It was a forgettable first two matches for the U18 squad after losing their first two by a combined 9-0. However, a League win over the mackems would change those fortunes.
The first half was not a good one by either side as Newcastle had zero shots on goal. There was not a lot of pressure for the mackems either.
10 minutes after HT, it was Deese Kasinga on the left side and crossed a ball in the box to Kain Reed to make it 1-0 for the Toon, and that was all that was needed.
The mackems pushed for the final 20 minuted but werent able to equalize.
TEAM: Otto Huuhtanen, Ryan Barrett, Lucas Gamblin (Tai Ebanks 75’), George Rounsfell, Jude Swales, Oisin McEntee, Joseph Asose - Trailist, Jack Young, Thomas Cole, Kain Reed, Deese Kasinga (Josh Scott 75’)
