Aye, we were unlucky to concede the first two goals after both were deflected. 

It could have been a lot worse than 7-1, but they were a very good side and the sloping pitch didn't help either.





MOTM Carl as voted by Bury team.

Good effort lads, not too worried about the result, but the spreading of the NOFC name across the land with well established teams? Its a great effort. Hope you enjoyed the game today (if you went).

Good game, claiming the goal like. Was going in at the far post, defender deflected it inside the near post. Dubious Goal Panel awarded it to me.

Bury lads were class as well, looked after us all afternoon. Shame about their match though, boring as owt.

Team

GK - Greg

LB - QBG
CB - Hamish

CM - Deano
CM - Stu
CM - Joel

Swapped Carl & Joel at HT, Joel got stood on after 15mins and could barely run - nae subs, so we were half a man down for most of the game.

We needed a Tiote type DCM in there on Saturday.

I think we should have played 4-4-2, similar to what was played at Tranmere - where Rich sat back and Stu was free to venture further afield.

Been wallowing in self pity after Newcastle and the 49ers yesterday, and had a Dissertation meeting today. Will knock one up now.

NOFC still search for first win after valiant effort

Bury Forever B 7-1 NOFC

After encouraging performances against Tranmere and Hurricanes FC, Newcastle-Online travelled to Bury full of confidence but knowing they would face a much more formidable challenge against one of the more established IFA sides.

Their task was made even more difficult by the absence of NOFC regulars Colin, Kev and Disco 'Des' Mark. Botswana defender Hamish Dunlop and Dutch Striker Akbar Naib-Khill replacing Rance and Moore while Carl and Joel filled the void in the midfield.

Following a delay to kick-off due to traffic and poor navigational sense hampering captain Stu's arrival, NOFC made a bright start, competitive in midfield and holding firm at the back the early signs were good for the visitors. However, their hard work was to be quickly undone by not one but two strokes of bad fortune as a pair of long range Bury efforts within a few minutes of each other deflected off an NOFC defender to evade a stricken Greg Tomlinson and nestle in the net.

2-0 quickly became 3-0 as another attempt from outside the area by Bury paid dividends, Tomlinson this time beaten by a well placed effort with the outside of the boot from the Bury attacker.

Down but not disheartened NOFC kept going, and they quickly dragged themselves back into the game. Good work from captain Dow and left back Nicholas McGee won the away side a free kick just outside the box. Dow stepped up to take the free kick and his inch perfect delivery into the box was met by head of a Bury defender and turned into the net, with a touch of good fortune, the black and whites had the goal their hard graft deserved.

In reality it could have been even closer in the first half as NOFC threatened the Bury goal on numerous occasions Dow sending an earlier free kick narrowly over the bar and striker Nick Kane having an effort cleared off the line after expertly rounding the Bury keeper.

If NOFC felt that 3-1 was harsh on them following their first half performance then they were certainly aggrieved at conceding a fourth just before the break, sloppy defending from the visitors allowing a Bury man to find free space in the area and fire in a right footed shot into the top corner from close range.

Still NOFC went into the half time interval fairly happy with their play and they came out for the second half fresh with optimism that they could continue to compete with one of the stronger teams they have faced.

Unfortunately the second period proved to be a disappointing one for NOFC as they were unable to add to their tally of goals and found their defence breached on three more occasions as they continued to be susceptible to the counter attack, away keeper Tomlinson beaten twice when one on one with the striker after good through balls slipped their way through a tiring NOFC back four.

Fortune continued to favour the home side and the final goal of the game had more than a touch of good luck about it as Tomlinson somehow managed to get his hand to a lobbed shot only to look back and see the ball just loop into the net for Bury's 7th.

However, NOFC can go away from Greater Manchester with their heads held high as their defence was not to be beaten again and their performance against one of the IFA's top sides represents a marked improvement for a side still in its infancy. They can also be pleased as their recruitment drive continues to pay off Dunlop and Naib-Khill and quickly improving, right back Colin Ocho all playing well, whilst Carl and Joel along with Stu and Deano acted as the midfield engine room. Carl earning himself the Man of the Match award.

Indeed with more depth in the squad and a home game against Whitby Wanderers just around the corner, the first win for this ambitious bunch of geordies can not be far away.


Hope that's ok. Ocho's, Carl's and Joel's last names would be useful :lol:
