NEW­TOWN JU­NIORS F.C.

Only four of our sides were in ac­tion were in ac­tion last weekend and we recorded two wins and two de­feats.

The Un­der 8's trav­elled to En­niskerry and in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions they came home with a 6-3 suc­cess. Ma­son Melia led the way with a hat trick an there was also goals from Jack Cogh­lan, Padraig Gam­mell and Ryan McMa­hon. Play­ers who starred on the day were Aaron Hack­ett, Ruari O'Con­nor & Luca Sin­nott-El­liott.

The un­der 9's & 10's games in New­town fell foul of the weather but the 9's game has been re­fixed for mid­week at home to Glen­cor­mac United.

The Un­der 12's have a good spell, fol­lowed by a bad spell and then a good spell and it's the lat­ter they are in at the mo­ment as they forged an­other three points this time at home to Grey­stones 'B' in a amaz­ing game that fin­ished 5-4 to the home side. Andrew McMa­hon capped a fine in­di­vid­ual per­for­mance with 4 goals while Steven Cogh­lan scored the other goal in a good all round team dis­play.

In­juries etc have hit the 13's hard in re­cent weeks and de­spite per­for­mances been good the re­sults are not go­ing their way. This trend con­tin­ued as they went down 1-0 away to Ash­ford Rovers.

Af­ter col­lect­ing sil­ver­ware last week the girl's Un­der 16's made a bid for suc­cess in an­other when they hosted Peamount United in the semi fi­nal of the Le­in­ster cup. The team gave it their all and left it all on the pitch but ex­ited the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter a 4-0 re­verse. The fi­nal re­sult was ex­tremely harsh on our girl's as they were well in the game deep into the sec­ond half and the score at 1-0 but 2 goals in the dy­ing min­utes gave the score­line a rather one sided look.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week end­ing Satur­day/Sun­day 5th/6th April: Un­der 8's - fix­ture to be con­firmed; Un­der 9's away to En­niskerry ko to be con­firmed; Un­der 10's away to Cool­boy Rangers ko to be con­firmed; Un­der 12's - no fix­ture; Un­der 13's away to Avon­more F.C. ko to be con­firmed; U-16 Girls at home to Peamount United ko Sun­day at 11am; U-18 Girls at home to WFTA ko Sun­day at 1pm (PROV) - Le­in­ster S/F (FIX­TURES & KO TIMES ARE SUB­JECT TO CHANGE)

Two play­ers from the club cel­e­brate their birth­days in the com­ing week and they are Lu­cas Pawlak from the Un­der 8's and Alex Kelly from the Un­der 12's. Happy birth­day lads from ev­ery­one at New­town Ju­niors F.C.

On a sad­der note the club would like to ex­tend their deep­est con­do­lences to the fam­ily & friends of Pa­tri­cia McCann and Matt Wheat­ley who both sadly passed away re­cently. May they rest in peace. NEW­TOWN UNITED F.C.

The Youth team trav­elled to Grey­stones and came back with an ex­cel­lent 5-1 win to put one hand on the League Tro­phy. Goals from Nathan Davis (2), Luke Martin, Stu­art Syn­nott and Evan Mo­ran means that one point from their fi­nal game with St. Anthonys se­cures them the ti­tle.

The sec­ond team re­ceived an­other walkover this time from Fair­wood Celtic, three points which pushes them into the top four of Di­vi­sion 2. The first team's Wick­low Cup game with Rath­new was off due to an un­playable pitch.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week end­ing Satur­day/Sun­day 5th/6th April: 1st team at home to Glen­cor­mac United ko Sun­day at 11am (Bishop cup S/F) 1s team at home to St. Fer­gals ko on 9th April 6.30pm; 2nd team - fix­ture to be con­firmed; Youth team - fix­ture to be con­firmed (FIX­TURES & KO TIMES ARE SUB­JECT TO CHANGE)
