The Magpies scored twice in the first half to take a second pre-season victory in a game where more trialists were out to impressed, surrounded by most of the first team squad.

Spencer Bibby’s fifth minute own goal was added to by Trialist (4) close to half time, and despite a Marcus Carver penalty miss and North West Counties hotshot Carl Grimshaw reducing the arrears late in proceedings, Jamie Vermiglio’s side took the win.

Magpies squad: Urwin, Eccles, Trialist, Blakeman, Trialist, Trialist, Leather, Agbozo, Cottrell, E.Newby, Trialist, R.Moore, C.Moore, Greenfield, Brickell, A.Newby, Hooper, Trialist, Trialist, Carver, Trialist

Attendance: 403

Referee: Peter Shacklady

Assistants: Keith Martin & Daniel Chadwick
