Newcastle United were knocked out of the FA Cup after a shocking 1-0 defeat to Cambridge United at St James’ Park.

Newcastle dominated possession coupled with the debut of new signing Kieran Trippier, but they struggled to penetrate the Cambridge United’s defence.

Joe Ironside scored the only goal of the game for the visitors in the 56th minute.

Jacob Murphy and  Jack Lankester have their goals ruled out for offside.

Cambridge goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov delivered fine saves during the match, especially in the latter stages.
