Reds Hoping For Big Newcastle Crowd

Future international stars are expected to be on show at Conference North club Workington tonight when Premier League side Newcastle United visit.

Andy Carroll and Tim Krul are just two big names to have visited Borough Park in recent seasons.

Speculation remains as to whether star striker Papiss Cisse will be included after he pulled out of Newcastle pre-season tour to Portugal on religious grounds.

Reds general manager Alec Graham urged fans to pack Borough Park to see the next wave of world class stars.

"We've had Carroll, Krul and Marcelino in the past," he said.

"We have a great relationship with Newcastle. They've always done us proud when it comes to sending top young players.

"There's no doubt future international players will be on show, and that is exciting for our players to test themselves against and for our fans to see.

"Hopefully, we'll have a big crowd because this is a friendly that should be celebrated."
