Newcastle v Sunderland After Cup Win Over Barnsley

8 years ago

A Newcastle v Sunderland derby cup-tie is now scheduled after United’s kids beat Barnsley 2-1 in their away match in the FA Youth Cup.

Adam Armstrong scored two goals in the second-half and the NUFC under 18s survived a late scare when Barnsley pulled a goal back in the closing stages.

The Newcastle kids are attempting to emulate Bob Moncur and Paul Gascoigne in winning the Youth Cup for the third time in Newcastle United’s history.

United were the better team throughout but despite their domination failed to make it count in a goalless first half.

However, two quickfire Armstrong goals settled the nerves and United now can look forward to a home derby with the prize of a place in the last sixteen awaiting Newcastle or Sunderland.

Newcastle Under 18s: Pearson, Drennan, Satka, Gillespheym Booth, Olley, Gilliead, Kemen, Aarons, Quinn, Armstrong
