Cup of woe for Heed as trophy hopes disappear; YOUTH FOOTBALL.
GATESHEAD Under-18s' FA Youth Cup hopes were dashed after conceding three goals in quick succession against FC United of Manchester, rits RORY MITCHINSON Though they were largely on the back foot, Jon Shaw's side had kept the Reds at bay for the opening 45 minutes at Broadhurst Park.
Forward Jack Ward spurned a string of chances for the hosts, winger William Shawcross also going close to an opener.
However, the pressure finally told on the hour mark, albeit in extraordinary circumstances. There looked little on for Kamahl Fuller as he stood with his back to goal following an FC United freekick.
Yet somehow his audacious backheel nestled into the far corner after zipping through a crowd of bodies.
At the other end, Liam Butler twice went close to a leveller for the Heed but failed to find a way past the hosts' Adib Badri.
Seconds later, the Tynesiders were dealt a hammer blow as Cameron Horner got the better of defender Reece Bilclough before firing beyond goalkeeper Iain MacLeod.
Shawcross then rubbed salt into the visitors' wounds with a rasping strike from 30 yards, making sure of the hosts' passage into the third qalifying round.
Winless so far this season, the young Tynesiders return to National Under-19 Alliance League action against Stockport County a week on Wednesday . GATESHEAD UNDER-18s: MacLeod, Singh, Mitchell, Ford, Bilclough, Bennett, Outterside (Sawyers, 65), Robertson (Ogidan, 46), Kourouma, McDougall, Butler.
|TYNEMET students continue to prove a sporting success as another student lands a prestigious apprenticeship with Newcastle United Foundation.
Codie Nichols, 17 from North Shields has been awarded an apprenticeship with the Foundation after being successful in the Female Mentoring Programme supported by Sport Newcastle. As the Foundation's first female apprentice, Nichols assists the full time community coaches in schools and clubs delivering various programmes and is studying Sports Coaching (Level Two) at TyneMet.
She also visits schools in the region promoting a range of sporting activities.
Nichols said: "I have a huge drive for coaching and having it as an everyday job is fantastic.
"Without TyneMet supplying me with the opportunities, I would not be where I am today.
"I started playing football with the Foundation when I was eight so it is a pleasure to be involved with it now as an adult.
"I get to go into schools to promote sporting activities and healthy lifestyles."
Nchols is one of five students who all studied with TyneMet who are now working for the Foundation - the others are Joe Deverdics, Carl Chater, Andrew Johnston and Lee Fairley.
BEAMISH romped to a 9-3 victory over Hebburn Town Blues.
Hebburn created most of the early chances, only for Beamish to take the lead through Jay Gibson and then double their advantage thanks to a free-kick from Keane Gair.
The South Tynesiders hit back to go 3-2 up through Yuvrat Singh (2) and Dillon Bradford.
That only spurred Beamish into action, however, and they sealed a comfortable win thanks to secondhalf counters from Gibson (3), Lewis Ord (2), Aaron Cranston and Curtis King.
Winners are Beam-ing!
