Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 2 Norwich U21s 0

England international goalkeeper John Ruddy made his return from injury in front of 122 spectators at Whitley Park on Monday but was beaten by fine goals from Brandon Miele and Michael Richardson.

Willie Donachie and Peter Beardsley's under-21 side made it seven games unbeaten with a 2-0 victory as Ruddy made his first appearance since suffering a torn thigh muscle in November.

John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman were all in the crowd along with the likes of Steve Harper, Gael Bigirimana, Paul Dummett and Adam Campbell.

And bringing nufc.co.uk the best of the action were Julie Harris and Club Photographer Ian Horrocks.
