Date set for Under-23s' International Cup derby
Written by Tom Easterby
A date has been set for Newcastle United Under-23s’ Premier League International Cup quarter-final tie with Sunderland.
The young Magpies have been handed a trip to their local rivals – who reached the final last year before losing 5-0 to FC Porto – in the last eight of the competition.
And that Tyne-Wear derby tie will be played on Wednesday, 7th March, with kick-off set for 7pm at the Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground in Hetton-le-Hole.
Ticket details will be confirmed in due course.
