New­town United would like to thank Mario’s Take­away on the main street for spon­sor­ing our youth team a new set of jer­seys.


The weather was the win­ner again last week­end with wind, heavy rain and snow the or­der of the day. All our team’s matches fell foul of the el­e­ments apart from the Un­der 12’s league game away to Grey­stones.

This game went ahead thanks to the home sides all weather pitch and the 12’s came away with the three points af­ter an em­phatic 7-nil victory. Mark O’Brien score three goals for the sec­ond game in a row to show that brother ‘Nelly’ isn’t the only O’Brien who knows where the goal is.

The ever-im­prov­ing Dar­ragh Carthy added two goals and there were ex­cel­lent fin­ishes by Sean Dease & Ly­dia Sin­nott-El­liott to com­plete the goal tally. In a good team dis­play, Chantelle Owens, Steven Kennedy and Ciaran Daly were among the play­ers to shine.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week/end­ing Sat.7th/Sun.8th Feb: U8A’s Away to Wick­low Rovers ‘A’ KO Sun­day at 10 a.m. U-8B’s Away to St Pa­tricks ‘A’ KO Sun­day at 11 a.m. U8C’s Home to St An­tho­nys ‘C’ KO Satur­day at 11 a.m. U-9’s Away to Wickow Town KO Sun­day at 11 a.m. U-10’s Home to Ark­low Town H‘B’ KO Satur­day at 12 noon.

On the week­end of Sat. 14th/ Sun. 15th Feb. our teams are in­volved in cup action and all our teams have been handed tough as­sign­ments. Our 9’s & 11’s travel to take on their coun­ter­parts in Grey­stones while our 10’s are at home to Premier Divi­sion cham­pi­ons Ark­low Town ‘A’. Both the 12’s and 13’s re­ceived byes to the sec­ond round of their re­spec­tive cup com­pe­ti­tions. Good luck to all our teams in the cup!

Just a note to all par­ents & play­ers that out­stand­ing mem­ber­ship fees are due and can be paid to their re­spec­tive team man­ager or any com­mit­tee mem­ber.


Just the one player from the club cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day this week and that’s Bryan Kennedy from the 12’s/13’s.

No truth in the ru­mour that dad PJ (Liver­pool fan) was seen han­dling the new Man United kit as one of Bryan’s presents. Happy birth­day Bryan from every­one at New­town Ju­niors FC.
