The Under 17 St Mary’s Newport Boys Soccer Team defeated St Declan’s Kilmacthomas of Waterford 3-0 to advance to the final of the Munster Junior Trophy. The match was played in the excellent Newport AFC facilities. The team performed exceptionally well and had to work extremely hard against a strong St Declan’s outfit.
On the score-sheet were Lee Park, Jay Ryan and Stephen Rochford. The team now face MICC Dunmanway of Cork in the Munster Junior trophy final after Christmas. The boys have so far gotten past Borrisokane C.C. , St Patricks C.S. Shannon and now St Declan’s Kilmacthomas to get to this stage and rightly deserve to be there for the hard work which they and their Coach and P.E. Teacher Mr. Harrington has put in to getting this far. Thanks also to Newport AFC for allowing the use of their facilities for our home matches.
