Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 2 Aston Villa U21s 3

There were five goals in Sunday morning's Barclays Under-21 Premier League clash between Newcastle and Aston Villa, but the visitors shaded it by the odd goal.

Michael Drennan lobbed them ahead before JJ Hooper quickly equalised, only for Graham Burke to give the Villans the lead at half-time from the penalty spot.

Then Samir Carruthers rounded Jak Alnwick to add a third, but Marcus Maddison kept United in the game with a crisp drive. Alas, it wasn't to be for Willie Donachie and Peter Beardsley's side.

Braving the cold at Whitley Park was Ian Horrocks, who brought nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery.
