Newry City Wanderers end season on a high

Newry U-18s traveled to Crewe for their final game of the season and with nothing but pride to play for anyone would have predicted a friendly type game but Crewe’s very physical approach made it very unsavory at times, though Newry proved as they have all season that they could stand up to a challenge.

Newry took the lead after great work by Duke and Cunningham which resulted in Lenaghan hooking the ball over his head and into the back of the net. Daniel Rowney produced a couple of great saves to keep Newry ahead and indeed extended their lead when Duke produced one of his Rory Delap throws, which Steven Annett met with a glancing header into the top corner.

The second half started much the same as the first with Newry on the front foot. Edgar was in great form in midfield and Cunningham was a handful upfront and soon the third goal came after terrific work by Edgar and Redpath down the right. Redpath’s ball found Magill whose knock down allowed Dillon to hit a great strike into the bottom corner.

Crewe managed to pull a couple of goals back late on but Newry stood strong to claim a well deserved victory.

Final score Crewe 2-3 Newry.

The management staff of Gary Redpath, Ryan McConville and Kevin D’Arcy would like to thank all of the players for their committment and attitude throughout the season. Although there was no silverware, it was terrific for the club to see so many of the U-18s make the step up to reserve team football throughout the season. Development is the main criteria of their players and to produce players for the future of Newry City FC, and all of the lads should feel proud of their efforts this year.

Newry City: Rowney, Redpath, S.Annett, J.Annett, Doak, Edgar, D’Arcy, Quinn, Cunningham, Lenaghan, Duke. Sub: Dillon.
Newry Times Man of the Match: Steven Annett.
