U16 Girls, Newport Town AFC 3-0 Knigh Utd


Saturday, October 5 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Chelsea King, Abbie Lenihan & Robyn McNamara

In very wet conditions and the rain constantly pouring down, the girls took to the field with only a few groans 😀. Even though the pitch was in perfect condition, it was hard work moving the ball around in that weather. But the girls stuck to the plan and Chelsea with a deflected shot opened the scoring for us. In the 2nd half, a lovely run through the middle of the field by Abbie, who then slotted the ball past the keeper. With time almost up, Robyn headed in our 3rd from a corner crossed in by Ailín. Every girl had to work hard during the match to keep the clean sheet as Knigh went close on a few occasions.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our captain, Abbie Lenihan on attending FAI U17 National Assessments in Dublin. She is a wonderful role model and a great ambassador for NTAFC.

Also, well done to all the girls who received their Junior Results 2019.
