Sir Richard Branson In Toon

10 years ago

Following on from Virgin Money’s takeover of Northern Rock and the subsequent sponsorship deal for Newcastle United, Sir Richard Branson visited Newcastle yesterday.

On the club’s official video CLICK HERE Sir Richard was seen chatting with staff and customers in his natural easygoing way.

There to meet up with him were a few players who came in on their day off and as well as Davide Santon making an appearance, both Sammy Ameobi and Mike Williamson spoke really well and suggested that there are more than two brain cells to rub together in the Toon’s dressing room.

Final word goes to Sir Richard who is clearly no football fan but comes across as a really good sport, when commenting on recent matches he mentioned how great it was that Newcastle had beaten Manchester three love!!
