BLYTH Spartans Under-16s played their third cup match in four weeks at the weekend, and like the previous two they were pitched against first division opposition.
This time, however, their opponents were league leaders Newcastle City Milan.
Unlike the other cup ties this result was never in doubt, with City Milan proving exactly why they sit at the top of the first division.
In a devastating example of fast flowing, penetrative football, the Newcastle side took charge from the first whistle.
Blyth certainly had there moments, with Alex Youll and James Golding in defence and midfield respectively in particular running their legs off.
Blyth can take enormous heart from a great free kick from Joe Brooks that found the head of Liam Wall for him to score past City Milan defence for the very first time this season.
James Gillie was voted Blyth’s man of the match.
