AFC Wimbledon Shock Newcastle & Boro Progress In FA Youth Cup

An Alfie Egan double which included a dramatic late winner helped AFC Wimbledon dump Newcastle United out of the FA Youth Cup.

Egan pounced for his second of the night with just two minutes left on the clock to set-up a fifth round tie with either Chelsea or Manchester United as the League Two side triumphed 2-1 last night.

Wimbledon had taken the lead on 32 minutes when Jason Stripp’s exquisite through ball found Egan who calmly beat England youth keeper Paul Woolston.

Woolston was the busier of the two goalkeepers on show however the Magpies restored parity after the interval when Lewis McNall converted Mackenzie Heaney’s pass.

Toon Academy coach Dave Watson conceded in his post-match comments that his team were second best and that he had been “disappointed” by the amount of chances they had created.

And with time running out Neset Bellikli sent over a pinpoint cross that was headed home emphatically by Egan to provide the visitors with a deserved victory.

In the evening’s other clash, Middlesbrough eased past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 at the Lamex Stadium.

Two goals from Mitchell Curry and a strike from Arnel Jakupovic proved decisive despite Marcus Edwards briefly giving the Londoners hope in the 59th minute.
