The Strawberry, a Newcastle United-themed pub situated right next to St James’ Park has been re-christened ‘La Fraise’ to honour the
four (update) five new French players signed in the January transfer window, increasing the number of Frenchmen in Newcastle’s squad to ten.
The re-named Strawberry was unveiled last Friday when owner Michael Hill put up a banner to replace the pub’s traditional English name.
