Willowbank 6 – 4 Newry U19s

by Denis McGuinness, Newry U19 Manager

Newry could have been 4-1 up going into the break but unfortunately we couldn’t put the final finish together and we went in 1-0 behind.

Two minutes after the break Willowbank had the ball in the net which was the start of a nine goal second half. Newry left it late to contribute waiting until were where 4-0 down before changes where made and Shealan Fegan broke the duck. The next 15-20 mins was all Newry and we deservedly levelled the match after a double from Azeez and a goal from new signing Somy John.

Unfortunately that wasn’t the end of the drama as soon after we were reduced to ten men. This changed the momentum of the game and they scored two late goals to collect all three points.

We are still working hard to get this new look squad jelled which we know will take time but slowly we are making great progress and know the results won’t be long coming.
