Blyth Rangers Deportivo Under-15s pulled off a great result in the cup in beating Newcastle Pinpoint 4-2.

Both teams tried to keep the ball on the ground and play a passing game to counter the blustery conditions.

Pinpoint took the lead in the 15th minute with a flowing move, but it was short-lived as Shane Clough rammed home a penalty a minute later after Phoenix Telfer was fouled.

Neil Nelson created a chance out of nothing to put Rangers in front just before the half hour mark before Clough scored his second on the stroke of half-time following good work by Jack Bell.

The second half started with Pinpoint pressing from the off, but the Blyth defence stood firm.

Clough notched his third of the game and second hat-trick of the week following a free kick from man of the match Telfer to put Rangers 4-1 up.

Pinpoint reduced the arrears to 4-2 with 15 minutes left but were unable to beat Cockburn again in the Blyth goal.
