Blind Newcastle United Fan Has Club Crest Etched Onto Eye Glass (PICTURES)

A blind Newcastle United fan can now scrutinise the Magpies' matches through his own "blinkered" glass eye.

Andrew Canavan, 35, has had the club's crest etched onto his glass eye in the latest example of Geordie commitment to the Toon.

Newcastle have won their last four Premier League games, which makes Canavan's optical choice a timely one.

The glass eye was made by a specialist in Blackpool for just over £150 and fanatical fan Andrew says he is "over the moon" with the result.

"I've had some snide comments from Sunderland fans on Facebook, but that is only to be expected," he told the Mail.

'When some people lose an eye they are devastated, but I saw it as an opportunity to do something unique."
