IMG_0624
Saturday, October 14 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Leah Moran 3, Shauna Pearson 2, Aoife Kennedy & Eryn Kennedy

The girls created a little footnote in NTAFC’s history by being the first underage girls team to play in the National Cup.

The girls rose to the occasion by producing an excellent team performance. With a strong wind behind us, the girls attacked from the off but Cahir caught us on the counter attack and scored against the run of play. The girls got straight back into the game when Leah equalised with a fine solo run. Leah scored her 2nd, an exquisite lob over the keeper, in between goals by the Kennedy twins, Aoife and Eryn.

Saturday, October 14 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Aaron Coleman

Newport played Lough Derg in the second round of the National Cup at home on Saturday morning. In what turned out to be a tough encounter with both sides giving as good they got. Lough Derg took the lead when a clearance from the goal line was picked up and finished to the corner of the net 1-0.

Newport upped the pace and when a corner wasn’t cleared properly it was picked up by Aaron Coleman who drilled the ball to the bottom corner. 1-1 at half time.

The second half was an even affair but Lough Derg took the lead half way through the second half and held on to the lead till the end.

Well done lads for a great effort today.

U17 Div 2, Newport Town AFC 3-3 Star Rvs

Sunday, October 8 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Jack O’Carroll 2 & Joey Kelly

The U17’s were the only junior side in action at the weekend. They welcomed Star Rovers to Derryleigh Park in their first home game since August 24 and played out an exciting 3-3 draw. It was a real humdinger of a game with 6 goals, the lead exchanging hands a couple of times, a penalty and lots of drama. Star took the lead 20 minutes into the first half but Newport equalised when Jack O’Carroll calmly slotted home after Jack Foley had been upended in the box by the Star keeper. 1-1 at half-time and it was anyone’s game. Star went back in front when we failed to clear the ball and the ball broke kindly for the Star player who scored from close range. Newport equalised when Jack O’Carroll fired home a brilliant free kick from the edge of the box and then went 3-2 in front when centre-half Joey Kelly rose highest to power a header to the far post from a corner. It looked like Newport would close out the game but unfortunately we failed to deal with a corner and the Star player headed home unopposed in the six yard box. Jack O’Carroll had a great chance late on but his well-struck free kick clipped the top of the bar. Points shared and a draw may well have been a fair result.

Next up is a trip away to league leaders Kilfrush next Sunday at 2pm.

Match Squad: Josh White, Robert Duggan, Brendan McMahon, Killian O’Malley, John Ryan Rose, Jack Noble, Ciaran Flynn, Sean Freeney, Jack Foley, Jack O’Carroll, Joey Kelly, Karl Kelly, Colm Carey, Cian O’Connell, Chris Carmody & Thomas O’Toole.

U13 Div 1, Bridge Celtic A 1-3 Newport Town AFC A

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Bridgetown)

Scorers: Conor Brett, Alex O’Toole & O.G.

Newport Town travelled to top of the table Bridge Celtic on Saturday morning facing a team with a 100% record in the league to date. Newport produced their best performance of the year to come away with a vital win.

The first 10 minutes were nip and tuck and Newport had to defend a number of early corners as Bridge applied some early pressure. However Newport slowly got a foothold in the game. David Healy was sitting in front of the back four and helped Newport get a foothold in the game. Conor Brett and Aaron Coleman in midfield started to get on the ball with Ryan O’Keefe and Sean Reddington providing width on the flanks and both playing balls in behind the defense for Alex O’Toole to latch on to. There were a couple of half chances but the opening goal came from pressure been applied to the back four by a number of Newport players which led to a corner. Alex O’Toole whipped in the Corner and Newport challenged and the ball hit one of the Bridge defenders and went into the net to put Newport 1 up. Newport then switched off and let Bridge back in the came almost immediately from the kick off. Half time score was 1-1. Continue reading

U13 Div 3, Regional United C 3-5 Newport Town AFC B

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Dooradoyle)

Scorers: Nathan Walsh 4 & David Whelton

We travelled to Dooradoyle to play Regional on Saturday with a depleted squad. A few of our lads were injured or couldn’t make the game. Dave Grant gave us 2 players from the U12B team Conor O’Brien & David Whelton. Both players played absolutely brilliant as if they were playing with us the whole time. So Mike Lyons & myself(Andrew Gleeson) would like to thank Dave Grant for his help.

The game started off with both teams playing good attacking football. Conor O’Brien was fantastic on the left side of midfield with some lovely runs & crosses into the box. Our midfield of Mikey Carroll, Danny O’Keefe & David O’Brien were outstanding and took control of the game. 10 mins into the game Nathan Walsh was put through with a lovely pass from David O’Brien & he finished with a lovely shot passed the keeper. Nathan grabbed his hat trick before half time with 2 lovely goals. We went in 3-1 at halftime. Continue reading

Newport Town AFC & Regional Utd Showing Racism the Red Card

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Eoin McLoughlin, Johnny Ryan, Jay Ryan & Calum Grant

On a day when the anti-Racism message was being promoted by the League the Newport U15a team welcomed Regional United to Derryleigh on a pleasant Saturday morning.

The Newport boys had 2 wins from 4 under their belt and needed to secure victory on their home turf to ensure they maintained their position in the top half of the Premier League.

Newport started strongly and were the better team in the opening 10 mins but with very few clear-cut chances being created. This was rectified on 15 mins when a lovely Calum Grant lobbed shot went over the goalie’s head to make it 1-0 to the home team – a very well taken goal. Newport now began to assert their authority more and you could sense that there were more goals to be had – and we didn’t have to wait long. Eoin McLoughlin rose highest to head a great goal from a crossed ball – brilliant to see some of Coach Seamus’s training ground work pay off in a match situation! Newport held their lead to come in at half time with the score at 2 nil – a well-deserved lead. Continue reading

U15B Newport Town AFC & Geraldines Showing Racism the Red Card

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Alex Considine & Luke Hamilton

Newport U15B were at home to Geraldines on Saturday. A good start by the boys saw them settle into the game. But it went against us mid-way in the first half. We came in at half time 0: 3 down. The second half saw an open game develop with both teams scoring. Unfortunately, we did not score as many as we would have liked. We were treated to an excellent goal from Alex Considine, which was scored after a cross into the box was scorpion kicked into the net. It was much appreciated by applause from both home and away supporters.
