Newcastle played the first round of the Junior A football championship against St Patricks in Ned Hall Park, Clonmel on Friday night last, June 13th. Unfortunately it proved to be an unlucky Friday the 13th for Newcastle who lost on a score of 5-14 to 1-8. Newcastle played a good first half and was only trailing by 2-8 to 1-6 at half time. However, a third goal for St Patricks early in the second half proved decisive. This was the first game in the championship so hopefully there is better to come from the team. Team and scorers were; Oliver Smyth, Johnny Hallinan, Tomás O’Dwyer, Cormac O’Flynn, James Fitzpatrick, Shane Hickey, Caoimhín McGrath (0-1), Brian Hyland (0-1), Emmet Prendergast (0-1), Barry Hickey (capt), Conor Grant (1-2), Anthony Condon, Tommy Sweeney, Michael Kennedy (0-1), Andrew Fitzpatrick (0-2). Subs were James Lonergan Jnr for Johnny Hallinan, Alan Sweeney for Anthony Condon, Thomas Lonergan for Tommy Sweeney, Ciarán McCarra for Michael Kennedy and Ray Hallinan for Conor Grant.
