Junior B, Div 1B, Newport Town AFC B 2-7 Glenview

Sunday, September 8 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Mattie Connolly & Colin Coleman

The Bs suffered a 7-2 defeat at home to a very strong Glenview side on Sunday morning. The scoreline doesn’t reflect the game as Newport gave away at least three or four cheap goals and we also missed a penalty and hit the crossbar. Again it was a very young starting eleven and despite being behind the lads kept plugging away until the final whistle. It’s a steep learning curve for this development squad but with a bit of luck the results will start to go their way. Mattie Connolly, with a very brave header and Colin Coleman with a clinical finish, were the Newport scorers.

Match Squad: Brendan Coffey, Killian O’Malley, Jack Noble, Odhrán Brett, Dave Murray, John Barry, Nathan Hartigan, Daniel Egan, Mattie Connolly, Pa Murtagh, Colin Coleman, Dermot Ryan, Jay Madden & Ciarán Flynn
