There was plenty of on­field ac­tion last week­end. Only team not to play a game were the 10’s as their op­po­nent was un­able to field.

Our un­der-8s hosted Ark­low United Stripes and both teams played some very good foot­ball. On the day Eoin Led­widge scored his first ever goal while he, Tommy Ryan and Reece Kearns were among the star per­form­ers.

Our un­der-9s were sup­posed to be idle but a game was ar­ranged ver­sus Glen­cor­mac United and we thank them for ar­rang­ing the game but I have no de­tails on the match as no one from the 9’s were in touch.

Our un­der-11s were far from their best at home to Ark­low United Stars as they went down to a 2-1 de­feat. Max Roche scored the Newtown goal.

The un­der-12s won 6-2 away to Enniskerry B in the league where Cathal O’Toole scored two goals. The other goals from Cor­mac Chance, Keira Far­relly, Dayle Carthy and an OG.

The un­der-13s (Kindly spon­sored by Adrian Dunne Phar­macy) nar­rowly lost away (3-1) in the Plate to Avon­more B the team mi­nus a cou­ple of key play­ers gave it their all but the story of the game was miss­ing chances. The good thing is that the team is cre­at­ing the chances, they just need to put them away now. Max Syn­nott scored an ex­cel­lent goal for Newtown from a free kick and he along with Aaron Caw­ley, Aaron Hackett and Jamie Fitzger­ald were among those play­ers who starred.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week Satur­day/Sun­day Au­gust 31/Septem­ber 1: un­der-8s away to St An­thony’s Yel­low ko Satur­day at 10 a.m.; un­der-9s away to St Pa­trick’s ko Sun­day at 11.30 a.m.; un­der-10s away to Ark­low Town White ko to be con­firmed; un­der-11s away to Shil­le­lagh Navy ko Satur­day at 11 a.m.; un­der-12s away to Avon­more FC ko to be con­firmed; un­der-13s away to Carnew F.C.ko Satur­day to be con­firmed (Cup sec­ond Leg) (Fix­tures and KO Times are sub­ject to change)

Two play­ers from the club will cel­e­brate their birthdays in the com­ing week and they are Peter Hef­fer­nan from the Devel­op­ment Squad and Adam Doyle from the un­der-8s. Happy birth­day lads from all at Newtown Ju­niors FC.

Our ever pop­u­lar fundraiser ‘Last Man Stand­ing’ will get its first out­ing this sea­son in Septem­ber (date to be con­firmed). The cost is €10 per head and all money raised go to­wards the youth of the area.
