Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle: Rematch

Recommended Posts



The Northern Echo Arena is set to be the venue of a re-match to celebrate the Premier League's 'greatest ever match'.


Liverpool's famous 4-3 defeat of Newcastle United at Anfield during the 1995-96 season was recently labelled as the Premier League game of all-time by Sky Sports.


Now Kevin Keegan's team, dubbed 'The Entertainers', are bidding to put the record straight with a re-match against the Reds, to be staged at the Northern Echo Arena on Sunday October 9 (1.30pm kick-off).


Pavel Srnicek, John Beresford and Robert Lee have already signed up the charity game, while Ian Rush, Jason McAteer and Mark Wright have agreed to turn out for the Liverpool side.


Kevin Keegan, who is expected to manage the United side, said: "I'm really looking forward to seeing all the lads again and helping to raise a lot of money for the five charities.


"It's win-win all round. Let's see if the entertainers have got it within themselves to entertain a bit."


Tickets for the game are priced £10 adults and £5 children, and are available to buy from www.ticketmaster.co.uk from 9am on Thursday (July 21).


Charities set to benefit from the event include NSPCC, CHUF, Alan Shearer Centre, Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and NE Children's Charity Pathways.
