After an online video which generated over 30,000 views after
only 3 weeks, starring Jonas Gutierrez, Danny Simpson, Mehdi Abeid and Ryan
Taylor, Phil Pearson and Ryan Kelsey were the two lucky people chosen to take
part in the Pulman crossbar challenge.
Ryan Kelsey commented: “It was a dream come true to walk
onto the sacred pitch. Surprisingly I wasn’t as nervous as what I thought; it
was a brilliant moment stepping out in front of 50,000 fans. Both my wife and
myself had a fantastic day.”
Both Ryan and Phil won two tickets to watch the game live,
an exclusive backstage tour before the game, to take part in the Pulman
crossbar challenge at half time and a signed Newcastle United T-Shirt.
Phil Pearson commented: “It was great to have the
opportunity to take part in the crossbar challenge; I was even more excited to
go to the game and step onto the pitch. The day was great especially with the
backstage tour beforehand.”
Both Ryan and Phil had three chances to hit the crossbar
from the 18 yard line. If they hit the bar twice they would have won the brand
new Volkswagen up! Ryan came very close hitting the bar once and was
millimetres away from hitting it a second time. CLICK HERE

Natalie Wilson, Marketing Manager at Pulman commented, “the
whole day was fantastic, I only wish that either Ryan or Phil would have won
the car, unfortunately that was not meant to be this time. However we look
forward to providing more win a car competitions’ in conjunction with Newcastle
United in the future.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Ryan and Phil for
taking part in the Pulman crossbar challenge, along with Newcastle United and
Just Out Marketing who produced a fantastic video which started this whole
