Newport Town AFC Launches its New Website

Newport Town AFC
Today is a very exciting, proud and special day for Newport Town AFC as we are delighted to announce the launch of the club’s official website in partnership with Carlos Lancha of Lancha Multimedia who has very kindly sponsored the design and set-up of the website. A lot of time, effort and man hours has been put into the new website by Carlos and committee members and we hope that you like the design layout & content.

The club has been growing from strength to strength since its foundation in 1970 both on and off the playing field with almost 250 players currently representing the club at all levels and the new website is another hugely positive step forward for the soccer club. It will be the focal point for information on all club activity for players, managers, our supporters, visiting teams and guests wherever they may be. Our existing weekly newsletter, ‘The Derryleigh Diary’, our presence on Facebook & Twitter and our weekly club notes in the local paper will continue as normal and will all complement the website. will also act as an archive for the club’s history for generations to come and it is our intention over time to record the club’s history back to its foundation in 1970 but this will be a work in progress.

We would ask you all to visit, take a look around the site and if you have any feedback or comments, please feel free to contact us on the club’s new e-mail address Please tell your friends & family about the website and help spread the word.

This is another exciting chapter in the club’s progression and we all look forward to the future.
