BOYBAND One Direction may be heading to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light last year – but it was Newcastle United who snapped the stars up first.

The singers showed off their football skills last month when they got to join the Magpies for a training session.

Stars Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson joined in at Newcastle’s benton training ground, and were pictured in the famous black and white stripes.

The band will kick off the UK leg of tour at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday, May 28, 2014.
