Magpie Group announce on Wednesday the latest Mike Ashley protest

The international break has seen two smaller protests outside a Sports Direct store in Dublin, as well as online interference spreading to include the bigger minority shareholders in Sports Direct, including Schroders.
Saturday though sees yet another pre-match show of displeasure, with fans asked to join protest organisers outside the (Sports Direct) club shop at St James Park from 2.15pm.
Supporters once again asked to protest pre-match against Mike Ashley but then for those who are going to the match, to then give 100% support to Rafa Benitez and the players once the game kicks off.
