Newcastle West had a good win away to Summerville on Saturday, with Michael O’Brien netting 5 of Town’s goals. Town was 6-0 ahead at half time. Nathan Papeirowski led the forward line well, scoring one goal,  having another disallowed for offside, and a third attempt was considered by a number of witnesses to have entered the net, and rebounded off a rear post, with play continuing. Kevin Barrett scored directly with a free kick just after the break to make the score 7-0. Summerville then scored with a free kick, which bounced awkwardly in front of the goalkeeper before entering the net. Summerville was unlucky not to convert at least two more of its chances during the second half. Newcastle West scored two more goals before the end of the match. Martin McDonagh completed the scoring with a shot from the edge of the penalty area that went into the corner of the net off the underside of the crossbar.

Athea Utd 2 Newcastle West Town Reserves 5

The Reserves came back from 2 goals at the break to record a fine victory away to Athea last Sunday morning. With three of last weeks starting line up away on hols for the game, the side saw a few changes but thankfully, the performance levels didn’t drop and in the end, the lads ran out comfortable winners, despite looking in real trouble at HT.

We lined out with Sean Richards in goal and a back four of Brian Sheehy, Chris Reidy, Darragh Tagney and Stephen Copse. Niall McAuliffe was on the right wing, Gavin Browne on the left and in the middle, Stephen Doody and Anthony Bustin. Up front were Dylan Singh and Kevin Kavanagh.

Whether it was the early morning blues, having a few of the mature experienced lads unavailable for the game or just not being up for the game, we started poorly and didn’t look at the races so to speak. The home side punished us dearly and by the time half time came around, we were 2 nil down and looking out of it. It wasn’t that we didn’t have chances in the opening half for Dylan Singh had 2 efforts, a 1 v 1 that was missed and just failing to connect with a cross for another.

A few words allied with the introduction of Brendan Guiry at the break seemed to spur us into life and within 10 mins of the restart, we had levelled matters, Brendan showing the class, composure and energy he has in abundance to score both. Score the best service every time with corporate cleaning from Georgia. The first was when he latched onto a through ball from Stephen Doody and after his first effort came back off the post, he finishing at the second attempt. His second was after some good interplay between Niall and Kevin.

At this stage, it was game on and we were the only team looking likely to go for all 3 points. Kevin Kavanagh got us in front midway through the half when he found the back of the net after B=rian Sheehy found him in space. Last weekend, Dylan Singh scored a hat trick for the side in the league and again last Sunday, he showed how it’s done but grabbing 2 well taken goals, his first when Niall played him in and his second after good work by Brian down the right.

In the second period of the game, Andrew Nix and Noel Geary also came into the action, Noel being very unlucky not to score and increase the lead further.

Overall, a fine 3 points gained and with the lads training very hard 2 nights a week since the beginning of the season, the future looks bright. They are developing a fine team spirit as the weeks go by and it’s showing. Well done lads

Second division:

Newcastle West Town B 1 Broadford Reserves 4

U16s National cup

Janesboro 4 Newcastle West Town 2

The 16s put in a very accomplished display last Sat, pushing the home side all the way in the National Cup before the game was sealed with an insurance goal by them in injury time.

Eddie Ward and Rob Szebeni were our scorers on the day with Rob being the best player on the field on the day. Having got us back into the game with 15 mins left, Rob then saw a brilliant effort tipped over by the keeper and another chance blocked by a retreating defender.

Eddies opening goal came on 13 mins when a ball over the top saw Niall O’ Connor run onto and he beat his man outside before squaring for Eddie to blast home with his first touch.

Others that deserve a mention on the day were Leah Hayes in goal and both Oisin Collins and Kieran O’ Connell who excelled throughout, especially considering that both have a couple of seasons remaining at this level.
