Ameobi hit a hat-trick, and his fellow strike partner a brace, as Newcastle Reserves thrashed Aston Villa second string 5-1 and made it 13 goals in 3 matches for Tommy Craig's side.

The strikers took away the glory from the return of Lee Bowyer, who made a rare appearance for the Stiffs. The ex-Leeds and West Ham midfielder coasted through the game, as you would expect, and simply wanted to get it out of the way rather than return with a bang.

The Reserves are back in action on Thursday in the Northumberland Senior Cup when they play against North Shields AFC at Whitley Park. Before facing the Mackems next Wednesday at Durham City FC’s ground.
