Victory away at Plymouth secures title...

Newcastle United have been crowned champions of the Championship after a 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle.

The Magpies clinched the title after goals from Andy Carroll and Wayne Routledge were enough to earn all three points for Chris Hughton's side.

The North East club have had a tremendous season and have bounced back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Thousands of Geordie fans made the long journey to Plymouth hoping to see their side win the Championship title and they were not disappointed, as they ran onto the pitch to celebrate as the full time whistle sounded.

After a difficult season last time around, the Magpies are back in the Premier League after just one year away and manager, Hughton will now turn his attention to strengthening his squad in the summer.

The result also means Plymouth are relegated and will be playing their football in League One next season.
