Newcastle Youngsters Play QPR In FA Youth Cup Tonight

The strong Newcastle United Under-18 side continue their FA Youth Cup campaign on Thursday night with a Fourth Round trip to Queens Park Rangers in London.


17 year-old Nile Ranger – 18 goals for Newcastle sides this season

The lads have done very well this season, and we are hoping they can do extremely well in this year’s competition, and now with Newcastle out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle, we’re hoping even more for a good ruin by the youngsters.

Newcastle beat Oldham Athletic in the third round 18 year-old Kazenga LuaLua scoring both goals in the 2-1 win.

But Youth Academy Director and Reserve Team Coach Richard Money will be without Kazenga for the North London clash as he was used last night as a substitute in Wednesday’s surprising FA Cup defeat by Hull City.

Captain Ryan Donaldson and impressive striker Nile Ranger were also on the bench last night but are included in the following squad which travels to London for the game.

Newcastle United Under-18 – squad:

Jak Alnwick, Max Johnson, Matthew Grieve, Dan Leadbitter, James Tavernier, James Taylor, Jeff Henderson, Paul Dummett, Conor Newton, Ryan Donaldson, Brad Inman, Shane Ferguson, Michael McCrudden, Nile Ranger, Dan Williams, Greg McDermott, Stephen Folan, Dan Neary

The winners of this tie tonight will face a trip to a strong Manchester City side, who beat Portsmouth 1-0 at Fratton Park last night.

Tonight’s game is a 7pm kick-off at Loftus Road and we will bring report of the game, once it’s over.

Let’s hope the bairns can win this one.

Howay The Lads!!

    Ed do you know anything about us apparently signing Caio Ferreira

    ‘Newcastle snap up Brazilian striker Caio Ferreira Newcastle United are dealing in Brazilian youngster Caio Ferreira.

    Reports in Brazil claim 18-year-old forward Caio Ferreira has signed a contract with the Magpies.

    Ferreira has signed a three-year deal with Newcastle and carries an Italian passport.’

    I wonder if he’s any good.

    JK spouts off to the press everyday, he doesn’t need a press conference.

    might try and pop along to loftus road tonight to try and get over the disappointment of the first team – anyone else in London today and fancy coming along?
