This is how Newcastle United will pay tribute to the Queen in match against Bournemouth

Newcastle United will pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at Saturday’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

Newcastle United will join the footballing world in paying tribute to Queen Elizabeth II when they host Bournemouth at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

The visit of the Cherries to Tyneside will be the first time the Magpies have had the opportunity to pay their respects to Her Majesty since her sad passing last Thursday.

The Premier League postponed its fixtures last weekend as a mark of respect for the Queen but announced the latest round of matches will go ahead as planned, where clubs have been asked to honour her 70-year reign.

In a statement released by the Premier League, fans will be asked to join a minute’s silence, which will be followed by the National Anthem, God Save The King.

The TV screen and LED perimeter boards at St James’ Park will display tribute images to Her Majesty and flags, namely on top of the East Stand, will be flying at half-mast.

During the game, when the clock hits 70 minutes, fans will be invited to applaud the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Newcastle’s encounter with Bournemouth is one of seven top-flight matches to go ahead with Chelsea versus Liverpool and Manchester United v Leeds United postponed due to events surrounding the Queen’s funeral.

The State Funeral takes place on Monday, September 19, the last day of the United Kingdom’s 10-day mourning period.
