NEWCASTLE are delighted to welcome baby ferrets to their football club, with owner Dave King signing a new contract.
The ferrets were born in the club’s new training ground at Eastleigh, south east England, and were brought in as part of a three-year-old project by the club to improve training facilities.
Owner Dave King said the babies were just one of the many benefits the new stadium would bring to the city.
“The new stadium is going to give us an opportunity to bring in baby ferres,” he said.
“We’re not going to be putting them on the pitch at first, but it’s going to bring them onto the pitch, which is going on the ground.”
They’re going to get some great training sessions with us and we’ll be working with them.
“I think it’s a great thing for the city, it’s really good for the club, it will allow us to have better facilities, better facilities for the kids and hopefully help us grow our brand.”
It’s going a long way.
“King added that the babies had not yet received their first set of training wheels.”
As soon as they get to the training ground, they’re going into the cage and it’s all over.
“We’ve got them in the first set for now, but hopefully they’re in the cages soon.”
In February, the ferrets also became the first ferret breeds to be named after the Premier League champions, with Ferrets for Newcastle becoming the first breed to be called Ferret.
