United travelled to Shimna College for a league encounter with the seasiders.
The visitors went into this game on the back of a good recent run of results and were keen to keep this going. In the first half both teams battled to find openings and it was the home side who had perhaps the best of the chances with the United keeper Brian McMullan making a couple of good saves. United midfielder David Kelly had their best chance of the half when his shot went narrowly wide.
The second half was much the same as the first however United had the best of the opportunities when Ian McMullan diverted a shot from Scott McKibbin just over the cross bar. Aaron Cheevers had a great shout for a penalty when his shot cannon off the arm of a Newcastle defender however referee Cousins adjudged it to be accidental.
The game then petered out as a contest and both team had to be satisfied with a point.
