NEW­TOWN UNITED FC

The first team were our only side in action last week­end as they trav­elled to take on Bal­doyle United in the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup. The trip proved fruit­less how­ever as they went down to the Dublin out­fit on a 6-1 score­line. Terry Mur­phy scored the New­town con­so­la­tion.

JU­NIORS NEWS

If it’s not rain it’s his good friend Mr. Frost that tries to play havoc with the fix­tures, but thank­fully all six games in­volv­ing our teams were played re­sult­ing in 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 de­feats.

Our 8A team re­main un­beaten this sea­son much to the de­light of co-man­agers Msrs. Magee and Turner af­ter a hard fought 2-nil win at home to Ark­low Town. Cian Walsh & Jack Doyle scored the goals in a good team dis­play.

The 8B’s got back to winning ways with a 4-2 away win over Ash­ford Rovers. Daniel Testa notched three and Ti­mothy Hamil­ton scored for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive week. Best for the B’s were Testa, Ben Mo­ran and Ryan Smillie.

The 9’s com­pleted their league pro­gramme with a nar­row 1-nil de­feat away to Wolfe Tone. Best for the 9’s were Aaron Toner, Sean Gre­gory & Adam Hef­fer­nan.

The 10’s drew 1-all away to Ard­more Rovers in a game they de­served to win. Ryan Tay­lor put New­town in front when he blasted to the net from 10 yards af­ter Ryan Clarke’s shot had been blocked.

The Ard­more equaliser had a touch of con­tro­versy about it as goalie Sean Carthy felt the ball was kicked from his hands be­fore been scored. They say th­ese de­ci­sions even them­selves up over the course of a sea­son, let’s hope so!

Best for the 10’s were Clarke, Tay­lor, Ryan Hef­fer­nan and Dil­lon Carthy in one of the team’s best dis­plays this sea­son so far.

Any hope the 11’s had of league hon­ours this sea­son ended dis­ap­point­edly af­ter a 3-2 home de­feat to Grey­stones. Late goals by Keith Dal­ton & Ross Davis put a gloss on the fi­nal re­sult in an­other poor dis­play.

At last the Un­der 13’s are of the mark af­ter an ex­cit­ing 4-3 home win over Ard­more Rovers. Stu­art Syn­nott scored a hat trick while new sign­ing Mark Flood also found the net. Best were Syn­nott, Steven Davis and Hughie McDaid.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week end­ing Sat. 6th/Sun. 7th De­cem­ber: Un­der 8a’s Away to Ark­low Town ‘B’ KO Satur­day 12 noon. Un­der 8b’s - No Fix­ture. Un­der 9’s, 10’s & 12’s -Fix­tures to be Con­firmed. Uun­der 11’s Away to Grey­stones ‘A’ KO TBC. Un­der 13’s Home to Wolfe Tone ‘A’ KO TBC. (Fix­ture & times are sub­ject to Change).
