Adam Armstrong scored a great goal yesterday and that was the decider in a close Derby County vs Newcastle U18 game, for the right to be in the quarter finals of the FA Youth Cup.
Adam Armstrong – U18 side in the last 8 of the FA Youth Cup
The 17-year-old forward scored the only goal of the game after 60 minutes at Derby, and our youngsters will now face either Cardiff City or Chelsea at home in the next round.
Chelsea usually have a very strong Youth side, and recently they have won it in 2010 and 2012, and were also beaten finalists in 2008 and 2013, so that could be a difficult game for our lads to reach the final four.
This is what Adam tweeted after the game:
“Buzzing to beat derby 1-0 and glad to grab the goal! Away fans were quality to!! Can’t wait for the next round now.”
And if you haven’t seen the highlights – including Adam’s goal – here’s our report from yesterday.
Newcastle have won the FA Youth Cup twice – in 1962 and 1985.
