West Bromwich Albion (h) Premier Reserve League
6 mins Sawyers shot 0-1
Speaking to the official website, coach Willie Donachie commented:
"After a slow start we got back
into it, scored a great goal and it was pretty even. In the second half we
started quite well and had a great chance where Jeff (Henderson) could have
made it 2-1 to us.
Albion arrived in decent form and with title aspirations in their own group, going ahead after just six minutes when Romaine Sawyers curled a right footer past Jak Alnwick.
Undaunted though, Newcastle were level just
five minutes later when Marcus Maddison cut in from the right to net with a
25-yarder - his first goal at this level.
Birmingham-born but playing his international football for Saint Kitts and Nevis, Sawyer then completed his treble with two minutes remaining - the 27th goal that we've conceded in the last seven games. Ouch.
