Newcastle United Confirm Our Alan Shearer Story
Earlier today we brought you [intlink id=”30257″ type=”post”]an exclusive[/intlink], with Newcastle United taking the Shearer tag away from the bar at the Gallowgate End.
Shearer’s Bar which was opened in 2004 and has been undergoing a refurbishment, the club confirming this afternoon that indeed Shearer’s name would be removed from the bar at St.James’ Park.
The club releasing the following statement;
Named after club legend and record goal scorer Alan Shearer, the venue was originally launched in December 2004 beneath the famous Gallowgate end of the ground and was at the cutting edge of the leisure industry when its doors first opened.
Eight-and-a-half years on, Shearer’s Bar is now in need of a comprehensive refit which will bring the venue completely up-to-date and bring fans and visitors through its doors once again.
Work is set to be complete on the new bar in July and it will be complemented with a new name to reflect its new-look: Nine – named after the iconic shirt worn by the Toon hero and former England striker.
As part of a special launch event, the club is planning to raise funds for Alan Shearer Foundation, with a special charity auction of exclusive items to benefit the charity’s work in supporting children, adults and families with disability across the North East.
