Newcastle United Football Club is one of the most historic and successful clubs in English football history, and although recent success has been hard to come by the club remains synonymous with the top tier of English football and retro Newcastle shirts are among the most iconic in recent history.
The history of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne club dates back to 1892. The merger of two rival teams, Newcastle West End and Newcastle East End, created one of the most established teams in English football.
St James’ Park is one of the most iconic football stadiums in the UK. There are seats to house over 52,000 home and away fans, creating an electric atmosphere for any home match. Typically, Newcastle have always fought against the big teams such as Man Utd and Liverpool, but recently the club has experienced a less successful period. However, with new owners just in, the club expects to reach the top half of the table moving forward.
Major Trophies Won
In their history, Newcastle United have won six FA Cups as well as four league titles but in the modern game the club have struggled to build on their early success. Legends of the game Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson have managed the club in the last 30 years, but failed to win the elusive trophy the fans crave so much.
Alan Shearer is an icon with Newcastle fans and is widely recognised as one of the, if not the, greatest centre forwards to ever play in the Premier League. In terms of classic football shirts, when Shearer’s name is mentioned it is hard to not picture the Black & White 1995/96 Home Kit with the Newcastle Brown Ale sponsorship - famously worn when Newcastle defeated Manchester United 5-0 at their home ground of St James’ Park in October 1996. Legends of the game have played for and worn some classic Newcastle shirts, with the likes of Peter Beardsley, Paul Gasgoine and Malcolm Macdonald all pulling on the Black & White of Newcastle.
Overall, Newcastle FC is a club with passion, heritage and some excellent retro football shirts. Be sure to shop for yours below.
