Gazza’s back in Toon

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

PAUL Gas­coigne turns back Tyne for de­lighted fans in his beloved New­cas­tle colours. The ex-Eng­land star, 50, looked in great form as he ran out yes­ter­day with fel­low Toon and Eng­land le­gend Peter Beard­s­ley in Gateshead. They played in mem­ory of late United goal­keeper Pavel Sr­nicek and Gazza bagged the last goal in a 7-1 win over lo­cals Felling. His neph­ews Cameron and Joe smiled as they posed up for a snap with their un­cle – who claimed in May he was win­ning his long bat­tle with booze.

Also play­ing were for­mer Mag­pies favourites Dar­ren Pea­cock, Keith Gille­spie and Steve Howey.

Gazza, who moved from St James’ Park to Tottenham af­ter three sea­sons, last played for New­cas­tle United in 1988.

But, as the glory days came flood­ing back, it only seemed like yes­ter­day as he cel­e­brated scor­ing. FAM­ILY HERO Gazza with Cameron and Joe
