U15 Girls Shield Final, Newport Town AFC 6-0 Knigh Utd

U15 Girls Shield Winners U15 Girls Shield Squad  U15 Girls Shield Captain
Wednesday, May 9 2018 (Villa Park)

Scorers: Kaitlyn Bradshaw 3, Rosie Quirke, Rachel Carey & Skye Sheehy

Wednesday evening saw the NTAFC u15 girls travel to Killavilla to face Knigh Utd in the Shield final.

It was clear from the second the whistle blew for kick off that our girls were there to play. They started strong and within a few minutes Kaitlyn Bradshaw buried the ball in the back of the net for the first goal. Some strong attacking play from the backs Roisin Power, Sarah Finn, Eimear Carey, Amber Deegan and Goalie Chelsea King meant that our mids and forwards Skye Sheehy, Abbie Lenihan, Kaitlyn, Rachel Carey, Ava Shinners and Carragh Flynn always had a clean supply of ball and this constant pressure saw Skye take an opportunistic rebound from the Knigh keeper blasting it into the net for the second goal. It was not all plain sailing for Newport as Knigh upped the intensity with a number of breaks but on the rare occasion that they broke through they were met by a determined keeper in Chelsea clearing her lines bravely. Just before the break Kaitlyn took a cross from Rachel on the volley that would make any premiership striker green with envy to claim her second goal of the night. HT Newport 3 – Knigh 0

The second half started intensely, Knigh were fighting hard to get back into the game. The strength and depth of our squad came into play as Leah Moran, Kate Harvey, Sarah Kelly Leah Guerin, Rosie Quirke, and Emma Moloney brought fresh legs and even greater determination. About 5 mins into the half, a rebound off a Knigh defender found the right boot of Rachel who made no mistake putting it past the keeper. Mid-way through the half Kaitlyn rounded off a seasons best performance by connecting with another quality cross from Rachel to get her hat-trick. Leah and Kate were through on the keeper but just caught offside. Rosie fought hard in the box to get the ball across the chalk to bring the tally to 6. FT Newport 6 – Knigh 0 Continue reading

U15 Girls, Killavilla 3-1 Newport Town AFC

U15 Girls v Killavilla Feb 3 2018
Saturday, February 3 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Abbie Lenihan

A bitterly cold morning in Roscrea set the scene for the Newport U15 girls fixture vs Killavilla. Coming to the business end of the league now and all teams are hungry for the points. This is very evident on the pitch with each encounter proving to be a bruising competitive battle.

The Newport girls had a slow start conceding 2 goals within the first 10 mins but the girls rallied and showed great character to compose themselves and tighten up their fight back. They created many chances but the Villa keeper was in inspired form denying at least 4 shots on target. Late in the half Abbie Lenihan found herself at the end of a brilliant cross by Leah Moran and buried the ball in the back of the net! HT Killavilla 2 – Newport 1. Continue reading

U15 Girls, Newport Town AFC 2-0 Birdhill

Saturday, January 6 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Abbie Lenihan & Ava Shinners

A cold, slightly breezy but blue skied morning was the setting for this Saturday’s much anticipated derby fixture between the Newport and Birdhill U15 girls.

Derby matches are always emotionally charged and this fixture was to be no different. The Newport squad had their work cut out for them facing this experienced Birdhill side.

The first half was an intense, even affair with Newport facing into the sun and still managing to put together some good football. The midfield and forwards in Ava Shinners, Skye Sheehy, Roisin Power, Abbie Lenihan, Sarah Finn and Kaitlyn Bradshaw worked hard from the start and showed great energy. They created a number of opportunities, but could not breach the strong defence of Birdhill. The backs with Rachel Carey, Eimear Carey, Kate Harvey, Amber Deegan and Keeper Emma Moloney kept a clean sheet in the first half with a very strong defensive effort of their own. HT 0-0.

The 2nd half started with the same intensity as the first, and by now the subs started to show their value. Carragh Flynn and Leah Moran worked hard up front, showing their strength with some great runs. About 10 minutes into the half, Abbie Lenihan broke through the Birdhill defence and made no mistakes in putting the ball in the back of the net. With their tails up after the goal, the Newport girls changed up a gear. Numerous attacks led to a few close calls with Roisin Power and Claire Kennedy being denied by the uprights. The backs bolstered by subs Leona Burke and Sarah Kelly ensured that very little passed the halfway line. The continuous pressure from Newport eventually saw some great inter play between Skye and Kaitlyn who supplied a beautiful through ball to Ava who buried it in the top corner. The defence held strong throughout the half and kept a clean sheet. FT Newport 2 – Birdhill 0.

A call out to Leah Guerin who turned out although she was injured and a speedy recovery to Rosie Quirke who could not make the match due to illness.

Squad: Ava Shinners, Skye Sheehy, Roisin Power, Abbie Lenihan (C), Sarah Finn, Kaitlyn Bradshaw, Rachel Carey, Eimear Carey, Kate Harvey, Amber Deegan, Emma Moloney, Carragh Flynn, Leah Moran, Claire Kennedy, Leona Burke, Sarah Kelly and Leah Guerin.

U15 Girls, Ballymackey 2-2 Newport Town AFC

Saturday, December 16 2017 (Ballinree)

Scorers: Roisin Power & Rachel Carey

Newport U15 girls travelled to Ballymackey on Saturday 16th December. The girls started well but went a goal down in the first half against the run of play. After regrouping at half time, the girls came out and played their way back into the match with great passing out of the backs to Roisin Power scoring making it 1-1. Newport were now well on top creating great chances with shots from Skye and Kaitlyn just wide of the post. Eimear Carey and Abbie were controlling midfield and pressure paid off when Newport were awarded a free kick and up stepped Rachel Carey with a great shot into the corner giving the Ballymackey keeper no chance to make it 2-1. With only one minute to go Ballymackey scored the equaliser hitting the bottom of the crossbar from a long range shot to share the points. The second half display was the best so far this year. All the squad played their part and had a great welcome for Caragh Flynn our latest signing.

Squad; Emma Moloney, Rachel Carey, Eimear Carey, Kate Harvey, Amber Deegan, Leona Bourke, Sarah Finn, Roisin Power, Abbie Lenihan, Ava Shinnors, Caragh Flynn, Kaitlyn Bradshaw Skye Sheehy, Leah Moran, Sarah Kelly and Leah Guerin.

Saturday, December 2 2017 (Borrisokane)

Scorers: Roisin Power, Rosie Quirke & Leah Moran

The U15 girls travelled to Borrisokane on Saturday 2nd December. Borrisokane started very strong, but Emma Moloney was not going to be beaten on the day, and pulled off some early great saves to keep us in the game. Newport team stepped up their performance with the backs of Rachel, Eimear, Kate Leona and Amber taking control building from the back through the hard-working midfield of Sarah, Kaitlyn and Abbie. Ava, Skye and Rosin were a constant threat up front but the Borrisokane keeper was also having a good game. However, the pressure eventually paid off when the ball was worked through midfield by Abbie and Kaitlyn to Rosin who scored a great goal. 1-0 half time. Continue reading
