3,500 fans were at St James’ Park this week to watch Newcastle’s U18s take on Sunderland in the FA Youth Cup, and the match turned out to be one-sided affair for the Tynesiders.
Jonathyn Quinn, Newcastle’s #9, was the hero of the evening for Newcastle as the centre-forward bagged a hat-trick against their bitter Wearside rivals, however the Magpies were on edge until the final moments of the first 45.
A minute before the halftime interval Newcastle took a game-changing lead as Rolando Aarons clipped in a cross from the right which Quinn’s clinically finished.
Quinn doubled his tally at the start of the second half following a clanger from Sunderland keeper, and the young striker rounded off his hat-trick in 73rd minute. Adam Armstrong got Newcastle’s fourth.
