Campbell loses first game in charge of Macclesfield

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 261

The 'Silkmen' lost their first shoot out in history as they were defeated by Newcastle United'a U21 side.

Sol Campbell made a losing start to his managerial career, as Macclesfield Town lost on penalties to Newcastle United U21's in the Checkatrade Trophy. 

The League Two outfit were held to a 1-1 draw in regulation time, but lost 5-3 on penalties to exit the competition.

After the match, Campbell spoke to 'BBC Sport', stating: "It's not a culture shock for me at all. I like this football, I get this football. You still can play good football in League Two - that's the way forward, really."

The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender has started his managerial career at the bottom of League Two, but insists that he is unphased by the challenge ahead.

He added: "We have just got to be focused and keep on. They are cup finals every weekend."

Newcastle U21's took the lead in the tie, before Macclesfield Town hit back six minutes from time to force the tie to extra time and then penalties. But alas, Campbell was condemned to an opening defeat.
