NEWCASTLE United's U18s produced a sparkling display to end their FA Premier Academy League home season with a win over Leeds United.
Ryan McGorrigan scored twice after Sammy Ameobi and Brad Inman had scored in the first half.
An impressive United could have scored more in a one-sided second half, though home goalkeeper Ben Robinson had to save a late penalty.
Stunning goals were a feature of the game, with the lively Ameobi hitting a superb 19-yard curler into the top corner. Leeds replied with a beauty, James Booker’s 22-yard volley.
Within a minute the Magpies were back in front when Inman played a one-two with Ameobi inside the box to find the bottom corner with a scuffed shot.
Inman found Aaron Spear in the box and his low cross was turned in by McGorrigan early in the second half.
Inman’s through-ball was then lashed home from 18 yards by McGorrigan.
