In front of a remarkable crowd of 11,664 at St James’ Park, Newcastle held Chelsea, who have made the final of the last three FA Youth Cups, to a goalless draw before conceding three goals without reply as they tired in extra-time.

The Magpies were grateful to England youth international Freddie Woodman in the early stages, with the goalkeeper saving Isaiah Brown’s fifth-minute penalty to keep the scoresheet blank.

Chelsea created the better opportunities for the majority of the game, although Newcastle’s Jamie Cobain forced a decent save from Bradley Collins on the hour mark and Adam Armstrong also tested the visitors’ goalkeeper towards the end of normal time.

Chelsea broke the deadlock in the fourth minute of extra-time, with Brown sprinting clear of the Magpies defence before rounding Woodman to slot home.

Dominic Solanke doubled the visitors lead with ten minutes left, and Chelsea booked their semi-final spot when Tammy Abraham tapped home in the final seconds.

NEWCASTLE UNITED: Woodman, Cobain (Holmes 111), Laidler, Drennan (Johnson 99), Newberry, Cameron, Ward (Hunter 58), Williams, Armstrong, Longstaff, Barlaser.
