U18, Div 2, Aisling Annacotty B 0-8 Newport Town AFC

Sunday, April 14 2019 (Annacotty)

Scorers: Thomas Floyd 3, Colin Coleman 3, John Ryan Rose & Daniel Egan

In the U18 Div 2 league, second-placed Newport kept up the pressure on league leaders Cals when they travelled to play Aisling Annacotty B on Sunday afternoon and recorded an emphatic 8-0 win with a hat-trick from Thomas Floyd and another from Colin Coleman, on his very welcome return from suspension. John Ryan Rose (penalty) and Daniel Egan were also on the mark. Newport won the home tie earlier in the season but with several regular starters missing from the side this time out, this was a real test of the depth of the squad. The players that came into the starting side all did well and thanks also to the U16 players who also stepped up when called upon.
