Former Falcons prop Ian Peel will be having his 122 appearances for the club recognised this evening as he becomes the latest great to be inducted into the club’s 100 club.
Part of the award winning hospitality offering at Kingston Park, the 100 club runs at most games throughout the season and recognises the achievements of Falcons players past and present, who have achieved 100 or more appearances in a Falcons shirt.
As part of his induction, Peel will be delivering a pre match Q&A with guests in the 100 Club hospitality suite before addressing supporters in the West Stand concourse along with Doddie Weir post match.
Peel said joined the club in 1998, and reflects on his time positively in this week’s match programme and is looking forward to being back at the ground.
“The Friday night games definitely have an atmosphere and they’re great games so I’m looking forward to coming along again and watching. My family are coming up as well so I should be watching the game with all of them as well.”
“Newcastle have really turned themselves around and the success is starting to come and the way that they’re playing is great, they’re doing a great job.”
“I still live in Gosforth, my wife is from Whickham and we still live in Gosforth with the two kids so I’ve still got strong ties to the area and always keep an eye out for the Falcons result.”
Tonight's game against Wasps kicks off at 7.45pm. Tickets are still available to buy online, in person from the Kingston Park Box Office or by calling the Falcons' 24 hour Ticket Hotline on 0871 226 6060 starting from just £15 for adults and £7.50 for juniors.
