Rangers seize notable Toon scalp

Berwick Rangers 2 Newcastle Utd XI 1

On a perfect night for football last Friday, both teams produced end-to-end entertainment in a competitive atmosphere at Shielfield Park.

The Toon’s development squad boasted 16-year-old Alnwick youngster Jonathyn Quinn and emerging starlet Adam Campbell.

United took the lead after 11 minutes when Dan Rickard slotted Campbell through to provide a perfect 11-yard finish. The scores were level after 37 minutes when John Fergusion was fouled and Fraser McLaren hit the net with an emphatic penalty-kick.

The home side scored the winning goal after 75 minutes through sub Lee Currie.
