Pssst….can I tell you a secret?

Here’s what happened!

During a work recruitment drive event at St James Park Stadium – home to Newcastle United, my manager at the time was feeling quite adventurous and we basically had our own mini tour of the stadium.

I’d love to see what the inside looks like. Maybe one day…

Had to admit, it was quite creepy walking through these halls in the dark. The place is like a maze!

To be honest, we were trying to find the locker room but we couldn’t find it and according to the security guard, even if we did find it – it was locked anyway *bummer*.

But all was not loss, we found an unlocked door to one of the boxes which open up to the seats and stairs leading to the pitch! What to do at that point…we had walked all the way down to the pitch – those steps were quite steep like! Do this everyday and you will have buns and thighs of steel!

Oh and guess what! We sat on the benches where the Newcastle manager is meant to sit on in the dug out if that is what they are called, though we sat on the opposing teams dug out at first taking pictures until the kind lady who was working sitting next to us informed us that we were at the wrong benches haha!

I thought that gave us confirmation that we were permitted to be there *relieved*. I guess confidence and pretending that you belong goes a long way or perhaps not….

Here’s the thing, I never knew that we were not allowed to go and walked on the grass? There were no signs or anything, I am not sure what the reason is either because if you think about it, there were a couple of lads playing/practising football at the time! I mean, isn’t the pitch meant to be walked or run on anyway? *go figure*

But you only live once right so I took a cheeky picture next to the pitch haha!

Please don’t sue us, we are quite harmless really!

 

Till the next one

p.s: That is not my voice in the video haha!
