Papiss Cissé and Jonny Evans are in trouble with the FA after replays from the Magpies match against Manchester United appear to show Cissé and Evans spitting at each other.
Shepherd, the company building Hitachi's new train-making factory in County Durham is showing schoolchildren around on Friday.
The site, at Newton Aycliffe, is still under construction, and today's event is designed to inspire youngsters to consider a career in construction.
Striker Papiss Cissé has accepted an FA charge after allegedly spitting at Jonny Evans in Wednesday's Premier League match at St James' Park, Newcastle have announced.
Managing Director Lee Charnley has now said:
Cissé has been Newcastle's most prolific goalscorer this season, scoring eleven goals:
- Papiss Cissé - 11 goals
- Pérez - 5 goals
- Jack Colback - 3 goals
- Moussa Sissoko - 3 goals
- Rolando Aarons - 2 goals
- Sammy Ameobi - 2 goals
- Yoan Gouffran - 2 goals
- Emmanuel Riviere - 2 goals
The Senegal forward could face a ban of up to seven matches.
The Magpies have only ten games left in the Premier League this season.
The North East is the proud home to several paralympian heroes, including the field athlete Stephen Miller, swimmer Josef Craig and wheelchair racer Jade Jones.
Today, all three gave their backing to a sports festival in Durham to encourage people with disabilites to become involved in sport and maybe even one day compete for their country.

Papiss Cissé and Jonny Evans have both been charged by the Football Association for allegedly spitting at each other.
The Newcastle striker and the Manchester United defender have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E1[a] following an incident in Wednesday night's Barclays Premier League clash between the clubs at St James' Park which was not seen by the match officials.
An FA statement read: "Newcastle United's Papiss Cissé and Manchester United's Jonny Evans have both been charged by the FA following their game yesterday [Wednesday 4 March 2015].
"The charges are in relation to an alleged breach of FA Rule E1[a] in that in or around the 38th minute of the game the two players spat at each other. The incidents were not seen by the match officials but caught on video."
Women in the North East, who've experienced female genital mutilation, are being urged to come forward and report their experiences.
No one in the UK has been convicted over the practice, which is illegal.
Now, the Crown Prosecution Service in our region says it wants victims to know they will be taken seriously.
