Helping Set up Steve Harper's 20 Years' Charity Match

We are delighted to announce our involvement in setting up NUFC’s retired goalkeeper, Steve Harper’s 20 years’ charity match that involved 30 Newcastle United FC legends against 19 former players of AC Milan. We helped facilitate connections and advised Steve Harper and Newcastle United Foundation. The match achieved an almost capacity crowd of over 51,000 people in September 2013.

The charity match raised over £300,000 for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, The Great North Children’s Hospital and Newcastle United Foundation.

Steve Harper commented: “John Devine and the Muckle LLP team were involved right from the start, helping me to pull the event together and arrange a formidable opposition team in AC Milan Glorie. Thanks again to everyone at Muckle for your help and support.”

Franco Baresi added: “I was very keen for us to be part of the celebration. I spent the same amount of time at AC Milan so I understand what it means. AC Milan had never played at St. James’ Park before and it was an incredible experience. We were delighted with the support given to us by the Muckle LLP team.”
