U12, Div 3, Pike Rovers B 2-1 Newport Town AFC

Saturday, September 16 2017 (Pike Field)

Scorer: Nathan Keppel

On Saturday afternoon Newport u12B’s travelled into Limerick to take on Pike Rovers. A tough game was expected as Pike had easily won their opening 3 games, scoring 25 goals in the process while only conceding 1.Pike started the match as expected in all-out attack mode and unfortunately Newport found themselves a goal behind after 5 minutes. The loss of the early goal stung Newport into action and their defence well marshalled by Darragh Gavin and backed up by James Delahunty and Owen Grant soon got the measure of the Pike attackers and anything that got through the defence was dealt with by our superb goalkeeper Jack Hayes, this in turn allowed our midfield of Paddy Hussey, Stephen Ryan, Evan Keogh and Joe Crowley to start to influence the game while our lone forward Conor O’Brien kept the Pike defence pinned down with his excellent running.

U12, Premier, Newport Town A 3-1 Mungret Regional A

U12A Sept 6 2017
Wednesday, September 6 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Ciaran Carey, Adam Power & James Moloney

It was a cool night in Derryleigh as Newport faced Mungret in their third game in the space of a short week. Newport went out with nothing but confidence off the back of a very good result against Fairview last Saturday morning.

Mungret began the game much quicker as they took an early lead. Despite this Newport began to dominate possession in the midfield as Ciaran Carey and Evan Moran played Mungret out of the park with excellent passing and strong tackling. Luke Kennedy in goals kept Newport in the game with some excellent saves as Mungret piled on the pressure. The Newport forwards never gave the Mungret defenders a moments rest as they continued to attack with pace and power. The Newport defence was as solid as always and Newport ended the half the stronger of the two teams. Half Time Newport 0 – 1 Mungret. Continue reading

U12, Div 3, Newport Town AFC 1-1 Caherdavin Celtic B

U12B Sept 2 2017
Saturday, September 2 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Conor O’Brien

Newport U12 B’s hosted Caherdavin in Derryleigh Park last Saturday. Yet again this was another nail biter.

Jack Hayes was in top form and pulled of some incredible saves that kept Newport in the game against this strong Caherdavin side. Newport’s perseverance paid off with a Conor O’Brien goal that put the home side ahead heading into the break.

The second half was very lively and both sides had lots of shots on goal. Caherdavin eventually broke through with a goal to even the game and that was how the game played out.

Newport players really played well for each other and supported each other very well in the pitch.

U12, Premier, Newport Town AFC A 0-6 Aisling Annacotty A

Wednesday, August 30 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

A high tempo kicked off from the very start at Derryleigh this Wednesday at 6.30pm in ideal conditions. Both teams seemed nervous within the first ten minutes and the ball was readily turned over by both teams as much passing went astray. Settling down both teams were to deliver what can be only described as an exceptional first half which belied their young age. Continue reading
