A thoroughly deserved victory for the home side. Newcastle looked comfortable, moving the ball around with confidence for the first 20 minutes, but a fortunate finish from Straker put City 1-0 up mid-way through the first half. From that moment on the Geordie players heads dropped & City looked the better side. Many players made good impressions tonight, especially trialist 'A' who took his chance with a Tony Currie-style finish (Youth members search YouTube ... it'll be there), curling the ball inside the post from the edge of the box. All in all a good night for City & hopefully the doom merchants on the Press website will change their tune.
In the words of Michael Winner ... CALM DOWN DEAR ... IT'S ONLY PRE-SEASON !!
