On Friday evening the Newport U-10 yellow team travelled to Shelbourne Park to take on Ballynanty.
The game kicked off with Newport shooting up a hill and into a strong breeze, Ballynanty took advantage of this and attacked in numbers straight from the kick off. For most of the first half our defenders Joe Crowley and Owen Grant backed by our ever impressive goalkeeper Darragh Gavin had to work hard to keep Ballynanty at bay, but as the half wore on Newport were gradually getting back into the game and Senan Ryan as usual scored a great goal.
The second half belonged to Newport as we spent the vast part of the half camped in and around the Ballynanty goal mouth and any time Ballynanty broke out our second half defenders James Anderson and Stephen Ryan were more than up to the task. Further goals were added by Darragh Meaney and Ciaran Carey.
The team on the day was Darragh Gavin, Nathan Keppell, David Whelton, Owen Grant, Joe Crowley, Conor O’Brien, and Senan Ryan Evan Moran, James Anderson, Ciaran Carey, Stephen Ryan and Darragh Meaney
