YORK City have been knocked out of the FA Youth Cup after suffering a penalty shootout defeat away to South Shields.

After the third qualifying round tie finished level at 1-1 after 90 minutes, the match was sent to spot-kicks, where York’s Kyle Lancaster saw his sudden death effort saved and Shields converted for a 5-4 victory.

Earlier in the match, the North East side went in front through Oli Cresdee’s deflected strike on 20 minutes.

York looked the side most likely to score as Max Ezard saw a close-range header well saved before Tom Algar had a free kick palmed over.

City continued to create chances, with Josh Knowles and Ben Dale both coming close.

With 15 minutes remaining, the Minstermen were finally level as substitute Jonny Shepherd dispatched a penalty.

But it was South Shields who were most clinical from 12 yards in the subsequent shootout.

York: Hogan, McLoughlin, Haase (C), Algar, Owen, Dale, Lancaster, Gordon, Knowles, Ezard, Clayton.

Subs: Shepherd, Magwere, Heaton, Pickles, Burland.
