Exclusive Willock interview inside Saturday's programme
There’s an exclusive, six-page interview with Joe Willock inside Saturday’s issue of UNITED – Newcastle’s official, acclaimed matchday programme.
Willock, who scored the winner against Saturday’s opponents, Chelsea, in the reverse fixture last year, discusses his return to action after a challenging six-month spell on the sidelines, having suffered the first major injury of his career.
Among the other contents of the 84-page issue – recognised as one of the league’s best last season – is a bumper historical section, increased in size for 2023/24. Club Historian Paul Joannou provides four pages, as does regular UNITED columnist Stan Gate, who brings all sorts of black and white memorabilia back to light. There’s the latest chapter of The European Years – a new regular feature looking back at each and every one of the Magpies’ continental campaigns to date – as well as the newest instalments of The Poster Boys and When Worlds Collide, the latter shining a light on a couple of both clubs’ lesser-remembered players.
There’s plenty to read about United’s Under-21s and women’s teams, including in-depth pieces with Travis Hernes and Becky Ferguson and another new feature, Academy Alumni, in which we catch up with a different Magpies academy graduate every issue. This week, it’s Liam Gibson, who’s now playing for Harrogate Town in League Two.
Sky Sports’ Pete Graves provides his latest column, while the Newcastle United Supporters’ Club Bulgaria take centre stage in Mags Around The World.
Furthermore, there’s ten dedicated pages on our visitors to SJP, four more for Junior Magpies, boss Howe and Jamaal Lascelles’ thoughts ahead of the game and much, much more.
UNITED will be on sale around the ground, priced at £3.50.
