Our newly established Academy played their first ever fixture on Sunday 6th June at Newcastle University taking on England Schoolboys.
England Schoolboys, who typically would compete against the likes of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, ran out winners in what was the end of their international campaign.
There were plenty of positves to take away for Paul Stansfield's side, who were playing together for the first time, not least a first ever Academy goal scored by Finn O'Boyle who calmly finished having raced through one-on-one.
Both sides demonstrated high quality in hot conditions as planning now begins for the new season.
Academy Starting XI - Harvey Giles, Ben Tweed, James Birmingham , Mason Wilson, Bobby Attree, Ollie Lamb, Alasder Kerr, Tom Liddle, Finn O'Boyle, Brad Williams, Angelo Piscitelli
