Steve Harper's 20 years of service to Newcastle United will be remembered when an NUFC XI take on AC Milan Glorie at St James Park.
Some of the biggest names to have worn Newcastle United's famous black and white stripes in recent history will return to the St. James' Park pitch later to honour goalkeeper Steve Harper's 20-year spell at the Club.
