Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 1 Man City U21s 1
Just hours after touching back down on Tyneside after a long flight from Moscow, Alan Pardew and his backroom team were at Whitley Park on Friday to take in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League clash between the Magpies and Manchester City.
Rolando Aarons made his full debut and Steven Logan netted his first second-string goal - and what a goal it was - to put United ahead. However, the visitors scored a late penalty to force a 1-1 draw.
It wasn't just Pardew and his staff who attended, though - Club Photographer Ian Horrocks also shook off his jet lag to bring nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery.
