Newcastle United News – Kids Knocked Out Of Cup

8 years ago

The Newcastle United news this Tuesday afternoon is that the kids have followed the senior team route and sadly been knocked out of the League Cup.

Newcastle United under 21s travelled to Birmingham today and there were plenty of players with first team experience in the following squad;

Jak Alnwick, Rolando Aarons, Sammy Ameobi, Gael Bigirimana, Adam Campbell, Macauley Gillesphey, Curtis Good, Massadio Haidara, Brandon Mele, James Morgan, Jonathan Mitchell, Greg Olley, Jonathyn Quinn, Lubo Satka, James Tavernier, Haris Vuckic

Out of that squad the following eleven were selected;

Alnwick, Tavernier, Bigirimana, Haidara, Satka, Aarons, Gillesphey, Miele, Sammy Ameobi, Vuckic, Campbell

The Under 21 Premier League Cup match kicked off at 2pm but remained goalless right up until the 78th minute when Birmingham’s Aaron McLean gave the home side the lead.

Then with only a few minutes to go it was United’s Rolando Aarons who levelled things for the visiting United kids.

Sadly though it wasn’t meant to be and Birmingham scored very late on to send United out of yet another cup competition and Birmingham City through to the last sixteen.
