Newry U15’s have now played a number of games in their first season in the Mid Ulster U15 league. It has been a learning experience for this young team and has taken a few weeks for them to settle in.
They already have played some strong sides to date, losing 3-0 to Rathfriland, one of the league favourites in their second match. Next up was a game away to Lurgan Town which was a real learning experience for the team. Having gone 3-0 up they lost 4-3 and a few lessons were learned in keeping discipline and composure. The following week with a depleted squad they were very unlucky to lose away to Valley Rangers in Kilkeel 3-2. Last Saturday saw a different team different performance and they got back to winning ways in their first home match of the season with an 8-0 defeat against Moria. This Saturday they are at home to Coalisland at 10.30am and hope to continue with another home win.
