Newcastle United's First Goal

Again not to confuse you, and to satisfy the purists amongst you, there are two possibilities as to who scored United's first goal. One being in the Northern League, the other being in the FA League Division 2.

  1. Harry Reay in the Northern League - December 10, 1892 v Middlesbrough Ironopolis - view match details
  2. Tom Crate in the FA League Division Two - September 2, 1893 v Woolwich Arsenal - view match details

Some more 'First' Goals listed by date order

  • FA Cup - Harry Reay v Middlesbrough on January 21, 1893 - view match details
  • FA League Division 1 - Jock Peddie v Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 03, 1898 - view match details
  • League Cup - Duncan Neale v Colchester on October 10, 1960. United lost 1-4 - view match details
  • Inter Cities Fairs Cup - Jim Scott v Feyenoord on September 11, 1968. United won 4-0 - view match details
  • UEFA Cup - Tommy Craig v Bohemians on September 28, 1977 . This was the Second Leg, the first was a goaless draw - view match details
  • Premiership - Andy Cole v Manchester United on August 21, 1993 - view match details

    It could be argued that United's first Premiership goal was scored by Peter Atherton (Coventry) as he scored an own goal in the match on 18/08/1993 - three days prior to Andy Cole's goal.

  • European Champions League - John Beresford v Croatia Zagreb on August 13, 1997 . United won 2-1 - view match details

    Again, there could be an argument over United's first Champions League goal as the game v Crotia was a qualifier for the group stages. Therefore the first goal would belong to Tino Asprilla v Barcelona on 17/09/1997


Newcastle United's First Hat-Trick

This time their can be no confusion or argument as no United player scored a hat-trick in the Northern League, so the first hat-trick belongs to:

  • Willie Thompson v Woolwich Arsenal on September 30, 1893 in the FA League Division Two - view match details

    Its worth noting that there were two hat-tricks scored in this game, the one by Thompson and the other by Joseph Wallace, making this United's first "double" hat-trick as well.

First Hat-Tricks by Competition...

  • FA Cup - Bill Appleyard v Grimsby on March 07, 1908 - view match details
  • FA League Division 1 - Jock Peddie v Notts County on October 26, 1901 - view match details
  • League Cup - Malcolm MacDonald v Doncaster on October 08, 1973 - view match details
  • Inter Cities Fairs Cup - Bobby Moncur v Újpesti Dózsa in the "Final". This is a bit contentious as the final was a two-legged affair and Moncur scored his three goals over those legs. This is however the only time a United player scored three goals "in one game" in this competition.
  • UEFA Cup - Robert Lee v Royal Antwerp on September 13, 1994 - view match details
  • Premiership - Peter Beardsley v Wimbledon on October 30, 1993 - view match details
  • European Champions League - Tino Asprilla v Barcelona on September 17, 1997 . United won 3-2 - view match details
