Newport Town AFC U11 girls team started their 2105/16 season in the North Tipperary League with a win over Knigh Utd. All the 13 girls in the panel played their part when called upon. Our goalie Aoife Kennedy kept a clean sheet was always in control of her area. Our defence of Amelia Healy, Mollie O Hora, Sadbh Lenihan and Eimear Ryan were resolute in keeping Knigh Utd at bay.
Our midfield of Shauna Pearson, Eryn Kennedy, Jane Hurley and Heather O Neill were purposeful in both attack and helping out the defence when called upon.
Our attack of Emily Hurley, Robyn Moloney, Laura Finn and Grainne Power put severe pressure on the Knigh Utd defence and goalkeeper.
The players have improved immensely since last season and are working hard at training with their coaches Micheal Lenihan and John O Hora. This performance should give them confidence to push on for the rest of their matches in the NTSFL U11 League.
