On the 9th December 1892, Newcastle United was born following the merge of Newcastle East End & Newcastle West End.
With a name chosen to signify the unity of the two teams, fast forward 125 years to St. James Park and an evening televised fixture against Leicester City. As for unity within the club at present, that’s up for you to decide.
We were delighted to work with the marketing team at Newcastle United to create 49,000 supporters flags in the iconic colours of the magpies, which would be used by the team to drill up the atmosphere before and during the game.
We’ve now manufactured supporters hand flags in all major sporting leagues in the UK, and have grown a solid reputation for our quality, customer service and pricing.
From celebrating important landmarks for clubs (such as Newcastle’s centenary year on this occasion) through to the requirement for flags to celebrate an upcoming cup final, we’re fast becoming the go-to guys for professional sports teams across rugby union, football and rugby league.
So, what about the game itself? Despite starting well with a 4th minute goal from Spanish striker Joselu, Newcastle United would find themselves 2-1 down by the hour mark with Demarai Gray’s deflected strike.
A 73rd minute equaliser from Dwight Gayle looked to secure a point for the Magpies, but the centenary party was crashed by an Ayoze Perez own goal in the 86th minute.
Newcastle United welcome Everton to St. James Park in the Premier League on Wednesday, where we hope to see some of our supporters hand flags resurface to try and encourage the team in a must-win game!
