Sunday, September 15 2019 (Derryleigh Park)
Scorers: Davy Ryan, Jimmy Fyfe & Brian O’Sullivan
Unfortunately, all three junior games clashed on Sunday afternoon. For the A team, it was a local derby in Premier A, when 5th placed Newport welcomed 2nd placed Murroe to Derryleigh Park. Before kick-off Newport were 4 points behind Murroe with both having played 7 games. Newport made a lie of the league positions by putting in a great display to win 3-0 with goals from Davy Ryan, Jimmy Fyfe & Brian O’Sullivan. Another satisfying aspect of the game was a solid defensive effort to keep a clean sheet, only Newport’s second of the season.
