Kickoff: The second half is underway. Can Newcastle get themselves into the match?

Second half

Half time – Newcastle United 0-3 A-League All Stars

Newcastle’s second-string team is struggling to compete in this match. It’s 3-0 but easily could be four or five. Ben Old scored the first goal for A-League All Stars and has been ultra impressive getting forward. Maybe the Magpies can make some changes and get some synergy working in the second half.

44th min: Nearing half-time. It’s all one-way traffic for the A-League All Stars. And there doesn’t appear to be much experience on Newcastle United’s bench either.


Old latches on to the long ball, he rounds Gillespie, who had come outside the area. But the Kiwi couldn’t fire on his right foot into the empty net. The ball goes across the face of goal, it’s picked up by Taggart, who tees up Thurgate, but the low shot is just wide.

36th min: Kuol blasts over the bar after a mix-up between Paulsen and Marcelo. The flag goes up to save Kuol’s blushes. He should have hit the target though.

34th min: GOAL A-LEAGUE ALL STARS (Adam Taggart)

Another poor clearance from Newcastle is played by Thurgate straight to Taggart, who swivels and plants a shot in the left bottom corner. This could get ugly. Could easily be four or five already.

33rd min: Garuccio is found in space down the left by Leckie. He steps inside and unleashes a powerful shot straight at Gillespie.

31st min: Ben Old works the ball on to his favoured left but his curled shot is just wide. The All Stars are still dominating this match.

27th min: Turner-Cooke leaves the backpass short and Gillespie just manages to get it clear. That was nearly another goal.

26th min: GOAL A-LEAGUE ALL STARS (Nicolas Milanovic)

Garuccio clips the ball in towards the back post, Charlton misses the clearance and Milanovic pokes the ball under Gillespie. This could get ugly.

25th min: Kuol has Newcastle’s first shot on goal but it’s a tame shot straight at Alex Paulsen.

21st min: It’s a match being played on the terms of the A-League All Stars. Newcastle have had barely any possession in dangerous areas.


The A-League All Stars win the ball back after Old pressers Gillespie. Milanovic bursts into the area and his shot hits both posts before being cleared. Extraordinary that it’s not 2-0.


O’Shea picks up the ball outside the box, he attempts to curl a shot in but Gillespie gets across to comfortably parry wide.

13th min: This Newcastle United team is struggling for cohesion at the moment.

8th min: The A-League All Stars are dominating. Leckie nearly gets on the end of a cross at the front post but an excellent challenge by Kieran Thompson gets the ball clear.

5th min: GOAL A-LEAGUE ALL STARS – (Ben Old)

Leckie tries to worm his way through to find space in the box to shoot. A Newcastle defender gets a foot on the ball. It comes out to Old, who sweetly strikes it in the bottom corner. The All Stars keep up their record of scoring in every game.

4th min: The A-League All Stars are doing all the early attacking. It’s a Newcastle team missing all their stars. The only recognisable name is Kieran Trippier on the bench.

Kickoff: We are away at Marvel Stadium.
