As you might have seen around the media, this Saturday’s game with Cardiff City has been designated LEGENDS DAY and as part of that 12 giant flags will be raised in tribute to some of the greatest servants our club has had since its formation in 1892.
The vast majority of the flags in display on the Gallowgate End this coming Saturday have been purchased using the money donated by supporters via the Gallowgate Flags group.
Whilst the Gallowgate will be awash with all of the flags previously purchased through donations, pride of place will be the twelve giant flags which are now sitting in a suburban house on Tyneside waiting to be unveiled at St James’ Park this Saturday.
A full display of the Gallowgate Flags means there is a need for volunteers to get to the game early and help out. 2pm would be ideal.
However, no matter where you are at SJP on Saturday, please feel part of this by bringing scarves etc to wave as the display gets underway.
