Junior A, FAI Junior Cup, Rd 4, Granville Rangers 2-4 Newport Town Town AFC

Sunday, November 11 2018 (Glenwood)

Scorers: Christy Doyle 2, Davy Ryan & Brian O’Sullivan

It was a historic & memorable day for our club last Sunday, as for the first time in our 48 year history, we have made it through to the out of town stages (last 64) of the FAI Junior Cup following the 4-2 win away to Granville. Despite going 2 goals behind in the first 6 minutes, the lads didn’t panic and having brought the game level at 2-2 at half-time, thanks to goals from Christy Doyle & Davy Ryan, Newport dominated the second half and further goals from Christy Doyle & Brian O’Sullivan ensured our safe passage into round 5. All eyes will be on the draw that’s due to take place on Tuesday, Nov 13, to see if we are home or away and to which of the other 63 teams from all over Ireland that we will face in the next round. Well done to Marc Barry and his squad on this great achievement.

UPDATE: We have been drawn at home to Carbury FC of the Sligo / Leitrim Disrict League with the game provisionally scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 2 in Derryleigh Park.

U18, FAI Youth Cup, Rd 2, Newport Town AFC 1-3 Aisling Annacotty

Sunday, November 11 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Jack O’Carroll

Unfortunately, despite a very good performance against Aisling Annacotty on Sunday afternoon, the U18s bowed out of the FAI National Cup on a 3-1 scoreline. The game was much closer than the scoreline suggests as this was a game where we matched the current Premier League leaders in overall play and if we had been a bit more clinical in front of goal and showed a bit more composure at times, we could have caused an upset. Despite the result, the performance will give the lads great confidence for the league campaign.

U15 Girls, Newport Town AFC 2-2 Knigh Utd

U15 Girls Squad v Knigh Utd

Saturday, November 10 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Sarah Kelly & Aoife Kennedy

Knigh were the visitors to Derryleigh today and they arrived with a strong contingent. We were very sluggish at the start of the game and Knigh took full advantage and scored the opener. When we finally got going, some great running by Emily who then crossed into the box from which Aoife pounced on the loose ball to bring us level.

In the 2nd half we played a bit more football and a strike from Sarah outside the box put us in the lead. We switched off again and allowed Knigh to be 2 against 1 in our box and they drew level. In fairness the girls tried their best to get a winner and when we thought Caragh had scored, it was ruled offside.

A shout out to Abi who played her first game for NTAFC today and our best wishes to Aoife whom we hope makes a full and quick recovery after her injury today.

Team: Emma Wright, Nadine Hartigan, Mara Van Aelst, Jayne Hurley, Eryn Kennedy, Sarah Kelly, Robyn McNamara, Aoife Kennedy, Emily Hurley, Chelsea King, Caragh Flynn(c), Mollie O’Hora & Abi Rainsford.
Coaches: Rob Kelly, Eddie O’Gorman & Trish Kennedy.
