Rachel Best

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

The January transfer window isn't open just yet but Newcastle have already made a new signing ahead of the new year - lucky supporter Rachel Best.

Club Member Rachel, who lives in Gateshead, entered the latest Money-Can't Buy competition to be featured in the squad list on the back of the official matchday programme throughout January.

And as she prepared to set off for Saturday's game against Queens Park Rangers, she was shocked to learn that she had been randomly selected as the winner, meaning she will become part of the team for the home games against Everton and Reading, plus a potential FA Cup fourth round tie.

"I'm so happy," she said. "I didn't expect to win but it's absolutely brilliant and I can't wait to see my name on the programme alongside all of the players.

"I'll definitely be getting a few copies of those particular programmes!"
