U18 Div 2, Newport Town AFC 8-1 Regional Utd B

Sunday, April 28 2019 (Derryleigh Park)

Scorers: Jack O’Carroll 3, Colin Coleman 2, Darren Collins, Jay Ryan & Killian O’Malley

Newport played the same opposition midweek cup opposition, Regional Utd, in the league in Derryleigh Park on Sunday afternoon and were comfortable 8-1 winners thanks to a hat-trick from Jack O’Carroll, a double from Colin Coleman and goals from Darren Collins, Killian O’Malley & Jay Ryan.Unfortunately the win was not enough in Newport’s quest for league honours as Cals late, late victory away to Caherdavin was enough to secure them the league title. Newport will finish the season as runners-up, which is a decent league campaign. However the lads are still hoping to make it to a Cup Final in Jackman Park for the second year running but in their way is Caherdavin, who they play in the semi-final next Saturday in Greenhills at 6.30pm. This will be a tough game as in the two games played so far this season between the sides, it’s one win apiece, so it could take extra-time and even penalties to separate the sides. If Newport do make it to the final, it will be played in Jackman Park on Thursday, May 9 against the winners of Shelbourne & Cals.

Match Squad: Josh White, Chris Carmody, Jack Noble, Killian O’Malley, John Ryan Rose, Devon Ryan, Ciaran Flynn, Brendan McMahon, Darren Collins, Jack O’Carroll, Colin Coleman, Haytam Kamil, Jack O’Sullivan, Jack Ryan & Jay Ryan
