Toon's very own "Kaka" in fine form in United's trip to Whitley Bay
A crowd of over 1,000 fans turned up to take in Newcastle United's second string take on FA Vase winners Whitley Bay tonight and took in an entertaining clash at Hillheads.
And while United may not be in the market these days for global stars, their very own Kaka lookalike helped see off a well organsied Bay unit.
United took the lead on 28 minutes when Samuel Ameobi made a fine run down the left channel and rolled it across to Brad "Kaka" Inman before the Aussie youngster calmly placed it past Terry Burke in the Whitley goal.
There was no more goal action until just before the hour mark when Wesley Ngo Baheng burst through into the Whitley half before picking his spot and making it 2-0.
Former Toon triallist Lee Kerr smashed an ustoppable shot beyond Tim Krul with 17 minutes left.
But Inman had the final say when he banged home the rebound from Wesley Ngo Baheng's powerful shot to complete the win against the Northern League side.
UNITED: Forster (Krul 46), J.Taylor, Lough, Donaldson, Tozer, Morris, Sammy Ameobi, Inman, Zamblera (Leadbitter 82), Danquah (Ferguson 70), Baheng.
Unused subs: Grieve, McDermott.
