Aston Villa hit young Newcastle United stars for six years at St James Park
Aston Villa were the visitors on Tuesday night, for a closed-door clash at St James Park.
Newcastle United in the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals in a game broadcast live for fans to watch at home.
The victories over Huddersfield, Leeds and Watford brought the young stars of the NUFC to this quarter-final.
Newcastle fans will have struggled to access the live stream before the game is over.
After just 67 seconds, Paul Appiah climbed the highest at the back post to come home to Hayden Lindley’s corner to give Aston Villa the lead.
Brad Young then doubled the lead in the eighth minute and set the pattern for the game, with the young stars of Newcastle United completely dominated by Aston Villa on the night.
Carney Chukwuemeka then added a third in the 28th minute, only for Josh Scott to give Newcastle low hope on the stroke of half-time with a decent left-footed finish in the bottom corner of the edge of the box.
However, Aston Villa simply continued to dominate after the break, with only one case of scoring pain.
Carney Chukwuemeka scored in the 62nd and 64th minutes, two goals that gave him the ball of the game and sent Aston Villa 5-1.
Kahrel Reddin completed the scoring in the 76th minute as Villa revived a 6-1 final scoreline.
Young Newcastle United players are well and truly coming out of the FA Youth Cup, but I hope that kind of game and score is just part of their education as the young NUFC stars are determined to come out in their final league games. to get this one out of their systems. .
