A hardy 105 Newcastle fans travelled to Port Vale last month, amongst a total attendance of 824.

The young Newcastle team playing their second group match in the Checkatrade Trophy, having previously won at Crewe in their opening game.

They lost that game and now face Oldham away tonight (kick-off 7.30pm), needing to win to progress from the initial group stage of the Checkatrade Trophy.

Rolando Aarons has been named in the following team:

Newcastle United

Harker, Sterry, Cameron, Gillesphey, Good, Barlaser, Roberts, Ward, Aarons, Fernandez, McNall

Oldham are currently 18th in League One but are hot favourites to win tonight, with Newcastle United’s team at massive odds of 9/2 to get the win (see betting below).

Good luck to the young Newcastle team tonight.

The competition kicks off with a regional group stage (North and South) involving 16 groups (eight north and eight south) of four teams – each with a single Category One Academy club. The tournament format sees Newcastle play all three group games away from home, as do the other Academy sides.

Group stage winners and runners-up advance to the knockout stage, with ties settled on penalties if the scores are tied after 90 minutes. All of the 16 Category One teams must name at least six players in their starting eleven under the age of 21.

    1-0 down at the mo – normal service has been resumed. I loved Peter Beardsley as a player – my favourite ever for NUFC and England – but how is he still in this job?

      Subservient scycophancy – sad

      I’ve seen a quite a few second string games over the last couple of years and frankly there’s not much quality coming through Barlaser and Fernandez apart.

      Most players with any promise seem to go backwards under Peter’s coaching, the stand out example being Roberts who looked a great prospect, on the verge of the first team, but looks clueless now.

      Peter should have been released with Geordie John and Stoney.

    Now 3-0 ffs

    Think it’s high time Pedro got pedaled good player but has an abysmal record for bringing anybody through to senior level, he seems to be in a comfort zone also.

    Hmmm…blaming Beardsley is like blaming Barnsley or Bolton that Armstrong has failed to push on ( he was doing fine before he left!). If these young players are any good, and I am talking the last 10 years, why don’t they push on when they leave? Maybe they just aren’t good enough and as far as I know Beardsley isn’t the one bringing in these players, who, erm, just aren’t good enough. Woodman is a prime example of a Keeper ready for the premiership as he is only a small step behind Pickford. Watch him go to some other club and play for England (Foster?). It isn’t Beardsley that is the problem as he has done a great job with Sean Longstaff.

    Anyone who saw Beardsley play will remember those goals he set up on a plate for Cole. If he took the chances himself, rather than always pass the perfect pass, he would be remembered in the same breath as George Best, yes he was that good.
    Beardsley, Tony Green, Gazza…in that order!

  • We desperately need proper coaches and manager for the U23s, Beardsley hasn’t pushed a single player through in years. I saw a few games this and last year and we were very poor, especially wide players and holding midfielders, and this was against teams we should be beating by a margin.
