U16 Premier, Newport Town AFC A 1-0 Fairview Rgs

Saturday, February 23 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Daniel Egan

On a fresh and pleasant Saturday morning Newport Town U16A’S welcomed old Rivals Fairview Rangers out to Derryleigh Park for the first match of the Premier season in the new Summer Soccer season for 2019.

After the few “Short Season” matches over the winter it was great to be back to the real full season and as usual there was great excitement to see what the new season would hold .The Newport boys have consolidated their position in the top half of the top league over the last few seasons and the hope was that this trend would continue for the 2019 season.

Fairview were a big strong team and as always were well capable of playing good ground Football and so was the case again on Saturday. Fairview probably started the better and were on top in the early period of the game where they made their physicality count as they attempted to get their passing game going . However the Newport lads began to settle after 10 /15 minutes and gradually began to get themselves back into the game. The next 20/25 minutes was a great battle between 2 even teams with Newport maybe looking a bit more dangerous going forward but with just not being able to find the killer final pass in the box to break the deadlock . Fairview themselves had the ball come off the post so both teams were content enough to remain level after a pretty even first half.
