On the eve of the trip to Leicester, the Ashley Out campaign organisers have announced plans to protest on Saturday.

The people behind AshleyOut.com are asking fans to stand up once again on 34 minutes at the King Power stadium to show their anger at Mike Ashley’s running of the club.

Volunteers will be outside the ground pre-match handing out protest materials.

Also before the match, there will be another peaceful protest targeting Sports Direct stores, this time in the Leicester area.

Leicester City (a) protest announcement

Following another successful day of protest last Saturday including action outside Sports Direct on Northumberland Street and approximately 80% of those in attendance at St. James’ Park standing up to Mike Ashley after 34 minutes of the game, we move on to Leicester away.

We feel it is important to continue with action on a game by game basis. The media rhetoric has changed and the local and national narrative is now firmly focused on the sad state of affairs that is Newcastle United under the ownership of Mike Ashley. This must continue.

We call on those travelling down to Leicester to continue to #StandUpToAshley after 34 minutes of the game to symbolise our discontent about the current ownership of Newcastle United. Our volunteers will be outside the ground to distribute materials and will be taking various banners to the game.

There will also be some limited action against Sports Direct stores in the vicinity of Leicester. We are still in the early days of this campaign and we will further expand our protest activities in the coming weeks and months.

    Keep up the good work lads, I think all protests and correspondence has been professional and dignified and has shown us in a good light. hopefully more and more people will join the protests outside the jumble sale shops.
    Another defeat tomorrow and relegation is a serious possibility which will pile on pressure and get more people off their backsides behind the campaign.

    Lets keep the bad man busy guys…. and guessing!

    He has parliament to contend with too, and maybe changes in the law concerning Zero hours contracts, mis-labeling and selling of goods, as well as single ownership of a football club…. these laws have to change

    Those people under him such as Moncur and Beardsley, Carver and Stone should be opening their eyes too, and questioning their allegiances, also the likes of Ryder, Lowes and Anderson!

    We have had it with Ashley, lets push his Downfall.

    Lads and lasses if you are going to Leicester don’t wear the won*a shirt. wear any pre won*a shirt.
    Don’t give the Ashley appointed loan sharks any free publicity.

  • Harry Todd

    One of our most important games in years and you want to protest.Wonder if the other teams at the bottom will be protesting or supporting their teams.

  • Morpeth mag

    Have the other teams at the bottom got chairmen raping them blind?

  • Steve1221

    Do we? It’s bad but not that bad

  • Morpeth mag

    Isn’t it,,?

  • Neverbooyasteam

    Morpeth mag
    Raping is unwillingly imposed, seems that buying a season ticket is willingly entered into.
