Junior B, Div 2B, Newport Town AFC 3-5 Holycross B

Sunday, December 10 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Kalem Harte 3

The B’s suffered a surprise 3-5 defeat to Holycross B. Newport enjoyed a 2-1 lead at one stage but Holycross fought back and the lads dropped their first points in four games. Despite the result, Kalem Harte enjoyed a fine individual performance with a well-taken hat-trick.

Junior B, Div 2B, Newport Town AFC 2-1 Mungret Regional B

Thursday, September 7 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Tristan O’Sullivan & Elliott Slattery

The B team continued their impressive start to the season with a real gritty performance against Mungret on Thursday night.

On an awful night for football, free flowing ball was never going to be on the agenda. After a nervy opening littered with mistakes we caught Murroe on the break on 12 mins after a poorly taken free kick by Murroe was booted clear from our defence and was impressively controlled by Tristian O’Sullivan who then slipped Dermot Ryan in behind the rear-guard and his goal bound effort was slotted home by Dean Ryan.
