I was delighted to receive this e-mail from my much loved cousin Veronica Stanton (nee Young) originally from theSacramentoB&W People’s Republic of Dunston (aka D-Town) who in tyhe finest traditions of finding Geordies in the most unlikely of places happened upon our team, Newcastle United in her adopted home of Sacramento. 
This is Veronica’s patter with link to Sacramento’s match report. Not exactly what you are all used to but its a rare event that we don’t have one of our operatives at a Newcastle United first team game. 
Thanks Veronica.
I thought you would all enjoy seeing how many black and white shirts there were at the Sacramento Bonney Field, for the invitational match between the Sacramento Republic and Newcastle United this past Saturday.
Kick off was 8:00 pm so it was cool, around low 70s.  I had been dreading it because it was around 100F during the day.
The final score was 1 – 0 with an own goal by Republic to give Newcastle the lead. It was a good open match with really good passing.  http://www.sacrepublicfc.com/news/2015/07/18/srfc-v-nufc-recap
The stands were full and everyone was in a good mood.  I never thought I’d see the day that I would see the Magpies in Sacramento !

    Great to watch the link at Sacremento! Having watched two of the last three games I find my decision to get rid of my season tickets was justified, yes it’s early days and there are players still to come in, but you have to say we have been very similar to most of last season. De Jong looks leg heavy and has no movement, yes he’s been out for a long time, so I would expect him to be closing down not just strolling around and watching the game. Cisse, well, he’s still feeding off scraps, Williamson still looks out of his depth, even against Gateshead he looked a bag of nerves. We have to give McClaren 10 – 15 games to form a proper opinion, but from the two games I’ve watched I think it’s meet the new boss, same as the new boss (really hope I’m wrong). Bright spot is Aaron’s but we already knew about him. Fingers crossed for the season!
