Newbridge weren't going down without a fight   18/02/2018

Newbridge Town Youths travelled to Dublin today to take on Frankfort FC and came home on the end of 5-3 result, which overall was harsh on the lads, when they deserved at least a draw.


The match took place on a new all-weather facility in Trinity Leisure Centre Clongriffen. In a highly competitive the NTFC lads adjusted themselves to the game when they found themselves 2-0 down inside the first 10 mins. Newbridge then started to get into the game and played some good football, and created a few chances which on another day they may have put away. As the half came to a close Town had a chance to reduce the deficit when David Smyth played in John O’Dwyer who was unable to tuck away his chance.


Town started the second half as they did the first, slow out of the blocks, and soon found themselves 5-0 down, but in fairness they dug in and played some nice football, and soon after they got on the scoresheet when, full back Liam Horan, got forward and after some good play by Leon Tsanga he got in behind the Frankfort defence and close to the end line shot across the goal keeper into the far corner to make it 5-1. Within a few minutes Town got another one back when Ben Slevin got in with a header to make it 5-2. Shortly after that Town scored again when Leon Tsang got on the scoresheet when he was in a position to force the ball over the goal-line to make it 5-3. Town created more opportunities through Leon Tsang and Ben Slevin, at the end of the game Town can feel hard done by, they deserved a draw with the chances they created. Playing well for Town were the 3 scorers Ben Slevin, Liam Horan and Leon Tsang while David Smyth, John O’Dwyer, Dylan O’Sullivan, and David O’Callaghan also put in good performances.
