In a local derby, nothing could separate Newport and Murroe and the honours were shared, with both teams taking a point from the game. However Newport could have snuck it at the death when J C Ahern’s shot came off the post but in fairness, Murroe also had chances so a draw was a fair result.
The draw keeps Newport in the top half of the table. Best on the day for Newport were Kalem Harte and the recently returned, Dave Murray.
A big welcome back to Fletcher after a long period out with injury. Looking very trim, indeed. A true captain.
Squad: Mark Shinnors, Eoin Bonfield, Tom Morris, Dave Murray, Kieran O’Sullivan(C), Kalem Harte, Mike Hayes, Danny Healy, JC Ahern, PJ O’Rourke, Chris Carroll. Subs used: Colm Lees, Kyle O’Connor. Management Mike O’Donoghue.
