In the first half of Newcastle’s 2-1 home defeat to Everton, James Perch spotted a five pound note on the St James’ Park pitch and walked over to the crowd to give it back to its owner.

The Newcastle utility man found no takers, perhaps because the Sky cameras were rolling, and in the end gave it to one of the stewards who was facing away from the pitch.

Perch got a big cheer from the Newcastle support and in a season where we saw coins thrown from the crowd during the Manchester derby, this is much more heart warming in comparison.
