The Derryleigh Diary – Week 01 2015

Happy New Year to our players, coaches, supporters, sponsors and their families.

On field activity resumed last weekend after the extended Christmas break and unfortunately the start of 2015 wasn’t a great one with all four teams in action suffering narrow defeats. Our Juniors bowed out of the Lawson Cup after a 3-2 defeat away to Wembley Rovers in a game that had everything including 4 goals in a nine minute spell, a disallowed goal and plenty of talking points. It was a bad day at the office but our focus once again turns to the league next weekend, when we are at home to Caherdavin. Then on Sunday, January 18, we look forward to the Munster Junior Cup, when we will face Clonmel Celtic in Derryleigh Park in the last 32. Continue reading

The soccer club would like to wish everyone in the Newport area, especially our players, coaches, supporters, sponsors and their families a very happy New Year and hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Due to the bad weather and the scheduled Christmas break, there has been no on-field activity. However football is scheduled to resume next weekend in both the junior and schoolboy/girl sections. The main event will be the Junior’s first round Lawson Cup game away to fellow Div 1A team, Wembley Rovers. The lads have been training over the Christmas and hopefully this will stand to them next weekend.

Our Junior A team continued their recent run of good form when beating Caherconlish 2-1 in a tight league game at Derryleigh Park last Sunday morning with both goals coming from Sean ‘Bond’ O’Brien. With ten league games played, this win consolidates Newport’s fourth place position.
