Newport scorer: Aaron O’Neill
The U18s lost their cup semi-final on a 4-1 scoreline away to Star Rovers on Sunday afternoon. Newport, missing a number of players due to injury and unavailability, failed to get into their stride and the concession of two early goals gave them a mountain to climb. The consolation goal was scored by Aaron O’Neill. The 18s next game is away to Geraldines this Thursday at 6.30pm followed by another hame at home to Kilmallock on Sunday at 2pm.
