Newcastle United DSA enjoy all expenses paid trip to Hull!

For the second successive season, Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association (NUDSA) enjoyed an all expenses paid trip to Newcastle’s game at Hull City on January 31st. This was a combined effort by Newcastle United and NUDSA to organise an away trip for NUDSA members.

NUDSA were allocated resources to ensure 50 of its members can attend, just as they did for the Magpies’ 4-1 win at the KC Stadium in March 2014. This included 12 wheelchair user and companions as well as 18 ambulant fans and companions. The club provided the group with free tickets, coaches, catering and stewarding.

The trip was funded by the Premier League Away Fans Fund, which aims to assist travelling supporters across the country. The allocation of funds was proposed by the Newcastle United Fans Forum – on which NUDSA hold a permanent seat – last season, with the group and Club officials once again working closely to identify a suitable fixture following last season’s successful away day.

NUDSA Secretary and Paralympian Stephen Miller said, ‘This year’s trip to Hull was just as successful as last year’s. Three buses made the trip down to Hull and two were accessible for wheelchair users, and once again everyone enjoyed a memorable day out as NUFC secured 3 points again with a comfortable 3-0 victory. The FA Away Day scheme is helping more disabled people experience the thrill of attending away matches, we hope this is something that continues into the future.’
