Newcastle 3-1 Everton: Saint-Maximin steals the show



Newcastle beat Everton 3-1 securing back-to-back wins for the first time since the end of last season, the result takes Newcastle out of the relegation zone.

Allan Saint-Maximin earned the nights ‘man of the match’ award, earning praise from both managers. Howe described Saint-Maximin as ‘magic’, Lampard praised the Frenchman as ‘unplayable’.

The home side went a goal down in the 36th minute as Newcastle struggled to defend a set piece and the ball bounced of the Captain, Jamal Lascelles and went into the back of the net to give the toffee’s an early lead. The lead didn’t last long however as Lascelles headed against the crossbar from a Kieran Trippier, luckily the ball bounced off Everton’s Mason Holgate to bring the game back to a draw.

Saint-Maximin set up Ryan Fraser for Newcastle’s second goal as the Magpies beat Everton 3-1 to move out of the relegation zone and put pressure on the Toffees by moving within a point of them.

Newcastle’s third came from a Kieran Trippier free-kick from 25 yards to secure the three points.

The Magpies were able to put in a solid team performance to defeat a lacklustre Everton side to secure the three points on Tyneside however, it was Saint-Maxim taking all the plaudits.

The forward topped the charts for dribbles (13), ten of which were successful and won 14 of his 22 duels. He helped create three chances, had two shots on target and ten touches in the opposition box.

Everton could not deal with the French winger, causing their defence all sorts of issues, even linking up with new boy, Bruno Guimarães, to nearly make it four.
After the game, Howe said: “He’s such a special player. We’ve seen in the last few weeks that he’s got better and better since I’ve been here. I’m delighted with his performance today, he’s a real threat and he’s someone I’d hate to play against personally because you just can’t predict what he’s going to do.
“But he’s a match winner, and we’re going to need him at this level for the rest of the season.”

Everton boss Frank Lampard added: “Saint-Maximin on a night like this evening is pretty unplayable at any level of football.”

This was the first time Newcastle had won back-to-back games since the end of last season and it is something Howe hopes can catapult Newcastle up the league table.

“Consecutive wins in the Premier League are rare – they can change your status and elevate the club, but we have to stay calm and focus on the next game.

“There is a good feeling in the dressing room, confidence levels are building. Our navigating of the game in tight situations has improved. I hope to see a big psychological effect from this win.”

Newcastle are next in action this Sunday, as they host Steven Gerrards, Aston Villa, 14:00 kick off.

Sunday for Sammy Concert Cancelled For 2023 Due To Cost of Living



A popular charity concert will not be held in 2023 due to the cost of living crisis.

Sunday for Sammy, which is held in memory of North East actor Sammy Johnson, is a biennial event aimed at benefitting young performers.

The long-running event has featured the likes of Joe McElderry, Johnny Vegas, Brenda Blethyn, Denise Welch, AC/DC’s Brian Johnson and Mark Knopfler, Jill Halfpenny and Ant and Dec.

Tim Healy, who hosts Sunday for Sammy, said: “We’ve had lots of enquiries over the recent months asking when the next Sunday for Sammy will take place.

“We are very much aware at the moment that people are struggling with day-to-day living costs and are watching their pennies. Everything is becoming more and more expensive and that includes the cost of putting on a show the size of ours.”

He added: “We can’t in good conscious put on a show that we aren’t sure people can afford to be tickets for. It would be wrong to risk your money you have generously given us.

“So sadly we have decided that there won’t be a show in 2023. We’re going to wait until the time is right.”

At the end of September it was reported that STACK’s owner, Danieli Group, were hoping to bring the brand back to the heart of Newcastle after its Pilgrim Street site was demolished earlier this year, after becoming a firm favourite with locals and visitors since 2018. The pop-up, close to the Crowne Plaza hotel in the Stephenson Quarter, looked set to be a massive draw before STACK makes its permanent return to the city next year, was planned to feature a number of shipping container bars, a new take on its famous Hadrian’s Tipi, street food vans, a stage and large screen, all on one level.

But, it has now been announced that the proposed STACK festive pop-up won’t be happening anymore. Confirming the decision, Neill Winch, CEO of Danieli Group said that while it was sad news that the pop-up would no longer take place, it meant the company can forge ahead with the Worswick Chambers plan.

He commented: “We know how much people miss not having a STACK in Newcastle so we are concentrating our efforts on creating what will become a flagship site back where STACK first began,” he said.

“Work is well underway on the scheme with a view to being open in winter 2023.”

In recent weeks it has announced new developments in Lincoln, Durham, Bishop Auckland and Carlisle.
