The Mag – Wednesday 24 October 2018:
A new protest group has been set up against Mike Ashley.
As things go from bad to worse under this owner, Newcastle fans in London and the south of England are now organising.
As no doubt you already know, there are huge numbers of Toon fans down in the south, especially those who are in exile after moving for work.
Any Newcastle away match in the south east is always well supported by ‘locals’.
Announcing their presence (see below), the London Magpie Group are asking fans to go HERE for more details and to register.
‘A STAND AGAINST ASHLEY
‘We are the London Magpie Group – a newly formed collection of passionate Newcastle United fans based in London and the south of England.
Our aim is to support the club on and off the pitch, and to organise & assist various peaceful protests and demonstrations in collaboration with other NUFC fans groups both in Newcastle & elsewhere to help rid our once-great club of our disinterested and disrespectful owner.
We’re experiencing the culmination of 11 years of neglect and we just cannot sit back and allow this to happen. Enough is enough.
Newcastle United is a huge club with legendary support a rich history of passion both from the supporters and great managers like Kevin Keegan, Sir Bobby Robson and lately Rafa Benitez.
The fans are spread far and wide with a huge number in the nation’s capital and we exist only to provide an outlet for those fellow exiled fans to show their support for the club that means everything to them.
Alongside other supporter groups, we are united in the cause. We will not stop until Ashley and his associates are gone from our club’
