A bright morning sunny saw  the Newport U16’s travel to the Cresent Comp for the 12 noon kick off to face a potentially tricky tie against Regional in their first taste of Premier Division football.

And so it proved to be as a bright start from Newport quickly changed as Regional soon got into their rythmn. Continue reading

Junior C, Div 4, Moyross C 0 – 1 Newport Town AFC C

Wednesday, August 26 2015 (Moyross)

Newport scorer: Daniel O’Sullivan

History was created last night when our Junior C’s won their first ever league game in Limerick League, and what a win it was.

A mixture of fresh face, twinkle toed youths and slightly more weather beaten faces and solid frames of couple older experienced heads saw C team take the 3 points on offer in a tough fixture away to Moyross.

Playing with a stiff breeze in the first half Newport had the better of the early exchanges, with Harry, Bobby, Thomas all going close to scoring. Continue reading

Junior A, Div 1A, Fairview B 1 – 1 Newport Town AFC

Sunday, August 23 2015 (Fairgreen)

Newport scorer: Dave Murray

After starting the season with two good wins Newport went into this game full of confidence. On what was a very warm afternoon both teams showed a lot of effort in the game with not a lot between the sides. Newport had the better of the first and deservedly went in at the break one nil up. This was a great in-swinging corner which was met powerfully by the head of Dave Murry leaving the Fairview keeper with no chance. Newport had chances to extend their lead except for some good goalkeeping by the Fairview keeper. On the stroke of half time Newport gave away a penalty but this was superbly saved by Eoin Larkin who was making his first start of the season. Continue reading

Junior C, Div 4, Newport Town AFC C 0 – 4 Hill Celtic B

Sunday, August 23 2015 (Derryleigh Park)

In the clubs first ever C team game we faced a very experienced Hill Celtic B side in Derryleigh. Newport had Thomas Carroll, Bernard Healy, Dan Powell, Harry Sheehy all aged 16 in the starting line up, alongside Mike Quigley, Brian MacCauliffe who are 20. This is the future of the club and in esscence what the C team main goal is to develop players.

Newport played well on the day, but two setbacks early on threw this inexperienced side a wobbler. Firstly we were awarded a penalty but the Hill Celtic keeper managed a great save, Hill celtic went to other end and were awarded a penalty of their own which unfortunately the Ref deemed it a goal scoring denying tackle by our keeper which produced a red card. To rub salt in Hill Celtic scored the penalty. A tough mental start for our young side. Continue reading

U17, Div 2, Newport Town AFC 3 – 6 Holycross

Tuesday, August 18 2015 (Derryleigh Park)

Newport scorers: O.G, Nathan Hartigan & Evan Arnold

Our under 17s were on the road after their very disappointing loss to Annacotty on Saturday evening. Newport Town were home to Holycross on a sunny Tuesday evening even though Newport Town were still struggling due to annual leave from several members of the panel Newport were in high spirits that tonite game would kick start their season.

Newport Town started the fastest of the two teams creating an opportunity after just 2 minutes through Aaron O’Neill.

Newport started to pile on the pressure but the work was not rewarded and against the run of play a confusion at the back Holycross raced on to get their first goal. Continue reading
