Arran saves the day

Newport boys played their socks off this evening in the annual Rushmoor 5 a side tournament at Aldershot Garrison.

The night began well with a fantastic last gasp goal by Arran to draw 3-3 draw against the eventual winners South Farnborough. However a defeat to the other finalists Cherrywood and a narrow 2-3 defeat to St Bernadette's put paid to their dreams of a semi final play off.

To their credit the boys weren't disheartened and in their final game against St Peters played really well to earn a 2-0 victory to finish off the evening on a high note.

All the boys played well and showed great enthusiasm
. Getting used to a ball rebounding off the wall took some getting used to!
Charlie did brilliantly considering he has only just started to play football and kept a clean sheet first time in goal whilst Arran D scored three goals and Aaron Y blasted in his first ever goal for the school..........You can tell Lewis about that one Aaron!
Jack Marlor earned MoM award from his team mates as he stuck to his task really well in defence.

Some of the B boys will have opportunities to play next week and later in the year.
Well done boys.
