Harry Garrido team photo

One of the key benefits of Newcastle United's Membership scheme are Money Can't Buy competitions, which are open to all Members and season ticket holders.

A recent competition, Put Yourself In The Picture, offered Members the chance to appear in Newcastle United's first team squad photo, lining up alongside their heroes.

One of the lucky winners was Magpies Member Harry Garrido, who wrote to the Club to share his experience of the day:

I was lucky enough to be part of the official squad team photo after winning the Put Yourself in The Picture competition.

Before I went I told all my friends and I was really excited.

My dad took me up to the training ground and I was able to meet lots of the players and get their signatures and a photo with them.

I sat next to Alan Pardew in the squad photograph and it felt amazing! Everybody was really friendly and Alan Pardew invited us to watch the first team as they trained.

It was a cold day and I got a lovely warm jacket from the Club while my dad was freezing! It was great. Then the manager said we could have some lunch with the players. I will never forget the day. It was fantastic.

I cannot wait to get my official photo to show all my friends and family and I have already chosen a space on my bedroom wall for the photo.

Thank you to everybody at Newcastle United.
