NEWCASTLE United fans can get a glimpse of their idols when the club hosts a free training session next week.

The entire first-team squad will take part in the session at St James’s Park.

Manager Alan Pardew and his coaching staff will all take to the mic to talk supporters through some of the drills.

And for Magpies and club members there will also be a number of competitions, including the opportunity to take penalties against goalkeeper Tim Krul and compete in a special crossbar challenge with three Newcastle United stars.

Simon Esland, the club’s head of customer operations, said: “In previous years when we have held open training sessions, thousands of supporters have come through the turnstiles, but we think this is our biggest and best yet.”

The event will take place on Friday.

Turnstiles open at 9.30am and training runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

The club’s official website, nufc.co.uk, will be updated over the next few days about how to take part in the members-only competitions.
