NEW­TOWN UNITED FC

Only the 1st team were in action last week­end as they trav­elled to take on Wick­low Town in the first round of the Wick­low Cup.

Against a fel­low favourite for the cup put in an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance to come away with a 2-0 victory. Dessie Wa­ters and Dean Od­lum scored the all im­por­tant goals in an all round good team dis­play.

The league now closes for the Christ­mas break and will re­sume on Sun­day 11th Jan­uary 2009.

The club are hold­ing a 50/50 draw on the 26th De­cem­ber in the Mount Kennedy Inn (mu­sic on the night by The Scene).

All at New­town United would like to wish Leon McKenna (son of 1st team player Noel) a speedy re­cov­ery from his re­cent op­er­a­tion.

JU­NIORS NEWS

Three of our teams were in action last week­end and we recorded 2 wins and 1 de­feat from th­ese games.

The 8A’s won yet again thanks to a 2- 1 victory at home to Ard­more Rovers. The goalscor­ers were Jack Gal­lagher and Craig McCabe and Joseph McDon­ald de­serves the plau­dits for his per­for­mance in goal.

The Un­der 10’s lost at home 4-2 to Grey­stones and were chas­ing the game from vir­tu­ally the first minute when their op­po­nents scored. Grey­stones added a sec­ond goal just be­fore the break to give them breath­ing space as the home side were play­ing quite well and it was only their fi­nal ball which was let­ting them down. Dil­lon Carthy re­duced the ar­rears with a crack­ing shot from an acute an­gle early in the sec­ond half.

They say your at your most vul­ner­a­ble just af­ter you score and this was clearly the case as the vis­i­tors re­stored their two goal cush­ion soon af­ter. New­town scored again, this time from the penalty spot as Ryan Clarke smashed the spot kick to the net. In the very last minute Grey­stones scored again to seal the points. Best for New­town were Ryan Tay­lor and Ryan Clarke.

Our Un­der 11’s pro­duced their best dis­play of the sea­son so far af­ter a 2-nil away win over ta­ble top­pers Grey­stones thanks to goals from Jor­dan Syn­nott and Dil­lon Carthy. It would be un­fair to pick out in­di­vid­u­als on the day as all 14 play­ers who played all ex­celled on the day.

Without doubt it was per­for­mance of the week and hope­fully this will be the re­sult that turns their sea­son around. Nice to see two ex-ju­niors get on the score sheet across the wa­ter, namely Paul McShane who scored his first goal in Hull City colours away to Liver­pool at An­field and Paul Hef­fer­nan whose goal gave Don­caster Rovers the lead at Sel­hurst Park away to Crys­tal Palace.

Con­grat­u­la­tions once again to Katie Tay­lor who was named AIBA boxer of the year this week and was pre­sented with her award in Moscow.
