Pic Special: Water Lot Of Fun!
Wednesday afternoon saw United's players and staff take to the water, all in aid of a spot of team bonding.
The Magpies headed off whitewater rafting and spent more than two hours in the boats, navigating a course a number of times before finally ditching the boats and being allowed swim against the rapids.
From manager Alan Pardew to team administrator Tony Toward, and striker Papiss Cisse to doctor Paul Catterson, everyone joined in and there were smiles all round.
Club Photographer Ian Horrocks was also involved but managed to dry off and take some snaps. Joining him behind the lens was winger Gabriel Obertan, and the duo teamed up brilliantly to create this gallery of pictures from the day's activity.
