Manchester United (a) Premier Reserve League
Half time: Man Utd 1 Newcastle 0
Full time: Man Utd 2 Newcastle 1
Newcastle Reserves lost a tepid encounter at Altrincham's Moss Lane ground to their Manchester United counterparts on Wednesday evening, as the reds completed a home and away double against Tommy Craig's lads.
The Magpies were behind after
just 31 seconds when Chris Eagles converted with a low shot for the home side,
with the Magpies barely having touched the ball.
Tommy Craig's boys rallied
near the end, with Andy Ferrell netting a fine solo effort in the 88th minute,
but this didn't disguise an uninspired display on a night when the Man United
keeper barely got his gloves dirty.
All in all not a great night to mark 100 toon games in a season for the boy Biffa - the fifth successive season he's carried his bat for the century - daft bugger.
Biffa with thanks to
Fink's Limo Service.
