Junior C, Div 3A, Moyross 4-5 Newport Town AFC

Sunday, October 27 2019 (Moyross)

Scorers: Gary Bargary 3 & David Kennedy 2

Our C team were the only junior side in action at the weekend and they made it two wins on the trot with a 5-4 win away to Moyross courtesy of goals from Gary Bargary (3) & David Kennedy (2). This was a good away win for the lads as it’s never easy to get a result in Moyross. Special mention for Josh White, who pulled off a great penalty save to ensure that Newport secured the 3 points.

U16 Div 1, Newport Town AFC B 0-3 Aisling Annacotty B

Saturday, October 26 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

The U16B side also finished their league campaign on Saturday, when they suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Aisling Annacotty B. The scoreline was a bit harsh on the lads as they were denied a goal that was harshly disallowed and also hit the crossbar. The players now look forward to the cup quarter-final at home to Carew Park next Saturday.

U15 Premier, Caherdavin Celtic 2-1 Newport Town AFC

Saturday, October 26 2019 (Greenhills)

Scorer: Ciaran Darcy

The U15s wrapped up their premier league campaign with a 2-1 defeat away to Caherdavin. Newport had enough chances to win the game but unfortunately despite playing some good football, the failure to take their chances seems to have been the story this season and it looks like the lads might drop down a division next season.

U13 Div 1, Newport Town 5-0 Bridge Celtic A

Saturday, October 26 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: James Moloney 4 & Conor O’Brien

The U13s enjoyed a very good 5-0 win at home over a gallant Bridge Celtic side in the final league game of the season. James Moloney, with 4 goals, was the scorer-in-chief with Conor O’Brien scoring the fifth.

Junior A, FAI Junior Cup, Round 2, Newport Town AFC 4-2 Moyross Utd

Sunday, October 20 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Elliott Slattery, Kev Connolly, Brian O’Sullivan & James Lynch

Newport advanced into round 3 of the FAI Junior Cup following a 4-2 win at home over Premier A league leaders, Moyross, in front of a decent crowd in Derryleigh Park on Sunday morning. The visitors won the opening league game of the season on a 4-3 scoreline after Newport squandered a 3-1 lead and this game was expected to be a tough affair.

Newport opened the scoring in the 4th minute, when an Elliott Slattery free-kick on the edge of the box was deflected to the net. The home side were playing well and exerting pressure on the Moyross side and their efforts were rewarded on the half hour mark, when Kev Connolly rifled home a slick pass from Jake Dillon on the edge of the box, after some good work by Brian O’Sullivan in the middle of the park. A 2-0 halftime lead was no more than Newport deserved.

However, like in the first game of the season, Moyross proved to be tough opposition and when they curled in a well-struck free-kick in the 52nd minute, their tails were up and went up a gear. The next 20 minutes were nip & tuck but when Moyross equalised in the 72nd minute after striker beat Newport net-minder, Harry Ryan to a bouncing ball it looked like lightning might strike again.

However this is a much improved Newport side and they regained the lead in the 83rd minute, when Brian O’Sullivan fired home a cross from substitute, James Lynch. Newport ensured safe passage to the next round when James Lynch was on hand to tap home a cross from Jake Dillon in the 87th minute. The lads will have no game for the next 2 weeks at least, but all eyes will be on the draw for the next round of the FAI Junior Cup to see who their opposition will be. This will be the last round before the out of town stages and hopefully we will get a home draw and avoid the big Limerick Premier League sides still remaining.
