The Throstles down the Magpies
JONATHAN Leko and Rahis Nabi found the net for Albion’s Under-18 side on Saturday morning, as they recorded a 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

Baggies doubled their advantage two minutes before the break when Rahis Nabi sublimely curled the ball into the far corner from 18-yards.
Newcastle pulled one back after the break but Albion held out to claim their first win in four games.
