Good news today that Newcastle’s U21 sevens side won their first game in Hong Kong today.
Newcastle U21s seven side and opposition before the kick-off today
Newcastle won 2-0 with a couple of goals from Sammy Ameobi, against Hong Kong Football Club Captain’s Select side.
And Sammy scored both his goals in the first half in a game which kicked off on Saturday afternoon Hong Kong time – and it was a very comfortable win for our lads in the first group game, and we are the defending team in the annual Citibank Hong Kong Football Club International Soccer Sevens tournament.
Newcastle will play three group games today, and then tomorrow the remaining 16 teams will begin the knockout phase of the tournament.
In the other group game earlier today, Leicester had beaten Southern District, but there was never any doubt about the result with Newcastle looking good and completely dominating the game – we play the other two sides later today.
The Newcastle team was as follows – and it looks a very strong sevens side with lots of experience:
Jak Alnwick, James Tavernier (c), Paul Dummett, Michael Richardson (Steven Logan), Conor Newton (Remie Streete), Bradden Inman, Sammy Ameobi (Rolando Aarons)
