United’s kids rounded off their season with a 1-1 draw against their Newcastle counterparts at Little Benton, coming from behind to pick up the point which should see them finish third in Academy Group C. The Reds went behind on the hour mark as poor defending from a corner allowed the Barcodes’ Italian youth international striker Fabio Zamblera to give his side the lead, but United deservedly levelled with seven minutes remaining through substitute Cam Stewart, who lashed home a 20-yard screamer into the top corner. The draw was very much a fair result and one that neither side’s coach will be too displeased with.
