Newcastle United’s Youngsters Milking It

12 years ago

Competing in the competition for the first time since 2005, Newcastle’s kids got their Milk Cup campaign in Northern Ireland off to a great start on Saturday.  United running out comfortable 4-0 winners over County Fermanagh, with goals from Alex Gilliead, Adam Campbell and Greg Olley (2).

Just in case you thought this tournament was a walkover for teams representing Premier League clubs, County Tyrone beat Manchester United 2-0  and County Armagh held Tottenham to a draw.

Newcastle have two more confirmed fixtures and face Mexican side Pachuca  in Ballymena (see photo) on Monday (6pm), then on Tuesday (7pm) they are up against CSKA Moscow in Ballymoney.

Further participation will depend on how they get on in those two upcoming matches.

If you need inspiration for a birthday (or any kind of) present why not get them the new DVD, or something equally class from The Mag’s Amazon Store, or why not treat yourself!
