U12 Girls, Clodiagh Rangers 0-7 Newport Town AFC

U12 girls v Clodiagh Jan 13 2018
Saturday, January 13 2018 (Drombane)

Scorers: Aoife Mellerick 3, Lauren Bailey 2, Jane Ryan & Heather O’Neill

Our Under 12 girls travelled up to Drumbane thurles today to play Clodiagh Rangers. It was a beautiful morning for a game of soccer but when we got there the pitch was very badly cut up and very mucky. But as they say it was the same for both teams.

It was our first game back after too much turkey and ham. So we were a little slow off the blocks.

But when we settled down it was a much improved display from our last game. With goals from Aoife Mellerick 3 Lauren Bailey 2 Heather O Neill 1 Jane Ryan 1. The game ended 7-0 with our girl of the match being Muireann Ryan who was brilliant in defence again.

But I have to say each and every player played well today well done girls. Click here for lots of of images from the game.

U12 Girls, Killavilla 5-0 Newport Town AFC

Saturday, December 9 2017 (Villa Park)

It was a beautiful crisp fresh morning when our under 12 girls travelled up to Villa Park for the top of the table clash with Killavilla. We had a full squad for the first time this season and we were confident we could get a result but from the off we were on the back foot. We just never turned up we made a lot of basic mistakes and were punished for them. At half time we were 4 down.

We regrouped at half time and the girls put in much better performance in the second half but it was not to be. The final score was 5-0. We learned a valuable lesson on Saturday that we need to be training twice a week when playing competitive soccer. We will regroup for after Christmas and go again.

Happy Christmas from the under 12 girls and coaches. 🎄

Saturday, November 11 2017 (Borrisokane)

Scorers: Jane Ryan 3, Aoife Mellerick 2 & Ciebha Guidera

Another eventful day today as our under 12 girls travelled to Borrisokane.
It was a wet and miserably day but or girls were in high spirits. The match was delayed because of a bad crash we met on the way. When the match eventually got started our girls started strong and opened the scoring on the 10 minute mark through Jane Ryan. Or second came 10 minutes later when Ciebha Guidera scored her first competitive in soccer. The first half ended 2-0. The Newport girls started to turn the screw in the second half and put Borrisokane under big pressure but their goalkeeper was strong and made some great saves. Jane Ryan broke down the left and slotted home her 2nd about 15 mins into the second half. Heather O’Neill again played well in defence. Aoife Mellerick put in another good performance and added 2 more goals and or girl of the match Jane Ryan scored our 6th and her hat trick and only for their good keeper she could have scored 6, Well done girls on another great win and clean sheet.

U12 Girls, Newport Town AFC 2-1 Ballymackey

U12 Girls v Ballymackey Oct 28 2017
Saturday, October 28 2017 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Lauren Bailey & Jane Ryan

This morning the under 12 girls hosted Ballymackey who have no less than 6 girls on the North Tipp team. It was a wet dull morning but that didn’t stop both teams from giving us a great game. Newport started on top and Lauren Bailey opened the scoring on the 20th minute. Aoife Mellerick attacked the Ballymackey goal with menace but it was Jane Ryan who made a brilliant under 12 debut that scored our 2nd goal just before half time. Ballymackey came back strong in the second half scoring with about 15 minutes to go and putting us under big pressure trying to find the equaliser. But our defence was rock solid with Muireann Ryan and Caoimhe Troy. But our girl of the match was Heather O’Neill who cleared all before her. Well done girls. Great win.

Team: Lauren Bailey, Lucy Bailey, Caoimhe Troy, Caoimhe Healy, Jane Ryan, Eimear Ryan, Muireann Ryan, Aoife Mellerick, Cliodhna Lenihan & Heather O’Neill
