Football: Newcastle's cup adventure comes to an end
NEWCASTLE Town junior side's run in the FA Youth Cup has come to an end in the second qualifying round.
Castle had won two matches in the competition to equal a club best, needing two more victories to reach the first-round proper.
But they came unstuck against an impressive Chasetown, losing 4-0 with goals from Jake Turner, Samson Alalade (2) and Connor Leek in front of 110 spectators.
Newcastle's progression had not gone unnoticed, however, with right winger Tom Conlon being signed by Peterborough United and others attracting interest.

Coach Keith Harrison said: "Chasetown are a team of full-time scholars and are a good, organised and fit unit.
"It is disappointing to be out, but it has been a great experience for the lads and we have seen them grow. It is new ground for us and we will only get better."
Chasetown will play Stourbridge in the next round, then face either Dunkirk or Yaxley in the first-round proper late this month.
That is when Port Vale and Crewe Alexandra enter the competition.
Vale have been drawn at home game against Walsall, at Vale Park on Monday, October 29 (7pm) while the Alex take on Carlisle United, also at home (TBA).
Stoke City and other Premier League teams enter in the third round on Saturday, December 15.
