Very heavy rain put paid to games in­volv­ing our Academy and un­der-eight teams. There were games how­ever. Our un­der-nines trav­elled to take on Ark­low Town and granted they found the go­ing tough but they kept plug­ging away. On the day best for New­town was Felix Geoghe­gan and Jack Bar­low.

Due to the rain the un­der-10s had to re­vert to Plan B and play their game with Ark­low Town White in­doors (Fut­sal). After a great morn­ings foot­ball among those who starred for New­town were Se­bas­tian An­ton, Ryan Collins, Pat Carey and Ai­dan Hef­fer­nan.

Our 11’s were back on song away to the WDSL Academy by com­ing out on top on a 3-1 score­line. In an ex­cel­lent team dis­play Cormac Chance scored a su­perb hat trick.

Our 12’s were away to Glen­cor­mac Utd in a rain soaked game. Iggy Szpilka scored the New­town goal while among the star per­form­ers were Han­nah Mar­tin and Jack Cough­lan.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for this week: De­vel­op­ment Squad Prac­tise ev­ery Satur­day from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. – (In­doors); Academy Team away to Round­wood FC ko to be con­firmed; un­der-eights away to Round­wood FC ko to be con­firmed; un­der-nines away to Ash­ford Rovers ko to be con­firmed; un­der-10s at home to Carnew FC ko Satur­day at 11.45 a.m.; un­der-11s – Fix­ture to be con­firmed; un­der-12s – Fix­ture to be con­firmed; un­der-14s away to Wick­low Rovers ‘B’ ko Sun­day to be con­firmed (fix­tures and ko times are sub­ject to change).

Our ever-pop­u­lar De­vel­op­ment Squad has started back and will con­tinue ev­ery week­end from 10 a.m. till 11 a.m. and new play­ers are wel­come. The cost is €3 per head. From Satur­day, Novem­ber 10, we will be in­doors with the group (same times). Due to the lack of space in the sur­rounds of the Sports Hall it may not be pos­si­ble for all par­ents to view train­ing in­side the play­ing area. Also due to the large num­bers at­tend­ing any play­ers fail­ing to at­tend for a num­ber of weeks may have to wait till spa­ces in the Squad be­come avail­able.

At the mo­ment we have a large num­ber of boys and girls at­tend­ing each week and thank­fully at the mo­ment we have the re­quired coaches needed but we wouldn’t say no to a few more vol­un­teer coaches. If you think you can give an hour or two each week please con­tact our sec­re­tary at the con­tact de­tails be­low.
