John Alder's collection of Newcastle United memorabilia



2015-07-06 13:49:20

A special collection of Newcastle United memorabilia is to be auctioned early next year for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. The collection belonged to lifelong Newcastle supporter John Alder who died among 298 other passengers when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine. Alder was such an avid Newcastle fan, he missed just 1 of their matches(both at home and away) in 40 years. He had amassed a huge collection of match programs dating from the 1920s to the present day. More details about the sale will be released in the coming weeks and will be available to view at St James Park the day before the auction.
