Clubhouse Opening & Family Fun Day

Ribbon Cutting PLaque

Sunday, August 27 2017 was a truly momentous day for Newport Town AFC when John Delaney, C.E.O. of the Football Association of Ireland cut the ribbon to officially open our new clubhouse in Derryleigh Park. Tony Fitzgerald, FAI President and other dignitaries were also in attendance on the historic day. 47 years after its foundation in 1970, the club now finally has a permanent clubhouse of its own.

It has taken a lot of hard work, time and dedicated commitment from the current committee over the past few years to get to this stage but it’s been a labour of love. However the current committee are simply following on from all the dedicated committee members and other volunteers down through the years whose hard work and vision helped us arrive at this historic milestone in the club’s long & proud history. Unfortunately some are no longer with us to see the fruits of their labour but they were surely smiling down on us. The current committee are simply standing on the shoulders of giants.

As a club, NTAFC now fields over 30 teams and has almost 400 registered players. We’ve come a long way but the journey still has a long way to go.

The main event of the day was the cutting of the ribbon by John Delaney but the club also had a family fun day in Derryleigh Park and an open invitation was extended to the entire community to attend and the community turned out in huge numbers with almost 1,000 people in attendance. Without the support of the FAI, our community and local businesses since our foundation, the club would simply not be in the strong position it currently finds itself.

After the afternoon’s activities, the celebrations continued back in O’Sullivan’s Bar late into the night with music from Martin Byrnes followed by traditional music with local musicians.

Player Registration for 2017/2018 Season

Membership Fees 2017-2018 Season
With the new season just a few short weeks away, membership of NTAFC for the coming season is now open. The membership fees for 2017/2018 remain mostly unchanged from last season. This was a conscious decision by the committee as a reflection on how so many of our players and their families were very generous in supporting our recent fundraising campaign for the new clubhouse.

As an amateur volunteer based football club, we’ve committed to meeting the repayments on a loan in excess of €250,000, bringing the total investment to date of €1.2m in Derryleigh Park. We see this as an investment in our local youth, their future as well as being a valuable resource for our community. Everyone’s support and patronage of the club, helps make our vision a reality.

This coming season, we will have upwards on 400 players playing on over 30 teams from Nippers to the Junior A team. Running a club of this size is a very costly business both on and off the pitch and the membership fee is an integral part of our income.

Membership fees contribute towards the following;

• Registration fees with the various leagues (LDMC, LDSL & NTSFL)
• Repayments on €250,000 loan for new clubhouse.
• Player insurance (every registered player receives comprehensive insurance cover)
• Use of top-class training & playing facilities incl. floodlit astro-turf pitch and 2 grass pitches.
• Full use of new modern clubhouse.
• Access to training and match equipment including balls, jerseys, first aid kits, water bottles, bibs etc.
• Countless hours of training and on matchdays put in by our dedicated coaches and team managers.
• Entry fees to FAI National Cup competitions
• Maintenance and running costs of playing facilities and clubhouse in Derryleigh Park.

Membership Fees
• Newport Nippers (U7 – born in 2011 or after) – €40
• U8 to U11 (born in 2007-2010) – €60
• U12 to U16 (born in 2002-2006) – €70
• U17 & U18 (born in 2000-2001) – €70
• Junior A,B & C – €80

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.
