Newcastle United under-16 Centre of Excellence and Texas Lightning from Dallas produced a superb exhibition of football in torrential rain.
A good crowd turned out at Coach Lane to see one of the top sides from Texas, USA, take on the Magpies as part of their UK tour. The constant downpour failed to dampen the enthusiasm of both sets of players and the spectators who turned out. Both teams where committed to all out attack and some slick passing on the excellent playing surface ensured end to end action with both defences performing well, backed up by some excellent goalkeeping.
Texas Lightning coach and former youth development officer for Newcastle United boys, John Murray, was full of praise for the new FA Centre of Excellence structure in Newcastle. "When I moved off to live in Dallas seven years ago girls football was non existent in the North East," he said. "The facilities and the standard of the Newcastle players are at the highest level. This has been a fantastic experience for my players and one we hope can be repeated in the coming years."
Rob Atkin, Newcastle Centre of Excellence Director, added: "Once again we have witnessed two team playing at a very high tempo in a fantastic spirit, anyone seeing these girls playing for the first time could not fail to be impressed at the standard. Both teams will benefit and learn from these experiences, the fitness of the Dallas players was very impressive as they had already played two fixtures this week."
