Amanda Staveley and Newcastle owners celebrate with kickaround at St James’ Park

Newcastle United's owners were spotted celebrating their win over Crystal Palace with a kickaround on the St James' Park turf.

Amanda Staveley, Jamie Reuben and Mehrdad Ghodoussi enjoyed themselves on the pitch after watching their side edge out Palace 1-0. Ghodoussi showed some neat control as he and Reuben pinged the ball between each other while Staveley waved to some fans who had stuck around post-match.

The clip shared by journalist Jordan Cronin was a major hit with the Toon faithful. One tweeted: "I love this, they really love the club/city and the fans. This is not about making as much money as possible from the club like most owners. They get the fans and they are having fun."

Another echoed: "Our owners are literally having the time of their lives. They’re loving this so much." While a third joked: "You shouldn’t have posted that video Sunderland just put a bid in for Jamie Reuben."

PIF Chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan was also in attendance for his third home match since the Saudi-backed takeover was completed last October. And he was treated to a stunning decisive goal when Miguel Almiron found the top corner with a curling effort in the first half.

Where will Newcastle finish next season? Let us know in the comments section.

The win drew Newcastle up to 11th in the Premier League table and onto the fabled 40 points mark following a massive turnaround on Tyneside. Eddie Howe's side have picked up maximum points in nine of their last 13 games.

Clearly happy with the progress, Ghodoussi posted: "What can I say……40 f***ing pts….so proud of this team, of this club, of this city!! We are one and we are nothing without each other!! Let’s keep this going, our journey is just beginning !!"

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Howe said: "It’s a great night for the football club. You can forget how hard it’s been to get us into this position now. We have to look back with great satisfaction. I say it every week but this is a great place to play football. The all-round atmosphere was brilliant to experience."
