After thousands of Newcastle United supporters experienced rail disruption today, Tottenham Hotspur supporters can anticipate a diminished away end.


All southbound services between Newcastle and King’s Cross were canceled this morning by LNER, the primary rail operator in the area. For many of the 3,000-strong Toon contingent that was scheduled to travel to the capital, the news was devastating.


Supporters of the Toon were negatively impacted by emergency cancellations due to damage to the overhead cables connecting Peterborough and Grantham. Fans were forced to make last-minute arrangements or cancel their journey altogether due to an announcement made by LNER at sunrise.


According to a statement, “the lines between Peterborough and Grantham remain blocked today to allow repairs to be made to the overhead line.” “Tickets dated December 9 or 10, 2023, may be used for travel by customers.”


As an alternative, you can get a refund at the store where you made the purchase. The following train operating companies accept your ticket at no additional cost: TransPennine Express connects York/Newcastle, Leeds, and Manchester. The East Midlands Railway connects Sheffield, Leicester, and London St Pancras. West Coast between London Euston, Glasgow, and Edinburgh; Cross-Country between Sheffield, Doncaster/Leeds; and Avanti. We are sorry for any disruption this may have caused to your travel plans today.


The Newcastle United Supporters Club, who have been liaising with away fans, described the setback as “near impossible” to solve. LNER have advised Newcastle fans travelling by train against making their way to north London today.


The nightmare for visiting supporters hands Tottenham a boost ahead of their Premier League showdown this afternoon. Spurs are aiming to exert revenge on the Magpies for the 2-1 home defeat inflicted last season.
