Pic Special: Lads Gather For Euro Draw

Newcastle fans from around the world logged onto the internet and crowded around television screens to watch Friday's Europa League quarter-final draw - and the players were no different.

The whole squad assembled in the dining room at the Club's Benton training ground to watch proceedings from Nyon in Switzerland and nufc.co.uk were there too.

A huge cheer went up as popular Assistant Football Secretary Richard Hines was shown on the screen, wearing his best suit, but then it was down to serious business.

Alan Pardew, his staff and his players watched with baited breath as former Magpies striker Patrick Kluivert made the draw and Newcastle were drawn out last against Portuguese giants Benfica. Club Photographer Ian Horrocks brings us this exclusive gallery.
