The junior A footballers played their first game in this years championship against St. Patricks in Ned Hall Park, Clonmel, on last Saturday evening, May 12th. A very strong wind blowing straight down the field created the proverbial game of two halves. Newcastle played with the wind in the first half and opened up a lead of 3-5 to 0-3 at half time, with the goals scored by Brian Sweeney (2) and Brian Hyland. St. Patricks came back into the game in the second half but another goal from Brian Sweeney sealed the result. Final score was Newcastle 4-6, St. Patricks 1-12. Team was Darren Goonan, James Fitzpatrick, Tomás O’Dwyer, Emmet Prendergast, Caoimhín McGrath, Shane Hickey, Daniel Kennedy, Cormac O’Flynn, Brian Hyland (1-0), Alan Sweeney, Conor Grant (0-2), Barry Hickey, Andrew Fitzpatrick (0-2), Brian Sweeney (3-2), Eanna O’Flynn. Subs were Niall Morrissey for James Fitzpatrick, Diarmuid Devaney for Eanna O’Flynn and Anthony Condon for Andrew Fitzpatrick.
