U14 Premier, Newport Town AFC 5 – 6 Mungret Regional

Saturday, October 29 2016 (Derryleigh Park)

Newport scorers: Johnny Ryan 4 & Eoin McLoughlin

The U14 Aa’s welcomed Mungret Regional to the top field in Derryleigh on another beautiful Saturday morning. Newport were hoping to add to their 2 home victories and secure 3 more points in their premier league campaign and they started this game in a very strong manner. The Newport boys were down a couple of regulars but this was not evident in the first 5 mins where Newport were on top.

However against the run of play they found themselves 1-0 down when Mungret were awarded and converted an early penalty. The Mungret boys then duly doubled their lead 5 mins later with a good goal from a cross. Newport were rattled and after they missed a couple of chances to reduce the deficit Mungret scored a third to put them 3 goals to the good. Continue reading

U14, Premier, Newport Town AFC 4 – 2 Corbally United

Newport scorers: Johnny Ryan 2, Ben O’Sullivan & Eoin McLoughlin

Looking resplendent in their new Joe Walsh Flooring sponsored jerseys, the Newport U14As welcomed Corbally United to Derryleigh on a lovely bright and sunny Saturday morning.

This was a game that the Newport management and players knew was of critical importance as Newport were 3 points above Corbally in the premier table (after 4 matches) and a home win would put a decent gap between the teams and give a great boost to the Newport boys hope of maintaining and consolidating their premier league status.

Newport started very strongly and were on top from the off and almost immediately settled into a nice passing and expansive style of play. Confidence was high and they came close to opening the scoring early doors with a Johnny Ryan header off the crossbar and another Ryan effort just narrowly wide . The midfield hub of Calum Grant and Nathan O’Donoghue were playing great football and dominating that area of the field and this allowed the likes of Cillian O’Sullivan, Diarmuid O’Riordan and Eoin McLoughlin free reign to run at the Corbally defence from both the left and right flanks and this garnered great success for the Newport boys as the half progressed.

U14, Premier, Newport Town AFC 0 – 5 Limerick FC

Saturday, October 1 2016 (Derryleigh Park)

The Newport 14A team welcomed the Premier Division league Leaders to Derryleigh Park on a fine Saturday morning.

Limerick FC had won all their 3 previous league outings so everyone knew it was going to be another huge test of this newly promoted Newport team.

From the start it was obvious that this Limerick FC team were at a level above the Newport boys as they began the game at a ferocious pace that had Newport on the back foot from the off. Limerick had the physical presence that all the elite top tier teams seem to have and they allied that with many players with a supreme touch, pace and skill and had Newport penned back in their own half from the very beginning of the game.

Newport’s Ben O’Sullivan, Eoin Guilfoyle, Darren Coffey, Stephen Coffey, Lewis Maksoud and Stephen Ryan all manned the defensive stations at some point and battled valiantly to keep the league leaders at bay but this proved very difficult against this strong Limerick outfit and the away team were 2 goals to the good at half time.

U14A, SFAI National Cup, Newport Town AFC 2 – 6 Nenagh

Newport scorer: Johnny Ryan 2

Newport had a break from league action this weekend when they took part in the SFAI National Cup. They welcomed North Tipp Premier League kingpins Nenagh AFC to Derryleigh Park on Saturday morning.

While it was a break from Limerick U14 Premier league action, the luck of the draw had pitted them against a similar standard of opposition, as Nenagh AFC are a very strong Premier league outfit in North Tipp.

From the start Nenagh’s quality could be seen as they had strong physical players in all positions and all of whom were also very strong from a technical viewpoint and they began to run the Newport boys all over the field and Newport struggled to hold their shape as the first half progressed. Nenagh were well on top and the inevitable happened when they scored the first goal of the game early in the half and the Newport boys knew they were in for a tough mornings work. Nenagh had the upper hand for the rest of the half and deservedly added 2 more goals before the break to leave the score at 3 – 0 at half time with every mistake being ruthlessly punished at this level.

Management tried to rally the Newport boys at half time with the hope that the boys could show that they can compete against this higher level of opposition. Newport did slowly begin to play a bit more football but Nenagh were clinical with their chances and had 2 more goals added before the Newport boys got fully up to speed. Continue reading
