Newcastle United fan group Wor Flags have unveiled their latest banner to a sold-out St James' Park - and it's a special one for new head coach Eddie Howe.

The flag was seen for the first time just before kick-off against Norwich with the message 'Eddie Howe's black and white army' as well as the quote 'make every day your masterpiece.'

The quote is a famous one from the late US college basketball coach John Wooden who has been an inspirational figure in Howe's career - and Wor Flags, as they did with the banner which welcomed Miguel Almiron, felt it important to deliver a personal message to Howe.

A spokesman told Chronicle Live : "We do try and bring that personal touch because it means a lot more - that quote, the research, it means much more than the generic things.

"So by doing what we do, hopefully, it means a lot to him.

"It gives a warm welcome to Eddie - it shows we do care as a fan base, we care about him, we want him to do well, and for him to bring his class into the club and push us on.

"We hope it means a lot to him. We hope it gives that backing to him and lets him know that we believe in him.

"The players will see that - that we believe in him.

"I can't remember the last time we had unity with a fanbase and a manager, you'd have to go back to Rafa - so it's been quite some time.

"This just feels like it is the start of something, a new era.

"By having that personal message it shows we support him, we support the players and we are right behind them and the manager."

The display was originally planned for the game against Brentford - which ended 3-3 - but due to Howe testing positive for COVID-19, the group had to re-plan.

It marks the fourth home game in which Wor Flags have been and their return has been welcomed by fans and the owners of Newcastle United.

The group are selling 2022 calendars made up of their displays with money raised goto to the Newcastle West End Foodbank.
