The Ju­nior B team reached the County fi­nal on Satur­day last with a great win over St. Pats in the semi­fi­nal re­play in An Tochar.

This was a closely con­tested and ex­cit­ing match, and New­town led 0-07 to 0-05 at half time. New­town dom­i­nated the sec­ond half and held St. Pats score­less un­til the 20th minute. While St. Pats did stage a late rally, New­town never looked to be in any dan­ger of los­ing this match, and kept their con­cen­tra­tion go­ing roght to the fi­nal whis­tle.

The fi­nal score was 0-13 to 0-09. New­town will now face An Tochar in the fi­nal. Check fix­tures col­umn for de­tails. New­town scores came from David Healy 0-05, Dessie Wa­ters 0-03, Glen McKenna 0-02, An­thony Duffy, Roy Carthy and Terry Mur­phy 0-01 each. Well done lads.

The Golf Clas­sic takes place this Sun­day, 19th Oc­to­ber in Druids Glen Golf Club. If you haven’t al­ready signed up, it may not be too late as there are still one or two slots avail­able. Con­tact any com­mit­tee mem­ber.

NEW­TOWN UNITED FC

Only our first team saw action last week­end as they faced the daunt­ing task of trav­el­ling away in the F.A.I. Ju­nior cup to take on one of the com­pe­ti­tions favourite’s Ev­er­green F. C. from Kilkenny.

The lads on duty gave their all but had no an­swer to the op­po­si­tion’s power and ex­pe­ri­ence. Away from the pitch we must send con­grat­u­la­tions to club stal­wart Gary Kelly who cel­e­brated his 40th birth­day with fam­ily and friends in the Grey­stones golf club last Satur­day night.

A good night was had by all al­though Gary did have to cur­tail his cel­e­bra­tions as he was off with the first team to Kilkenny at 8.30 pm the next morn­ing. He did how­ever as­sure every­one that cel­e­bra­tions would re­sume as soon as he ar­rived back home. Well done Gary!

Also every­one in New­town United F.C. would like to wish good luck to the GAA Ju­nior ‘B’ team in their fi­nal on Satur­day evening against An Tochar

JU­NIORS NEWS

There were five matches down for de­ci­sion for our teams last week­end and out of th­ese games we recorded four wins and only one de­feat. Both our un­der 8 teams con­tinue to bang out the re­sults, with two more vic­to­ries achieved.

Our ‘A’ team de­feated Wick­low Town 9-2 at home. In a very good team dis­play the scor­ers were Adam Hef­fer­nan with 4, Craig McCabe notched 3 and Conor O’Toole-Od­lum scored twice. Spe­cial men­tion to New­town goal­keeper Lee Turner who made an ex­cel­lent penalty save dur­ing the game.

The ‘B’ team won at home to Avon­more by the odd goal in five. Me­lanie Clarke scored twice and Ti­mothy Hamil­ton also scored. Best for New­town were Ryan Smillie & Ben Mo­ran.

The Un­der 9’s lost a tight game away to Ark­low Town 1-nil. Best for the 9’s were Corey Sul­li­van, Dion Doyle and Conor Doyle. Good win for our Un­der 11’s at home to Ark­low Town on a 4-2 score­line. Dil­lon Carthy gave New­town the lead in the first half but the vis­i­tors edged in front 2-1 af­ter 10 min­utes of the sec­ond half.

Mid­way through the half New­town was awarded a penalty and Keith Dal­ton dis­patched the ball to the net to level the scores. Both Dal­ton and Carthy scored again to wrap up the three points.

In fair­ness the whole team played well es­pe­cially Sean Carthy, Robert Greenan & Ross Davis.

The Un­der 12’s had a nar­row 1-nil win at home to Wick­low Rovers cour­tesy of a Ciaran Do­herty goal. Best were Jamie Keddy, Ly­dia Sin­not­tEl­liott & Chantelle Owens.

Un­for­tu­nately we have had to with­draw our Un­der 16’s from the League due to in­juries and a lack of com­mit­ment from some play­ers with re­gards train­ing.

Ex­cel­lent turnout for our academy play­ers as they trav­elled to Glen­cor­mac for a prac­tise match and avery ex­cit­ing game ended 4-3 in favour of the New­town boys & girls.
