Junior B, Div 1B, Newport Town AFC 3-1 Aisling Annacotty C

Sunday, October 13 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Killian O’Malley, Colin Coleman & O.G.

The B team recorded their second win of the season with a fully deserved 3-1 win at home to Aisling C in Derryleigh Park on Sunday afternoon, courtesy of goals from Killian O’Malley, Colin Coleman & and O.G.

Newport opened the scoring in the 10th minute when a high cross from the right wing by Killian O’Malley deceived the Aisling keeper and the ball nestled in the back of the net. The remainder of the first half was close enough with neither side creating any clear cut chances.

Newport increased the tempo in the second half and began to exert a lot more pressure on the Aisling rearguard. Newport extended their lead in the 51st minute after some great work & neat interplay down the right hand side between Mattie Connolly, Colin Coleman & Killian O’Malley, who did very well to cut back inside the box and lay off a pass to Colin who slotted home from close range. Newport were now well on top as Aisling had to chase the game. The 3 points were secured in the 73nd minute, when a cross from John Barry was turned into his own goal by an Aisling player. The full squad at the game all got a run and there’s now some serious competition for places all over the pitch in what is a very young group of players. Aisling scored a consolation goal 2 minutes into injury time to deny Newport a clean sheet. Hopefully this win will see the lads kick on and make up a move up the Div 1B table.

Match Squad: Brendan Coffey, Jack Connolly, David O’Brien, Pa Murtagh, Killian O’Malley, Nathan Hartigan, John Barry, Odhrán Brett, Ciarán Flynn, Mattie Connolly, Colin Coleman, Jack Noble, Daniel Carew, Brian Keane, Kieran O’Keeffe & Jay Madden.

Scorer: Conor Brett

Hard luck to our U15 (2005) squad who lost 3-1 away to a very strong Fairview side in round 2 of the Skechers National Cup on Saturday morning. It was a super performance from the lads, whose efforts probably deserved more. Fairview scored their 3rd goal to clinch the game late on, when Newport had been pushing hard for an equaliser.

Goal scorers for Newport Chelsea King 3, Leah Moran and Rachel Carey.

U17, FAI National Cup, Round 1, Newport Town AFC 3-2 Ballymackey (AET)

Sunday, October 6 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Cillian O’Sullivan 2 & Daniel Egan

Well done to our U17 Youth team who staged a great comeback to advance to round 2 of the FAI U17 Cup after a 3-2 extra time win at home to Ballymackey on Sunday afternoon. Newport dominated the first half but failed to capitalise on the many chances created to leave the game scoreless at half-time. Ballymackey upped their game in the second half and scored twice in the third quarter to make it 2-0 and leave Newport chasing the game. Great credit is due to the Newport lads, superbly led by their captain Daniel Egan, as they never gave up or let the heads drop. Daniel Egan gave them hope when he headed home a Jack Ryan corner in the 75th minute. Just as it looked like the visitors would hold on to the victory, Cillian O’Sullivan was on hand to latch onto a fumble by the Ballymackey keeper and he poked the ball home from close range. No one in the large attendance would have denied that Newport deserved to bring the game to extra time.

The Newport lads now had the momentum as the game went into 20 minutes of extra time. With both sides tiring it was Cillian O’Sulivan who again was on hand to finish from close range with 6 minutes remaining to give the home side a 3-2 lead. Newport held their nerve as the clock counted down and were delighted when the ref blew for the final whistle. This was a super comeback and incredibly for the lads this was their second game in 24 hours as they also had to play an U16 schoolboy fixture on Saturday afternoon. There will be tired bodies tonight but the tiredness will be well worth it. Newport will now be at home to Shelbourne in the next round.

Munster Junior Cup, Round 2, Charleville 2-3 Newport Town AFC (AET)

Saturday, October 5 2019 (Charleville)

Scorers: Paul Ryan, Brian ‘Clemy’ O’Sullivan & Jake Dillon

Newport travelled to North Cork on Saturday evening to play Charleville in round 2 of the Munster Junior Cup. Both teams were on a decent run of form and with Charleville having won the earlier league encounter on a 4-1 scoreline, this was always going to be a tough task. The game turned out to be a very even contest between two good sides. Both teams scored in the first half to leave it 1-1 at half-time. Paul Ryan continued his impressive goalscoring run with the Newport goal. Newport took the lead in the second half thanks to a goal from captain, Brian O’Sullivan. However Charleville equalised to make it 2-2 and brought the game to extra-time. For the second game running, substitute Jake Dillon came off the bench to score to make it 3-2. Newport were reduced to 10 men, with 5 minutes remaining, when Seán Ryan was sent off for a second yellow but the lads dug deep to hold on for a great win.

U16 Girls, Newport Town AFC 3-0 Knigh Utd

Saturday, October 5 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Chelsea King, Abbie Lenihan & Robyn McNamara

In very wet conditions and the rain constantly pouring down, the girls took to the field with only a few groans 😀. Even though the pitch was in perfect condition, it was hard work moving the ball around in that weather. But the girls stuck to the plan and Chelsea with a deflected shot opened the scoring for us. In the 2nd half, a lovely run through the middle of the field by Abbie, who then slotted the ball past the keeper. With time almost up, Robyn headed in our 3rd from a corner crossed in by Ailín. Every girl had to work hard during the match to keep the clean sheet as Knigh went close on a few occasions.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our captain, Abbie Lenihan on attending FAI U17 National Assessments in Dublin. She is a wonderful role model and a great ambassador for NTAFC.

Also, well done to all the girls who received their Junior Results 2019.

Team: Emma Wright, Ailín Rochford, Ellie Kennedy, Mara Van Aelst, Caragh Flynn, Sarah Kelly, Abbie Lenihan (c), Robyn McNamara, Chelsea King, Neve Clements, Nadine Hartigan, Aoife Kennedy, Eryn Kennedy, Mollie O’Hora & Jayne Hurley.
