‘3 points and Bruno Guimaraes gives my boys his shirt – They’ll remember it for the rest of their lives’
I took our boys to their first Newcastle United game last month, the rescheduled match against Southampton away.
What an absolute belter of a day (night) it was for them too.
Their first ever NUFC game resulting in a toon 2-1 away win.
An excellent equaliser by Chris Wood, his first Newcastle United goal courtesy of a superb Jonjo Shelvey ball into the box.
Then even better, that backheel volley winner from Bruno Guimaraes, also his first for NUFC.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, after the final whistle I couldn’t believe it when Bruno Guimaraes himself, headed over in our direction and handed his shirt to the boys!

What a day, one that the boys will remember for the rest of their lives.
Would love for Bruno himself to hopefully see this and our thanks for making it such a particularly special day (night), for two young (and one not so young…) fans.
