Scorers: Jack Ryan 2, Johnny Ryan & Jack O’Carroll

Having been 1-4 down after 24 minutes, NTAFC staged an incredible away comeback to score a stoppage time equaliser to make it 4-4 and bring the game into extra-time. Newport were well on top in extra-time but couldn’t find the elusive winner and the game went into the dreaded penalty-shootout. Unfortunately Swords won the tie 5-4 on pens. The lads showed great fighting spirit to stage the comeback and almost win it in ET. We are all very proud of your efforts.
