U18, Div 2, Newport Town AFC 6-1 Aisling Annacotty B

Sunday, February 25 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Nathan Hartigan 3, James Rochford, Adam Hurley & Jack Connolly

The Youths had their first competitive game in over 2 months, when they hosted Aisling Annacotty in Derryleigh on Sunday. The long lay off over the Christmas period was evident as the lads were slow to get going. Jack Connolly wearing the captain’s armband got Newport on the score sheet after the ball fell to him in the box after a corner from the right hand side after 20 minutes. Nathan Hartigan was next to score heading home from a cross field ball from James Rochford, 2-0 the half time score. The lads were a lot quicker off the mark in the second half, James Rochford forcing a mistake from the Aisling keeper for 3-0. The game quieted for the next 20 mins or so until Adam Hurley took his chance to make it 4-0. Nathan grabbed his second on 78 minutes after a great run in behind. Aisling managed to grab a consolation on 90 minutes after a scramble in the 6 yard box from a corner. Nathan completed his hat trick in spectacular fashion from the resulting restart, after Jack Landers rolled the ball into his path from the tip off, Nathan let fly with his left after spotting the keeper off his line and the ball sailed in to the back of the net, wrapping up a comfortable win of the lads.

U18 Squad v Maree Oranmore

U18 Squad v Maree Oranmore

Sunday, December 3 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

A large and supportive crowd attended Derryleigh Park on Sunday afternoon for the FAI Youth Cup third round game between Newport Town AFC and Maree Oranmore of the Galway League. The prize on offer to the winners was advancement to the last 16 of this prestigious national competition. Maree Oranmore FC were a bit of an unknown quantity but within a few minutes of kick-off it was clear to see that they were a serious outfit. The start of the game was a cagey affair but the visitors took the lead in the 17th minute when Newport failed to clear the ball from defence and despite keeper, Brendan Coffey’s excellent block from a close range shot, it was the the Galway side’s player who reacted quickest to the breaking ball and made no mistake in putting them in front.

Maree Oranmore continued to ramp up the pressure in the first half and Newport rode their luck at times but stood firm to stop the visitors extending their lead. Newport had no real clear-cut chances in the first 45 minutes but went into the dressing rooms at half time knowing that they were still firmly in the game. Continue reading
