Legends involved in those early games included Peter Beardsley, Bobby Moncur, Mick Martin and Kenny Wharton with the match in 2003 even featuring a cameo appearance by Manager at the time Sir Bobby Robson! The Club hosted the inaugural Legends Master Class back in 2005, with fans taking part in a day's training and match action at the Club's Academy. Since 2007, the action has moved back to St James' Park, with fans' favourites like Peter Beardsley, Mick Martin, John Anderson, John Carver, Alan Shoulder, Joe Allon and Ian Bogie thrilling the ever excitable St James' faithful.
