Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie pick up award
Matt Ritchie and Jamaal Lascelles will collect the North East player of the year award on Sunday.
Chosen by North East Football Writers Association members, the Newcastle pair are joint winners after their efforts last season in returning NUFC to the top tier.
They will be presented with the award on Sunday at the Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham.
Rafa Benitez will also receive an award at the ceremony.
A timely presentation after Rafa and these two players played such key roles in the win over Manchester United.
A point or better at Bournemouth and that will set the awards ceremony up nicely.
