NORTH Shields Athletic Under-11s beat North Shields Magpies in the Northumberland FA Divisional Cup.

Athletic, pictured wearing their new white and black kit sponsored by Environmental Construction Solutions Ltd, had the better of the chances in a goalless first half.

Moments into the second half the Magpies took the lead with a well taken goal.

This kick started Athletic and they pulled a goal back ten minutes later with a great run and strike from Euan Potts.

Relentless pressure from Athletic had the Magpies defending, however, they were dangerous on the break.

But with only minutes remaining Matty Marshall hit an unstoppable shot from the angle of the box for Athletic to book their place in the next round of the cup.

A great cup tie between two North Shields junior teams.
