Behind the scenes with Wor Flags at St. James’ Park - the night before Newcastle United’s 1-0 over Chelsea.

St James’ Park has become a fortress again, a cauldron of noise only other clubs can dream about having - and a huge reason for that is Newcastle United supporters group Wor Flags and their quite incredible pre-match displays.

From giant surfers to player tributes, Wor Flags have produced countless spine-tingling displays, so perhaps it is no coincidence that Eddie Howe’s Magpies have only lost once on Tyneside in 2022.

But what you see on a matchday is only half the story, with a number of volunteers giving up their spare time to head to St James’ Park on the eve of the game and help put everything in place.

The latest installment was the Armistice day display prior to Newcastle’s 1-0 victory over Chelsea on Saturday. Red and black foil was put on supporters’ seats in the East Stand to create a poppy, which was on show when the stadium fell silent to remember those who gave their tomorrow for our today.
