In Newcastle’s second group game today, the U21 sevens side beat Southern District 5-0 and we are top of the group with one game to go later today.
Michael Richardson warming up – he scored two goals in second game
Brad Inman scored the first goal and then both Sammy Ameobi and Michael Richardson grabbed two goals each, to give Newcastle a maximum 6 points after two games played in the group stage.
Brad Inman scored after only two minutes to start the ball rolling – so to speak – and Sammy Ameobi scored another brace – and that’s four goals in the two games today for the England U21 International, with local lad Michael Richardson getting the other two.
The final group game later today is against Leicester, who were beaten earlier by Southern District by a score of 2-0.
That’s 7 goals and none conceded in the first two games, and if we can get through to tomorrows’ knockout stage, we will like meet the top teams like Manchester City and Aston Villa.
Villa have won this competition five times – with Newcastle winning it for the first time last summer – and we are trying to make it two in a row this weekend.
Howay The Lads!!
