Whereeeeerrrreeereee has the t-shirt been this week?

Well then! The Run Geordie Run t-shirt continues to lead one heck of a journey. Last week it was in the company of The Newcastle Falcons squad. The week before that Melinda Messenger and Kate Walsh got their hands on one.

This week it was the turn of one of my heroes from the nineties. I remember his debut for Newcastle and the goal he scored in that game as if it were yesterday!

So you can imagine my excitement when ex Newcastle United midfielder Paul Bracewell declared his support for the Run Geordie Run cause this week. I was lucky enough to meet him while on a tour of the superb COMPLETE FOOTBALL complex near Newcastle Race Course.

"Brace" seemed to be very impressed when I told him about the run and after a good half an hour chat he was more than happy to sign a Run Geordie Run t-shirt. Perhaps another one to auction off in the future?

I must admit that I found Paul to be a very nice guy indeed. As for the COMPLETE FOOTBALL complex that he is involved with, all I can say is that the facilities are absolutely first class. My son, Jack, started goalkeeping coaching there this week and he loves it. He's also signed up for the Christmas Football Camp they are running in association with the Newcastle United Foundation. I think he's almost more excited about that than Christmas Day (Almost!).

Don't forget to tune in next week to find out where the Run Geordie Run t-shirt gets to.
