NEW­TOWN JU­NIORS

Bray People - - SPORT -

Weather con­di­tions are a lit­tle un­pre­dictable at the mo­ment and while last week­end more of our teams played, some of them played in ab­so­lutely Baltic con­di­tions.

The un­der-8s hosted Wicklow Rovers on Sun­day morn­ing and af­ter an hour’s foot­ball nei­ther side could be sep­a­rated on the score­board.

On the mark for the 8s were Ryan, Leighton, Leon, Lily, Aaron, David, Al­bie and Oisin.

Among the play­ers who starred were John Tur­ley and Lu­cas Dow­dall.

On Satur­day our un­der-9s trav­elled to Bray to take on Ard­more Rovers and af­ter a fan­tas­tic morn­ing’s foot­ball we headed home for the hot soup.

Good to meet up with a good friend of the club and for­mer New­town res­i­dent Jonathan Owens who was one of the Ard­more coaches.

His son Ryan who was only a baby the last time we seen him had a fine game on the day.

They played on Sun­day morn­ing at home to Wicklow Town and among the scor­ers for New­town were Max, Frank, Wil­liam, Mikey, Liam, Dy­lan, Ai­dan, Pat and Luke.

Among the play­ers who starred were Dar­ren Fisher and Conor Thorn­ton.

The un­der-11s suf­fered a rare loss as they went down to an 8-2 re­verse away to Avon­more in bliz­zard like con­di­tions. Ryan McMa­hon scored both New­town goals while Pa­trick Martin and Aaron Hack­ett starred for an un­der­strenght New­town team.

The un­der-13s only had the bare bones for their trip to Aughrim due to ill­ness, in­juries and a cou­ple of play­ers who have gone awol.

On the day though they lost nar­rowly on a 3-2 score­line, the 11 play­ers who played gave it their all and cer­tainly de­served some­thing for their ef­forts.

The team trailed 2-0 but su­perb goals from Laragh Davis and Ryan Clarke re­stored par­ity but Aughrim won the game with vir­tu­ally the last kick of the game.

On the day among those who starred were Re­becca Gil­lan and Shane Syn­nott.

The un­der-15s had a good run out down in Grey­stones where goals from Luke Kelly, An­drew McMa­hon and Steven Cough­lan en­sured a 3-1 win. Thanks to the Grey­stones man­ager Colm for or­gan­is­ing the game. Un­for­tu­nately the un­der-10s game away to Wicklow Rovers was off.
