U15 Girls, Borrisokane 0-3 Newport Town AFC

U15 Girls v Borrisokane

U15 Girls v Borrisokane

Saturday, December 2 2017 (Borrisokane)

Scorers: Roisin Power, Rosie Quirke & Leah Moran

The U15 girls travelled to Borrisokane on Saturday 2nd December. Borrisokane started very strong, but Emma Moloney was not going to be beaten on the day, and pulled off some early great saves to keep us in the game. Newport team stepped up their performance with the backs of Rachel, Eimear, Kate Leona and Amber taking control building from the back through the hard-working midfield of Sarah, Kaitlyn and Abbie. Ava, Skye and Rosin were a constant threat up front but the Borrisokane keeper was also having a good game. However, the pressure eventually paid off when the ball was worked through midfield by Abbie and Kaitlyn to Rosin who scored a great goal. 1-0 half time. Continue reading

U17 Girls v Lough Derg

U17 Girls v Lough Derg

Saturday, November 25 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Roisin Power (2), Kaitlyn Bradshaw & Rachel Carey

Newport under 17’s girls produced a stunning and hard-fought victory at home on Saturday against local rivals Lough Derg, with the home side going 1-0 up just before half time thanks to an excellent finish from Kaitlyn Bradshaw following Kayla Tuohy’s run through and assist.

The girls came out fighting in the second half determined to get another goal, with Liberty Butler producing many well timed precise tackles on the right and some great through balls to the strike force of Ava Shinners and Kaitlyn Bradshaw. The goal came within minutes, with Rachel Carey converting from the spot after taking more than her fair share of knocks and sending the Derg keeper the wrong way and giving her no chance.

Scorers: Abbie Lenihan 4, Shauna Pearson 3, Eryn Kennedy 2, Aoife Kennedy 2, Leah Moran, Robyn McNamara & Aisling O’Gorman

We welcomed Loch Derg to Derryleigh on Saturday and the girls were on the attack from the start. Abbie scored early on and that settled the team down, with Shauna scoring a hat-trick in the first half. Eryn and Aisling adding to the scoreline before half time. Majority of Lough Derg’s attacks were dealt with by our back line. Any ball that did break through was capably handled by Emma, in goals.

With our midfield dominating, Aoife, Robyn McNamara and Leah added their names to the score sheet in the second half with Abbie scoring a hat-trick to bring her tally to 4. Lough Derg’s keeper got hurt in the game and we wish her all the best.

Team: Emma Wright, Robyn Moloney, Mara Van Aelst, Jane Hurley, Nadine Hartigan, Mollie O’Hora, Sarah Kelly, Robyn McNamara, Shauna Pearson, Leah Moran, Aisling O’Gorman, Abbie Lenihan, Eryn and Aoife Kennedy.

U14 Girls National Cup, Regional 3-1 Newport Town AFC

U14 Girls v Regional, Nat Cup Nov 19 2017
Sunday, November 19 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Abbie Lenihan

What a game! The scoreline doesn’t truly reflect how the game played out. With the game only 2 minutes in, Regional caught us with a quick break and our defender collided with their forward in the box and a penalty was awarded from which they successfully scored. We missed a glorious chance to equalise after some great work up the right side. 20 minutes in and they doubled their tally with a well placed shot.

In the 2nd half we upped the tempo and our hard work was rewarded with a goal. We pushed even further forward looking for that elusive equaliser but the Regional defence held strong. With a minute to go the girls all pushed forward and Regional valiantly defended and managed to break away. And with the last kick of the game, they scored their 3rd.

It was a truly entertaining game and either team could have came away victorious. Well done to both sets of players for giving their all and we wish Regional Utd all the best in the competition.

Team: Emma Wright, Robyn Moloney, Mara Van Aelst, Jane Hurley, Mollie O’Hora, Robyn McNamara, Sarah Kelly, Shauna Pearson, Abbie Lenihan, Aisling O’Gorman, Eryn Kennedy, Aoife Kennedy, Nadine Hartigan.

Junior A, Div 1B, Newport Town AFC 1-1 Shelbourne

Sunday, November 19 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Elliott Slattery

The A team welcomed second placed Shelbourne to Derryleigh Park on Sunday morning and both teams played out a hard-fought game, which ended with the points shared after a 1-1 draw. Newport more than held their own and took the lead when dead-ball specialist, Elliott Slattery, scored a contender for goal of the season. His free-kick from 40 yards out was fired to the top corner giving the keeper absolutely no chance. Shelbourne battled back to equalise and in the end a draw was probably a fair result.

Team: Marc Barry, Ross Dunne, Mike O’Brien, Christy O’Connor, Elliott Slattery, Kevin O’Brien, Peter O’Sullivan, Kieran McCarthy, Devlin Courtney, Brian O’Sullivan & Andrew Kennedy.
Subs: James Lynch, Sean Ryan, Nathan Hartigan, Odhran Brett & Jamie Collins.
