Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 4 Crystal Palace U21s 0
Newcastle United under-21s made it nine games undefeated with a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at St. James' Park on Friday night.
Gabriel Obertan scored a hat-trick while Rolando Aarons also scored and a host of Magpies youngsters played at the famous stadium for the first time in their young careers.
It took just three minutes for Obertan to give United the lead and Aarons curled home a glorious second before Obertan added two more in the second half.
Club Photographer Ian Horrocks and Neil Smiley brought nufc.co.uk this exclusive gallery but while Neil may be Smiley and Ian is always a jovial figure, it was Obertan who was the happiest at the final whistle.
