Newcastle U23s returned to PL2 action on Monday night when they hosted Nottingham Forest
but their three-game winning run in the league came to an end after
a single-goal defeat at Whitley Park.
Trees too tricky
Newcastle U23s 0 Nottingham Forest U23s 1
Forest took the lead in the 31st minute when Ateef Konate knocked
the ball across the six yard box and Will Swan finished from almost
on the goal line.
The visitors thought they had a second in the 57th minute when Swan
had his attempt on goal blocked by Will Brown and Lewis Salmon's
shot looked to have been taken over the line by Brown but the
referee and linesman were unmoved.
Substitute Rodrigo Vilca hit an effort from distance in the 79th
minute but it cannoned back off the post and that was as close as
United came to equalising.
There was a moment of late controversy when Niall Brookwell was
fouled in the closing seconds of the game - referee Michael Barlow
seemingly hesitating before turning down sizeable penalty appeals.
Team: Brown, Carlyon, Scott (Vilca 71), Young (J.Miley 83), Brookwell, Wiggett,
A.Wilson, Anderson, Ferguson (Westendorf 59), de Bolle, Bondswell.
Subs n/u: R.Thomson, Bessent.

NFFC: Hogarth, Gibson Hammond, Donnelly, Rama, Sanders,
Harbottle (Hanks 68), Hammond, Fewster, Swan, Konate (Barnes 46),
Larsson (Salmon 46).
Subs n/u: Bott, Colling.
Coming off the bench was striker Isaac Westendorf, who scored
twice in three U23 appearances as a trialist earlier in the season.
He's now signed an 18-month contract at United.
The Magpies were looking to complete a win double over Forest
following a 3-1 success on the road in November - the beginning of a
three game winning run in PL2 that had carried them into the play-off
It was the first of two successive home games for Elliott Dickman's
side, with Aston Villa due at Whitley Park for another 7pm start
Monday, January 31st.
Winter weather conditions caused that fixture to be abandoned back
in December, with the visitors 1-0 up.

Fresh from their FA Youth Cup Fourth Round success, Newcastle's
U18 side returned to league action but threw away a two-goal lead
after making the
short trip to wearside on Saturday.
The young Magpies got off to a great start with Ben Parkinson getting a
seventh minute opener and Michael Ndiweni doubling the lead three minutes
But the home side replied after just two minutes through Chris Rigg and Tom
Watson levelled in the 20th minute.
The game appeared to be heading for a draw until the final minute when

Kell played the full game as Wigan beat Gillingham 3-2 at home in League One
on Saturday. The visitors came back from two goals down but the Latics won
it with Will Keane's 77th minute strike.
Lewis Cass (Port Vale)
Lewis was on the bench for the goalless draw at Leyton Orient in League Two
on Saturday but introduced in just the seventh minute.
Oisin McEntee (Morton)
Oisin arrived as a 76th minute substitute in Saturday's Scottish Cup Fourth Round
at Motherwell on Saturday.
That took the tie into

from the spot before winning it in added time.

Update 2: further updates from Spain suggest that Sevilla are
no nearer to agreeing the sale of Diego Carlos and the player's own stance
on leaving is now disputed. He completed all 90 minutes of a 2-2 home draw
Vigo on Saturday night.
Update 1: amid media claims that United had returned with an
improved bid after their previous one was rejected, Wednesday saw Carlos
play the entirety of Sevilla's 1-1 draw at Valencia in La Liga.

On This Day in History |
25th January |
Born Or Died:
1943 Wilson Wood born, Whitburn, Scotland. (1960)
A centre half with Edinburgh Athletic, Wilson was with Shotts
Bon Accord when Newcastle snatched him from under the noses of Rangers in
However things didn't go well for Wood on Tyneside and within a year he was
back in Scotland, agreeing a contract at Ibrox.
Wood won a Scottish League Cup winners medal in 1965 before moving on to Dundee United
two years later and playing more frequently as a midfielder.
He subsequently appeared for both Hearts and Raith Rovers, although there
was some controversy over the latter transfer, with Hamilton Academical also
claiming to have obtained his signature.
Training as a physio, Wood ran a sports injuries clinic in Whitburn following
his playing retirement in 1975. He also played and taught the accordion!
His death was reported during June 2017.
Ginola born, Gassin, France. (1995-97)
winger who played for Toulon, Racing Club Paris and Brest before joining Paris Saint-Germain in 1992.
Brought to Tyneside for £2.5m in the run-up to the 1995/96 season, Ginola
caught the eye in pre-season friendlies along with fellow new faces Les Ferdinand
and Warren Barton.
Debuting in a 3-0 opening day home win over of Coventry City, home fans
were instantly impressed by Ginola's two-footed dribbling and
His first Newcastle goal came in a victory at Sheffield Wednesday as United
instantly hit form, with Ginola finishing on the losing side just twice in his
first 20 appearances.
Things started to unravel slightly in 1996 though, with his dismissal in a
League Cup defeat at Arsenal and a further snub from France with no
international recall - despite their Euro 96 home ground being SJP.
The following season had its moments for Ginola, with stunning strikes at the
Gallowgate End against Manchester United and Ferencvaros in October 1996.
However, those were his final goals for the club and following the departure of
Kevin Keegan, Ginola featured only eleven times under the management of Kenny
Dalglish - his mood hardly helped by a break-in at his house that unsettled his
Moving on to Spurs for £2m in July 1997, he was quickly joined at White Hart
Lane by Ferdinand and the pair appeared in the 1999 League Cup Final
victory over Leicester City.
Later moves took him to Aston Villa and Everton but the magic was gone and
various off-field interests were what kept Ginola in the public eye - a series
of advertising appearances for cars, clothes & shampoo giving way to an
attempt at acting.
2008 then saw Ginola back on Tyneside, to launch his own award-winning wine -
Coste Brulade rosé. Two years later, he then had a short spell as a BBC TV
match pundit and on BT Sport.
2015 saw David launch a bid to challenge Sepp Blatter for the Fifa
presidency. Backed by PaddyPower, the launch of the campaign got off to a slow
start, raising just £5,506 of the £2.3m required....
Collapsing during a kickabout in France in May 2016, he survived after being
shocked with a defibrillator and was airlifted to hospital to successfully
undergo quadruple heart bypass surgery.
He found fame again after featuring on TV show "I'm a Celebrity..." in Wales and was tipped to win it but
eventually came fourth.
Never mind Shearer - for us the defining image of our Premiership pomp remains a sublime
Ginola centre from the left being buried by a Ferdinand header into an opponent's net. Merci
Death of Tim Rogers, 86. (1936-39)
1997 Florent Indalecio born, St. Etienne, France.
One of the
more unlikely signings of the modern era at SJP, this
free agent striker won a nine month deal in October 2020.
Indalecio had first appeared on Tyneside three months
earlier, as an un-named trialist in an U23 friendly
match against Hartlepool United at Little Benton.
Watching him that day was Allan Saint-Maximin, who had
played alongside him for St. Etienne as a youngster before
Florent was released during 2011.
Diagnosed with a cancerous tumour on his
knee, Flo made a failed attempt at a comeback in the USA
during 2016 after playing amateur football in France.
His path to Newcastle took him via Australia, where he had
worked on building sites and turned out for a local side in
Eligible for United's reserve side as an over-age player,
Indalecio's competitive debut came from the bench away at
West Bromwich Albion U23s as news of his contract broke.
Playing nine reserve games (three starts) without coming
near to finding the net, Flo's departure when his deal
June 2021 was no surprise.
Following an unsuccessful trial at Hartlepool United, his
next port of call was Morpeth Town but that proved to be
1998 Dani Koks born, Tilburg, Holland.
Midfielder who joined United on trial in July 2015 following
his release from Ajax and featured for the U18s in a friendly against Corby
Town at Little Benton.
Included on the club's pre-season U21 tour of Holland, Dani netted three times
but was unable to win a deal with the Magpies.
Having moved to Ajax from Willem II in 2012, Koks rejoined his former club in
Tilburg after returning from Tyneside.
By 2019 he was with Belgian minor league side KVV Vosselaar, returning
"home" later that year when signing for Tilburg-based amateurs RKSV Sarto.
1998 Jamal Lewis born, Luton.
Having fielded Paul Dummett, Jetro Willems
and Danny Rose at left back with varying levels of success
and fitness, Newcastle looked to the Championship to fill
that position in September 2020.
A Northern Ireland international, Jamal signed for a
claimed £15m fee from Norwich City, having joined the
Canaries in 2013 after his release by hometown club
Lewis got off to a winning start as Newcastle began their
season with a 2-0 success at West Ham.
However he struggled for form and
made little impression in his first season on
Tyneside - losing his place in the side to converted left
winger Matt Ritchie.
That situation continued into the 2021/22 campaign; a return
to the starting line-up under Eddie Howe quickly halted by
1896 Crewe Alexandra
P20, 22pts, 6th/16
United made what was to be their third and final visit
to the Alexandra Recreation Ground, which was adjacent to
Crewe's present day home at Gresty Road.
Other sources report different scorers of the first two
goals, mentioning Peake, Gillow and Jones, while some
estimates had the crowd at only 1,000.
1902 Woolwich Arsenal
FA Cup 1st Round
After five fruitless visits in Division Two,
United's first Cup meeting with Arsenal ended their winless sequence at the Manor Ground.
1908 Nottingham Forest
P25, 31pts, 2nd/20
"Nothing really exciting - let alone thrilling,
occurred" admitted the scribe from the local
Football News, who devoted part of his report to
complimenting ladies who were attendance,
"particularly so when they don such piquant colours."
1913 Woolwich Arsenal
P26, 26pts, 11th/20
Stewart(16), Higgins(20), Hudspeth(60pen)
This game marked the only appearance of goalkeeper
Jack Alderson, who eventually played for England,

FA Cup 4th Round
17 year-old Jimmy Richardson grabbed a hat trick against the side that he would
sign for some 17 years later.
Richardson was promoted to the side after Andy
Cunningham sustained an eye injury against York City in
the previous round.
1936 Sheffield Wednesday (a)
FA Cup 4th Round
The Hillsborough crowd paid tribute to the
recently-deceased King George V before kick-off, a band
playing "Abide with Me" before a minute's
The second tier Magpies were en route to a
giant-killing, beating the top flight Owls 3-1 in the
replay on Tyneside two days later.
1939 Cardiff City (h)
FA Cup 3rd Round Replay
Following a 0-0 draw at Ninian Park the previous
Saturday, Second Division United avoided a giant-killing
at the hands of their Third Division (South) opponents,
thanks to three late goals as extra-time loomed.
1947 Southampton (h)
FA Cup 4th Round
This all-Division Two tie was notable in that neither side was caught
offside in the entire 90 minutes of play.
By October of the same year, hat trick hero Charlie Wayman
was a Saint, moving to
Hampshire for a club record fee of £10,000.

FA Cup 4th Round
After a snow-clearing effort, the SJP pitch passed an
inspection at 1.45pm.
Supported by 3,000 travelling fans, the visitors had the
ball in the Newcastle net midway through the first half,
but Ron Waldock's effort was ruled out for offside.
Jack Haigh then got on the end of a corner to head past
Ronnie Simpson and give the side from Division Three
(North) the lead, just before the interval.
Bill Paterson then levelled soon after the restart,
although The Iron claimed that their full back Jack
Brownsword had cleared the ball before it crossed the
Eric Davis then put the visitors ahead just five minutes
later with another header before the same player went on
to seal the giant-killing.
Scunthorpe received the Sunday Pictorial Giantkillers
Trophy for their exploits, but lost 0-1 at
home to Liverpool in the next round.

Burton(6), McGarry(28), Thomas(31), Mahon(84)
With a free Saturday caused by FA Cup exits to
Brentford (Boro) and Bedford (United), the two sides met
in this SJP kickabout - the hosts taking to the field in
black and white shirts with broader stripes than
Michael Mahon scored just days after joining United on
amateur forms. The 19 year-old St. Cuthbert's Grammar
Head Boy had been playing schools football and turning
out for North Shields.
Better known as Mick, he went on to make 256 appearances
for Port Vale, York City and Colchester United, scoring
57 goals. He also famously scored the goal for
non-league Wimbledon that knocked top flight Burnley out
of the FA Cup in 1975.
1969 Manchester City
FA Cup 4th Round
A clarty pitch did nothing to help Pop Robson impress
the watching England boss Alf Ramsey, while John Craggs
