Social Events

We hold at least 4 social events per year at St. James Park. This includes an Easter party, End of Season social, Player of the Year night and Christmas Party.


We engage regularly with members through our newsletter the Toon Times and our magazine Toon Times Extra. We also run competition and hold prize draws.


We have an excellent working relationship with NUFC, and work closely with club officials on disability related matters.

Away Trips

We run away trips for our members as often as we can given travel and ticketing constraints, We aim to run 2 away trips per season.
