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

NEW­CAS­TLE came from be­hind twice to draw with fly­ing Stocksbridge in an en­ter­tain­ing game.

Steels took the lead on four min­utes when Joe Lums­den headed home but were lucky to still have 11 men after keeper David Reay took out Aaron Bott who was go­ing around him.

Aaron Bott equalised after 33 min­utes from 18 yards but Stocksbridge went ahead again when Lums­den re­acted first to fin­ish off a cross.

But Town equalised five min­utes after the break when a deft flick by Bott found Sam Wil­son rac­ing in to chip the keeper.

Brodie Litch­field fired just wide for Steels and Will Bai­ley had an ef­fort held by the keeper, Cas­tle de­fend­ing the bom­bard­ment well.
