STOCKSBR’E 1 NEWCASTLE T 0

The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL NORTH & SOUTH - By Ray Tat­ton

STOCKSBRIDGE Park Steels’ per­sis­tence paid off as they beat Newcastle Town.

Town keeper Dave Bar­ton made sev­eral fine saves to keep his side on level terms, and the vis­i­tors’ best chance of the game came 18 min­utes in when Lee Crop­per tried a shot from the half­way line that sailed just wide.

The home team cranked up the pres­sure, with Kyle Blake clear­ing off the line from Nathaniel Crofts.

Their hard work paid off when Stocksbridge fi­nally broke through on 75 min­utes, Joshua Meade fir­ing home from 20 yards.

Newcastle were given a life­line when Brodie Litch­field was sent off for a reck­less chal­lenge, but Steels keeper David Reay de­nied Crop­per.
