new PR agency to join its recently-appointed manager Kenny Dalglish.



Leeds-based Rawlings Financial PR has supplanted Citigate as Newcastle’s

financial PR consultancy and will advise the club on its forthcoming

stock market flotation.



The agency switch comes just four months after Citigate was hired to

help prepare the float. It picked up the business last September through

sister agency Westminster Communications, which worked for Cameron Hall

Developments - owned by Newcastle chairman and owner Sir John Hall.



Rawlings Financial is believed to have won the account through its

relationship with Mark Corbidge, who was appointed joint chief executive

of the club in October.



Kevin Keegan’s resignation as manager last week raised questions about

the likelihood of a Stock Market flotation. The proposed listing in

spring would value Newcastle United at around pounds 160 million and

raise funds for a new stadium.
