While the senior team had the weekend off… both the Under 21s (reserves) and Newcastle United under 18s were in action.
A strong United Under 21 line-up went down 4-3 at Reading, Curtis Good made his long awaited competitive comeback after injury, while the likes of Bigirimana (came on as a sub), Vuckic and Armstrong also were involved.
It was also defeat for the Under 18s who travelled to Derby, the only consolation in the 3-1 defeat being an excellent goal from Jamie Cobain. The United youngster cutting in from the right and hitting a great left foot finish.
