Pic Special: Look Who Popped In...

The biggest pop band in the world have been performing on Tyneside this week, and swapped a tour bus for Newcastle United's training ground to showcase their football skills.

Four members of One Direction - Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - were in between sell-out shows at the Metro Radio Arena, so paid a visit to the Magpies' Benton-based headquarters, where they rubbed shoulders with first team stars, pulled on the famous black and white striped shirts and played in a friendly match against coaching staff including manager Alan Pardew and Peter Beardsley.

Club Photographer Ian Horrocks was on hand to capture the lads in action for this exclusive gallery of images for nufc.co.uk.
