U13 Div 3, Newport Town AFC B 3-1 Regional United C

Saturday, November 4 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Nathan Walsh 3

We played our first game at home since the new clubhouse was opened & all the lads loved the comfort of having their own changing rooms.

We went into this game in good spirits after we had beaten Regional at their place a few weeks back. We started the better of the 2 teams with some great chances from Paddy Hussey & Conor O’Brien. Brían Corrigan & David O’Brien were in great form in midfield and from some lovely play from them we scored our first goal after David put a great ball through for Nathan Walsh which he slotted away past the keeper. We created a few more chances before halftime but just couldn’t find the net & unfortunately with a lapse of concentration in our defence we conceded a sloppy goal which made it 1-1 going into half time.

U13 Div 1, Newport Town AFC A 6-0 Parkville A

Saturday, November 4 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Conor Molamphy 2, Conor Brett 2 & Alex O’Toole 2

Newport U13a’s had an impressive 6-0 win at home v Parkville on Saturday morning to build on their win away against league leaders Bridge Celtic last time out. This results puts them back in the mix in the league and hopefully they can continue to build on this recent form.

Newport started well and created a few half chances early on. The breakthrough came when Conor Brett had a shot saved but the ball came out to Conor Molamphy who hit a great shot from the edge of the box to put Newport 1-0 up. Newport were playing some nice football and better was to come from Conor Molamphy when he hit a brilliant high shot from well outside the box that dipped into the top corner giving the keeper no chance.

U13 Div 1, Bridge Celtic A 1-3 Newport Town AFC A

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Bridgetown)

Scorers: Conor Brett, Alex O’Toole & O.G.

Newport Town travelled to top of the table Bridge Celtic on Saturday morning facing a team with a 100% record in the league to date. Newport produced their best performance of the year to come away with a vital win.

The first 10 minutes were nip and tuck and Newport had to defend a number of early corners as Bridge applied some early pressure. However Newport slowly got a foothold in the game. David Healy was sitting in front of the back four and helped Newport get a foothold in the game. Conor Brett and Aaron Coleman in midfield started to get on the ball with Ryan O’Keefe and Sean Reddington providing width on the flanks and both playing balls in behind the defense for Alex O’Toole to latch on to. There were a couple of half chances but the opening goal came from pressure been applied to the back four by a number of Newport players which led to a corner. Alex O’Toole whipped in the Corner and Newport challenged and the ball hit one of the Bridge defenders and went into the net to put Newport 1 up. Newport then switched off and let Bridge back in the came almost immediately from the kick off. Half time score was 1-1. Continue reading

U13 Div 3, Regional United C 3-5 Newport Town AFC B

Saturday, October 7 2017 (Dooradoyle)

Scorers: Nathan Walsh 4 & David Whelton

We travelled to Dooradoyle to play Regional on Saturday with a depleted squad. A few of our lads were injured or couldn’t make the game. Dave Grant gave us 2 players from the U12B team Conor O’Brien & David Whelton. Both players played absolutely brilliant as if they were playing with us the whole time. So Mike Lyons & myself(Andrew Gleeson) would like to thank Dave Grant for his help.

The game started off with both teams playing good attacking football. Conor O’Brien was fantastic on the left side of midfield with some lovely runs & crosses into the box. Our midfield of Mikey Carroll, Danny O’Keefe & David O’Brien were outstanding and took control of the game. 10 mins into the game Nathan Walsh was put through with a lovely pass from David O’Brien & he finished with a lovely shot passed the keeper. Nathan grabbed his hat trick before half time with 2 lovely goals. We went in 3-1 at halftime. Continue reading
