Football Notes;

Under 16 Football:  Newport 1.2 to 4.8 Moneygall

Under 14 Football:  Newport 4.9 Borrisokane 3.0

We played our second championship match on Tuesday night in Borriokane in perfect conditions. We started great and Daniel Egan kicked a great score after a minute. We piled on the pressure but could not find a way through the Borrisokane defence. Borrisokane broke up field and scored a goal. Newport replied with a goal and a point from Diarmuid O Riordan but Borrisokane came back again with another goal. A couple of points from Stephen Coffey and another goal from Diarmuid put Newport 2.4 to 2 goals ahead at half time. The second half started with a point from Cian Kennedy and Newport pulled away with further goals from Lee Ryan and Diarmuid O Riordan. Niall Duffy completed the scoring with a point and Newport won on a score line of 4.9 to 3 goals 

Team:  Luke Collins, Cian Merrigan, Thomas Byrnes, Callum Merrigan, Shaun Bonfield, Niall Duffy, Shane Murray, Daniel Egan, Paul Moloney, Colm O Malley, John Ryan, Stephen McCormack, Oisin Kennedy, Diarmuid O Riordan, Stephen Coffey, Dylan Kepple, Aaron Pearson, Adam Moloney, Luke Ryan, Cian Kennedy, Lee Ryan 


North U-14 Féile Peil na nÓg Final: Portroe 3-4  Newport 2.1 

We played Portroe on Saturday in the North Final. Portroe started brightly & scored a goal. They added 3 points before Newport replied with a free from Jack Ryan. At half time Portroe led by 1.3 to a point. Portroe added a goal & a point early in the second half. Newport fought back & goals by Diarmuid O'Riordan & Daniel Egan bought us back to a 1 score game. Newport then tried hard to get the equalising goal, but couldn't get past a stubborn Portroe defence. In the last few minutes Portroe broke up field & scored another goal to win, on a score line 3.4 to 2.1

Sympathies: We were saddened to learn of the death of Joe Ryan (Malachy) formerly of Ballymackeogh and Birdhill who has died in Australia. Joe played hurling and football with Newport in the 1950s, and was full forward on the team which won the county Junior Hurling title in 1957. Having emigrated during the 60s he returned in the early 70s to don the Newport colours again and played in the county senior hurling semi-final in 1973. Taking up residence in Birdhill he and his family ran the White Cockatoo (now Coopers). His sons lined out with various under-age teams until they all left for Australia in the mid1980s.To his family and friends we extend our sympathies. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam.
