Junior Season Preview

With pre-season completed, the 2018/2019 Junior season kicks-off this evening when the Junior A team, under the helm of new manager, Marc Barry, welcome Knockainey to Derryleigh Park with a 6.30pm start. This will be a tough opener for the A team as the visitors were unlucky to be relegated from Div 1A last season and no doubt will be anxious to bounce straight back up. Knockainey have strengthened their squad during the off-season with the signing of former Janesboro player, John Tierney. However, Newport have also been active over the summer and the signings of Dave Ryan from Pike and Christy Doyle from Fairview along with the experienced Jimmy Fyffe will bring lots of experience and talent to the squad. Blend this with the introduction of some of last year’s league winning Youth side and you have an exciting mix of players who will hopefully start the season well and look to better their 5th place league finish last season.

The B’s start their league campaign in Div 2B tomorrow evening when Athlunkard B will be the visitors to Derryleigh Park at 6.30pm. Dave ‘Dobs’ O’Brien will once again be player-manager for the B’s and following-on from their Cup win and third place in the league last season, sights will be firmly set on being involved in the promotion shake-up at the end of the season. Dobs has a large squad to choose from and will also be a mixture of youth and experience, again with some of last season’s youths making the progression from under-age football. Continue reading
