It was just a week ago that Newcastle United managed by Rafa Benitez returned to the English premiership but they added another feat to that achievement at the weekend winning the Skybet EFL Championship in a dramatic fashion.

This was made possible after Aston Villa pulled a last gasp equalizer to deny Brighton and Hove Albion the trophy and with Newcastle already winning Barnsley by 3-0, the trophy was secured at St. James Park.

Ayoze Perez, Chancel Mbemba and Dwight Gayle ensured Newcastle United got all the three points needed and made sure their return to the Premiership was made the more sweeter.

Newcastle ended the 46-game season on 94 points while Brighton finished second on 93 points.

Reading, Sheffield, Wednesday, Huddersfield and Fulham will all go for the playoffs beginning on the 13th to the 17th of May.

Enjoy the party Magpies and welcome to the Premier League once again!
