Castle fall to Defeat

Newcastle Town suffered defeat to the hands of Bootle on Saturday which was an opportunity for Castle to try and pull away from the bottom group.

Bootle had a chance with a goalmouth scramble after 5 minutes but the ref deemed a foul on Castle to break up their chance, Castle's first real chance of the game come from debutant Eden Bailey after he was fed in the box by Jack, however, his shot was at the Bootle keeper.

Castle did cause issues for Bootle down the left hand side with Lewis Jarman and Bailey linking up well. Whereas on the right side Michael Conlon returning to the club was proving to be a solid addition with his movement down that side and his link-up play with the middle 3. But all balls into the box by Castle were dealt with by the Bootle backline, much the same way that Castle dealt with any chances from Bootle.

HALFTIME - Newcastle 0-0 Bootle

The second half started much similar to the end and majority of the first with the middle of the pitch seeing most of the ball and both sides steela defending on show preventing the other team from getting the early break threw.

It took 78 minutes for the first goal when a corner come in for Bootle and after a little scramble McGowan got the final touch and put the ball into the back of the net. Bootle continued to get a second similar as Castle continued to press to get the leveling goal but it was deep into injury time when Bootle got the second and sealed the victory with a lovely curling effort from Millington inside the area to tale victory back to Merseyside.
