Newcastle Players Take On Fans

9 years ago

Monday night saw players and fans come together in an EA Sports FIFA 13 challenge.

A total of 64 fans played in groups of 4 to finally win the chance to challenge the winner of the player mini tournament.

James Perch managed a draw with Sammy Ameobi but ‘Perchino’ went through on penalties , while Haris Vuckic beat Ryan Taylor in the other player semi.

It was Vuckic who came through in the player final by beating Perch and then faced the fans’ winner, Dan Woolett, for the overall champion’s tag.

Vuckic showed his expertise though and won the grand final 2-1.

FIFA 13 themed prizes were awarded and great to see players and fans coming together in such an environment.

(The injured) Haris Vuckic;

“I’ve had a bit of time to practice recently and although I’d much rather be able to play football for real, I do love FIFA and it’s nice to prove that I am the best player at the club”.
