Nottingham Forest Academy 11 defeats Newark FC 3-2 at Lowfields
A Lewis Chambers goal put Newark FC on the verge of a historic win over Nottingham Forest, but a City Ground development side made a remarkable comeback in the final five minutes to run out 3-2 winners.
Newark's joint-manager Damo Parkinson said it was a typical performance that summed up both Newark Town FC and Newark Flowserve — teams who came together to form Newark FC for the one-off spectacle that celebrated 150 years of football being played in the town.
"Newark worked hard and were disciplined, and although they (Forest) looked really good, I thought we created more chances than they did," Parkinson told the Advertiser after last night's final whistle.
