Soccer Sisters Festival of Football:

Aviva Trip May 2017 003
Last Wednesday, ten of our schoolgirl players had the honour of representing Newport Town AFC at the FAI Soccer Sisters Festival in the Aviva Stadium. Newport Town AFC was one of the 8 clubs selected to participate due to the fact that our recent Easter Soccer Sisters Camp was the largest and most successful in the country. The road to the Aviva in May is now a well-worn path for the girls as this is the third year running that NTAFC has been one of the select few clubs to qualify for the event.

From the minute the players arrived at the Aviva they were treated like superstars. Irish international player, Rihanna Jarrett, chaperoned the girls for the day. She was very nice and got on great with the girls. The girls also had a Q&A session with Aine O’Gorman another international player.

The girls took them to do some drills and learned fancy skills from the experts. They were given tips on shooting and moved on to play two small sided games against Rush FC. Overall, the girls had a brilliant day. Sue Ronan (Head of Women’s Football in the FAI) and her team couldn’t have been nicer from start to finish. There were also two other teams from Tipp; our old friends Ballymackey and Killenaule. After a truly memorable day, the girls all went home with smiles on their faces.

Travelling Squad: Emma Wright, Robyn Moloney, Amelia Healy, Robyn McNamara , Shauna Pearson, Eimear Ryan, Mollie O’Hora, Heather O’Neill, Eve Berry, Eimear Shanahan.

Travelling Coaches: John O’Hora & Louise Powell.

Building Work Starts on New Clubhouse

Nov 14 2016 1 Nov 14 2016 3Nov 14 2016 4

What a year 2016 has been for the club both on and off the pitch and more good news coming today. We were delighted to welcome Larry McGrath and his team on site to Derryleigh Park to begin construction on our new state of the art clubhouse. It is hoped that the new clubhouse will be open in time for the start of next season. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get to this stage of the ongoing developments in Derryleigh Park but there is still a lot more to do. Exciting times ahead. Click here for photo updates of the work in progress.


FAI Player Development Plan

As part of the new FAI Player Development Plan, there are no match scores or league tables being recorded for non-competitive games (U11 and under). These games are all about player development and allowing the young players express themselves on the football pitch without being concerned about scorelines and league positions. Other clubs, may show results etc. but as a club, Newport Town AFC will not be displaying any results etc. on our Facebook page or club website.

A link to the FAI’s Player Development Plan is here.
