Fresh from Saturday's excellent home win over league leaders
Manchester United, Newcastle's youngsters were in action at Hurworth
on Wednesday morning.
Just two of the starting line-up from that 3-2 success kept their
place in Coach
Neil Winskill's side, with first starts at this level for Joel
Green, Liam Chrystal and Nathan Robertson.
That much-changed side were almost immediately handicapped by a
dubious penalty award from referee Martin Conroy - Calum Kavanagh
beating goalkeeper Oliver Marshall with just two minutes played.
The hosts maintained that lead until half time, United's best chance
of an equaliser coming when Josh Harrison was clean through but
couldn't supply a finish.
Boro meanwhile were aggrieved that a solid-looking penalty claim for
a foul on George Gitau was ignored - the referee seemingly trying to
level matters up following his earlier rick.
The Magpies draw level six minutes after the restart when Jamie
Miley got off the mark for the season with a fine 25 yard strike
that flew into the top corner.
However Boro hit back on 66 minutes, retaking the lead through
Pharrell Willis - who deservedly wrapped up the points for the Teessiders
with three minutes left.
Team: Marshall, Stewart, Green,
Robertson (Thomson 46), Brannen (Midgley 67), Nicholson, Chrystal,
Miley (Huntley 58), Harrison, Gilchrist, Crossley.
Subs n/u: Ndiweni, Bessant.
The first meeting of the two sides on Tyneside ended in a 3-4 win
for Boro - Kavanagh (son of former Ireland international Graham)
scoring twice in that game, including a penalty.
Six and out
Well, that didn't take long.....
From the BBC, around 11pm Tuesday:
All six Premier League teams involved in the European Super
League have formally withdrawn from the competition.
Manchester City were the first club to formally pull out after Chelsea
had signalled their intent to do so by preparing documentation to withdraw.
The other four sides - Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and
Tottenham - have all now followed suit.
The 12-team Super League was announced on Sunday to widespread
Manchester City confirmed they have "formally enacted the procedures
to withdraw" from the Super League.
Liverpool said their involvement in the proposed breakaway league "has
Manchester United said they had "listened carefully to the reaction
from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders" in making their
decision to not take part.
Arsenal apologised and said they had "made a mistake", adding they
were withdrawing after listening to their fans and the "wider football
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said the club regretted the "anxiety
and upset" caused by the proposal.
Protests by supporters outside Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night
forced kick-off in the Chelsea versus Brighton PL game to be
Premier League update, Tuesday:
The Premier League, alongside The FA, met with clubs today to
discuss the immediate implications of the Super League proposal.
The 14 clubs at the meeting* unanimously and vigorously rejected the
plans for the competition.
The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it
from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account
under its rules.
The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan
groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best
interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed
competition to cease their involvement immediately.
The Premier League would like to thank fans and all stakeholders for
the support they have shown this week on this significant issue.
The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football
community means to people.
* That figure represents the entire PL including NUFC, minus the "dirty
half dozen" of clubs expressing their intention of joining the Super League.

While a five goal thriller eventually favoured Newcastle at St.James' Park

Emulating the example of the seniors, the young Magpies built up a two goal
lead only to then allow the visitors to draw level - and then summon up a
late winner to stun the current league leaders.
The Magpies enjoyed a 1-0 advantage at the interval thanks to a 37th minute
shot by Josh Scott and Kyle Crossley then lofted his effort over the
goalkeeper to double the lead after 62 minutes.
Constant pressure from the Red Devils saw them gain a foothold when Zidane Iqbal
turned in the box to net with a low shot on 75 minutes. Dillon Hoogewerf then headed
Charlie McNeil's cross past Max Thompson to tie the scores six minutes later.
Newcastle were to have the final word though, Crossley and James Huntley
conbining well for the latter to fire home in the 89th
And while the first team held firm through an additional eight minutes at
SJP, the youngsters saw out six minutes of added time before celebrating a

Current movements of our six loanees:
Kelland Watts (Plymouth Argyle)
The Pilgrims conceded six goals without replay at home to Charlton Athletic
in League One on Tuesday.
It was a night to forget for Kell, who completed the game but picked up
a booking and was credited with an own goal.
Freddie Woodman (Swansea City)
A 0-1 home defeat by QPR in the Championship on Tuesday ended any
realistic hopes Swansea had of overhauling Watford and taking the second
automatic promotion spot after Norwich City.
Freddie played the full game.
Lewis Cass (Hartlepool United)
Weymouth (h) National League, Saturday.
The striker remained on the bench as Almere were beaten 0-3 at Go
Ahead Eagles in the Eerste Divisie on Saturday.
With the Japanese forward still ruled out due to injury, Eibar
shipped five goals without reply at Atletico Madrid on Sunday and
sit bottom of La Liga.
Florian Lejeune (Deportivo Alaves)
What could be a priceless first La Liga win in nine attempts came on
Sunday, with a 1-0 home win over Huesca.
Lejeune was missing due to suspension.
PL crowd return:
no away fans
The Press Association reported on Thursday that all PL clubs would
be permitted to play one home and one away game with crowds present
this season after the government's May 17th go-live date.
In order to achieve that, the penultimate round of fixtures will
move from their weekend slots around May
15th to Tuesday May 18th and Wednesday May 19th.
In Newcastle's case that would see the visit of Sheffield United to
Tyneside played in front of some spectators, along with the
season-closer at Fulham the following Sunday as already scheduled.
The limit of 10,000 fans or 25% of the
capacity if less than 40,000 has again been mentioned, but the Mail
report that previous proposals to allow a limited number of away
fans have been dropped due to COVID-related travel concerns.
Suggestions that vaccination passports / negative COVID tests will
be required as a condition of entry remain unconfirmed.
PS: The PL games that were scheduled for Tuesday May 11th and
Wednesday May 12th are now expected to go ahead on the newly-vacated
weekend of May 15th.
Manchester City's FA Cup Semi-Final defeat on Saturday means that
they'll be heading to SJP on or about May 15th.
As ordinary members of NUST,
we've joined the pledge scheme as outlined further below.
As ever, we don't claim to speak for anyone else, but think it's worthwhile
outlining why we signed up.
We've had some brilliant days watching this club, from Barrack Road to
Barcelona and most points in between. At present though, Burton and Bristol
look back on the itinerary in the short term, with oblivion on the horizon.
To misquote a line from the Likely Lads, the only thing to look forward to
currently is the past. Stay up this season for the chance to go through this
miserable charade once again, or drop down and stay down.
It's been a long time since we held optimism for those in black and white,
but struggling to rekindle any sort of enthusiasm for the club is something
that's becoming dangerously common. Indifference is the greatest threat.
The Athletic ran a "state of the Geordie Nation" piece recently,
which included Biffa's view of NUFC in 2021:
"This is the lowest since we looked into the abyss in 1981. There was
desperation and alienation and the only thing I had then as a 14 year-old
was stuff in books.
"I had no direct experience of this club in any way being successful or
ambitious. It was content to play dreadful football in a half-derelict,
"Forty years later you find yourself with similar feelings of alienation and
desperation. You can only pity 14 year-olds now.
"Obviously the lockdown has amplified things but as an individual I have
never felt less enfranchised, never known such a wilfully constructed gap
between the club and supporters.
The pledge scheme may not succeed - and may only truly become relevant
if NUFC emulate the downfall of the mackems - but the significance of
achieving some sort of fan unity outside the confines of the club cannot be
It's not quite Millwall's "no one likes us we don't care" mindset,
but multitudes are happy to insult our intelligence and abuse our support,
starting with those within the club itself.
There has to be some rallying point, some common ground to be established.
We have never been a militant fanbase, never a crowd of "joiners" - witness
the small number of domestic supporters clubs when compared to our
Nobody, surely can be content with the current reality of following a club
though who barely seek to exist, let alone prosper or excel. If NUFC was a
racehorse, both barrels of the shotgun would be loaded.
Exasperation with the
state of some clubs caused groups of fans to found their own alternative of
the FC United variety, but that chimed with us. Far better to try and change
the current face of thing that brought those fans together initially.
No other business would wilfully watch as customers with decades of service
reach their own tipping point and walk away - yet do nothing except remain
In the absence of ambition or leadership, this is a fan-led attempt to
arrest that decline and ensure that the club exists in a viable form for
future generations to support.
In our eyes, the statement of raising a significant amount is as valuable as
the actual cash - it proves that there's still a pulse round these parts,
despite the perpetual mismanagement that we're subjected to.
Someone at least recognises the plight we're in, shares that
frustration and cares enough to try to do something about it. That's good
enough for us to buy a few less beers every month and set up a direct debit.
It's got to the point where we've got nothing to lose.
PS: Among those pledging their support on opening day was the son of
a sheet metal worker from Gosforth (initials AS), who tweeted: "Well
done. I'm in."
The 1892 Pledge
Thursday saw the
Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) launch what they describe as
"the most ambitious fan-led project in English football history."
SUPPORTERS of Newcastle United are launching a bid to buy part of their
Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) is spearheading the drive to take a
stake in the future of Newcastle United Football Club.
The Trust, which has more than 14,000 members, is asking United supporters
to pledge small amounts of money for a fund that aims to buy part of the
club when it is sold by the current owner, Mike Ashley.
The 1892 Pledge - named after the year Newcastle United was formed - has
been three years in the planning and has already attracted support from the
worlds of football, politics and the media.
Through the 1892 Pledge, NUST aims to build a pot of money that can either
give supporters a small share of the club if it is sold while in the Premier
League or see fans ready to step in to help save the club in the event of
relegation and the financial consequences that could see a change of
Greg Tomlinson, Chair of the Newcastle United Supporters Trust said: “For
decades, fans have been told they are the lifeblood of the club, but when
major decisions are made, they are always left out.
“It is an unfortunate fact that in football, as in life, money talks.
Therefore, we feel that if we as fans really want to be an active part of
conversations that will dictate the future of Newcastle United, we have to
put our money
where our mouth is.
"Raising funds will give us the financial backing
to make our voices properly heard as and when the club is eventually sold.”
Alex Hurst, Trust board member and the driving force behind the 1892 Pledge,
"The 1892 Pledge could mean we, as fans, can invest in our club, that could
be in the form of a percentage stake in NUFC if it is sold whilst in the
Premier League or, if things take a turn for the worse and the club’s
fortunes sink further, we would be there standing ready to provide
investment and potentially be part of a buying consortium.
"Supporters must have a say in what happens to NUFC and we believe this
campaign will give us a real voice in the running of the club - not just now
but for years and decades into the future.”
Fans are being asked to pay in what they can, when they can to fund the 1892
Supporters are encouraged to set up direct debit payments through a
dedicated website -
- which will display the total amount raised by fans on a daily
Alex explained: “It is important to stress we are not asking fans to part
with their life savings or cash in their pension pots - this is not what
Pledge 1892 is about.
“Instead, it’s about making small, regular donations of a few pounds a month
(or more if people can spare it!) which will build up a fund over time.
“It’s also about bringing NUFC supporters together in a common goal, not
just fans in the North East and the UK but all over the world.
“We believe there is nothing that fans of this club can’t achieve when we
are truly united and this is a chance for us to prove it.”
The Trust has appointed four ‘Guardians’ to safeguard the money raised and
ensure it can only be used for one of two purposes.
The first purpose is to buy shares in Newcastle United FC.
The second is that if NUST fails in its attempt
to buy a part of the club when it is sold because they have failed to raise
the funds or a new owner did not want to sell a part of the club to
supporters then all of the money would be donated to charities based in the
North East of England.
The Guardians of the fund are:
Warren Barton, former NUFC and England defender
Ian Mearns, MP for Gateshead
George Caulkin, North East football reporter for The Athletic
Lee Humble, chartered accountant.
Alex Hurst said: “All four of our Guardians are passionate about Newcastle
United and its supporters.
"They believe, as we do, that the future success and viability of the club
depends on the fans - even more so with the financial problems brought about
by the pandemic.
"Before Covid-19 hit, some people were confident that Premier League clubs
could essentially survive on TV money, but that has been blown out of the
water over the past 12 months.
"The financial situation faced by clubs across the league, not just NUFC,
demonstrates just what a vital role fans play.
"We already have power and financial clout. Imagine what we could do with a
proper stake in the club.”
In return for the fans’ financial backing, NUST would like new owners to
allow the Trust to work within the club, either through an executive board
position or another role which can allow the Trust, its members and the
supporters of Newcastle United to influence the club and its future
Alex said: “There is a huge and ever-growing disconnect between the people
who run Newcastle United and the people who support the club.
“This is not just confined to the question of who manages the team - recent
polls in the Chronicle and The Athletic have flagged up the intense
disaffection which fans have with the entire running of the club.
“This situation is unhealthy and unsustainable. We believe the 1892 Pledge
is the first step towards writing a better future for Newcastle United.
“This is an ambitious project designed to begin
the hard work of protecting the club for the next generation of Newcastle
