Steve Wraith ( Newcastle Legends MD) : ” We are delighted to be helping stage this game to raise money for Gateshead Football Club. We have had some big games over the last few years against Manchester United and Liverpool but there is certainly a bit of spice with a local derby. I have spoken to a lot of the Newcastle Legends and there its a real buzz about the game.
