Chemnitzer vs Newcastle United match highlights

Posted on July 14th, 2012 | 6 Comments |

Highlights of the first of Newcastle United’s first pre season friendly games, this one against German third string side Chemnitzer, at their place, Der Stadion an der Gellertstraße, Chemnitz.

A mostly second string Magpies eleven (with a few big names coming on before the end) succumbed to a solitary goal from Chemnitzer’s Anton Fink in the tenth minute. Sammy Ameobi thought he had levelled later in the game but he was judged to be offside.

New kids on the block, Romain Amalfitano and Gael Bigirimana both took part, with Amalfitano starting and Bigirimana coming on as a sub for for Mehdi Abeid in the 70th minute. The highly talented Haris Vuckic also managed to play 70 minutes of the game without breaking something!


Chemnitzer: Pentke; Stenzel, Wilke, Wachsmuth, Birk; Pfeffer, Kegel, Strasser, Landeka; Forster, Fink.

Newcastle United: Elliot (G), Tavernier (Simpson, 70), Williamson, Perch, R.Taylor (Santon, 70), Obertan (Gutierrez, 77), Abeid (Bigirimana, 70), Gosling, Amalfitano, Vuckic (Shola Ameobi, 70), Sammy Ameobi (Ba, 77).

    “Lets not be to upset about the result lads.”

    As “Toonie” wrote above, Man City lost 1-0 as well to a Saudi Arabian team. That’s pre season friendlies for you.
