NEW­TOWN JU­NIORS FC

Our teams are wind­ing down at the mo­ment and if there still play­ing its be­cause they are in­volved in the hand­ing out of hon­ours at the end of the sea­son. Two mas­sive games were played in the past week.

Firstly our un­der-12s headed to Kil­coole on Thurs­day evening to try and add the Shield to the League and Cup they had al­ready won. Their op­po­nents were Round­wood and for the next 90 min­utes both teams served up a feast of foot­ball for the watch­ing spec­ta­tors. Af­ter ex­tra time the game fin­ished 3-3 with all the goals scored in a pul­sat­ing first half. New­town’s goals came from Bobby Dowling, Fionn O’Reilly (pen) and Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan.

In the sec­ond half and ET both de­fences were on top. It was into penal­ties we went and Round­wood se­cured the tro­phy af­ter they scored three of their first four penal­ties while un­for­tu­nately for New­town they missed three of their five spot kicks. Con­grat­u­la­tions go to Round­wood on their win as there is never more than a kick of a ball be­tween the two teams. It was hard luck to our team on the night but they had a fan­tas­tic sea­son so well to them and their man­age­ment and all their sup­port­ers.

Our un­der-11s trav­elled to Rath­drum to take on St Anthony’s on Saturday morn­ing for the Di­vi­sion one league ti­tle. This was a tight af­fair through­out and it was Anto’s who struck first with a goal halfway through the first half. New­town had their chances as well but found the Kil­coole keeper in ex­cel­lent form.

In the sec­ond half New­town came fly­ing out of the traps and were finding in­roads into the Kil­coole de­fence and it was no sur­prise that they equalised when Martin Kelly smashed the ball to the net af­ter a move in­volv­ing Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan and Ma­son Melia. Min­utes later the same trio were in­volved in the goal that put New­town ahead when af­ter shots by Melia and Hef­fer­nan were blocked Kelly tapped to the net for his sec­ond of the match. Five min­utes later Melia scored the goal his dis­play de­served and it was a re­ward for his per­se­ver­ance af­ter his ini­tial shot was blocked. Anto’s came back at New­town strongly but New­town de­fended well as a team and keeper Ryan Clarke pulled off a cou­ple of ex­cel­lent saves. Anto’s scored a con­so­la­tion goal right on full time but the ti­tle de­servedly heads back to New­town af­ter an un­beaten sea­son.

Well done to the squad that in­cluded Ryan Clarke, Shane Syn­nott, Mar­cel Ko­ca­jda, Martin Kelly, Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan, Grace Mur­phy, Ma­son Melia, Jack Coughlan, Bog­dan Rusu, Oran Lane and Ryan McMahon. Also well done to the man­age­ment duo of Liam McCann and Mick Lane and many thanks to all the sup­port on the day and through­out the sea­son.

The team have one and hope­fully two im­por­tant matches left in their sea­son and the first is this com­ing Tues­day when they travel to Rath­new to take on Wick­low Rovers ‘A’ in a play off for the right to meet St Anthony’s in the Shield fi­nal next week­end. Kick off on Tues­day night is 7 p.m. Good luck every­body. Both our De­vel­op­ment Squad and Academy teams played games dur­ing the week against Wolfe Tone and Wick­low Rovers and I am glad to re­port that loads of goals and saves were on view. We send our best wishes to the Wick­low Rovers player who suf­fered a head in­jury on Wed­nes­day evening and we are glad to re­port the player is ok and back home.

Fix­tures for the com­ing week: un­der-11s vs Wick­low Rovers ‘A’ ko at 7 p.m. on Tues­day, June 14, in Rath­new (fix­tures and kick-off times are sub­ject to change)
