Newry City AFC U14s have qualified for the final of Lisburn Shield which will be played on 29 December after beating East Coast FC whom Newry manager Jim Murphy described as a very strong well drilled team.
It was an exciting match from start to finish although goals were minimal. East Coast opened the scoring before Newrys Caolan McParland equalised in the second half to leave the score 1-1 which carried into extra time. The game was then to be decided on penalties where Newry ran out 4-3 winners.
This is a fantastic achievement for a team only formed in August. The team are open to new players attending training (2005s only). Please contact Jim Murphy 14s Manager 07927674391
