We Said

Lee Clark commented:

"I feel let down and it wasn't a very nice way to finish the season.

"We have played really well recently and I wasn't expecting that performance from my players.

"It was abysmal to say the least and I have let the lads know that.

"We've conceded two goals from our own set-plays which is disappointing and for the other we were asleep from a throw-in."


Having put a spoke in the wheel of both Manchester United and the Smoggies in their last two games, Newcastle were unable to withstand the challenge of Bolton, who claimed the title after this deserved victory.

Playing a similar brand of direct football to their first team, Bolton scored through Kevin Wolze on 22 minutes before Temitope Obadeyi doubled their advantage 16 minutes later.

At the other end Newcastle were barely in it, with both Ameobi and Troisi forced to come back deep to try and pick up the ball.

Within seconds of the restart, Bolton went further ahead as former Coventry striker Obadeyi netted his second of the evening.

And having replaced Mark Doninger with Jonny Godsmark at the interval, we were forced into a further change when Kris Gate limped out of the action with a knee injury that needed an ice pack on it.

Young Kieran Wrightson (son of former Mag Jeff) came off the bench for his second appearance at this level.

United then made their final change of the evening as scheduled, Ameobi completing just over an hour in his second comeback game before making way for Donaldson.

With five minutes remaining Newcastle reduced the arrears as David Edgar headed home his third goal of the season from Troisi's corner.

Celebrations then began at Leyland as news filtered through of Manchester City's defeat at Chesterfield by Sheffield United - meaning that Bolton were crowned Champions.
