Newcastle United and Wallsend Boys Club Find Out Soccer Sevens Opposition
Newcastle United, who won the competition in 2012, have today discovered who they will face in this year’s Soccer Sevens in Hong Kong next month.
Peter Beardsley’s young NUFC team will face HKFA U-23, hosts Hong Kong Football Club and Asian Champions Guangzhou Evergrande in Group A. There are four groups in all with Sunderland placed in Group B
As well as winning in 2012, Newcastle were runners up to Leicester last year.
The Guangzhou coach said;
“We’ve a difficult group with Newcastle United, they are very famous and have a great history, plus they are the 2012 Champions, so I think they will be favourites to win this group.”
Maybe as much interest will be centred on the Masters competition where a Wallsend Boys Club team will feature Peter Beardsley in a twelve team competition.
Wallsend will compete in their group with Hong Kong based teams Kowloon Cricket Club & USRC, plus a Rangers Legends team.
