Cup of joy
Charlton Athletic U18s 2 Newcastle U18s 3
Newcastle's U18 side beat Charlton Athletic
in the FA Youth Cup Third Round this evening at The Valley.
Level 1-1 at the break, after Ben Parkinson opened the scoring in the
14th minute only for Daniel Kanu to equalise a minute before half-time.
The home side took the lead through Toby Bower six minutes into the second
half but the young Magpies hit back and scored twice through Parkinson
(57mins) and then Johnny Emerson (71mins) to make it into the Fourth
Team: to follow.
United had never played the Addicks in this competition before.
Charlton entered this season’s competition in the First Round, reaching this
stage thanks to home victories over Kingstonian (9-0) and Northampton Town
Last season the young Magpies got to the Fifth Round, following up a fine
3-2 away win at West Ham United with another 3-2 victory at home to
Colchester United before the run ended with a 0-3 defeat at Blackpool.
No solace for
Newcastle U21s 0 Sheffield United U21s 1
Newcastle's U21s lost their latest PL Cup game at Whitley Park on
Monday evening and are still looking for their first point in the
competition, having been defeated in all of their first four games.
The visitors had the ball in the back of the net in the sixth minute
when Louie Marsh side footed home a right wing cross but was denied
by an offside flag.
But the Blades did take the lead in the 37th minute when a loose
ball broke to Leo Gaxha and he lashed it beyond Jude Smith.
The home side's best effort in the first period was a tame Amadou
Diallo free-kick midway through the half that was parried by the
'keeper and Isaac Westendorf fired the rebound into the side
Seven minutes after the break Josh Scott had a long range effort
And in the second minute of added time a home corner was met by a
thunderous Charlie Wiggett header that the 'keeper saved one-handed
and then blocked the rebound to secure the victory for his side.
Team: Smith, Barclay, Hackett, Carlyon, Wiggett, Brookwell,
Scott, J.Miley (Ndiweni 75), Westendorf (Munoz 65), Huntley, Diallo
Subs n/u: M.Thompson, Stewart.
SUFC: Hiddlestone, Sachdev, Buyabu, Potter, Barratt, Gomis,
Hampson, Staniland, Gaxha, Marsh, Smith (T.Williams 65).

An update from NUFC historian
WHO’S WHO UPDATE
Since the club’s 400-page Ultimate Who’s Who was published back in
2014, I have continued a never-ending task to record player facts
and delve into the past for more and more information.
Published this month is the first Who’s Who Supplement which
includes new and updated data on the ‘Men Who Made United’ since
formation as Stanley FC in 1881 to the close-season of 2014.
It is intended to provide supporters periodical updates of both the
Ultimate Record and Ultimate Who’s Who since the original
publications. The same format is used in this update as the core
Who’s Who. A second supplement is planned to include all United’s
‘New Arrivals’ since 2014.
Material available for research has increased year on year. Access
to the British Newspaper Archive (BNA) has given a huge source of
information from thousands of newspaper titles around the country,
all to view on-line.
This wasn’t available back in 2014 and the result is an enormous
bank of contemporary reports noting United’s footballers; simply a
treasure-trove which has added detail of players’ careers as well as
their lives once retired.
The 88-page book is an essential add-on to those enthusiasts who
have the original volume which includes biographies of all players,
managers, coaches & support staff as well as directors.
Priced at £12 and published by Novo Publishing, the book is
available at The Back Page and orders via the nufc.com website will
commence in December.
PS: for those asking about the 2021/22 season update PDF to the
Ultimate Record, this will be included in the forthcoming supplement
(no firm publication date is available).
Before that though, the usual free PDF copy will be emailed out to
previous subscribers in early December.

On This Day in History |
6th December |
Born Or Died:
1915 Benny Craig born, Leadgate, Durham. (1938-50)
As a player and coach, Benny served
United for over 40 years after arriving in a £4,000
move from Huddersfield Town.
Finding employment as a brickworker, he'd moved to the
Terriers on amateur forms in 1934 - also having trials
at both Arsenal and the mackems.
Debuting in a 0-3 loss at Blackburn Rovers in November
1938, the full back played in the abortive 1939/40
season before league football was suspended and then
joined the Royal Artillery - seeing service in Europe
and winning the Military Medal for his part in the
Returning to the club after WW2, Craig was part of the
side who clinched promotion to Division One in 1948
and played on in the top flight until the 1949/50
Benny then became assistant trainer and also worked
with the club's younger players - coaching the side
who captured the FA Youth Cup in 1962 and helping to
develop players such as Bob Moncur and David Craig.
His death was recorded in January 1982.
1951 David Mills born, Whitby.
(1982 & 1983-84)
Another player who served the Magpies
in both onfield and off-field roles, Mills hit the
headlines in 1979 when he became the first £500K
footballer - the record transfer fee seeing him leave
Boro for West Brom.
His career stalled at the Hawthorns however and a loan
move brought him to SJP for the second half of the
Despite impressing, no transfer deal was concluded and
Mills ended up swapping the Baggies for Sheffield
He was to get his transfer to Tyneside though in 1983,
when a part-exchange deal with Imre Varadi was
And his contribution to our promotion campaign is
often overlooked, with vital strikes against Fulham
and Swansea, plus a goal on the day that a top-flight
return was confirmed, with a 2-2 draw at Huddersfield.
Departing from Newcastle, Mills returned to
Middlesbrough and also appeared for both Darlington
and Whitby Town.
However, the events of January 1988 proved to be
life-changing for him, as he survived a fatal car
crash in the Tyne Tunnel but had to undergo extensive
After working in the local sports media, Mills
returned to SJP as a scout in 1995 and served seven
managers in over a decade.
He was then recruited by Boro in a
similar role in 2008, before joining Hull City.
1956 Peter Kelly born, East
Kilbride, Scotland. (1973-81)
Right back who came through the junior
ranks at SJP and seemed destined for great things,
debuting against Chester City in a home League Cup tie
in December 1974.
However, Kelly's time on Tyneside was blighted by a
cruciate injury sustained in a game at Luton Town in
That injury ultimately forced him out of professional
football, although he did continue to play for
Peter also ran a newsagents in West
Denton for a time, along with fellow former Magpie and
Tynesiders team mate, Terry Hibbitt.
1967 Ian Bogie born, Walker. (1986-89)
Initially billed as the next 'Gazza',
midfielder Bogie came to United's attention playing
for Wallsend Boys Club and showed promise in our 1985
FA Youth Cup winning side.
However, his career at United was curtailed by manager
Jim Smith in the 1988/89 season, Bogie joining Preston
North End in order to secure regular first team
football - United taking Gary Brazil in exchange.
Later moves took him to Millwall, Leyton Orient, Port
Vale and Kidderminster Harriers, before a back injury
forced him to quit.
Bogie then finished his playing career at Bedlington
Terriers before managing Walker Central and coaching
at Tyne Met College.
Moving on to become assistant boss at Gateshead in
2006, he took charge of the Tynesiders a year later.
Under Ian's guidance, the Tynesiders gained successive
promotions from the Northern Premier League and
Conference North to the National Conference.
After three and a half seasons at the International
Stadium, poor results led to Bogie's dismissal in
December 2012 - returning to management at Conference
rivals Stockport County the following March.
Failing to avoid relegation, he resigned in August
2013 after a poor start to the following season.
Bogie later coached youngsters at Newcastle United's
1970 Death of Ted Robledo,
52, in mysterious circumstances while serving on an
oil tanker in the Persian Gulf. (1949-53)
1998 Cedwyn Scott born,
November 2020 saw Newcastle grant a trial to Hebburn Town's
prolific striker after he'd found the net 21 times in just 14 games for the
Northern League side.
Scott was with Huddersfield Town’s academy before playing senior football in
Scotland with Dundee, Berwick Rangers and Forfar Athletic.
Darlington offered Cedwyn a trial in the summer 2019, after which he
moved to Dunston UTS before joining Hebburn in early 2020.
Spending four weeks training with United's U23 squad, he made two
appearances in Premier League 2 and also appeared against former club
Huddersfield but didn't get on the scoresheet in any of them.
Newcastle declined to offer him a contract and Scott went back to Hebburn
before agreeing a short-term deal at Carlisle United.
Failing to find the net in seven League Two outings (all from the bench),
Cedwyn left Brunton Park in May 2021 and signed for Gateshead.
After finding the net 22 times for the Tynesiders, Cedwyn signed for Notts
County in June 2022.
1902 Nottingham Forest
P14, 13pts, 13th/18
To complete a
forgettable day for the hosts at Gallowgate, Dick Roberts
had a penalty saved by Forest 'keeper Harry Linacre in the
closing minutes of the game.
1913 Middlesbrough (a)
P15, 13pts, 15th/20
United's five game unbeaten run at Ayresome Park
came to a juddering halt, as they failed to recover from
conceding a penalty with the last kick of the opening
Sheffield United (a)
P18, 22pts, 3rd/22
Newcastle extended their winless run to four games on
a Bramall Lane pitch that was described by the "Star
Green 'Un" scribe as "very treacherous, with
"pools of water dotted all over."
Forward Andy Smailes made his debut for the Magpies and
had a great chance to mark the game with a goal, only to
miss his kick entirely. Tom Hall followed in though and
hit his first club goal since 1915.
1924 Tottenham Hotspur
P19, 20pts, 7th/22
Visiting goalkeeper Fred Hinton was praised for
restricting the hosts to just a single goal.
His side also rode their luck en route to a fortunate
point; Neil Harris and Billy Cowan contriving to collide
with each other when Hinton was beaten and his goal was
1930 Manchester City
P18, 13pts, 18th/22
Newcastle's Roddie MacKenzie was sent off in the 75th
minute at Maine Road for a bad foul on Citizens goalscorer
1941 Middlesbrough (a)
Stubbins 5, Short, Woollett
Tottenham Hotspur (h) 1-0 (1-0)
P20, 27pts, 2nd/22
Newcastle's victory was made even more impressive by
the fact that Doug Graham was unable to return for the
