Junior C, Div 4, Newport Town AFC 0 – 3 Ballynanty Rvs

Sunday, February 19 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

The C’s welcomed league leaders, Ballynanty to Derryleigh on Sunday afternoon and unfortunately the visitors showed why they top Division 4, when they won 3-0 despite a decent Newport performance. The lads will face Ballynanty in the Cup next Sunday and hopefully will have learnt something from this encounter to turn things around when they next meet.

Newport scorer: Dave Ryan Rose

A cold and frosty morning threatened to postpone this top of the table clash but the morning sunshine soon cleared any doubts that this would happen.

A slow start to the game saw few chances from both sides but that was until the 27th minute when Newport’s midfielder Kevin O’Brien was deemed to have fouled a Mungret player in the box, with the home team converting the resultant spot kick.

The thaw of the morning sunshine slowly began to turn the frozen pitch into a mud bath with one spectator naming the game “Mud in the Cement”. This soft to heavy going suited some of Newport’s players who excelled in the conditions with memories of the old field in The Freigh in Newport being mentioned. Continue reading

Junior C, Div 4, Newport Town AFC 5 – 2 Shelbourne

Sunday, January 29 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Newport scorers: Steve McDermott 3, Dave Ryan Rose & O.G.

Following on from a competitive in house match last weekend Newport welcomed 2nd placed Shels to Derryleigh which was a make or break league game for the lads.

Following on from his “Bobby Dazzler” last weekend which went viral, Steve McDermott didn’t let the attention go to his head by opening the scoring to give Newport an early lead. Shelbourne soon equalized from the spot after the Shels player was “hacked” down in the box, only for “Bobby Dazzler McDermott” to give us the lead again, with Dave Ryan Rose making it 3-1 at the interval.

The 2nd half was a tense affair with Shels scoring first and missing some good opportunities. Newport then conceded a dubious penalty at 3-2 which the opposition failed to convert. Newport went onto stretch their lead, and rounded off the scoring with Steve completing his hat trick.

This very good win keeps Newport within touching distance of 2nd place and still in the hunt for the league.  Well done to all.

Next up: AWAY to Mungret Regional next Sunday 5th Feb (Cement Factory)
