Newcastle United fans flying from Ireland to…Boycott Wolves

3 years ago

Newcastle United fans, Ian Doyle and his two boys, live in Ireland and booked their flights and hotel accommodation months ago for the Wolves game.

They don’t get to get over much to games because as we all know, raising a family is not cheap and flights and accommodation football tickets etc. are a luxury.

They bought their tickets as well, before realising that there was a boycott planned.

Anyway, Ian is still travelling over with his two boys BUT they are going to boycott the game.

The trio are instead going to watch the match in one of the pubs or clubs in Newcastle City centre and are then going to frame their (unused) tickets, knowing that they are helping to get AshleyOut.

I was really touched by this man’s story as at first he was not going to boycott and I talked him into it.

At that time I didn’t know he was travelling from Ireland with his two sons but I have to say I was blown away by his decision, dedication, self sacrifice and love for Newcastle United.

It could not have been easy telling the boys…
