Trip to North East in third round of competitionCrewe Alexandra U21's head to Newcastle United tonight in the Third Round of the U21 Barclays Premier League Cup.
The Alex qualified directly to this stage of the competition after winning the U21 Development League 2 last season, beating QPR 1-0 in the Final at Loftus Road.
The match will be played at the Northumberland FA pitches in Whitley this evening with a 7pm kick-off.
