The Telegraph has painted an amusing picture of Danny Guthrie’s wedding last weekend, with claims that staff at upmarket Allerton Castle reckoned it resembled¬†‘more Big Fat Gypsy Wedding than our usual clientele,’ and said those attending had ‘behaved like peasants with money’.

The article went on to claim;

‘Police were called twice on the morning of June 2nd as violence erupted during the disco at the nuptials of transfer listed Newcastle player Guthrie, 25, and his Liverpudlian girlfriend Rebecca Middleman, mother of their three year old daughter Sienna.

Sources said fighting broke out around 2am in a marquee on the lakeside.

It was reported that bride, Rebecca, 23, was punched in the face during the melee and had to go to hospital for checks the following morning.

Police broke up the first fracas but then at 4am – after staff at the Castle had locked out the guests – police were called again by the frightened managers when a man allegedly kicked and smashed down the door to gain entry’.

Personally I thought Guthrie flattered to deceive on the pitch and the fact that they aren’t name checking any other Newcastle players (which they undoubtedly would have done!!) leaves me to question whether the midfielder did indeed fit into our apparently very tight squad.

There is as yet no confirmation that Joseph Barton was on the guest list.
