Steve Bruce was in attendance tonight as Newcastle Under-23s beat Norwich Under-23s 3-2. The young Magpies had goals by Rosaire Longelo, Luke Charman, and Tom Allan to get a second win on the trot.

It will have been a nice boost for the youngsters to know Steve Bruce was at the game. This is one aspect of Bruce that we think will be beneficial to the club going forward.
He has time for the youth players and that will help spur them on in their development. They have seen Matty Longstaff get his debut against Leicester City last month, and a moment like that will give them inspiration. Just last year it was Matty playing in these Under-23 matches but now he has progressed into the first team.
The Under-23s have been able to pull themselves out of the Premier League 2 Division 2 cellar with their two straight victories. They are now in 7th place after having a terrible start to the campaign.
