ACTION FROM THE 1st HALF *** PLAYED IN FRONT OF AN
 'ELECTRIC' ATMOSPHERE!
("ER!"---"THE 'ELECTRIC' FLOODLIGHTS THAT IZ!")

On a freeezin' caad neet in Benton the resorves progressed to the next stage on the U21 Premyaa Leegue Cup with a 2-1 win ower 'The Foxes of Leicester' in front of a sparse crowd!

The Toon took the lead in the 39th minute when Bigiramana raced doon the field and blocked an attempted clearance from the visitors keeper and the baall eventually ended up at Adam Armstrong's feet and he sidefooted the baall into the net!

'BLURRED' ACTION FROM THE 2nd HALF!
(A'D HAD A FEW PINTS BY THIS TIME!)
We doubled wor lead with just 12 mins to gan when Tom Heardman ran doon the right and crossed for Armstrong to fire home and claim hiz 'brace'!

Fower 'Basil Brush Brigade' diehards were standin' next to us and one lass kept on whisperin' "Come on guys!" beneath hor breath and it paid off just before the end when they pulled a goal back, when Dawson beat Alnwick in The Toon goal with 3 mins remainin' from a tight angle!

We were absolutleee freeezin' by this time and the last thing we needed waz extra time and penalties az Leicester laid siege to wor goal in the last couple of minutes, but thankfully the ref blew for full time and the 381 Toon fans in the crowd went yem happy az we progressed to the qwaata final stage of the competition!

Attendance: 385 (4 'Basil Brush Brigade-ites')
