Newton Aycliffe U16s Juniors TJFA Division 4 Friendly

Sunday 13th September 2020

U16s continued their fine pre-season form with a 5-0 win at home to Brompton last weekend. In windy conditions the players kept the ball on the ground and played some great football. It could have been double figures but decision making in the final third was the reason for that. Brennan was clinical scoring 4, and Lewis added one to make 5.

That’s 23 goals scored and zero conceded in the last 3 games. Aycliffe have a tough test against Bishop Auckland this weekend, who are two leagues higher, but judging on recent form Aycliffe should give them a good game.

Newton Aycliffe U11s Juniors TJFA White Division Friendly

Sunday 13th September 2020

The Under 11s were at home last weekend, playing Hurworth Albion FC in a friendly. Aycliffe started very well and took the lead with Thomas scoring his fifth goal of the pre-season. Aycliffe scored before half time after an excellent move starting with Jamie, then a clever flick from Callum fell to JJ, who finished it well just before half time.

Aycliffe made changes in the second half with Logan going in goal and Theo at left back due to an injury to Zeke. Aycliffe played some fantastic football and scored again after Callum’s brilliant turn and strike, James and Jamie were solid all morning at the back.

Hurworth got back into the game late on scoring again. An overall entertaining game. MOTM – Jamie

U9s Juniors TJFA White Division Friendly

Sunday 13th September 2020

Newton Aycliffe U9s Juniors played their last friendly of preseason last week, away to Bishop St Mary’s Aces (TJFA Red Division). It was a really competitive game from the start, with opportunities for both sides, but the keepers kept clean sheets for the first 20 minutes.

The second 20 minutes Aycliffe lost their shape and concentration a few times and Bishop capitalised. Some fantastic individual play from Jack saw them pull goals back but Bishop scored another.

The last 20 minutes saw Aycliffe back to their best, passing the ball around, creating lots of opportunities and Jack managed to add to the score sheet again. MOTM went to Sammy for some great tackles and constant battling.
