Newcastle Women break attendance record on first St James' Park outing


Newcastle Women attracted a club record 22,134 fans as they beat Alnwick Town Ladies 4-0 in a fourth-tier game on their first outing at St James' Park.

Attendance for Sunday's FA Women's National League Division One North fixture smashed the previous club record for a women's game, when 2,754 fans attended their 1-0 defeat by Ipswich Town in the FA Cup in January

Newcastle part-owner Amanda Staveley was in attendance to show her support for the women's team, who narrowly missed out on promotion despite losing just two games in the season.

They have one game left to play, but finish the season second behind Liverpool Feds

Katie Barker opened the scoring in the 33rd minute, while Brooke Cochrane added the second from the penalty spot moments later.
