Academy. Young Magpies prepare for Northumberland Senior Cup final with Blyth Town

13 May 24

Newcastle United Under-21s will be aiming to conclude their 2023/24 campaign with a piece of silverware when facing Blyth Town in the Newcastle Flooring (Northumberland) Senior Cup final on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.30pm BST).

Ben Dawson's side booked their place in the final after a 2-1 win against Ashington in the semi-final stage, following on from impressive victories against Newcastle Blue Star and Bedlington Terriers in previous rounds, and bid to lift the trophy for the first time since 2018.

Newcastle's youngsters have been rewarded with a clash against Blyth Town, who won the Northern League Division title this term after accruing 105 points in the tenth tier of English football, under the lights at St. James' Park.

Harriet Massey was at United's Little Benton Academy to bring this gallery of the young Magpies' preparations for the Northumberland FA's showpiece event.
