I know it's a bit late!---but here's 'The Geordie Times' match report from Corby last Saturday!

Match report and pix sent by 'Alex of St George'

"Despite ower half an hours gap from the first game this one somehow kicked off 8 minutes late?---eatin' into my time to get the 3 miles back to the station to catch the train!

Newcastle U21s continued their impressive start to the season with skilful control and accurate passing giving them the upperhand throughout the opening period.

A number of NUFC chances went begging before Corby had the first corner of the game in the 37th minute. The low delivery went right across the 6 yard box with one Corby player missing it completely and centre back Bradlee Gascoinge heading against the post when it was easier to score!

2 minutes later Luke Charman put Newcastle ahead with a smart turn and shot into the bottom corner of the net after good work from the impressive Yasin El-Mhanni.

NUFC made no changes at half time but Corby brought on Sergio Carallo who apparently is from Real Madrid!

In the 55th minute Certis Good made a timely tackle on the lively Femi Urenuga to prevent him being through on goal.
In the 58th minute Sean Longstaff calmly slotted home after being put through by Jamie Holmes.

A number of further chances from NUFC were saved or missed before Longstaff got his 2nd in the 72nd minute direct from a corner. His apologetic celebrations suggested it wasn't intended!

Kyle Cameron then came on wearing a Phantom of the Opera mask to protect his face!

Further chances were missed but it was a comfortable win against a spirited Corby side!"

Crowd of around 200 included a few Toon fans but most wearing the black and white were supporting the home team!

Some of the 'tonsil ticklin' took place here in the Steel Club in the ground---as well as other locations in LONDON!
