Today is March 21st, and on this day in 1556, The Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer was burned at the stake. Meanwhile on Wearside, this date saw the final match in the club's first ever season in the football league with a resounding 5-1 win against Derby County in front of meager 3000 fans at the Newcastle Road ground.
Back to more modern matters though, here's today's news...
Starting off with yet more fall out from the Tyne-Wear derby, and hopefully the last of it. Both ourselves and Newcastle have been fined for the 'unpleasantness' in the game. We've been fined £20k, them up the road double that as it's not their first offence this season - CLICK HERE
