Newcastle United Kids Make Progress

10 years ago

The Newcastle United kids made it into the Northumberland Senior Cup semi-finals on Wednesday night.

The competition is an opportunity for Newcastle’s youngsters (NUFC Reserves/Under 21s) to play matches against local non-league sides, with a more physical challenge against older more experienced players.

North Shields are flying high this season and made it 95 goals in all competitions this season when they took a shock early lead through Kieran Wrightson, the Shields player lifting the ball over Jonathan Mitchell to put the home side one up.

A crowd of over 700 watched as United hit back with goals from Adam Campbell and Macauley Gillesphey (assist from Campbell) to reach half-time 2-1 up.

The second half saw a spirited North Shields try to get back into the match but it was North Shields lad Adam Campbell who finished things off with a great shot from distance for his second goal and a 3-1 final scoreline.

Newcastle United: Mitchell, Mbabu (Morgan 80), Satka, Good, Gillesphey, Roberts (Booth 75), Miele (Heardman 38), Bigirimana, Barlaser, Quinn, Campbell

Unused Subs: Pearson, Booth, Morgan, Drennan, Heardman
