News of two amendments to Newcastle United's Barclays Under-21 Premier League fixture list, including a change of venue for the visit of Chelsea

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Newcastle's Barclays Under-21 Premier League fixture against Chelsea next month has been switched from Whitley Park to St. James' Park.

The Blues head north for a 1pm kick-off on Monday, 2nd December but the game will now be played at the Magpies' first-team stadium.

It will be the third time this season that United's second-string have played at St. James' Park, with the ground already hosting Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton's under-21 sides.

Meanwhile, the home fixture against Norwich, scheduled for Monday, 16th December, has been moved to Friday, 20th December. Kick-off is 12 noon at Whitley Park.
