Following a 3-2 league victory over Swansea
City at Whitley Park on Monday, the sides met again at the
same venue in the Premier League Cup on Friday.
However the high point of the afternoon for a small crowd was probably the
Tyneside sunshine; the tie ending in an instantly forgettable
The Swans went closest in the 19th minute when Ryan Blair bulleted a long
range effort that hit the underside of the bar and may have crossed the line.
However the referee was unmoved and waved play-on as Freddie Woodman gathered the loose ball.
Peter Beardsley's side's only real chance came just after the half hour when
Sean Longstaff's goalbound shot hit a colleague and was deflected wide of
Callum Roberts then dragged the ball across the six yard box in the final
seconds of the second half but it ended goalless.
There was an uneventful debut at this level for Danish forward Elias Sorensen,
following his U18 bow last Saturday.
The goalless draw gave
United a point in their group stage. Trips to Bristol City (7th Nov) and
Southampton (2nd Dec) are next up in this competition.

That came about when disputes with their

This Day in History
Born Or Died:
1889 John Thomas
Inside right who began his playing career with
Spennymoor but ended a brief spell with Brighton when
joining United for a fee of £25 ahead of the 1911/12
What proved to be his sole senior outing came in a 1-1
draw against Manchester City at their Hyde Road ground
in early 1912.
Returning to Spennymoor the following season, Jack
enlisted in the Durham Light Infantry and was later
captured during the Battle of Ypres in 1915.
Successfully escaping from a German prison camp the
following year, Thomas earned the Meritorious Service
Medal ended the conflict as an operative in mainland
Later working in the Durham coalfield and living for a
time in Australia, Jacks' death was recorded on
Tyneside during 1947.
1899 Tom Mitchell
Outside left who had played for Tudhoe United and
his hometown club before moving to SJP in 1920 at a
cost of £100.
Tom's first team bow came in a 0-2 loss at Chelsea in
February 1921 and he became a regular starter
during the following season, making 22 starts.
However Mitchell's first team appearances would become
less frequent in subsequent years and he was a reserve
What proved to be his last senior outing was a 0-2 home defeat to Huddersfield
Town in March 1926 and Tom then joined Leeds United in
a £785 deal, helping his new side win promotion to
the top flight in 1927/28.
Joining York City in September 1931, Tom scored
his side's first-ever goal at their Bootham Crescent
ground the following year but hung up his boots soon
Working as an FA Coach, Mitchell spent several summers
coaching in Norway before becoming York manager in March 1937.
Serving as a pilot in the RAF during World War II, Tom
resumed his duties at the Minstermen's manager in 1946
before resigning in February 1950.
Appointed a club director thereafter and running a
sports shop in the town for many years, Tom passed
away in November 1984 at the age of 85.
1986 Scott Marshall born,
Reserve and Academy
player who made his debut in Newcastle's U17 side
during the 2002/03 season, appearing in the reserves for the
first time the following season.
Released by Newcastle in early 2006 after failing to
win a contract at SJP, Scott then spent some time with
Hartlepool United but didn't make a league appearance for them.
The left-sided winger then dropped into the Northern League with Bedlington
Terriers, later moves taking him on to Newcastle Benfield and North
1997 Dan Ward born, South Shields
Midfielder who agreed a scholarship at United
after a successful trial, debuting for the club's U18
side in a 0-1 loss at Arsenal during April 2014.
Dan was then blooded in the U21s at Whitley
Park in November of that year, coming off the bench to
score in a 7-0 victory over Team Northumbria in the
Northumberland Senior Cup.

Fairs Cup 1st Round
After receiving some rough treatment in the San
Siro as they drew 1-1 in the first leg, United knew
what to expect - and weren't disappointed.
Italian captain Giacinto Facchetti (aka "hacchetti")
singled Wyn Davies out for special treatment, while
Tommy Gibb was punched in the face by Roberto
Boninsegna - but escaped punishment.
With United 1-0 up, Inter 'keeper Lido Vieri was sent off for
punching referee Joseph Minnoy. He was later fined
£660 and banned from international football for three

CSKA Sofia (Bulgaria) (h) 2-2 (1-1)
UEFA 1st Round
After the eight goal hammering of Sheffield
Wednesday in the previous home game, this was
comparatively underwhelming - although the business of
making it through to the next round was achieved with
something to spare.
After CSKA took a shock lead when Harper was
lobbed from distance, Alan Shearer soon levelled with a
close range effort.
Paul Robinson then replaced Silvio Maric in the closing
stages and looked to have given the home side victory when
he diverted a Stephen Glass cross into the goal via his
The Bulgarians however equalised in the final seconds of the game
when one of their substitutes headed in at the far post.
Manchester City (a)
What proved to be United's last away win at Maine Road
came when Alan Shearer headed past old boy
Tommy Wright in the home goal.
Steve Caldwell made his league debut for the Magpies,
replacing injury victim Andy Griffin at half time. While
the young Scot did well though, it was the introduction of
livewire sub Lomana LuaLua that galvanised Newcastle into
a first league success in four attempts.
