Congratulations to our schoolboy player, Jack Noble, who after recent trial games, has been selected for the Limerick District League under 15 squad for the 2016 Inter League competition.
The Limerick District League will take on teams from the Waterford, West Cork & Limerick Desmond Leagues in the pool stages early in the New Year. This is a great honour for both player and club. We wish Jack well at representative level in the coming months.
Congratulations to our schoolboy players Elliott Slattery & Johnny Ryan, who have been selected as winners of Limerick District Schoolboys League Annual Sports Star Awards winners for season 2014/15.
Elliott, current captain of our U16 team, was selected as player of the year in last season’s U15 Div 1, while Johnny picked up his award for U12 Div 2.
This is a massive honour for the players, their families and the club. Newport have had award winners in previous seasons but never two in the one season. Continue reading

After their comfortable, first round victory over Caherdavin, Newport welcomed Star Rovers to Derryleigh Park for their cup quarter-final hoping that they could make it through to the semi-final. However Star have been a bit of a bogey team for the lads over the past few seasons and the games between the two sides are always very close. This game was to be no different. Unfortunately on this occasion it was Star who won this 7 goal thriller on a 4-3 score-line.
The Newport lads cannot be faulted on their commitment and style of play and despite the score line, it was definitely one of the team’s best attacking performances of the season, with every player giving a full 100% effort to the cause. On another day and with a bit more luck, the lads could have won this game. However credit to Star who defended very well especially in the last 20 minutes of the game to deny Newport a deserved equaliser. Unfortunately you don’t always get what you deserve. Continue reading

Caherdavin were the visitors to Derryleigh Park on Friday Evening. This was a typical end-of-season game, with both teams struggling to get out of first gear. These sides had met less than a fortnight ago in the cup, where Newport enjoyed an emphatic victory and this time around, the home side enjoyed another comfortable victory, albeit on a closer 4-1 scoreline.

Under 15 Squad 2014-15
Monday, April 13 (Derryleigh Park)
The under 15’s bounced back from defeat in their last league game to record an emphatic 8-1 win over Caherdavin Celtic at home in the first round of the Div 1 Cup to ensure their safe passage to the quarter-final, where they will welcome Star Rovers to Derryleigh Park.
The top pitch in Derryleigh Park was in pristine condition and the surface allowed the lads play the type of football that they are well capable of playing and they dominated the game from start to finish. There were some positional changes to the starting eleven, with Nathan Hartigan moving up front alongside Colin Coleman, Brian Keane slotted in very well at left back and Jack Noble moved from full back, up to the left wing, where he enjoyed his best game of the season.

The under 15’s second last league game of the season ended in defeat to title chasing Regional Utd in Derryleigh Park. The score line was a bit harsh on the lads as they went into a 2-0 lead but a combination of some sloppy defending from set-pieces and a controversial penalty were to be their ultimate downfall.
Newport were 2-0 up after 14 minutes through well taken goals from Devlin Courtney. Unfortunately by the 25th minute the score was level at 2-2 and then two minutes later, Regional were awarded a penalty which they dispatched to take a 3-2 lead. On 32 minutes, Regional scored their fourth after Newport failed to contest a corner and the Regional player had a free header to score. Continue reading
