Newark Through As All Whites Beat Gedling

Newark Town beat Basford United U21’s in the Notts FA Senior Trophy to progress into the competitions semi-finals.

The Central Midlanders were ahead after thirteen minutes at Greenwich Avenue when Jackson Buckthorp poked in Sam Bartle’s header from a corner and the away side were two up nine minutes before half time when Ainsley Finney struck home past goalkeeper Musson.

Newark were three ahead just nine minutes into the second half when skipper Lewis Chambers cut in to fire home and it was four when Finney netted his second after more good work by his captain.

Basford did miss a penalty late on which was well saved by Town goalkeeper Eatough, himself earning a man of the match performance after a result kind to Newark, that perhaps didn’t show a true reflection of the game as the home sides young guns gave true fight against robust opposition.
