U11 Girls Cup, Newport Town AFC 0-1 Ballymackey (AET)

Monday, April 16 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

On a wet and windy evening in the middle of April our U11 Girls bowed out of the cup after an epic game between two evenly matched sides. Both teams had chances in normal time to get the winner. It was to be Ballymackey who scored a great goal from distance in the first period of E.T to seal the victory. Best of luck of Ballymackey who now play Holycross in the final. We will now play BT Harps away in the Shield semi-final on Wednesday, April 25.

Thanks to all the parents and supporters who attended to cheer on the girls. Apologies, but as the weather was so bad we couldn’t even get a team photo.

Tom, James and Viv.

U11 Blues v Carew Park April 5 2017
Wednesday, April 5 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Newport U11 Blue Team hosted Carew Park on Wednesday evening in Derryleigh Park in what was a cracking game. Newport started brightly with Ciaran Carey dominating midfield. All the team was working hard with Dylan Jones and Aaron Joyce constantly making great runs and putting the Carew Park defence under pressure. This paid off in the 10th minute when Conor Molamphy finished to the net. Newport continued to press and were rewarded shortly after when Aaron Joyce scored a great goal from a brilliant through ball delivered by Ciaran Carey. At the other end Damien O’Brien and James Delahunty were dominant and Conor Molamphy was putting in his usual strong performance in midfield. Just before half time Luke Kennedy put in 2 great corners with Martin McCabe finishing to the net from the second corner with a confident finish. Continue reading
