Pic Special: Newcastle Res v Southampton Res

Despite the presence of Sammy Ameobi making his first appearance since July, Newcastle's under-21 side slipped to their first defeat of the season against Southampton on Friday night.

Ameobi played the full 90 minutes after recovering from a hamstring problem but even he couldn't help the Magpies maintain their winning start to the campaign as Sam McQueen scored the only goal of the game for the Saints.

Nonetheless, the return of Ameobi was good news for United and he features prominently in this exclusive nufc.co.uk gallery from the match, with all photographs taken by Serena Taylor - who also captured a beautiful sunset over Whitley Park.
