including Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood. Peter Beardsley was also
spotted among the crowd.
The home side were playing their first home game since winning the FA
Vase against Glossop at Wembley in May and were boosted by a good
turnout of fans, aided by their attempts to boost interest in the
club's fortunes among local residents - by selling season tickets etc.
Fans were also able to stand on improved terracing for the first time,
with a large number of flagstones laid during the close season by
volunteers - a great effort.
For Whitley, Chris Moore and Damon Robson featured against their
former employers, while Lee Kerr had a trial with Newcastle's reserve
side during the Roeder regime.

United's reserve side won the second game of their pre-season programme when
they beat the current FA Vase holders, Whitley Bay, in an entertaining game at
Hillheads on Wednesday evening.
United took the lead after 27 minutes, slightly against the run of play, when
Sammy Ameobi found space down the left and pulled the ball back for
Australian-born Brad Inman to take a touch and shoot past Terry Burke.
The lead was doubled in the second half after a solo run and shot from Wesley
Ngo Baheng. Bay had threatened an equaliser through substitute Paul Chow moments
One-time Magpie trialist Lee Kerr reduced the deficit with a rocket from the
edge of the box in the 74th minute, Krul getting a fist to it but only helping
the ball into the net.
And the win was secured in the final minute when Inman got his second with a
shot that bobbled in front of the 'keeper, maintaining the 100% record of the
new yellow change kit.
