EBAY1


The generosity of Newcastle United footballers is set to raise significant funds for community projects across the region as part of Newcastle United Foundation's annual end-of-season auction on eBay.

Magpies fans can now bid for an array of exclusive kit and memorabilia from the 2013/14 campaign by clicking here.

Players have donated match worn boots, shirts, shorts, training gear and other items from the season, appealing to fans who want to show their support for the Club's official charity.

Among the items up for grabs are Shola Ameobi's boots, his shirt worn on the final day of the season, signed World Cup shirts, plus match-worn kit and training gear from the squad.

Also being auctioned off are St. James' Park pitch segments, corner flags and Vurnon Anita's match-worn boots.

Sarah Medcalf, development manager at the Newcastle United Foundation, said: "We would like to thank the players for donating the items to our charity auction and wish all of our supporters in the UK and worldwide good luck in bidding for these fabulous items. Here's to raising a fantastic amount by bidding on eBay."

The online auction started on Sunday and will run until Sunday, 22nd June. Each listing lasts seven days, with a new batch of items being added every week until all the items are sold out!

All items will be listed on Newcastle United Foundation's eBay auction site, which can be found here, and every penny raised will go to Newcastle United Foundation to help support local children and families. (Registered charity no. 1124896).
