The Newcastle United U23 team were at the Stadium of Light last night for a Premier League International Cup quarter-final.
It was an exciting game and a good performance from both teams and we finally won the game after it finished 2-2 after extra time.
We won 11-10 on penalties.
It should been all positive news for Newcastle but it wasn’t because a number of seats were damaged where the Newcastle fans were housed behind one of the goals.
Newcastle United have issued an official statement on the situation:
“Newcastle United is aware of the unacceptable behavior of a number of its supporters who attended last night’s Under-23s match against Sunderland AFC at the Stadium of Light.”
“The club is very disappointed to hear of the actions of a small group of individuals and will do everything it can to help the police identify those responsible and hold them to account.”
This kind of thing does nothing for the image of Newcastle and it’s only a very small number of fans.
But it hurts our club nevertheless.
