Cup of joy


Charlton Athletic U18s  2  Newcastle U18s  3


Newcastle's U18 side beat Charlton Athletic 3-2 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 Round.

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 (4-1).

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.
 

U21s:
No solace for
second string


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 netting.

Seven minutes after the break Josh Scott had a long range effort turned over.

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 (Crossley 65).
Subs n/u: M.Thompson, Stewart.

Booked: Carlyon.

SUFC: Hiddlestone, Sachdev, Buyabu, Potter, Barratt, Gomis, Hampson, Staniland, Gaxha, Marsh, Smith (T.Williams 65).
Subs n/u: L.Williams, Hampshaw, Pitan.

Booked: Sachdev, Smith.

Crowd: 99.

Thanks again to GW.

Sheffield United won their home game against the Magpies 2-1 last week.

travel misery


Update:

The latest train strike dates now include December 26th, affecting our trip to Leicester City.

Earlier rom the BBC:

"Rail passengers face further disruption after the RMT union announced more strike dates.

The strikes will be held across four 48-hour periods on 13-14 and 16-17 December and 3-4 and 6-7 January."


That will affect fans travelling to Arsenal v Newcastle on January 3rd and also United’s FA Cup Third Round tie the following weekend against Sheffield Wednesday.

Friendly:
Al-Hilal (a)

Eddie Howe’s squad are undergoing what has been termed as a “mini pre-season” in the Saudi Arabian city of Riyadh, consisting of a training camp and a friendly match against Saudi Professional League side Al-Hilal on Thursday.

This will be United’s second kickabout in Saudi Arabia this year, following a 2-1 victory over Al-Ittihad in Jeddah back in January.

Following the Al Hilal game, the Magpies return to the UK where a home friendly against Spaniards Rayo Vallecano has been arranged for Saturday December 17th.

There are reports that Newcastle will also play a behind closed doors training match against Football League opposition - presumably between the Al-Hilal and Vallecano games - but that remains unconfirmed.



The venue has been confirmed as the 22,000 seat Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium.

Tickets are priced at 25 Saudi Riyals (£5.40) and upwards and available from the home club here.

Team: tbc.

The Newcastle party flew out on Sunday.

Nick Pope, Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar and Bruno Guimaraes are all unavailable due to international duty. Dan Burn wasn’t on the club flight but is travelling separately to Riyadh.

It’s anticipated that Alexander Isak, Karl Darlow, Paul Dummett and Matt Ritchie will feature as they return following injury.

Emil Krafth is with the squad but it's unclear what stage of his recovery he's at. Loris Karius is present.

The Newcastle party also includes five members of the club’s U21 squad; namely Lewis Miley, Alex Murphy, Dylan Stephenson, Jay Turner-Cooke and Joe White.

AH: The hosts had no less 12 representatives in the Saudi Arabia squad who exited from the World Cup at the group stage.

Premier League:
Palace (a)
rail disruption


Notwithstanding the ongoing threat of industrial action, anyone planning their rail journey to the Crystal Palace away game next month from the region faces further disruption.

That’s due to planned engineering work between Newcastle and York that will close the East Coast Mainline entirely on Saturday 21st January and Sunday 22nd January.

As a result, all LNER Kings Cross services will start and terminate at York, with a reduced connecting rail service to and from Newcastle via Hartlepool and a rail replacement bus service calling at Darlington, Durham and Newcastle.

NB: Grand Central trains between sunderland and Kings Cross will still operate that weekend, but Lumo services won’t run south of Newcastle.

PS: the same full line closure and arrangements also apply during the previous weekend, disrupting fans travelling to our home game versus Fulham on Sunday January 15th.

FA Cup:
Sheff Wed KO 6pm

Newcastle's trip to Hillsborough for the FA Cup Third Round tie against Sheffield Wednesday has been selected for live TV transmission by BBC1 and iPlayer and will kick-off at 6pm on Saturday 7th January.

A reminder that this date is one of those selected for strike action by rail union RMT.

PL:
Arsenal (a) now 7.45pm

January's Premier League visit to the Emirates Stadium has had its kick-off moved forward 15 minutes from 8pm to 7.45pm at the behest of Sky Sports.

The fixture takes place on Tuesday January 3rd and travel plans have already been disrupted by rail strike action due to take place that day.

FA Cup:
It's... Sheff Wed (a)

The FA Cup 3rd Round draw took place on Monday evening at Anfield and Newcastle were drawn away at League One Sheffield Wednesday.

The tie has been selected for live TV transmission by BBC and will kick-off at 6pm on Saturday 7th January.

Our last cup meeting with the Owls was their 1-0 League Cup success on Tyneside in September 2015.

The last of six FA Cup clashes was a 2-1 home win for United in 1981 when Chris Waddle starred for the Magpies.

And, of course, our last FA Cup game at Hillsborough ended in Semi-final success way back in March 1974 when Supermac scored twice against Burnley.

Wednesday have got to this stage of the competition courtesy of home wins over Morecambe (2-0) and Mansfield Town (2-1) in Rounds One and Two.

An update from NUFC historian Paul Joannou:

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. 

2022/23:
Home friendly:
seats on sale


In addition to the match scheduled to take place during Newcastle's visit to Saudi Arabia in December, a home friendly has now also been confirmed.

La Liga side Rayo Vallecano will visit SJP for a 12.30pm kick-off on Saturday December 17th.

Tickets are now on public sale, priced at £20 adults and £10 concessions.

Ahead of that, United
will stage a training camp between December 4th to 10th, facing Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal in Riyadh on the 8th (a game now listed with a kick-off of 7pm local time).

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 Anzio landings.

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 season.

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 1980/81 season.

Despite impressing, no transfer deal was concluded and Mills ended up swapping the Baggies for Sheffield Wednesday. 

He was to get his transfer to Tyneside though in 1983, when a part-exchange deal with Imre Varadi was concluded.

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 facial surgery.  

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 December 1978. 

That injury ultimately forced him out of professional football, although he did continue to play for Gateshead.

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 Academy.

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, Hexham. (2020)

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.

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.

The Pirates marked the end of their centenary year with a kickabout at Eastville - Newcastle agreeing to participate as part of the deal that took goalkeeper Martin Thomas to Tyneside the previous summer.

Their generosity came at some cost however, losing full back John Ryan to injury after barely two minutes.

Paul Goddard netted the first goal of his spell at United with a fine strike in front of a large travelling support gathered on the Holmesdale Terrace at Selhurst Park. 

Midfielder Tony Nesbit came off the bench for a first team debut, one of only three senior appearances he made for United.

Newcastle started well but couldn't force the ball past the imposing figure of David Seaman in the Gunners goal.

However, after Ian Wright ended his long goal famine (revealing a T-shirt with the words "At Last" on it), United became disheartened.

With Alan Shearer still missing and Tino Asprilla barely contributing, the striking burden fell on veteran John Barnes and youngster Jon Dahl Tomasson - with neither impressing home fans.

An entertaining afternoon at the Riverside saw Newcastle deservedly preserve their unbeaten record against the smoggies in the Premiership.

Paul Gascoigne set up Boro's opener (before being pursued across the pitch by a pair of scantily-clad lassies dressed as Santa) before Laurent Charvet's powerfully-struck volley.

Gazza always had his 
knockers at the Riverside...

With Shay Given injured, Steve Harper made the most of his start with a fine display, but unluckily conceded a second goal when Colin Cooper's effort deflected off Aaron Hughes.

Nicos Dabizas levelled within two minutes of arriving from the subs bench, heading in a cross from Charvet.

For the fourth season in a row, Michael Owen was missing from the Liverpool side - an attendance record he'd maintain in later years, when on our payroll.... 

The atmosphere wasn't helped by a Saturday lunchtime kick-off for TV , and when Jonathan Woodgate and Titus Bramble emulated Laurel and Hardy to give Danny Murphy a free shot at Shay Given, things looked bleak.

However, a second revival gained some reward when Chris Kirkland made contact with Laurent Robert in the area; Alan Shearer slamming home the resultant penalty.

Seemingly set for a second victory in as many seasons over the Reds, United couldn't press home their advantage: Liverpool twice clearing off their goal line form and Shola Ameobi guilty of two late misses.

Christmas came early for Glenn Roeder when midfielder Emre hit a stunning late winner to grab three priceless points in a topsy-turvy encounter.

Antoine Sibierski had headed United in front, but a brace from James Harper gave The Royals an interval advantage.

Obafemi Martins then went down in the area under challenge from Ibrahima Sonko and Rob Styles awarded a slightly soft spot kick.

After prolonged negotiations with the allotted penalty taker Nobby Solano, Martins stepped up to beat Marcus Hahnemann for his first league goal on home soil.

Reading's Harper then lost possession on the halfway line to Emre, who advanced on goal and with defenders back-pedalling, drove home a fine swerving effort
to win it.

In a season of self-inflected wounds and misadventures, this game saw United at their profligate worst. 

Future Potter Michael Owen netted twice as Joe Kinnear's side tied the visitors in knots with fluent attacking moves and the three points seemed to be in the bag by half time.

Danny Guthrie remained in the dressing room with a hip problem however and with no midfielders on the bench, United altered their formation and sat on their lead.

City eventually accepted the invitation to have a go at us and after a route one goal, went in search of an equaliser.

Their chance appeared to have gone when former Magpie defender Abdoulaye Faye missed a good chance in the last minute.

However, he made no mistake from close range when another chance presented itself, with JFK sent to the stands for protesting about the free-kick which led to Faye's goal.

2010 Chris Hughton followed Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer out of the door as another manager departed from the Mike Ashley-led Magpies.

Despite gaining promotion and some notable victories following our return, two points from five games persuaded Ashley and Del Boy to hit the eject button.

Already through to the knockout stages, United's final Europa League group game ended in a deserved defeat, as the hosts topped Group D.

A measure of Alan Pardew's disinterest in the tie was his decision to recall Nile Ranger, while both Mehdi Abeid and James Tavenier also started.

And had it not been for some outstanding saves from Rob Elliot, the punishment could have been more severe. Future Magpie Henri Saivet featured for Bordeaux.

Substitute Papiss Cisse claimed another memorable brace against the Blues; Jose Mourinho's men losing their unbeaten record for the season and leaving SJP empty-handed for the third time in a row.

But there were 15 minutes of absolute torture for United to endure as Steven Taylor was sent off, Didier Drogba scored and a ludicrous six and a half minutes of added time was eventually seen out before Alan Pardew marked his fourth anniversary as Newcastle manager in style. 

And the incredible result was achieved with third choice goalkeeper, Jak Alnwick, replacing the injured Rob Elliot at the break and the young stopper played his part in a magnificent second half display on his senior debut.

Gini Wijnaldum inspired an unlikely but welcome win to relieve the pressure on boss Steve McClaren before the Sky cameras.

Like the previous two, our third league win of the season was on live TV and this was the least expected following our 1-5 loss at Crystal Palace and Liverpool's 6-1 midweek win.

A much-improved display saw United out-fight and out-play the Reds, who returned to SJP the following summer to sign our second scorer - as predicted in our match report!
