Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association will be making the trip to Hull City en masse this Saturday
The Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association (NUDSA) will be making the trip to Saturday's away game at Hull City en masse after the Magpies provided the group with free tickets, coaches, catering and stewarding as part of the Premier League Away Fans Fund.
The 49-strong party, which includes supporters and carers, will be among the 2,500 United fans in the sold-out away end at the KC Stadium as Alan Pardew's side look to make it back-to-back wins in the Barclays Premier League.
The allocation of funds for the trip was proposed in a Newcastle United Fans Forum - on which NUDSA hold a permanent seat - earlier in the season, with the group and Club officials working closely to identify a suitable fixture.
The Away Fans Fund was introduced this season to stimulate visiting supporter attendances at Premier League fixtures, with £200,000 being ring fenced per club for each of the next three seasons.
