Newcastle U18 stun Man Utd in 5-goal thriller

Newcastle United have beaten Manchester United U18s today.

United's five-match winning streak in the Academy League ended on Saturday afternoon with a dramatic 3-2 away defeat on Tyneside.

James Huntley's 89th-minute winner for Newcastle rendered the Reds' fightback fruitless.

Josh Scott's first-half opener for the Magpies and Kyle Crossley's effort just after the hour mark had given the Reds a two-goal deficit to overcome.

Zidane Iqbal came off the bench to pull one back in the 75th minute and Dillon Hoogewerf headed home Charlie McNeill's cross at the far post six minutes later.
