NEWTOWN UNITED FC
With the second team’s game away to Arklow United cancelled due to a frozen pitch and the Youths receiving a walkover from Greystones, only the 1st team saw action.
They travelled to Ashford in the league and came away with all three points after a 5-3 victory. Five players ended up on the score sheet namely, Neilie Martin, Barry Davis, Dean Odlum, Ciaran McGurl, and John Heffernan.
Remarkably this was only Newtown’s second league game of the season due to their cup exploits this season, so even at this stage a fixture pile up is on the cards!
The following are the fixtures for the week ending Sat. 13th/Sun.14th December: 1st Team Away to Wicklow Town ‘A’ KO Sunday at 2 p.m.; 2nd Team & Youths Fixture to be confirmed.
Everyone at Newtown United send their best wishes for a speedy recovery to former player/ committee member Davie Odlum who is recuperating in hospital after a recent operation. Hope to see you out and about very soon Davie from all your friends in Newtown.
When Mr. Frost doesn’t get you the first time, he makes sure he will on the second occasion and this was the reason behind the cancellation of both the Under 11’s and Under 12’s games last weekend as bone hard pitches put paid to any on-field action.
However the 13’s and 8A’s both saw action last Saturday. The 8’s failed to win for the first time this season as they had to settle for a 2-all draw away to Arklow Town. Jack Doyle and Cian Walsh scored the goals and maintained their team’s unbeaten start to the season.
The old saying ‘you wait for a bus for ages and then two arrive at the same time’ applies to the Under 13’s who made it two wins on the bounce with an emphatic 7-2 win over Wolfe Tone. Luke Martin led the way with a double hat-trick while Stuart Synnott added the other goal. Best on the day for the 13’s were, Mark Flood, Steven Davis and Hughie McDaid.
The following are the fixtures for the weekending Sat. 13th/Sun. 14th December: Under 8A’s, 8B’s & 9’s Fixtures to be confirmed. Under 10’s Home to Greystones ‘A’ KO T.B.C. Under 11’s Away to Greystones ‘A’ KO T.B.C. Under 12’s Home to Greystones KO Saturday at 12.30 p.m. Under 13’s Home to Arklow Town ‘A’ KO Saturday at 11 a.m. (Fixtures & times are subject to change)
