Inside Newcastle’s wild dressing room celebrations as Howe takes Toon to Wembley



NEWCASTLE celebrated jubilantly in the dressing room after securing a return to Wembley for the first time since 1999.

Eddie Howe’s men beat Southampton 2-1 at St James’ Park on Tuesday night to clinch a 3-1 aggregate victory in their Carabao Cup semi-final tie.

They will now face Man Utd or Nottingham Forest in the final at Wembley on February 26.

And the scenes in the dressing room after the match were ones of overwhelming joy.

A clip released by Newcastle’s official Twitter account showed local boys Dan Burn and Sean Longstaff heading down the tunnel as they were congratulated by all those around them.


Longstaff received a rapturous reception from the rest of his team-mates following a sublime performance – which was capped by two goals.

The squad and members of the backroom staff then posed for photos as they bounced up and down in celebration.

And another brilliant clip was also shared by Newcastle as fans were given a window into the scenes after full-time.

It came when defender Burn decided to crash Longstaff’s post-match interview with NUFC TV.

The former Brighton man stormed into shot before hilariously announcing: “I’m happy, I’m happy, I’m going to get me suit measured! Come on the lads!”


Newcastle will now look to go one step further and lift their first major trophy since 1955.

Speaking after the game, Howe told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It feels really good tonight.


“I am delighted for everyone connected with the club. It really was a tense night.

“It was a great atmosphere and brilliant environment for the players to play in.”

Newcastle have been a revitalised team since the Saudi takeover and Howe replacing Steve Bruce as manager.

They are fourth in the Premier League table and now in with a serious chance of lifting a trophy.

Next up for the Magpies is a home game against West Ham on Saturday, before they travel to Bournemouth.
