A young Newry City team faced a strong Cliftonville side on Friday night. Unfortunately it was to be an unlucky Friday 13th for the Newry lads. The first half saw the locals compete extremely well with their much vaunted opponents who are fancied for the league title. A great display by keeper Jamie Greenaway meant that at the break Cliftonville lead 1-0. Straight from the resumption Newry failed to defend a crossed ball which was smashed home with much glee by the Cliftonville centre forward. Undaunted, Newry continued to attack with great work from Magill and Duke. However, Cliftonville went 3-0 up from a corner, conceded following a brilliant save from Greenaway who dived full length to tip a ball destined for the top corner around the post. Newry received a much needed boost via the head of Duke who finished a great cross from Magill and it was Duke again who nearly brought Newry right back into the game only for his drive to be brilliantly saved by the Cliftonville ‘keeper. Newry’s Friday 13th was compounded by Cliftonvilles fourth scored from another set play. This was a valiant attempt by the Newry lads against a very strong Cliftonville team. The Newry staff would like to wish Cian Feehan and Kyle Kane a speedy recovery from injuries which they sustained during the game and on a brighter note welcome the return from Glenavon of Gaelan Magill. Newry can now set their sights on the next match against the Maiden City at the Mallusk playing fields, 10:30am on the 21st January.
