Paul Dummett

Three of Newcastle United's youngsters were on the scoresheet for their respective loan clubs on Saturday.

Bradden Inman, on his Football League debut, netted for Crewe Alexandra in their 3-1 win at Preston. He had made his bow in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in midweek but netted 49 minutes into his first League One appearance, striking home from the edge of the area.

And Paul Dummett scored St. Mirren's equaliser against St. Johnstone on his 15th start for the Buddies. The left-back smashed home from close range in a 1-1 draw in the Scottish Premier League.

However, despite their opponents finishing the game with nine men, St. Mirren could not go on to secure all three points.

While Inman and Dummett were grabbing their first ever senior goals, Marcus Maddison was also on target for Blyth Spartans but it was only a consolation goal in a 5-1 loss at Marine.

Meanwhile, JJ Hooper - who ended his work experience loan spell with Darlington to join Blue Square Bet North team Workington in midweek - made his debut as a 60th minute substitute for the Cumbrian outfit as his new side won 1-0 at Gloucester.

Curtis Good - who was at the centre of controversy during the week when he was named as an ineligible player for Bradford in the FA Cup, which cost the Bantams their place in the competition - was not in the squad as Phil Parkinson's side won 1-0 against Torquay.

Earlier on Saturday, Bradford and Crewe were drawn together in the area semi-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy - a game which could see Good and Inman face each other.
