Congratulations to the Newcastle United youth team who ran out 2-1 winners against Watford at St.James’ Park tonight.

This win puts the kids through to play QPR in the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup. Goals from Hoganson and Knight had sent United into a comfortable lead but Kalu’s goal for the visitors in the 79th minute made it a nervy last ten minutes.

Obviously our attention is almost exclusively on the first team but great to see the kids progressing and winning matches. Let’s hope there is a Gazza or Bobby Moncur emerges through the ranks as happened the twice Newcastle have won the Youth Cup.
