ISAAC HAYDEN NEARING RETURN TO ACTION Isaac Hayden has handed Rafa Benítez a timely fitness boost ahead of Newcastle's next game against Wigan Athletic. The England under-21 international, who has missed United's last nine matches after undergoing an ankle operation, is back in full training and hopes to be available for the visit of the Latics. With seven fixtures to play in April, Hayden knows it’s a make or break month for the Magpies as they look to secure promotion back to the Premier League. And he has set his sights firmly on lifting the Sky Bet Championship trophy at the end of the campaign, admitting: "I'm not looking at second - we just want to make sure that we win the title."

History of Football: Newcastle United FC

Origins: The origin of Newcastle United Football Club itself can be traced back to essentially three local teams. The first was formed by the Stanley Cricket Club of Byker in 1881 and renamed Newcastle East End F.C. in 1882. A second local side – Newcastle Rangers – which had been formed in 1878 and first played in Gateshead, had then moved across the Tyne taking over an enclosed ground close to Leazes Terrace in 1880. This ground was referred to thereafter as St James Park.

In August 1882, a third club – Newcastle West End F.C. – was formed by West End Cricket Club which moved into St James' Park in 1886. Newcastle West End F.C. eventually merged with Newcastle East End F.C. taking over the lease on St James’ Park in 1892. In recognition of the merger the newly-unified club changed its name to Newcastle United the same year (though not legally recognised until 1895).
