The Rugby Football League
have confirmed that the next annual Magic Weekend is to be staged at
Liverpool's Anfield home in May 2019.
That ends a four year stay at St. James' Park for the two day showpiece event,
which attracted a combined attendance of almost 266,000.
confirm that they have received permission to their play Premier League home
games at Wembley Stadium for the rest of the season as a contingency - albeit
with a reduced capacity.
This follows an admission that they are still unable to confirm an opening
date for their new stadium - and that an existing arrangement to play at
Wembley until the end of December 2018 won't be sufficient for their needs.
A further progress report has been promised for next month, but Newcastle's PL
away game against Spurs in early February looks increasingly like going ahead
at Wembley for a second successive season.

Ex-Newcastle coach Steve Stone has taken over Burnley's U23 side, over
three years since losing his job following the arrival of Steve McClaren at SJP.
47 year-old Stone had been scouting for the Clarets and is reunited at Turf
Moor with Sean Dyche - the pair having both at Nottingham Forest in 1990 and
shared a flat along with Ian Woan, who is also now on Burnley's coaching
PS: Back in the job market again is Neil McDonald, who had been
second in command to Phil Brown at Swindon Town before the duo were sacked.
Newcastle U18s 0 Chelsea U18s 3
Beaten in their last five
league games, Saturday's U18 Premier League Cup tie sadly failed to provide
United's youngsters with any form of respite as they hosted all-conquering
Chelsea at Little Benton.
Marine NFA Senior Cup and this tie has been confirmed for Tuesday
February 5th 2019.
The current PLC holders, League champions over the last two years and soon to
begin a sixth successive FA Youth Cup title defence, the Blues arrived on
Tyneside seeking their eighth league and cup win in a row.
And sadly that was almost guaranteed within just eight minutes, when a mistimed
clearance in the home area presented the ball to Tino Anjorin who drilled it into
the bottom corner of the goal to open the scoring.
Chelsea's Jon Russell doubled his side's advantage six minutes before the break from the
penalty spot after Oisin McEntee had fouled in the area.
Content to try and keep the score down, Newcastle offered nothing in the way
of a forward threat and managed only a couple of corners that were cleared.
Making five changes to their starting line-up, the visitors dominated without
tormenting Newcastle, either in terms of possession or a cutting edge up
However the gulf in class was there for all to see, the hosts once again
beginning the game without a single substitute on the bench - the named
replacements actually playing for the U16s on an adjacent pitch, before
belatedly making their way to the U18 game.
(Played over 80 minutes, that game saw Chelsea's U16 side complete a 6-0
Team: Huuhtanen, Ebanks, Gamblin, White, Swailes, McEntee, Joyce,
Young, Cole, Reed, Rounsfell.
Subs n/u: Harrison, Marshall, Anderson, Oliver, De Bolle.
Defeated 0-1 at Manchester United in their opening PLC tie, Newcastle will

For anyone planning on going to Chelsea on Saturday January 12th or Spurs
on Saturday February 2nd (but subject to change for TV) by rail, expect
significant East Coast Main Line disruptions those weekends.
Bridge replacement work means that all lines between Peterborough and Hitchin
will be closed. Some direct trains are expected to run from Newcastle to
London Kings Cross via Cambridge, but to a reduced timetable with
significantly extended journey times as a result.
Full closure details are yet to be confirmed (which explains why tickets
aren't yet available to book) and it's anticipated that rail replacement buses
will run between Peterborough and Stevenage.
Aside from the weekends we're at Chelsea and Spurs, the FA Cup Third Round
weekend of January 5th is also similarly affected. We're awaiting confirmation
of any disruption on weekends when we have home games.
PS: Platform lengthening and other associated work at London Kings
Cross later next year will result in further rail disruption, with trains set
to start and terminate at Peterborough on weekends yet to be announced.

1915 Archibald Livingstone
born, Pencaitland, Scotland. (1935-38)
his trade as a slater and playing for junior side
Ormiston Primrose, Archie was spotted and signed up by
Moving from Tannadice to SJP in March 1935, he enjoyed a
scoring debut in a 1-5 loss at Sheffield United in
November of that year but didn't retain his place in the
A more regular starter by the end of the following
season, Livingstone began the 1937/38 campaign in good
form with three goals in the opening weeks.
Again however he lost his place and was allowed to move
on the following summer, Bury paying £500 for his
Wartime football saw Archie guest for various clubs,
including Rochdale, Leeds United, York City, Liverpool,
Wrexham, Middlesbrough, Accrington Stanley, Brentford
Post-war he appeared for Everton and Southport before a
stint as player/coach of Glenavon in Northern Ireland.
Ending his career with Dundee, Archie passed away in
1918 Billy Pears born, Willington, Durham.
Right half signed who joined from Crook Town in
September 1936, graduating from the reserve side in
April 1939 as cover for the injured Jimmy Gordon at half
After appearing in a 1-1 draw at Bury and a 1-2 home
defeat by Swansea Town the following week though, Billy
returned to the Central League side and wasn't called
The outbreak of war truncated his career and he joined
1953 Keith Robson born,
Forward who made his
senior debut at SJP against Chelsea in March 1973, but
who would only appear sporadically in the first team
when deputising for John Tudor or Malcolm
Sold to West Ham United for £60K in September 1974,
Keith appeared in the European Cup Winners Cup Final for
the Hammers two years later (scoring in a 2-4 loss to
Anderlecht) and later spent some time on loan at NASL
side Team Hawaii.
Later spells at both Cardiff City and Norwich City
followed, with Keith losing his Canaries place to future
Magpie Justin Fashanu.
Robson also played
for Leicester City and Carlisle United before a stint in Hong Kong.
He then returned to Norfolk,
playing for Norwich Busmen, Corinthians and Wroxham becoming assistant boss of
Remaining in Norfolk and working at Norwich Airport,
Keith was a
regular matchday host at both Carrow Road and Upton
1961 Neil Simpson born,
international midfielder recalled more for his time at
Aberdeen than a brief stay on Tyneside, where he managed
just four appearances in a year.
Beginning his career with boys club side Middlefield
Wasps in Aberdeen, Simpson moved to Pittodrie in 1978
and in a 12 year Dons career won Scottish League, FA
Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners Cup medals -
playing for a time in the same side as former/future
Magpie Mark McGhee.
Neil enjoyed a certain notoriety in Scottish football
circles following a tackle in 1988 that put Iain
Durrant of Rangers out of the game for three years - although by then
Simpson was suffering with injury himself, a troublesome
ankle restricting his pitch time.
Despite this, Jim Smith persuaded United to fork out
£100K ahead of the 1990/91 season to bring Neil to SJP
and he appeared in pre-season (including the
now-infamous "secret" games in Hungary).
His competitive debut was as a substitute in a 1-0 win
at Port Vale that September and he reprised that role
three days later - playing reasonably well in a 2-2 draw
at Sheffield Wednesday.
After further sub outings at home to West Ham and away
at the smoggies in the League Cup, Simpson's first (and
last) start then came away at Bristol City.
Forced off the field before half time by injury he was
replaced by debutant Lee Clark and would never be seen
again - with questions later asked about the
thoroughness of the medical before the player moved to
Released by United the following summer, he returned to
Scotland with Motherwell and played on until 1993, after which he
turned out for non-league Cove Rangers and was
commercial manager for Elgin City.
After a period working as a football development officer
for the SFA, Simpson returned to Aberdeen and was
involved in coaching youngsters at Pittodrie.
1995 Ryan McKinnon born, Hexham.
Central defender who
made his U18 bow in a 0-4 home loss to Spurs in August
2012 and became a regular starter from that point.
Featuring at reserve team level for the first time in a training ground friendly at York City
during October 2012, Ryan also played in a friendly at
Consett the following May.
A competitive debut for the U21 side came against
Manchester City in February 2014, but after a handful of
further outings, Ryan was released just over a year
Spending time at Barnsley on trial, he then joined
Northern League side Consett.

having the ball in the net at 1-4 only to be ruled offside
- and then quickly scoring his legitimate second of the
Two of Pompey's goals came from former South Shields
player Jackie Smith.
1933 A full
international was staged at St.James' Park, with Wales overcoming
England 2-1 in front of 12,000 spectators to clinch
the Home International Championship.
Tommy Mills of Clapton Orient but the Welsh ahead on 21

Central League action at Gallowgate, beating Blackburn
Donaldson scored twice for the home side, sandwiching
an effort from Wheeler.
1950 A short
journey for Jackie Milburn as he was selected for
England in an international held at Roker Park. Wales were defeated
4-2, with the Newcastle man rounding off the scoring in
the 89th minute.
Future Magpie Ivor Allchurch was in the Welsh line-up for
the game, which was watched by 59,137 spectators.

P13, 13pts, 17th/20
Apparently en route to defeat after yet another goal
from future Magpie Ryan Taylor, a late rally following the dismissal of
Emerson Boyce put Joe Kinnear's side ahead late on.
However, there was still enough time for old boy Titus Bramble to return
to haunt SJP with a late headed equaliser.
Joey Barton was forced off earlier after a tackle by Latics hatchet man Lee Cattermole - the knee injury sustained
sidelining the midfielder for the next two months.
