Bernard Can Forget Call Up

... I think he can put that idea on the back burner for a while.

Newcastle Reserves were knocked out of the Northumberland Senior Cup by Whitley Bay and the Frenchman put in a horror 45 minutes that set the non-League side on their way.

The Magpies went down 2-1 at Kingston Park. Phil Bell gave Whitley Bay the lead after Bernard was caught ball watching on the edge of the area, but Lee Clark's lads scored on 75 minutes with a penalty.

Mark Doninger was fouled and new first team star Matty Pattison scored from the spot, but Bell made it 2-1 seconds later.

NEWCASTLE UTD RESERVES: Fraser Forster, Mark Bertram (Mark Doninger 45) Olivier Bernard (Jonny Godsmark 45), Kris Gate, Darren Lough, Rob Cavener, James Troisi, Matty Pattison, Andy Carroll, Kazenga LuaLua, Phil Cave. Subs (not used): Alex Francis, Ryan Donaldson, James Marwood.
