Pic Special: A St. James' Session

A change is as good as a rest, the saying goes, and on Thursday morning - after Sunday's derby defeat to Sunderland - Newcastle's squad trained away from their Benton headquarters.

Instead, the players prepared for Saturday's trip to West Bromwich Albion by going through their paces on the St. James' Park pitch.

At the Gallowgate end were the goalkeepers, under the watchful eye of Andy Woodman, while Alan Pardew, John Carver and Steve Stone oversaw the rest of the group.

There too was Serena Taylor, who brought nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery.
