It was a real bad FA Youth cup hangover for Newcastle Under 18s as they were smashed 5-1 by Everton on Saturday morning.

A first half hat-trick by blues winger Nathan Holland helped the home side to a four goal lead at the break, Harry Charsley getting the other.

Calum Dyson made it five in the second half before a late Louis Johnson effort gave Newcastle a very small consolation goal.

The midweek win over Sunderland (click here to watch highlights and penalty shoot-out) saw United put out a much stronger and experienced line-up and hopefully today was all just part o four young players’ education.
