Good luck to young Newcastle stars against Sunderland tonight

5 years ago

It is Sunderland v Newcastle tonight, as the young stars of both teams look to try and make it through to the last eight of the FA Youth Cup.

The 60s and the 80s saw stars such as Bobby Moncur and Paul Gascoigne lift the Cup for Newcastle, before going on to enjoy stellar careers at senior level.

It goes without saying that it would be great to see somebody of a similar stature emerge from this era.

Sadly, Sunderland have downgraded the match by moving it from the Stadium of Light to Eppleton Colliery Welfare ground (also called the Hetton Centre) in Hetton-le-Hole.

It is a 7pm kick-off with admission prices set at £3 for adults and £1 concessions, with the added bonus of extra time and penalties for your money, if needed to settle the issue.

Good luck to the Newcastle lads tonight, the closest we will see to a proper derby this season after Sunderland slid out of the FA Cup in the third round.

Recent form suggests Newcastle have a great chance despite the away tie, having won in the FA Youth Cup away at Sunderland on penalties in 2015.

In addition, NUFC won in the Premier League Under 18s match earlier this season on Wearside, a singe goal enough to bring the points back to Tyneside.
