Plenty of footie played last week­end from Fri­day evening right up till Sun­day morn­ing. While we basked in lovely sun­shine on Satur­day, Sun­day was a dif­fer­ent story as it turned out to be a right mis­er­able day.

The ac­tion started on Fri­day evening when the 13’s (kindly spon­sored by Adrian Dunne Phar­ma­cies) trav­elled to Bal­ly­man to take on En­niskerry. To say our team was slow out of the blocks would be an un­der­state­ment but they went 4-0 down be­fore they started play­ing. Iggy Szpilka and a screamer from Paudie Gam­mell put the ‘13’s back in with a shout but un­for­tu­nately we were guilty of miss­ing too many chances. En­niskerry fin­ished the scor­ing in the dy­ing min­utes with a penalty kick to leave the score at 5-2 for the home side. On the evening Keira Far­relly, Aaron Caw­ley and Gam­mell were the pick of the Newtown play­ers.

They then headed to Ash­ford on Sun­day morn­ing where they shared the points in a 10 goal thriller. It could have been all three but a bit of lazi­ness and silly mis­takes put paid to that. Max Syn­nott helped him­self to a hat trick (one a peno) and Aaron Caw­ley scored twice and they along with Pa­trick Martin were the best play­ers on the day.

Our un­der-eights put in a brave dis­play away to a very strong Ark­low United team where David and Alana Gray, Rian Martin and John Paul Dun­leavy all played well.

Our un­der-nines edged out Ash­ford away with a top dis­play where among those who starred were Aaron Nolan, David McCor­mack and Conor Shevlin.

Our un­der-10s were at home to Ark­low Town White where they were plenty of goals as Ark­low pre­vailed by a cou­ple of goals. Goalscor­ers for Newtown were Leon O’Con­nor, Lu­cas Dow­dall and JV McCul­lagh-Kelly.

Our un­der-11s had a de­served vic­tory away to Ark­low United Stars, win­ning 5-3. It was al­most a re­peat of last week’s game where we went ahead, the op­po­si­tion pegged us back but on this oc­ca­sion we went again to take the points. We were three up at half time thanks to two from Ai­dan Hef­fer­nan and a goal from Mikey Syn­nott and we were in to­tal con­trol. How­ever, in the sec­ond half we got sloppy and let Ark­low back into the game and they duly lev­elled the game, How­ever, our team stepped it up and thanks to as­sists from Kacey Kelly and Daniel Eager, William Valen­tine notched two goals and we took all the points. On the day it was a good all round team dis­play. Our 12’s had no game. Our ever pop­u­lar De­vel­op­ment Squad will re­turn on Satur­day, Septem­ber 28 (10.11 a.m.) af­ter the sum­mer break. All boys and girls from five to seven years are very wel­come to at­tend and can con­tact any coach or com­mit­tee mem­ber for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

Also we had planned to host a Soc­cer Sis­ters pro­gramme for girls but with the long evenings start­ing to fade we may have to leave this till early in the new year. The Soc­cer Sis­ters pro­gramme con­sists of six free one hour train­ing ses­sions with fully qual­i­fied and Garda vet­ted coaches from the club. All participan­ts would also re­ceive an FAI T-shirt if they par­tic­i­pate in all six weeks. If there are any fur­ther de­vel­op­ments on this pro­gramme we will let those in­ter­ested know.

The fol­low­ing are the fixtures for the week­end Sat/Sun­day, Septem­ber 21/22: un­der-8s away to Avon­more FC ko to be con­firmed; un­der-9s at home to St An­thony’s Yel­low ko Sun­day at 10.15 a.m.; un­der-10s at home to Round­wood FC ko Satur­day at 10.15 a.m.; un­der-11s at home to Shil­le­lagh Navy ko Satur­day at 11.30 a.m.; un­der-12s at home to En­niskerry B ko Satur­day at 12.45 p.m.; un­der-13s – Fix­ture to be con­firmed (Fixtures and KO Times are sub­ject to change)

Our ever pop­u­lar fundraiser ‘Last Man Stand­ing’ will soon get its first out­ing this sea­son. The start date is the week­end of Satur­day 28th-Mon­day30th Sept. The cost is €10 per head and all money raised go to­wards the youth of the area.
