Newcastle Utd Make Dreams Come True
Two community teams from Greater Manchester travelled to the North-East on Monday to play on the hallowed St James' Park turf.
Wigan Cosmos and Wigan Goose Green FC were invited to play at Newcastle United's famous ground to make amends after visiting Geordie fans trashed their pitch in March as they went to watch Newcastle play Wigan.Cosmos manager John Pendlebury: “It is like Christmas Day for the lads. They have been so excited. I don’t think any of them have slept.“They were like big kids on the coach coming up. The club has put things right. We have gone from our last match of the season, playing on a field to playing at St James’ Park."It is unbelievable. We hope an occasion like this will inspire them.”
