In partnership with the @premierleague, Dan Burn and Nick Pope met with participants from the Goal-E programme - an initiative that uses football as the driver to teach professional development and life skills.

After his side's 2-1 win over Brighton in their final match of the Summer Series, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe was blown away by the passion for the club Stateside.
"It was amazing," Howe said. "It was really nice to walk around at the end. You could see some familiar faces from Newcastle, you could see new faces wearing Newcastle shirts.
"It’s building that global support, these trips - that’s part of what we’re here for. I’ve met a lot of American Newcastle supporters that are really passionate about not just the team now but the history of the club. Hopefully we’ve entertained them and hopefully we gained a few more supporters."
