Saturday, October 14 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Aaron Coleman

Newport played Lough Derg in the second round of the National Cup at home on Saturday morning. In what turned out to be a tough encounter with both sides giving as good they got. Lough Derg took the lead when a clearance from the goal line was picked up and finished to the corner of the net 1-0.

Newport upped the pace and when a corner wasn’t cleared properly it was picked up by Aaron Coleman who drilled the ball to the bottom corner. 1-1 at half time.

The second half was an even affair but Lough Derg took the lead half way through the second half and held on to the lead till the end.

Well done lads for a great effort today.

U14 Premier, Newport Town AFC A 0-2 Fairview Rangers A

Saturday, September 30 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Newport played host to Fairview in Round 4 of the league on Saturday afternoon. This turned out to be a tough encounter for the lads and although they turned in a good effort, they were beaten 2-0.

The first half started with Newport under pressure and the defended well until just before half time when an attempted clearance was blocked and fell to a Fairview forward who finished well to the keeper’s right.

Newport played better in the second and created some good chances put conceded late on again. It is a tough learning curve for the lads but they will learn and improve from these games.

U14 Premier. Newport Town AFC A 2-0 Regional United A

Saturday, September 16 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Stephen Madden & Lee Ryan

Newport resumed their league campaign v Regional on Saturday morning in a home tie. In what turned out to be a tough encounter from the start Newport came away with a 2-0 victory while not playing their best. The game started with neither team giving much away and it saw Regional getting chances but some very alert goalkeeping from Steve Macca Mc Cormack kept Newport in the game.

Newport had some efforts as well with the Regional goalkeeper making a good save from Lee Ryan. Newport went ahead in the first half when a through ball from Adam McEvoy was finished to the net by Lee Ryan. With Newport picking up some injuries in the second half the subs that came in played their part in seeing Newport to the victory. The second goal came from a great finish from Steve Madden.

2-0 the final score.

U14, Premier, Corbally United A 2-0 Newport Town A

Wednesday, September 6 2017 (Athlunkard)

Newport travelled to Corbally to play the second round of the League on Wednesday 06 Sept. This was another step into this team’s Premier career.

Having had a great result against Aisling in the league confidence was high after their performance in that game. Newport started well and struck the crossbar inside the first 5 minutes and really dominated the game throughout most of the half until just on half time when they conceded a goal from a corner. This was tough to take after playing so well.

The same pattern continued for the second half with Newport playing some good football. With the lads pushing hard for an equaliser they were caught for a second when a ball was played across the 6 yard box and was finished to the net Corbally 2 nil up. Still Newport came forward but were unable to score.

If they play with the same attitude and commitment for the rest of the year we will fear no one.
