Cup date set
Newcastle United U18s will begin their FA Youth Cup participation this season
with a visit to non-league Ilkeston FC in the Third
Round of the competition.
The tie will take place on Wednesday 16th
December with a 7.45pm start and a result must be achieved on the night - via extra time and penalties if
The Robins negotiated five rounds to get to this stage, seeing off three
other non-league sides before beating Burton Albion on penalties and then
recording a 4-1 victory over Shrewsbury Town.
Although they faced Darlington at home in 2011, this will be United's first
away visit to non-league opponents since a 6-2 success at Dulwich Hamlet back
The town of Ilkeston lies just off the M1 (near Trowell Services) in
Derbyshire, around 10 miles from
Derby. The postcode of their New Manor Ground is DE7 8JF.
The official Premier League website run a weekly "top ten" goals
slot and it's the turn of Newcastle United today with a fine selection - but
one that doesn't find room for Andy Cole, Peter Beardsley or Les Ferdinand.
Alex Gilliead/Macaulay Gillesphey(Carlisle United)
Arriving as a 63rd minute substitute at Luton on Tuesday night, it took Alex
just three minutes to register his third goal for the Cumbrians in what became
a 4-3 victory.
Birthday boy Macaulay was absent from the matchday squad for a fourth game.
Shane Ferguson (Millwall):
After Fergie's goalscoring heroics on Saturday, reality struck for the Lions
on Tuesday, as they were beaten 1-2 at Fleetwood Town in League One. The 17th
game of his loan period in all competitions lasted 63 minutes.
Ivan Toney (Barnsley):
Striker Ivan got 76 minutes of pitch time for the Tykes in a 2-3 loss at
Peterborough United on Tuesday, but was unable to break his duck on his fourth

Following a 2-1 victory away to Manchester United on Monday night, United's
U18 lads repeated that same score on Saturday, when Wolves visited Little
The young Magpies achieved a third successive home win but trailed within the
opening ten minutes, when Slovakian youngster Christian Herc shot home.
A foul in the Wolves box on Lewis Suddick then gave Louis Johnson the
chance to level from the penalty spot just before the half hour.
And the comeback was complete on the hour, when midfielder Shane Donaghey
netted with a free kick given for a foul on Johnson.
Unbeaten in their previous four outings, the visitors had lost some players to

The club issued this press release on Friday - it's also worth mentioning
that lobbying for extra transport provision began among supporters and the
official fan forum when the Everton game was a 3pm kick-off:
Newcastle United have agreed to underwrite the cost of additional Metro and
some local bus services on Tyneside this Boxing Day after the Barclays Premier
League fixture with Everton at St. James' Park was moved to a later kick-off
The game was originally scheduled to start at 3pm, but after being selected
for live television broadcast by BT Sport, it was switched to 5.30pm and will
now end shortly before 7.30pm.
With selected bus routes and Tyne and Wear Metro services originally running
until 6pm and 8pm respectively, the Club called a meeting with representatives
from Newcastle City Council, Nexus and Go North East and plans are now in
place to reduce disruption.
Metro services will now be in operation from Newcastle city centre for an
extra hour on all routes, with final services at approximately 9pm on Saturday
Fans travelling home by Metro after the game are advised to allow enough time
to make their journey.
Go North East bus services on routes 10A, 10B, 21, 47, 54, 56, 58, 309, 310,
Q3, Q3A, X1 and X30 will also operate extended hours with final services
between 7.40pm and 8.20pm. Park and ride services to the MetroCentre Coach
Park will also be in operation.
Nexus is also subsidising Boxing Day bus routes including the 27, the Quaylink
Q1, Q3 and Q3A services, the 53 and 54, the 309 and 310.
Normal fares will still apply to passengers on all Metro and bus routes and
Magpie Mover passes will be valid within existing terms and conditions.

The latest loan departure from Gallowgate that of left back Liam Gibson,

18 year-old Gibson has made a successful return to United's U21 side this
season after missing most of the previous campaign due to injury.
He made his debut on Saturday, starting against FC Halifax Town at
the International Stadium and played the first 63 minutes in a surprise 1-4
defeat that cost Tynesiders boss Malcolm Crosby his job a day later.
Gateshead have been a regular stepping stone for reserve team players,

After just nine days at Bescot though, Davies was installed as Forest boss once

After victories in Sofia and Zurich, United were
narrowly beaten in Rome's Stadio Olimpico after Laurent
Charvet fouled Marco Delvecchio in the box.
A 9.15pm kickoff and the inevitable post -match holdback
meant that the 2,000 away fans were still in the
stadium after midnight - although remaining in good
footage is online here

Andy Griffin and Mark Kinsella
a scene from the seventies as league leaders Villa Reserves extended
their unbeaten league record to 15 matches at Walsall's Bescot
Stadium with a 3-1 win.
Memories of Franny Lee and
Norman Hunter exchanging blows came flooding back as Griff and
Kinsella let fly with fists flailing.

UEFA Cup Group
Bowyer(29), Ameobi(46), Bellamy(75),
Passage into the knockout stages of
the UEFA Cup followed after an amazing success in France - our
first win on Gallic soil.
It was a night when it seemed like
nothing could go wrong for United and Sochaux even missed a penalty
which could have made it 2-1 and given us a nervy last half hour.

2012 Southampton (a)
United's third straight league defeat
came at a soggy St. Mary's, after home losses to West Ham and Swansea.
This time it was another of Pardew's former clubs, Southampton, who piled on
the agony and as well as conceding two shambolic goals, Tim Krul and & Co. had the goal frame to thank for keeping the score down.
