Newcastle United: Club Profile
Our epic David versus Goliath FA Cup clash with Newcastle United in 1998 definitely put our humble club on the footballing map. Our 1997-8 FA Cup Round Four battle had the world’s focus squarely on us. And made things a little bit tense between us too; the Toon not happy that we wanted to play our home tie at home. No matter what that Shearer lad says, it never crossed the line in the replay.
Not a problem, however. Well, not after our convincing 3-1 win in the 2010-1 FA Cup. If ‘convincing’ is doing that enough justice…

Newcastle United Travel Information – Distance: 248 miles
With the A1/A1(M) making up most of your journey to Newcastle, it’s a relatively easy trip to plan. Time-wise, you’re looking at around four hours on a good day. Go north for about 239 miles until you reach the junction for the A184, come off the A1 and join the A184.
As the road starts to bend round to the right and then left over a roundabout, it becomes the A189. You want to remain on this for nearly a mile; crossing the Tyne in the process. Go right into St James Boulevard, before a left after half a mile puts you on Gallowgate.
We know of a few options that you might want to take advantage of if you’re driving up to Newcastle. A multi-storey car park close to the Royal Victoria Infirmary on Queen Victoria Road and Newcastle College are two options that are no more than 15 minutes’ walk.
NUFC do run a Park and Ride system from two sites near the A1: Newcastle Great Park and the MetroCentre. For more info and timetables, please see www.gonortheast.co.uk.

The walk isn’t a long one by any stretch. Come out of the station onto Neville Street and cross straight over; going up Bewick Street almost directly in front of the train station. At the end of this thoroughfare, turn right onto Clayton Street West.
Before you come to Westgate Road, turn left to cut off the corner and head towards the Western Walls. Keep going up here, before turning right up Stowell Street. Keep going along until the end and cross over Gallowgate.
