Pic Special: Fan-tastic Support In Bruges

Newcastle United fans travelled in their thousands to Belgium for Thursday night's Europa League Group D fixture against Club Brugge.

The Magpies were officially handed just under 2,400 tickets for the tie, but thousands more descended upon Market Square to watch the match on a big screen and soak up the atmosphere.

The historic city of Bruges was decked in black and white for a large part of this week, and manager Alan Pardew was full of praise for the Club's supporters and their "immpecable" behaviour.

"It certainly made it feel like home for us," he said.

"You hear a lot of negatives about British fans going abroad but our fans conducted themselves in an absolutely fantastic manner.

"They were impeccably behaved and their support was a big part of our succes.

"It is a reward for us and our fans to have those fantastic trips.

"We are really enjoying it, and if our fans continue to conduct themselves like they did on Thursday, then we can go to Bordeaux and anywhere else and set an example."

Club Photographer Ian Horrocks was part of the Club's travelling party and captured these images of United supporters before, during and after the match. Can you spot yourself or your friends?
