Shola Ameobi Piles On The Pounds

The good people at NUST have got their sticky mits on a signed Newcastle United shirt and decided to auction it off to one of you lucky people!

The strip belongs to none other than Toon hitman Shola Ameobi and has been signed by the entire first team squad, but the best news yet is that NUST have promised to donate 100% of the proceeds to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

The shirt was worn in the memorable 2-1 victory over Sheffield United at SJP as Newcastle secured their return to the top flight of English football.

I expected a couple of hundred pounds to be raised but it turns out my pockets are nowhere near deep enough. The current bid for this historic item is at an astonishing £1,070! If you can afford it you can make a bid here but if you can't, why not donate whatever you can to this worthy cause.

--- UPDATE ---
This item was sold for an astonishing £4,800. Thanks Toon Army.
