Wor Flags have revealed the stunning Remembrance Day display that’s being prepared for tomorrow’s game with Bournemouth – and it looks set to be a special tribute ahead of tomorrow’s minutes silence at St James’ Park.
The group have created several sensational displays over the past few years, with their work creating some impressive spectacles as the players enter the field at St James’ Park, and this looks set to be another brilliant touch ahead of the minutes silence tomorrow.
They do need your support, however, with them urging fans in the middle tier of the Gallowgate to turn up on time and hold up the foil places on their seats during the minutes silence.
Please spread the word to those that you know who sit in the middle tier of the Gallowgate to hold up their foil during the minute silence!

Here’s what a spokesman from the group has told the Chronicle ahead of the display:
“With it being the 100th anniversary of one of the most important days in global history, the end of World War One, we thought it was deeply important to put football matters to one side and mark the occasion with the respect that it deserves.
“Remembrance is something which evokes a lot of emotion amongst generations past and present and we just wanted to show that Tyneside Remembers.”
A lovely touch from the guys at Wor Flags.
So, if you’re due to be sat in the middle tier of the Gallowgate stand, make sure you arrive in time for the minute’s silence and hold the foil on your seat above your head.
