TICKET prices for under 12s at Oxford United's Emirates FA Cup tie against Newcastle United have been cut to £1.

The Premier League hosts announced the measure, which has been agreed with the U's, as sales for the fourth-round clash passed the 45,000-mark.

That will make it the third-highest crowd for a game involving United outside of fixtures at Wembley.

Under 12s must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone who has already bought a junior ticket for £5 can exchange it in the concourse at St James' Park for a hot dog or vegetarian equivalent.

Away tickets are on sale until 3pm on Friday.
