Newport, who are on a fine run of form, will be looking to carry this momentum into next Sunday’s round 5 (last 64) game in the FAI Junior Cup, when they make the journey out to West Limerick to take on Carrig Celtic of the Limerick Desmond League. Newport have beaten Corbally (5-0), Moyross (4-2) & Prospect Priory (2-1) to get to the out of town stage of the competition. Carrig are currently in the bottom half of the Desmond League’s Premier Division but they have beaten Rineanna (6-0), Kilcornan (4-3) & Killarney Celtic (3-2) to make it to this stage of the competition, so they are going to be very tough opposition and with home advantage, will probably be the bookies’ favourites to advance to the next round. So far, all Carrig’s games have been at home and with them once again having the comfort of a home draw, Newport can expect to face a real battle if they want to make it to the last 32 for the second season running. Kick-off in Carrigkerry is at 2pm and with Carrig only being an hour’s drive away, we hope to see a large Newport crowd make the journey to support the lads.
