There will also be Futsal days in January and February 2019. The following are the details on the Futsal we have at present….Session/Slots will take no more than two hours.
In the 8’s and 9’s section last weekend in Aughrim our under-eights started out with a 2-0 win over Enniskerry, followed by a 5-1 reverse against St Pat’s of Avoca before ending on the wrong side of a seven goal thriller against Arklow United. Well done to all the players, Bobby Spillane, Gerry Hoban, Aaron Nolan, Nathan Donohoe, David McCormack and Rory Breslin. The under-nines drew 1-1 with Coolboy Rangers, lost 2-0 to Arklow United and won 3-0 over an All-Star team.

Our ever-popular Development Squad has started back and will continue every weekend from 10 a.m. till 11 a.m. (Indoors) and new players are always welcome. The cost is €3 per head. 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 without communicating with the coaches may have to wait till spaces in the Squad become available again. 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.
Three players from the club will celebrate a birthday around this time and they are Finn Heffernan from the Academy team, Max Synnott from the under-12s and Reece Gaynor from the under-14s. Happy birthday to all three from everyone at Newtown Juniors FC.
