Newcastle Thunder’s Academy players will get the on-field Magic Friday action underway when they take on a British Army select side in the first of three games taking place tomorrow evening.

Kicking off at 4 pm, the side sees players drawn from those involved in the club’s player development programmes with five under 19s four under 18s, nine under 17s and one over nineteen.

The players selected represent a total of six community clubs, in the shape of Catterick Crusaders, Cramlington Rockets, Durham Tigers, Gateshead Storm, Jarrow Vikings and Peterlee Pumas.

Following the academy fixture, a Thunder reserve side will take to the field to face the British Army’s first team in a 17:30 kick off, with the side made up entirely of Newcastle Thunder players, with a combination of first team players and under 19 academy members.

16 of the 19 man squad are from the North East while four have been part of Northumbria University’s triumphant BUCS side this season.

Admission to watch both of these games are included in the cost of tickets for the Newcastle Thunder v York City Knights match, with spectators welcome to watch from the East Stand.
