Brilliant farewell message/video to Newcastle United fans and ‘fantastic city’ from Freddie Woodman

1 year ago

Freddie Woodman obviously has real quality and potential as a goalkeeper.

Excelling through the younger age groups with England, then the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons he was superb for Swansea in the Championship.

If they had succeeded in the play-offs either time (finishing sixth in the first Freddie Woodman loan season, fourth in the next), then who knows?

Now the 25 year old has gone back to the Championship, signing a permanent deal at Preston this week.

At Newcastle United things just didn’t fall right and when he did get a chance it was Steve Bruce throwing him in at the deep end, starting the first four Premier League matches of last season when things were so chaotic under Bruce and Newcastle sinking fast.

A new beginning now though for both Freddie Woodman and Newcastle United.

The now former NUFC goalkeeper putting out this classy farewell message and video (see below).

Newcastle fans responding and a big good luck Freddie from everybody at The Mag.

Freddie Woodman via his personal Twitter account – 23 June 2022:
