Last Saturday couldn’t get much better for the traveling fans in the away end at Craven Cottage. Fulham were down to 10 men and the Magpies capitalized with three first-half goals. However, the fun wasn’t over for the Newcastle faithful who made the 2.5-hour journey.

Two days after signing with Newcastle, Garang Kuol joined the Geordie faithful in West London. Outside of enjoying a great football match, the new signing mingled with fans including Newcastle content creator Adam Pearson. Pearson mentioned that Kuol and his accompanying team were friendly to the fan base.

This type of interaction will pay dividends for the wunderkid. He may not be with his parent club for a while—Kuol will keep playing in Australia until January, then probably get loaned out to another European club outside of the United Kingdom because of potential work-permit reasons—but showing up to support Newcastle has supporters excited to see what he can accomplish with the club in the long-term.

“I’m looking forward to seeing his development out on loan and how he fits long term in the clubs' plans,” Pearson stated.
