Plenty of ac­tion last week­end but a mixed bag in re­gards of re­sults. The un­der-8s trav­elled to Ark­low to take on Town and both teams played out a very close series of games. Al­bie Chance and David McCor­mack scored the goals for New­town.

The un­der-9’s hosted near neigh­bours St An­thony’s and both teams played out a series of games full of ex­cit­ing foot­ball. Star play­ers on the day for New­town were Eva Carey, Wil­liam Valentine and birth­day boy Luke Tur­ley, who helped him­self to a five-minute hat trick in the last game. Other play­ers who found the net in­cluded Ai­dan Hef­fer­nan, Ryan Collins and Pat Carey.

The un­der-10s trav­elled to play Wick­low Town and lost out by the odd goal in five. De­spite been down four play­ers ow­ing to ill­ness the play­ers on duty put in a good shift. Cor­mac Chance and Jake Robert­son scored the New­town goals.

The un­der-11s had a fruitful trip to Carnew as they came home with the win in a 9-goal thriller win­ning 5-4. Mason Melia (2), Ryan McMahon (2) and Eoghan Fox. Best play­ers on the day were Iggy Szpilka and Paudie Gam­mell.

Not a good day at the of­fice for the un­der-13s as they went down 4-1 at home to Ark­low Celtic. Apart from the open­ing ex­changes and the last five min­utes Ark­low dom­i­nated pro­ceed­ings. Fionn O’Reilly scored the New­town goal with a fine ef­fort late on.

The 15’s trav­elled to Bray to take on Wolfe Tone and de­spite scor­ing the first and last goal of the game Wolfe Tone scored three times to take all the points in a 3-2 win. New­town’s goals came from Steven Cough­lan and a Ryan Smil­lie penalty.
