Newcastle United supporters will be able to take a trip down memory lane after a new book was released.

Kev Fletcher, from Chester-le-Street, has written a book counting down the top 100 players in the football club’s history.

The likes of Alan Shearer, Peter Beardsley and Jackie Milburn are sure to be included, but Mr Fletcher is hoping the book will ‘spark debate’.

He said: “I run the website NewcastleUtd-Mad.co.uk, and I asked the readers to send in their suggestions for the top 100. I compiled the list and researched them all, and this book is the result of that.

“I want to spark some debate with it, as every person will have a different opinion.

“It includes facts and figures, and I’ve tried to find something never reported before about each player.”

The book is on sale for £10.99, and can be bought by visiting www.amazon.co.uk/The-Toons-Greatest-Players-EVER/dp/132629685X

It is also being sold at One Stop News, in Blackett Street, Newcastle.
