Cambridge United defeated Newcastle United in the FA Cup third round.

It ensured a debut to forget for United’s Kieran Trippier after his £12million transfer from Atletico Madrid.

The League One side blubbed the gap of 41 places between the teams, as Joe Ironside beat Newcastle’s defenders to win the game.

Newcastle could not get past DimitarMitov in the U-‘s goal, despite their best efforts.

Trippier’s inclusion, just one day after completing his move from St James’ Park, did not give the hosts the needed boost. Cambridge held on to the surprise of the day.
