U13A v Aisling Annacotty
Friday, May 6 2016 (Derryleigh Park)
Newport scorers: Johnny Ryan (2) & Eoin McLoughlin
On Friday night the Newport U13A team played their Cup semi-final against a very strong Aisling Annacotty team
The match was played on a beautiful sunny evening in Derryleigh on the top pitch which was in absolutely perfect condition and looked truly immaculate in the summer sunshine .
Cup semi-finals will always be tough matches and Newport knew this was going to be a stiff examination against an Aisling team that were in a very good run of form recently.
And so it turned out as Newport were given as hard a 30 mins of soccer that they have played all season in that first half. Continue reading

An away trip to Corbally was on the menu for Wednesday evening, with the games rolling in thick and fast with injury casualties aplenty and illness playing havoc with our squad.
Newport started the game positively with few clear cut chances on either side, but it was Corbally who broke the deadlock in the 33 minute with a well taken goal giving them the lead at the interval. Some opportunist attacking straight after halftime doubled their lead with a third following soon after. Continue reading

U10 Reds v Regional
Saturday, April 30 2016 (Derryleigh Park)
Newport U10 Red Team played Regional United on Sat 30th April in Derryleigh. We played against a strong wind in the 1st half with Zach Ryan opening the scoring with the first goal. Regional made many strong attempts to score but James Delahunty & David O’Brien kept a very strong defence line. Conor Molamphy & Alex O’Neill & Cillian Collins did very well in midfield & Martin McCabe in the forwards. Then Conor Molamphy finally got his 1st score of the game which he so well earned. Luke Kennedy made some powerful saves in the first half. A great second half from Newport but Regional were unlucky not to score as they had some good chances but great defending from Damien O’Brien & Dylan Jones never let them pass. Conor Molamphy continued to play outstanding football & scored 2 more goals. We would like to thank everyone who supported us on the day.
Squad: Luke Kennedy (Capt), Damien O’Brien, Martin McCabe, Alex O’Neill, David O’Brien, James Delahunty, Zach Ryan, Cillian Collins, Conor Molamphy

Newport scorers: Daniel Egan & Johnny Ryan
The Newport U13A team confirmed the winning of the Division 1 League Title on Sat morning in their early morning clash with a young Fairview team. This team have now achieved back to back league titles which is a great testimony to the consistent talent and work rate of this very strong group of players.
In the game itself, Newport took the lead early when Dan Egan scored with a strong shot to the net after a good passing move very early in the game and it looked like Newport would drive on to secure an easy victory. Continue reading
