Newport scorers: Lee Ryan (4), Thomas Hickey (2),Ethan Flaherty (2) & Luke Ryan Rose
Newport U13Bs played their second game of the season with a visit from Mungret Regional U13C to Derryleigh Park on a perfect Saturday morning for a match.
What a difference a few days makes. Having played very well in the previous game but losing on the score sheet, the Newport lads hit the ground running from the kick-off and had the opposition under pressure from the beginning to the end. Newport bombarded Mungret with wave after wave of attacks and the passing, movement and awareness from these young lads was a joy to watch. Newport scored 9 well worked goals and grew with confidence as the game went on.
An excellent performance all round and a lot more to come from this team for the remainder of the season.
Squad: Killian Sexton, Cian Kennedy, Jack Mullaney, Shaun Bonfield, Shane O’Halloran, Luke Ryan Rose, Thomas Hickey, Ethan Flaherty, Steve McCormack, Lee Ryan & Ben Noble

Newport Scorer: Thomas Hickey
Newport U13B’s kicked off their season with a tricky away game to our local rivals Aisling Annacotty. Although the score line suggests a one sided match the end result was not a fair reflection on the game as a whole.
Newport had a number of good chances during the game to stay level with their opponents but the rub of the green was just not with them on the night. Strong performances were delivered across the team and the goal of the game was a screamer from the boot of U12 player Thomas Hickey.
Thanks to U13A team Manager Denis O’Sullivan for helping on the night and to the parents for their support.
Squad: Luke Ryan, Ben Noble, Shaun Bonfield, Sean McCarthy, Ethan Flaherty, Steve McCormack, Killian Sexton, Lee Ryan, Tom Hickey, Shane O’Halloran, Aaron Pearson, Steve Madden, Cian Kennedy
