Pride of place goes to the U17s who have made it through to the Div 2 Cup Final in Jackman Park on April 25, following a gritty 3-1 win away to Knockainey on Saturday evening with goals from Elliott Slattery (2) and Jordan Mooney. Newport were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to a long-range free kick and penalty from Elliott Slattery. The game was made safe in the 78th minute when Jordan Mooney was on hand to tap-in after Odhran Brett’s effort was only parried by the keeper. Knockainey scored a late consolation but it’s Newport who will now take on Mungret Regional in the final, which will take place in Jackman Park on Tuesday, April 25 at 7pm.
