Newton Aycliffe 2-1 Steels

Stocksbridge Park Steels lost out on a trip to the North East and Newton Aycliffe thanks to a wonder goal.

For the first half, Stocksbridge struggled to get to grips with a Newton Aycliffe side that were much improved from the last time the two sides met in the FA Trophy back in September. They struggled to make things stick up front but Newton Aycliffe were eventually able to do that. Toby Pascoe got down the left and got the space to put in a cross. Liam Jarvie was duly waiting in the middle and managed to get enough contact to take the ball into the back of the net.

In the second half, Stocksbridge were much improved and started creating more chances. Eventually, this paid off. It all started with Jack Watson, who beat three people before having his shot well saved by James Winter. The ball would rebound to Luke Hogg at the edge of the box and he would strike it cleanly into the bottom corner to score his first Steels goal.

Stocksbridge would push up to try and look for a winning goal but while they had some momentum, Newton Aycliffe were able to start turning things back in their favour. Stocksbridge had the luck when chaos in the box resulted in a close range shot being smashed off the post. However, it would turn again as just a minute later, Newton Aycliffe went back on the attack and Liam Adamson would send a crashing shot off the bar and in.

The Steels tried to get an equaliser but in the end, the in-form Newton Aycliffe were able to hold on and Stocksbridge had to return to South Yorkshire without a point.
