Matchday Mag Sellers Pick Up Redundancy Pay Today

8 years ago

Pretty much all of you will have heard that the current magazine is our last ever issue with [intlink id=”41477″ type=”post”]details of the final countdown here[/intlink], but today also sees the matchday Mag sellers bite the dust, though not literally you’ll be pleased to hear.

Yes, after nearly twenty six years of urchins prowling the streets surrounding St.James’ Park, they are no more.

The current bunch are receiving their redundancy pay today as there are no copies of this last ever Mag left for them to sell!

Anybody who hasn’t yet grabbed a copy of our final (collectors…) issue, should either head along to the nearest newsagent and hope they have some left, or order below (FREE UK Postage) from our online shop which still has a small supply remaining for sale.

We also have a dwindling supply of some back issues still available in our online shop and these are also UK Postage FREE for the time being.

I’m sure though you will take a minute or two now to give thanks to those young (and some not so young) band of sellers who have braved the Tyneside weather to be part of the matchday routine outside SJP for these two and a half past decades.

It is quite fitting that for the first time in nearly 26 years there won’t be any Matchday Mag Sellers, while at the same time the sun is shining on Tyneside…irony, irony, irony.

Special Offer – To celebrate the new and final issue of The Mag we are offering FREE UK postage on this last issue, click HERE and you can order this final (collectors!) issue for only the £3 cover price.

Another Special Offer – If there are any back copies you have missed out on then we are also offering FREE UK POSTAGE for those as well, click HERE to take advantage – while stocks last!
