Good wins for our 1st’s and Youths last week­end but un­for­tu­nately no joy for our 2nd team last week.

On Satur­day the youths hosted En­niskerry in the league and came out on top by 4 goals to two. Conor Ec­cle­ston set New­town on the way with an­other one of his spe­cials!

The game at times threat­ened to boil over at times and the vis­i­tors were re­duced to ten play­ers late in the sec­ond half. A brace of goals from Ossie Gaskin took the sting out of the op­po­si­tion and when sub John Halpin pow­ered through for the fourth goal, the points were sealed. En­niskerry did to their credit rally late on and scored two late goals but by then it was too late.

The 1st team had a great 3-2 win af­ter ex­tra time at home to Rock Celtic in the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup. John Hef­fer­nan scored from the penalty spot to give New­town an early lead, but the vis­i­tors re­stored par­ity early in the sec­ond half.

With what seemed to be the fi­nal kick of the game and af­ter ex­ert­ing ex­treme pres­sure on the home team’s goal the away team scored their sec­ond goal and what seemed to be the win­ner. New­town made one more foray into the op­pos­ing half and af­ter a good run and cross from Dessie Wa­ters, P J Dowl­ing struck a rasper to the net to force ex­tra time.

In the first pe­riod of ex­tra time the all im­por­tant win­ner ar­rived when a long ball out of de­fence found Dessie Wa­ters who out­paced the Rock cen­tre half to slot home. The sec­ond pe­riod saw chances for both teams but New­town won out to ad­vance to the next round.

Bad day at the coal­face for our sec­ond team who were beaten 8-2 away to league leaders St. Peters. Their goals came from An­thony Duffy and Terry Mur­phy.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week­end­ing Sun­day 12th Oc­to­ber; 1st Team Away to Ev­er­green FC. KO Sun­day 11.30 a.m.; 2nd Team Home to Rath­new KO Sun­day 2.30 p.m.; Youths are idle due to County Youths tri­als. . (Fix­ture are sub­ject to change).


Only three teams from the club saw action last week­end and we recorded 2 wins and one de­feat. The Un­der 9’s grabbed a 1- nil win at home to Wolfe Tone to keep their per­fect home record go­ing. A goal from Michael Cogh­lan sealed the three points in a good team dis­play.

If you wanted goals, then Rath­drum was the place to be as our 10’s trav­elled to take on Avon­more and where the score fin­ished 7-5 to the New­town team. Miss­ing 5 play­ers due to in­jury and ill­ness New­town found them­selves 5-3 down with 10 min­utes re­main­ing but they stormed into the lead for the first time in the match with 4 late goals.

Scor­ers were Dil­lon Carthy with 4, and sin­gles for Hol­lie Mur­phy, So­phie Gal­lagher & Ryan Clarke. An­other team strug­gling with in­juries are the 16’s and it showed as they went down 5-0 at home to Grey­stones. Play­ers who starred were, Jamie Shortt & Stephen Mo­ran.
