U13 Schoolboys are Crowned LDSL Div 1 League Champions

U13 League Champs
Well done to our U13A side who wrapped up their league-winning campaign with a comfortable victory over a gallant Lisnagry FC side this evening in Derryleigh Park in front of a large Newport crowd.

The lads dominated the league by winning 13 out of their 14 games and proved to be very worthy champions. Jerry Flynn of the LDSL presented the trophy to co-captains, Aaron Coleman & Shaun Bonfield. This group of players are the most-unassuming and hard-working bunch of young men and are a great credit to their parents, coaches and our club. They go about their job week in, week out without any fuss or drama and on a very even keel. Peter Coleman & Eoin Bonfield have done a brilliant job with the lads and have made very steady progress over the past 3 years. Cup finalists 2 years ago, cup winners last year and league winners this year with the reward of premier league football next season. They are still in the running for the cup with an away semi-final to Aisling next week. Well done lads, enjoy the celebrations but back training on Saturday. Thanks to everyone who turned up to watch the game and stayed around for the post-match celebrations. We hope you enjoyed yourselves.

U12 Girls NTSFL Greens Cup Winners
NTAFC U12 Girls Green team completed a great day for the club last Saturday by winning the NTSFL U12 Cup Final, shortly after our U12 Red team had just won the Shield final. Killavilla were the league champions and were unbeaten all season which is a major achievement for any team. But this was a cup final and the Newport girls under the management of Robert Bailey and Micheal Lenihan went out to give it their all and they sure delivered on a 2-1 scoreline with a goal from Emily Hurley and an O.G.

What a year 2016 has been for the club both on and off the pitch and more good news coming today.

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.
