Newcastle celebrate

Newcastle United Member, Mark Brown, won a recent Money Can't Buy competition to join Bob Moncur at the Liverpool game.
The prize package consisted of a three-course meal with Bob, pre-match photograph and seats in the Director's Box for the game.
Mark, who came along with his dad, shared his experience with nufc.co.uk...

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved at Newcastle United for the wonderful day my dad and I had at Saturday's match against Liverpool as the guests of Mr. Bob Moncur and his wife Camille as the 'Money Can't Buy' competition winner.

Every member of staff we met at NUFC on Saturday were courteous and a credit to Newcastle United, from the service and bar staff in the Moncur Suite to the hostess who took us on to the pitch for our picture taken. The whole day was special from the moment we arrived at St. James' Park until the moment we left. We even got lucky and passed Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa in the tunnel as we went for our photo just as the team came out for the warm up. Our view of game from the director's area was first class, along with all of the facilities, and the team's performance was in keeping with the whole day - brilliant.

I hope you will be able to somehow pass our personal thanks onto Bob and Camille Moncur as they were wonderful hosts and it was also a huge pleasure to meet another Fairs Cup-winning hero, Jim Scott, and his wife and share all of their stories from their playing days along with their thoughts on Saturday's game.

My father suffers from Parkinson's disease and it is becoming increasingly difficult for him to attend the matches as the seasons go by especially, with us travelling from Cumbria for every home game, so that made the match and everything that went with it that much more special and Saturday just gone will be very fondly remembered by us both.

I would like to say thanks once more to everyone at Newcastle United for letting us enjoy an exciting game of football and never-to-be-forgotten experience.
