The Junior A side were the only junior side in action over the weekend and they got 2020 off to a flying start as they eased into the second round of the Lawson Cup with an emphatic 13-0 win over Abbey Rovers of Div 2B. Realistically, the game was over after 30 minutes as Newport scored 5 times in the opening half hour and led 8-0 at half-time. Credit is due to Abbey Rovers for keeping plugging away but the gulf between the sides was obvious and Newport scored another 5 goals in the second half to end up as 13-0 winners. Brian ‘Clemy’ O’Sullivan was the scorer-in-chief with 5 goals, to take his personal tally for the season to 20 and he’s also now scored in the last 6 games. The other scorers were Mattie Connolly (2), Elliott Slattery, Ryan Mawdsley, James Lynch, Kev Connolly, Darragh Carroll & Paul Ryan. Newport will now be at home to Div 2B side Northside in round 2 after they beat Cappamore 3-2. The winners of this game will be at home to Premier side, Regional Utd, in round 3.
