Newcastle have confirmed that reserve team coach Willie Donachie has resigned from his post at the Club.

The news came out via a club statement after Donachie was involved in an altercation with Remie Streete. The incident came in the dressing room after Newcastle lost yet another Tyne-Wear derby, as Sunderland’s under-21 side won 2-0.

Streete had given away a penalty in the game, which Sunderland converted to take the lead shortly into the second half.

The 19-year-old defender has yet to make his senior debut for Newcastle but has been on the bench once, away at Arsenal in 2012.
