Another dent to promotion

FC Amble Juniors U16 1 Newcastle City Juniors U16 2

Pin Point Recruitment U16, Division Two

Having slipped up last week to Prudhoe with a heavy defeat, this was another blow to Amble’s chances of promotion.

Amble started the brightest with Ronan Straughan making a good run down the right wing and putting in a good cross for Callum Fenwick, but the ball got caught just under his feet and he couldn’t get his shot away.

Amble’s first chance of the second half started with James Oliver then Jason Imeson, playing the ball to Josh Briggs who hit a shot on target with the keeper saving.

Two quick, well-taken goals from City in the second half was enough to claim all three points though.

Amble pushed more players forward and it paid dividends after an Ali Batey free-kick to James Oliver, who rose well to head home.

Amble continued to push for another goal, but time ran out with City edging it.
