U10 Yellows v Parkville
Saturday, March 19 2016 (Derryleigh Park)
After a long winter lay off Newport U-10 Yellows finally got back into action with a match against Parkville at Derryleigh on Saturday morning. We were absolutely delighted that a full squad of fourteen players turned up and we did our best to ensure that all players got as much game time as possible.
The first half was a tight end to end affair with both teams attacking well and playing some nice football but Newport gradually got stronger as the half went on and we went in up at half time courtesy of a good goal from Senan Ryan. Continue reading

Newport U10’s Red team hosted Pike Rovers in Derryleigh Park. It was the 1st match this year in which the Silent Sideline was in operation with parents & coaches staying silent throughout the game except for cheers & encouragement.
Newport had plenty of the ball in the 1st half with a noticeable improvement in their passing game, which we had being working on in training for the past few weeks. Our midfield of Conor Molamphy, Damien O’Brien and Cillian Collins & Zach Ryan all played particularly well in covering all the pitch. We were unlucky to concede a goal in the 18th minute. But Newport never gave up and continued to play well with Evan Keogh and Martin McCabe in the forwards trying to get an equaliser. They were duly rewarded for their efforts when Martin McCabe got his 1st goal of the season, 5 mins into the second half. Continue reading
Over the next two weekends (October 24 & 31), the club will be taking part in Silent Sideline Saturdays at under 10 & 11 games. Silent Sideline Saturdays are organised so that players can play with the freedom to make their own decisions. Very often in kids’ sports, adults, parents and coaches become overly vocal in their approach to working with young players. However well-intentioned some of them may be, the results are not always positive. With a Silent Sideline game, the coaches, parents and spectators are asked to keep talking to a bare minimum on the sidelines. One coach from each team will be given the task to instruct (not during the game), whilst everyone else watches on in SILENCE. Continue reading
