VIDEO: How promotion was won at Newcastle – don’t miss!


It was a truly wonderful night as the Irons got heir hands on some silverware at last – courtesy of the under 23s.

In this excellent video watch the young Irons arrive at Newcastle for the game which saw them return to Premier League 1 next season where they will be mixing it with the big boys.

It’s a different kind of video and shows all the key moments from the pre-match dressing room nerves to the key action and the wild celebrations of a team of youngsters who look to have everything before them.

To have achieved it all in one of the hotbeds of the game in this country shows they have the nerve and professionalism to match the great ability we see here.

As academy boss Terry Westley told CandH: “The team has a fabulous spirit – they are  a very talented group and a bunch of lads the fans can really become excited about.”
