Title celebrations in pictures

Newcastle United are the Sky Bet Championship league champions for the 2016/17 season.

The Magpies went into the game in second place, knowing that a victory for Brighton & Hove Albion at Aston Villa would see the Seagulls lift the trophy no matter what happened at St. James' Park.

United went in front through Ayoze Perez, then 2-0 up through Chancel Mbemba, but a Glenn Murray penalty at Villa Park swung the pendulum back in Brighton's favour.

Dwight Gayle added a third for Newcastle before a dramatic late twist; Jack Grealish equalised in the dying seconds for ten-man Villa and Rafa BenĂ­tez's men were the champions.

And you can relieve a memorable day with club photographer Serena Taylor's gallery of images.
