Newcastle United Fan Arrives At Wrong Ground – Three Days Early!

Spare a thought today for the Newcastle United fan who turned up for his team’s game with Burnley – having got the wrong date.

The hapless Magpie was spotted pulling up in his car outside Turf Moor at about one o’clock today by football writer Simon Hughes who was there to cover the game. The Newcastle fan, bedecked in his black-and-white colours, left his car only to scurry back a few minutes later having realised his error.

Newcastle United don’t play at Burnley until Tuesday.

Hughes added:

The journey from Newcastle to Burnley is some 120 miles. Newcastle were in fact playing at West Ham United, 250 miles away from Burnley.

To make matter worse, the Magpies lost 1-0 thanks to a second-half goal from Aaron Cresswell.

Had the Newcastle fan remained at Turf Moor he would have seen the Clarets draw 1-1 with Aston Villa.
