All our teams are cur­rently on a short mid-sea­son break. All SSG, from un­der-eight through to un­der-11s, will re­turn with fix­tures on the week­end of Au­gust 10/11 2019. These age groups will all be re­graded for when we re­turn. The league will also look at run­ning a cup com­pe­ti­tion for un­der-11s and maybe some­thing sim­i­lar for the un­der-10s. Un­der-12s are pro­vi­sion­ally back on the week­end of July 27/28, while the un­der-13s will be back on the week­end of July 27/28 (fur­ther de­tails as we get them).

The New­town­moun­tkennedy Area are host­ing a Com­mu­nity Fun Day for Sun­day, Au­gust 18, where all clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the area are in­vited to take part with some form of ac­tiv­ity or event. We, as a club, will be or­gan­is­ing some­thing that will in­volve all the kids of the area. The Fun Day will run from 1 p.m. till 5 p.m. in the Com­mu­nity Grounds and there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one. As we are hop­ing to have a Mini World cup com­pe­ti­tion run­ning around this time, it is hoped that all fi­nals will take place as part of the Fun Day (more de­tails next week).

We only have one player from the club cel­e­brat­ing their birth­day in the com­ing week and he is Al­bie Chance from the un­der-10s. Happy birth­day Al­bie from ev­ery­one at New­town Ju­niors F.C and have a great day. On a sad­der note the club ex­tends their sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­ily and friends of Derek Rein­hardt from Newcastle, who sadly passed away last week. May he rest in peace.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Sarah Nolan and Ro­nan Keddy on their re­cent wed­ding. Sarah has been a long-serv­ing mem­ber of our ladies’ team but both bride and groom are teach­ers in our lo­cal New­town pri­mary school. Ev­ery­one in the club would like to wish you both many years of health and hap­pi­ness.

New­town ladies’ team sailed past Bray Em­mets by a score line of 4-14 to 1-3 last Mon­day. The ladies had their first out­ing with their new gear. Again kindly do­nated by @ab­so­lute­forty­seven who have been a mas­sive sup­porter of our club the past couple of years.

New­town se­niors’ first cham­pi­onship match against Rath­new was played in great con­di­tions last Tues­day, New­town were lead­ing by three points at half time and could have eas­ily come away with a shock re­sult how­ever Rath­new’s ex­pe­ri­ence held up in the end. Rath­new ran out four point win­ners in the end. Next up is Tinahely this Satur­day in Aughrim at 5 p.m. It was fan­tas­tic to see such a great New­town crowd at the Rath­new game and the team are hope­ful for the same crowd for the next game.

Well done to our un­der-sev­ens and un­der-nines in Kilmac Go Games last week. It was great to see a couple of new faces join the un­der-sev­ens as Lucy and Evan made the jump up from our nurs­ery pro­gramme to join Ali, Ruby, Darcy, Jake and Peter. Our un­der-nines are con­tin­u­ously de­vel­op­ing and grow­ing in num­bers. There are 19 in the panel now with Ben play­ing his first match since break­ing his leg and new­com­ers Matthew and Shane join­ing. Well done to all teams tak­ing part in Ash­ford. It was great to see Fer­gal Og there and hosts Kilmac, es­pe­cially for the ice pops af­ter. Next blitz is in New­town this com­ing Fri­day, July 19,

The lotto rolled over again and now sits at €3,400. Num­bers drawn were 01, 08, 25 and 27. One per­son took away €200 by match­ing three num­bers. Please buy a ticket and help sup­port the club.
