Gateshead defeat Newcastle in friendly

Gateshead have defeated Newcastle United 2-0 in a friendly.

The Heed ran out easy winners against Peter Beardsley's Newcastle United reserve side at the International Stadium.

The Tynesiders stormed into a 2-0 lead and could have added to the scoreline as the Magpies disappointed despite having Gael Bigirimana and Shane Ferguson in their side against the Conference outfit.

The friendly was a testimonial for long-serving defender James Curtis, who has been with Gateshead since their UniBond League days.
