Newcastle fans stage silent protest against Ashley

Newcastle United fans staged a protest march against club owner Mike Ashley before their 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

Newcastle fans staged a silent protest as they waved white ribbons when passing St James’ Park during a planned march through the city centre, says the Evening Chronicle.

Around 300 supporters gathered for the demonstration along Newcastle’s streets ahead of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool.

Angered and frustrated by a long list of moves by club bosses, the Time 4 Change group organised the rally in a renewed effort to oust owner Ashley.

The crowds carried placards and joined in chanting and singing against Ashley as well as director of football Joe Kinnear, who failed to bring in the promised big signings during the summer transfer window.
