Derryleigh Park Clean-up

Clean up Day 2017
The soccer club is holding a clean-up / maintenance day in Derryleigh Park this coming Saturday, May 27 commencing at 9.30am and we are looking for as many volunteers as possible to give us a hand. So if you can spare an hour or two at any stage during the day, it would really be appreciated. We hope to do some raking of the newly-cleared area above the top pitch, strimming, cutting of the banks and a general tidy-up. If you have any equipment that could be of use, especially rakes, forks, shovels, wheel-barrows, strimmers, lawn mowers please bring them along.

If everyone could give just a few hours of their time it will really make a huge difference. Many hands make light work. Please spread the word. Thanks in advance.

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.
