Newcastle are in the quarter finals of the FA Youth Cup and will play at 7:00 pm tomorrow night at St. James’ Park against Chelsea, and it could prove to be a tough game for our lads.
Adam Armstrong – one of Newcastle’s best youngsters
So far in the competition, Newcastle have beaten Barnsley, Sunderland and Derby County,and now they are up against one of the best Academy Youth setups in England.
Chelsea have reached the FA Youth Cup final four times since 2008 and have won it twice in recent years, in 2010 and 2012.
Newcastle will have one of our most promising youngsters for some time in the line up – in local lad Adam Armstrong – and Newcastle will have done very well if we can get through tomorrow night.
If you can make it to the game, it would be good to go and support the youngsters, and hopefully there will be a number of future Newcastle stars on display, and a good turn out.
Newcastle have won the competition twice, first in 1962, when Bobby Moncur and David Craig were in the side, and in 1985 when Paul Gascoigne was the captain.
The last time Newcastle made the semi-finals was back in 2010, when we lost 2-1 on aggregate to Aston Villa, who were then beaten 3-2 on aggregate by Chelsea in the final.
If Newcastle are successful in beating Chelsea tomorrow night, we would face either Charlton, Arsenal or Everton in the two legged semi-final.
Admission at St. James’ Park tomorrow night will be £3 for adults and £1 concessions and the kick off is at 7:05 pm.
Howay The (Young) Lads!!
