U16 Div 1, Newport Town AFC B 0-3 Aisling Annacotty B

Saturday, October 26 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

The U16B side also finished their league campaign on Saturday, when they suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Aisling Annacotty B. The scoreline was a bit harsh on the lads as they were denied a goal that was harshly disallowed and also hit the crossbar. The players now look forward to the cup quarter-final at home to Carew Park next Saturday.

Schoolboy / Schoolgirl Membership Registration


ALL Players MUST be registered with the club before taking part in training or games, or they will NOT be insured with the club. There are still a number of players that haven’t completed club registration. To facilitate parents’ requests, we will be holding another registration night for ALL schoolboy & schoolgirl players this coming Friday, October 11, from 6-9pm in the clubhouse. It is very important that a parent/guardian attend to complete a membership form and pay the relevant fee.

Membership Fees
• U7 Newport Nippers (born in 2013 or later) – €40
• U8 to U11 (born in 2009-2012) – €70
• U12 to U16 (born in 2004-2008) – €80
• U17 & U18 (born in 2002-2003) – €80

There are also family discounts where more than one child is playing with the club.

We are anxious to get as many registrations as possible completed as soon as possible and reduce the amount of time & effort required by our volunteers to complete the process. As we have close on 350 underage players, your co-operation would be greatly appreciated. Please spread the word.

Full details of membership & its benefits are on our website.

U16 (2004) National Cup, Newport Town AFC 1-1 Newmarket Celtic (NTAFC lost 1-2 on pens)

Saturday, September 21 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorer: Calum O’Connell

Newport Town AFC & Newmarket Celtic (Clare League) played out a very tight & exciting National Cup game this morning in Derryleigh Park. It was an excellent battle between two very good sides and it eventually took a penalty shootout to decide the outcome after the game ended 1-1 after extra time. Unfortunately it was the visitors who won the shootout 2-1 after Newport failed to convert 4 of their spot-kicks. It was 0-0 at half-time but both sides scored in the second half to leave it 1-1 at normal time. There were no goals scored in extra time meaning penalties would decide the tie. Hard luck to Newport who really played well, gave it their all and can be very proud of their effort. Calum O’Connell scored the Newport goal. Best of luck to Newmarket in the next round.

2019/2020 Annual Membership Subscription

Membership of NTAFC for the coming 2019/2020 season is now open. Membership runs from August 1 through to July 31. As an amateur volunteer based football club, we’ve committed to meeting the repayments on the clubhouse loan in excess of €250,000, bringing the total investment to date of €1.2m in Derryleigh Park. We see this as an investment in our local youth and their future as well as being a valuable resource for our community. Everyone’s support and patronage of the club, helps make our vision a reality.

This coming season, we will have upwards on 450 players playing on over 30 teams from Nippers to the Junior A team. Running a club of this size is a very costly business both on and off the pitch and the membership fee is an integral part of our income.
