On a warm Monday evening the Newport U10 yellow team travelled into Limerick to take on Parkville.
Newport started the first half shooting up the hill and were attacking right from the kick off. Our midfield of Ciaran Carey, Evan Moran and David Whelton tormented Parkville for the whole half and only some great goalkeeping and great defending kept Parkville in the game. Eventually Evan Moran found a way through and scored a great goal. Parkville were not completely out of it though and counter attacked well but Joe Crowley and James Anderson dug in and defended well but not long before half time Parkville found a way through and scored. Newport did not allow their heads to drop and fought back and Evan Moran again scored for the yellows before half time.
In the second half shooting down the hill there was only one team in it and Evan Moran added another goal to complete his hat-trick and not to be out done Ciaran Carey also scored his own hat-trick with David Whelton completing the scoring late on.
Another great performance from the whole team.
The squad on the day was Conor O’Brien, James Anderson, Joe Crowley, Stephen Ryan, Owen Grant, Ciaran Carey, Evan Moran and David Whelton.

U10 Reds v Regional
Saturday, April 30 2016 (Derryleigh Park)
Newport U10 Red Team played Regional United on Sat 30th April in Derryleigh. We played against a strong wind in the 1st half with Zach Ryan opening the scoring with the first goal. Regional made many strong attempts to score but James Delahunty & David O’Brien kept a very strong defence line. Conor Molamphy & Alex O’Neill & Cillian Collins did very well in midfield & Martin McCabe in the forwards. Then Conor Molamphy finally got his 1st score of the game which he so well earned. Luke Kennedy made some powerful saves in the first half. A great second half from Newport but Regional were unlucky not to score as they had some good chances but great defending from Damien O’Brien & Dylan Jones never let them pass. Conor Molamphy continued to play outstanding football & scored 2 more goals. We would like to thank everyone who supported us on the day.
Squad: Luke Kennedy (Capt), Damien O’Brien, Martin McCabe, Alex O’Neill, David O’Brien, James Delahunty, Zach Ryan, Cillian Collins, Conor Molamphy
U10 Yellows v Mungret Regional
Friday, April 29 2016 (Derryleigh Park)
On Friday evening Newport U10 Yellows entertained Mungret U10’s at Derryleigh.
Newport had a slow start and struggled at first to get into the game but by half time had scored two very good goals through Senan Ryan and Adam Power with Nathan Keppel having a particularly good game in midfield.
The second half was a different story with Newport firmly controlling the match and it did not take Senan Ryan long to score two more goals to complete his hat-trick with Adam Power completing his shortly after. Continue reading
U10 Yellows v Summerville
Saturday, April 23 2016 (Portland Park)
On a sunny Saturday morning the Newport U-10 yellow team travelled in large numbers to take on Summerville.
Earlier on in the season we had been involved in a great game against Summerville and this one turned out to be no different. The match kicked off and straight away Newport went on the attack with Adam Power, Ciaran Carey and Senan Ryan causing the Summerville defence all sorts of problems and as the half wore on Adam and Senan got on the scoresheet with Darragh Meaney having a fine game in the centre of Midfield.

U10 Reds v Regional Utd.
Saturday, April 23 2016 (Crescent College)
Newport U10 Reds made the trip to play Regional United in Crescent College. We got off to a fantastic start with Conor Molamphy scoring the 1st goal in the 1st minute of the game. Our midfielders Damien O’Brien, Alex O’Neill, Cillian Collins & Conor Molamphy played particularly well in covering all the pitch. Zach Ryan scored a superb goal in the 20min of the game with Dylan Jones helping to make it possible. We were unlucky to concede a goal just before half time but as soon as Newport got back out on the pitch in the 2nd half they were determined to score again. Regional United got 2 goals within the 1st 10min of the 2nd half & this put Newport under pressure but they never gave up & continued to work tirelessly throughout the game with Conor Sweeney, Martin McCabe in the backs but unfortunately Regional United scored again. David O’Brien scored a powerful goal in the 20th min of the game. A special mention must go to our Goalkeeper James Delahunty who stepped in as goalie at the last minute & pulled off a string of superb saves throughout the match. We would like to thank all the supporters who came to support the team, it was very much appreciated.
Squad: Captain – Zach Ryan

Wednesday, April 13 2016 (Athlunkard)
The Newport U10 yellow squad travelled in to take on Corbally on Wednesday evening and not for the first time this season we had a full squad to choose from.
The match kicked off with Newport shooting into the wind but we were able to strike first with a goal from Adam Power after a period of play that had kept Corbally pinned back into their own goal mouth for an extended period. Corbally came back into it and pulled level and dominated the middle part of the first half but our dependable goalie Darragh Gavin kept them at bay before Conor O’Brien scored a very well taken goal to see the Yellows lead at half time.

Newport U10’s Red team played Geraldines on Wednesday evening in Derryleigh Park. We got off to a fantastic start with a first goal of the season from Zach Ryan in the 4th minute of the game. The game settled down with Geraldines coming more into the game as the 1st half progressed. James Delahunty, Damien O’Brien, Martin McCabe did their best to keep the ball out but unfortunately, just before half time Geraldines got a goal to level it. In the second half the Geraldines team got a good start with quick goals. Newport again came more into the game, with Dylan Jones, Evan Keogh, David O’Brien & Alex O’Neill showing great skill. Newport Reds were playing very well with Conor Molamphy scoring another superb goal. This really inspired our lads and following great play by Luke Kennedy winning the ball in the middle of the field gave the final pass for Conor Molamphy to score his second goal on the night. Newport really took over in the final few minutes. Every player in the squad played their part and all played a fantastic match. Thanks to everyone that supported us on the night, it was greatly appreciated.

On Friday evening the Newport U-10 yellow team travelled to Shelbourne Park to take on Ballynanty.
The game kicked off with Newport shooting up a hill and into a strong breeze, Ballynanty took advantage of this and attacked in numbers straight from the kick off. For most of the first half our defenders Joe Crowley and Owen Grant backed by our ever impressive goalkeeper Darragh Gavin had to work hard to keep Ballynanty at bay, but as the half wore on Newport were gradually getting back into the game and Senan Ryan as usual scored a great goal.

Wednesday, March 30 2016 (Annacotty)
On Wednesday the Newport Under 10 yellow team travelled in to take on Aisling Annacotty. As usual with this team we had almost a full quota of players to choose from despite it being in the middle of the school holidays.
Right from the kick off both teams attacked each other with real pace and determination with Newport scoring two very good first half goals from Paddy Hussey and Adam Power. The second half continued along the same lines as the first with our star player for the day Conor O’Brien scoring two very good goals in his first outing as a forward this season. As the game went on and the lads started to tire, we had our brilliant keeper Darragh Gavin to thank as he made some remarkable saves to keep us in the game. Senan Ryan also kept up his goal a game streak by netting in the second half. Our two midfield dynamos of Darragh Meaney and Ciaran Carey must have covered every blade of grass on the pitch as the whole team battled right to the very end.
The team for the day was Conor O’Brien, Darragh Gavin, Ciaran Carey, James Anderson, Owen Grant, Stephen Ryan, Darragh Meaney, Senan Ryan, Paddy Hussey, Joe Crowley, Adam Power and our captain for the day was David Whelton.
