Saturday, December 1 2018 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Kaitlyn Bradshaw 3, Rachel Carey & Abbie Lenihan

Newport U17 girls had a 5-1 win at home to Birdhill. It was our best performance of the year with all 16 girls putting in a great performance. Newport got off to a great start when Kaitlyn scored after receiving a great pass from Abbie. For the second goal, Abbie showed off all her skills driving through from midfield to slot home into the corner. Birdhill got one back before Chelsea put Kaitlyn through again 3-1 at half time. In the second half Newport continued as they did in the first half constantly sending on fresh legs. Rachel stepped up and slotted home a free kick from outside the box. Kaitlyn finished off with another goal for her 3rd on the day. This was close to a complete performance against a very strong Birdhill side. Well done girls, and we look forward to our next game.
