Newport scorers: Diarmuid O’Riordan (3), Adam McEvoy & Aidan Ryan
Newport Town AFC travelled to UL on Sat 20th of May to contest the U13 Div 1 LDSL Cup Final.
Having prepared well Newport came up against a stubborn Janesboro team who were well drilled in defence. It was a tight game until late in the first half Adam McEvoy intercepted a pass and calmly rounded the keeper to put Newport up 1-0 at half time.
Newport now pushed on in the second half and a cross from Adam McEvoy was finished to the net by Diarmuid O’Riordan to make it 2-0.
Newport now well on top and playing some delightful football increased their lead with Diarmuid O’Riordan scoring his second after latching on to a through ball from midfield.
Aidan Ryan after coming on in the second half scored a great individual goal holding off a Janesboro defender to score with great precision to the bottom corner.
Diarmuid O’Riordan secured his hat-trick and finished off the scoring from the penalty spot after a ball was handled on the line.
Newport Town U13 A team can now hold their heads up high after completing the League and Cup double. Well done lads and thanks to the players, parents for their effort and support throughout the season.
Congrats from Peter and Eoin
