The Derryleigh Diary – Week 49 2014

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.

In Schoolboy soccer, both our under 15 & 11 teams are in flying form and both had fine victories at the weekend to maintain their push for league honours. Our U15’s made it five wins from five games with a 6-4 home win over Aisling Annacotty with the goals coming from Nathan Hartigan with a hat-trick, his third this season, Colin Coleman, Devlin Courtney & Jordan Mooney.

The 11’s are now joint league leaders after a comfortable 5-0 victory away to Janesboro with the goals coming from Adam McEvoy (2), Aaron Coleman, Thomas Hickey & Diarmuid O’Riordan.

Our under 12 girls suffered a home defeat to Nenagh AFC. This is the first season for these girls and they are improving with every game and enjoying every minute. Meanwhile our under 7 Boys & Girls had another great outing at their Futsal Blitz in Limerick.

This is a busy weekend on the playing front as our Junior A & B are in action as are our U17’s, 16’s, 12’s and 7’s. Fixture details are below.

Last week we held a very enjoyable Jersey presentation evening in O’Sullivan’s, where the club’s newest jersey sponsors presented their jerseys to the team manager or club captain. Details and photos can be found in this newsletter.

We hope to make a big announcement in the next few weeks regarding the new club website. Just watch this space!
