second string began their public pre-season campaign clad in the new orange
change strip in moist conditions on the banks of the Tweed.
First to show was French youngster Yven Moyo, who rattled the Rangers crossbar
after five minutes with a rising shot from 15 yards.
At the other end meanwhile, Ole Soderberg was forced into an excellent save on
ten minutes to prevent Chris Townsley from netting with a header.
Moyo wasn't to be denied and grabbed his first Magpies goal six minutes before
the interval. Brad Inman latched on to a loose ball in the home area before
laying it off to Moyo and the fit-again midfielder cut inside before
drilling a low right-footed shot beyond the Berwick 'keeper.
United then survived a scare at the other end, as Fraser McLaren struck
Soderberg's crossbar with a long-range effort for the Scottish Third Division
Into the second half and both Inman and Dan Taylor spurned chances to increase
Newcastle's lead, before a second goal arrived on 71 minutes.
A trio of Magpies substitutes played their part in it, when Adam Campbell's shot
earned a United corner that Ben Sayer played short to Brandon Miele. His
low shot wasn't cleanly hit but took a deflection off a defender and beat the
home keeper for what proved to be the winner.
Rangers then reduced the arrears on 75 minutes when Patrick Nzuzi was harshly
deemed to have fouled McLaren - who took the resultant spot kick and sent
Soderberg the wrong way.
United then missed another good chance to score on 89 minutes, when Dan Taylor
centred from the left flank but Billy Ions was unable to keep his close range
A new name at this level was Academy defender Lewis Aird, who appeared as a
second half sub for United.
PS - Berwick wore their new away kit, which is predominantly white with a
black and gold band sash across the chest.
