Bolton Wanderers ended their U21 Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win at Newcastle United.

Brandon Miele's opener for the Magpies was cancelled out by Sanmi Odelusi just before the half time whistle, with the striker left with a simple tap in following a cross from Joe McKee.

With both teams battling to take the points, Wanderers hit the decisive strike midway through the second half as Blakeman slotted home from the spot after Odelusi was fouled
.

Despite the win, hosts Newcastle United were crowned champions with Wanderers finishing second with goal difference the only thing separating the sides in the league standings.

Jamie Fullerton’s men can take pride from the result heading back to the North West, with the U21s having won four of their last five league fixtures.
