Testimonial Lined Up For Newcastle Star

9 years ago

Not many players see out four or five years at a club never mind ten, while at Newcastle we have one player who has almost completed his twentieth!

Steve Harper is leaving Newcastle when this season ends but there are reports this morning that moves are afoot to organise a testimonial match.

The last testimonial granted at St.James’ Park was of course Alan Shearer’s, anybody who was there that night will testify to a momentous atmosphere, really special.

The Journal report that friends of Harper, including Steve Harmison, have approached the club and they are receptive to the idea.

However, it could be difficult to fit a match in pre-season so the game could take place during one of the international breaks next season.

Glasgow Rangers are being named as Harper’s preferred opponents.

Harper has made 155 appearances in those twenty years at St.James’ Park but has also had loan spells at clubs such as Brighton, Gateshead, Hartlepool and Huddersfield.
