Newcastle win!


The hosts wore a blue change strip as part of their support for the Motor Neurone Disease charity MNDA, which allowed Newcastle to don their usual black and white.




Tuesday saw Newcastle U23s advance to the last four of the Northumberland Senior Cup - but only after surviving a late comeback from their Northern League hosts that saw the tie settled by a penalty shootout.

A record crowd of 1,357 at Woodhorn Lane saw United ahead at the break through Jay Turner-Cooke - and when Cameron Ferguson doubled that lead on the hour, the outcome looked a formality.

The Colliers had other ideas however and following a triple substitution, two goals in just five minutes brought them level. With no further scoring and no provision for extra time in this competition, the tie went straight to penalties.

United went first and scored their first four spot kicks, Ashington emulating them until Magpies goalkeeper Will Brown blocked their fourth effort from Danny Anderson.

That gave Nathan Carlyon the opportunity to win it and the 19 year-old defender confidently dispatched his penalty.

Turner-Cooke had given the visitors the lead in the 23rd minute when he was left unmarked in the box and guided the ball home from Matty Bondswell's left wing cross.

On the hour, Rosaire Longelo pulled the ball back from the byline on the right for Cameron Ferguson to execute a neat turn and fire home his first goal at reserve team level.

Ashington responded on 70 minutes when Karl Ross met Max Cowburn's deep cross from the right flank and headed over the stranded Brown from 12 yards.

Five minutes later the scores were level when ex-Magpie Craig Spooner drove home a loose ball from a poor clearance.

Turner-Cooke had a chance to restore United's lead two minutes later but his drive went the wrong side of the post.

The Magpies appeared to have retaken the lead with seven minutes of normal time remaining when Longelo lobbed Karl Dryden and the ball ended up in the net, Turner-Cooke and a defender tussling to get a touch. However an offside flag saw the effort ruled out.

That was to the the end of the scoring, before United completed a full house of penalties to advance in the cup and register their fourth consecutive victory in all competitions.
