Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone of you who has bought a Sir Bobby Robson t-shirt in aid of our ex-manager’s charity.

As all of you know Sir Bobby’s charity is based here in the North East and raises money to support clinical trials in order to support the fight against Cancer, a disease which I’m sure has touched many of you reading this.

Every penny profit made from the sale of the t-shirts will be donated to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Our efforts are registered with the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Our goal is to raise £1000 for the charity over the season and we are making progress on that having reached the halfway point now.

Obviously, we would love to get to the £1000 target as quickly as possible so the more t-shirts sold, the quicker we’ll get Sir Bobby T shirt (6)there.

If you would like to buy a t-shirt, please just click here. The t-shirts are £15 plus P + P and contain Sir Bobby’s famous quote:

“What is a club in any case?

Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.

It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.

It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Who could have put it better than that? Just click here to buy a t-shirt and support the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
