U13 Girls, Newport Town AFC 5-0 Knigh Utd

Saturday, November 4 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Amelia Healy 3 & Shauna Pearson

Newport U13 girls faced Knigh Utd on Sat morning in Derryleigh Park. Both sides were unbeaten so far in the NTSFL so Newport knew that they faced a strong challenge as they did every time these sides met. The score line at the end does not give the full story of the match. At half time it was 1-0 thanks to a goal from Shauna Pearson but Knigh could have gone in at half time in the lead as both sides had chances. Newport brought on Amelia Healy at the start of the second half and with her first touch she hit the net. Amelia went on to score 2 more before the game finished. All the players and subs played their part when called upon and it was a great team effort. Thanks to Knigh Utd for a good competitive game.

U13 Girls, Newport Town AFC 3-0 Holycross

U13 Girls v Holycross Sept 23 2017
Saturday, September 23 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Aoife Mellerick 2 & Shauna Pearson

We played our old friends Holycross on Saturday at home. It was a better day for flying kites than soccer!! Thanks to Ger “Herbie” Healy for having the pitch in great condition. We knew Holycross were a well drilled competitive outfit, so we came up with a game plan to suit. The girls rose to the occasion. We played against a very strong wind in the first half , but our solid backs stood firm with some fierce tackling . Midfield again defended well and also had good attacking movements. It took 15 mins for Newport to open the scoring account with a goal from Aoife Mellerick breaking the seal. Not happy with one goal, she hit the net again 10 minutes later. 2 -0 Newport.
