Newcastle Cruise Through To Next Round

Whilst this scoreline ensured an easy passage for Newcastle to the next round that was not the main talking point on Tyneside, nor was it about Supermac's hat-trick - it was about Frank Clark's goal. His first for Newcastle in almost 12 years at the club. Having never scored for his previous team, Crook, either, you have to go back to his schooldays - when he was a centre-forward - to see his previous goal.

Congratulations to Frank, and the rest of the team of course.
