English club Newcastle United wore a special edition kit for their members in a halved black and white design during a pre-season friendly against Portuguese side SC Braga. Puma and Newcastle United released their home and away shirts last month which will both boast their new shirt sponsor Wonga.
The special edition members shirt was used to celebrate and remember the late and great Sir Bobby Robson who managed the club from 1999 to 2004. The match ended 1-1 with club captain Fabricio Coloccini scoring for the Magpies. Football League chairman Greg Clarke said “Sir Bobby Robson was a true Football League legend both as a player and a manager.”
The club also revealed their latest signing Loic Remy who is on loan from Queens Park Rangers prior to kick off. Loic Remy joins the array of French footballers at the club including Mathieu Debuchy (Shown above), Yohan Cabaye, Gabriel Obertan, Moussa Sissoko, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Yoann Gouffran, Sylvain Marveaux, Massadio Haidara and Romain Amalfitano.
