Pic Special: Gateshead 1 Newcastle Res 4
It was a night of firsts as Newcastle took on Gateshead at the International Stadium on Wednesday night, with Curtis Good's first appearance for the club, Romain Amalfitano's first goal and Conor Newton's first goal for nearly two years.
Mehdi Abeid opened the scoring with a scorching shot before Amalfitano ran from his own half to make it two, and although ex-Darlington man Micky Cummins pulled one back before half-time, United came back stronger in the second period.
Newton headed home from Marcus Maddison's corner before Maddison got in on the act with a deft finish.
