Thinking of you Lee

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Newcastle's youngsters dedicated their FA Youth Cup third round win over Darlington to team-mate Lee Toland and his late brother Gary.

Last week, Gary tragically died at the age of just 25 and 18-year-old left-back Toland returned to Northern Ireland to be with his family following the sad news.

But before Thursday night's cup tie at the Sports Direct Arena, the squad each wore a t-shirt with the message 'Thinking of you Lee,' as a show of support to the popular defender, who made his Reserve team debut against Ashington in the Northumberland FA Senior Cup at the end of last month.

United ran out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from Remie Streete, Marcus Maddison and Adam Campbell.

And midfielder Dennis Knight spoke for the team when he told "The win was for Lee and Gary.

"Our thoughts go out to him and his family."
