Thank you to all of you who voted in the Sponsor a Legend polls that have been running over the previous months. Thousands of you have voted for fifteen Magpies icons to be recognised with their names embossed in the new main stand seating.
The final round saw a double header of the 1970's and 1980's - and our biggest response yet. In the former, Pete Poore ran away with 60% of the vote. He will be joined by Bob Brittain and Dave Best, who picked up 15% and 10% respectively.
The 80's clearly brought memories back for many Magpies fans. Over 52% of you voted for Paul Thorne, whilst Trevor Senior was unsurprisingly a strong runner-up. Peter Morrell was the best of the rest in third.
In total, 15 players will be recognised with seats in their honour and are available to sponsor, are as follows:
