Turkish midfielder Emre came through 45 minutes of his comeback match tonight, and even managed to score a fine individual goal as Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United at St. James’ Park.
Emre – scored fine individual goal for Reserves
Newcastle went behind after just 55 seconds of the game when Sean Evans was there to put the ball in the net after Fraser Forster had managed to parry David Gray’s low shot.
But then after 25 minutes Emre got Newcastle back into the game as he evaded two Manchester defenders inside the penalty area, before hitting a nice left footed shot beyond goalkeeper Ron Robert Zieler from eight yards out.
Both sides had a player sent off near the end of the game when Wesley Ngo Baheng saw red following two yellow cards and James Eckersley was sent off for committing a professional foul.
This was the Reserves final game of the season and wraps up a good campaign for Adam Sadlerâ€™s men.
Newcastle Reserves: Forster, Ramage, Kadar, Edgar, Diatta, Tozer, Troisi, Emre, Carroll, Ngo Baheng, LuaLua.
Subs: Danquah, Soderberg, Marwood, Morri, Zamblera.
