond, is a promising player on Newcastle United Foundation's Advanced Coaching Programme. Two weeks ago he accidently tripped and broke his arm playing football and had to have an operation to reset his arm.

The Foundation was so impressed by his bravery and cheerful spirit through all the pain that they nominated him to receive a special reward from Wonga. Morgan was selected to line up and walk about with the players onto the pitch before the Magpie's Captial One Cup game on Wednesday 30th October.
