JU­NIORS NEWS

Well it was Christ­mas joy this week for our 8A’s and 11’s but un­for­tu­nately Christ­mas woe for the 10’s, 12’s and 13’s.

The 8’s won a tough en­counter away to Grey­stones on a 2-1 score­line thanks to goals from Conor O’Toole-Od­lum and Cian Walsh.

The 11’s de­feated Wick­low Rovers 1nil at home in very blus­tery con­di­tions. Robert Greenan scored the all im­por­tant win­ner just be­fore half time and Ross Davis, Dar­ren Walsh and Sean Carthy were the best play­ers on the day.

The 10’s lost 6-1 at home to un­der 10 premier cham­pi­ons Ark­low Town in a game that sadly some of our play­ers never per­formed. So­phie Gal­lagher, Ryan Clarke and Sean Carthy all tried hard and Hol­lie Mur­phy scored the New­town con­so­la­tion goal.

The 12’s lost 4-1 at home to Ark­low united in a game where if our guys had taken their chances, the score­line would have been a lot closer. Keith Dal- ton scored the New­town goal af­ter good work from Robert Gre­gory. Best on the day were Chantelle Owens, Jodie Ryan, Mark O’Brien and Dar­ragh Carthy.

Bad day at the of­fice for the 13’s as they went down 5-nil away to Ard­more Rovers. That’s it for 2008 a year full of highs and lows, and lots and lots of good mem­o­ries and let’s hope for more of the same in 2009.

All leagues will recom­mence on the week­end of 10th/11th Jan­uary 2009. In­door train­ing will start back up from Mon­day 5th Jan­uary and the fol­low­ing are a re­minder of all times for our teams:

BOWL­ING

New­town bowl­ing club are tak­ing a well earned break for Christ­mas af­ter a very busy sea­son. The B team had seven matches each and the A team played four matches.

The in-house league was also on the go, and every­one was swot­ting up for the quiz. The har­ri­ers were the win­ners with the fal­cons just three points be­hind. Spouses and part­ners were in­vited to take part.

There was one cookoo in the nest Pat Smith, Mar­garet’s hus­band, and there were three swans, Mary Bren­dan’s wife and Sharon Jim Clarke’s wife and Linda Walsh, Noel’s wife.

The turkey shoot went well from over twenty play­ers tak­ing part the two in the fi­nal were K.Led­widge and John Red­mond. Af­ter seven ends K. Led­widge won (there were no ac­tual tur­keys harmed in this turkey shoot).

The Christ­mas din­ner in Capo’s restau­rant was well han­dled and it was a very en­joy­able night, so many thanks to the staff there.

The club are back again on Mon­day 5th Jan­uary, with the first match on the 12th Jan­uary.

A very happy Christ­mas and new year to all clubs in the league, and mem­bers of New­town. For any in­for­ma­tion phone Jim at 2810236.
