Serb settles nerves
Newcastle 1 West
climbed out of the bottom three with a nervy but priceless victory over West
Bromwich Albion, thanks to a rare Aleksandar Mitrovic goal at St. James'
Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Serbian tucked the ball past Ben Foster just after the half hour and
minutes after Cheick Tiote had an effort disallowed, just like he had
against Manchester City two season ago.
Steve McClaren's side dominated the game in every area against an abysmal
Albion side and they should have had a hatful.
As it was, United had transfer target Saido Berahino and his fellow
substitute Salomon Rondon for letting them off the hook in the final minutes
when they should have claimed an underserved equaliser.
Steven Taylor made his first appearance since August and showed great
commitment alongside Fabricio Coloccini while Rolando Aarons filled in at
left back again.
In truth, any defensive line-up would have been untroubled by an incredibly
negative Tony Pulis side and Rob Elliot had one of his quietest days in a

Newcastle U18s 0 Everton U18s 8 (EIGHT)
U18 side returned to home action for the first time in 2016 on Saturday
afternoon - but were soon trailing at a damp Little Benton.
Just seven minutes were on the clock when home defender Owen Bailey tripped
visiting striker Shayne Lavery outside the box and was shown a red card.
And from the resultant free kick, Anthony Evans curled a right footed effort
over the wall and into the corner of Ben Smith's goal to put the Toffees
Inevitably the visitors pressed on in search of further goals and after
missing numerous chances, doubling their lead in the 43rd minute when Evans
turned provider for Lavery to lob the advancing Smith.
The visitors went goal crazy after the break. Spencer Myers made it 0-3
after 63 minutes from close range and the fourth followed two minutes later
when Lavery grabbed his second.
Morgan Feeney got the fifth in the 76th minute from a corner and Lavery
completed his hat-trick by firing home via a post in the 83rd minute.
Evans completed his treble, sweeping the ball in with four minutes remaining
to make it 0-7 and the scoring was complete in added time with Evans
grabbing his fourth.
Team: B.Smith, Todd, Le.Gibson (Aziakonou 75), Donaghey, Pollock,
Bailey, Spooner (Long 84), Aplin, Allan, Owusu, Lowther (Kitchen 46).
Subs n/u: Johnson, Harker.

The leagues reform for a playoff
competition later this month, when the two 12 team divisions combine into
three eight team leagues made up of the 1st-4th, 5-8th & 9-12th place
finishers in each division.
Each club then plays the other seven teams in their new
league once - home or away. As things stand, Newcastle can look forward to
games against Derby County, Stoke City, Manchester United, Brighton, Norwich
City, Southampton and Swansea City.

opinion on the severity of his ailment, while Paul Dummett also misses out on
Saturday with a hamstring problem.

England's Euro 2016 campaign continues and there are further indications that
Roy Hodgson's team will play a warm-up game in the North East.
Seeking to emulate the tournament conditions they'll experience in France,
England are looking at a trio of home friendlies: one game in the North East,
one in the North West and then one at Wembley.

around May 27th, with the Telegraph tipping wearside as the more likely

time for Tiote
Want-away midfielder Cheick Tiote
remains at SJP after his failed move to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua last
month - but there's still time for a revived deal to go through.
That's because the transfer window for the Chinese Super League remains open
until late February.
The 29 year-old Ivorian is under contract at SJP until 2017.
Reports in France on Monday claimed that Olympique Marseille had completed the
necessary paperwork to convert Remy Cabella's loan move from Newcastle
into a permanent transfer.
However there's been no formal confirmation from either club as yet over the
current status of the 25 year-old midfielder who has made 26 appearances in
all competitions for OM to date, scoring four times.
Local interest in both national non-league cup competitions remains, with
Gateshead in the last
sixteen of the FA Trophy and Morpeth Town and Dunston UTS in
the FA Vase Quarter Final draw.
