Newcastle Youngsters Beat Sunderland On Penalties


In the FA Youth Cup 5th round tonight between Sunderland and Newcastle at the Stadium of Light,  there was no score after 90 minutes and no score after extra time.

But it was the Newcastle lads who were finally victorious, winning the tense penalty shoot-out 3-1,  and our lads go through to the next round, the quarter-finals, but we will meet the powerful Chelsea side in the next round.

Chelsea beat Newcastle 3-2 at St. James’ Park in March last season in the quarter-finals, to knock us out of the tournament after we had been 2-1 up at half time.

Chelsea then went on to beat Arsenal 3-1 on aggregate in the two-legged semi-final, and won 7-6 against Fulham in the final, after losing the first leg 3-2.

They are the reigning Champions, having won three of the last five tournaments. 🙁

But we are again at home against the Blues and that should be a cracking game at St. James’ Park.

Sunderland only had themselves to blame tonight in the penalty shot-out, as they missed three of their four penalties.

Freddie Woodman the Newcastle U18 goalkeeper was the hero, as he saved two penalties from Dan Casey and Elliot Embleton, and Ethan Robson blazed over the cross-bar.

The only Sunderland player to score in the shoot-out was Blinco.

Even though there was no score over 120 minutes, it was still an entertaining game.

But when the extra time started it looked like Newcastle were going all out for the winner and Callum Roberts almost scored immediately, as the star youngster went down the right wing and his left foot shot was only just wide.

Both sets of players seemed to struggle with cramp in extra time, and Sunderland;s defender Michael Ledger should have received a second yellow card and been sent off,  when he deliberately handled the ball.

It was an excellent win by the Newcastle youngsters.

Teams:

Sunderland U18: Talbot; J Robson, Colquhoun, Ledger, Hume (Casey, 95); Greenwood, E Robson, McEvoy (Molyneux, 65), Blinco; Wright; Nelson (Embleton, 107). Subs not used: Lowrie, Purvis.

Newcastle U18: Woodman; Cobain, Newberry, Cameron, Laidler; Barlaser (Broccoli, 101), Drennan; Roberts, Longstaff, Ward (Heaney, 76); Armstrong. Subs not used: Holmes, Harker, Pollock.

    One of the great things about the Tyne Wear Derby is the respective kits. They are both splendid and ours at times a thing of beauty, although not always.

    DAVE King has insisted his consortium has won the battle to take over Rangers and will oust the current board at a extraordinary general meeting to be held in the coming weeks.

    The former Ibrox director said it will take an investment of around £25 million to take the club back to normality.

    The South Africa-based businessman owns 14 percent of Rangers and has called for an EGM to oust current directors David Somers, Derek Llambias, James Easdale and Barry Leach and appoint himself, fellow former director Paul Murray and former Tennent’s managing director John Gilligan. The board has until Friday to announce when the EGM will be held.

    well played

    what sort of club employs some1 to work out the money and decide there not worth entering

    is it not an honour to play in the fa cup the worlds most famous club comp and the oldest

    as for Europa league yes they do need look at the money in it, but it does offer exposure and if your lucky you can get some great ties in it, but there are benefits

    Well we have player coming back, and a more confident looking team, well except for the defence, but I honestly think we have enough to regain the bragging rights.

    OH dear! It’s a topical subject that could directly affect what happens at Newcastle. If you don’t like it don’t read it, but there are plenty of other with an interest in it.

    This is a Newcastle blog, but you do not just have to discuss the topic Ed has put up.

    As for fairy stories – funny how before the fa cup game they were fine, the game comes around, oops they’ve got niggles and then they’ve managed to play in every game since. Now that’s a fairy story.

    Suggesting who we SHOULD of bought is irrelevant as I’m no scout and that’s carr’s job but to leave us so obviously short, especially at CB IS negligence of the highest order. All in the name of penny pinching.

    You can make as many excuses as you like but it still doesn’t change the fact that the squad is short NOW. It’s as simple as that.

    I agree on Dave King, I think Ashley will have him for breakfast. But he thinks he’s on a winner. If Rangers gain promotion £25 million will not be enough to save them.

    Almost all of their players are out of contract at the and of this season.

    There is too much disparity in the competitions
    If the EL or FA cup paid realistic money Ashley would be at the front of the queue

    Is anyone else finding it a tad suspicious that all these relatively new posters suddenly appear backing the regime to the hilt on or around this January window, more so now that it’s closed. Funny that.

    The EL is being belittled by letting CL teams join once they’ve been knocked out CL.

    That needs to stop IMO for the completion to gain credibility

    I actually thought about it the other day mate, mentioned it was very strange, but not unexpected.

    I have always believed that this blog along with the others would be monitored by someone in the offices of the toon.

    The reason is when things are getting to boiling point there is always a statement or something released to change the direction of the masses.

    I thought straightaway that “Sports Direct” poster was something to do with the club.
    Obvious thing to do really – put their side of the story.
    Sometimes the “anti club clamour” on here gets way over the top

    Well Done Lads, always good seeing the youth side doing well. I am wondering though how many of the first team actually went and watched the match and cheered them on. Now that would be another great advert for the soccer family we portray at Newcastle.
