SGM has made the editorial decision that it will begin covering Newcastle United F.C. on its North East social media pages, as part of its ambitions to expand into the rest of the region.
For several years, SGM pursued an editorial policy of non recognition concerning NUFC in alignment with its Sunderland based goals and focus. However, as our scope has grown this has become increasingly untenable. It is impossible to commit to covering the entire region while neglecting Newcastle’s fanbase.
While our priority and loyalty remains steadfast to SAFC and to Wearside as a Sunderland organisation, we will nonetheless begin using the North East page alone and commit to impartial, professional and non tribalist reporting on the topic.
