Newcastle U21s Drawn into Checkatrade Trophy

Unfortunately no Tyne-Wear derby, yet.

Newcastle U21s were drawn into Group G in the 2018-19 Checkatrade Trophy. The Toon will be traveling to Doncaster Rovers, Grimsby Town and Notts County to make up group G.

The Checkatrade Trophy is a tournament composed of League One and League Two sides with sixteen U21 sides from the Premier League and Championship.

Last season, was Newcastle’s 1st season participating in the tournament. They were able to beat Crewe Alexandra, but lost to Port Vale and Oldham Athletic.

Each team plays each other once and all of Newcastle’s matches will be away.
