Best of luck to Port’s captain Ryan Oatley

Newport’s captain Ryan Oatley has left the club having transferred to Blackfield & Langley FC.

Ryan completed his move today (30th) to Blackfield & Langley who currently sit second in the Sydenhams Wessex Football League Premier Division.

Ryan has been a key player for Newport over the years having come through from Newport’s youth section into the senior squad. The outstanding leader and strong defender will be missed within the team as they travel to Verwood Town FC on Saturday 1st Oct.

Andy Sampson will now have to appoint a new captain, who might Andy’s choice be to continue leading The Port for the rest of the season?

Newport IW FC would like to thank Ryan for all his hard work, leadership and commitment to the club. We wish him well and the best of luck at Blackfield & Langley FC.



Moneyfields Match Report

The top teams seems to get all the luck…………….

Newport were held to a 2-2 draw against league leaders Moneyfields as the Portsmouth side escaped with a 98th minute equaliser.

Moneyfields made the better start and Connor Bailey should have done better but sliced his shot over the bar from a Hutchings cross on 13 minutes.

The visitors went closer on 23 minutes but Nathan Paxton’s header from a free kick crashed against the bar. Moneyfields were having much the better of things and Gary Streeter was called upon to make several smart saves.

On 33 minutes Mark Taylor received a yellow card for scything down Nathan Paxton. Within 2 minutes Moneyfields had taken the lead when Gary Austin broke clear , rounded Gary Streeter and managed to squeeze the ball between two defenders who had got back on the line.

Newport had their best chance just before half time when a Younie cross was deflected just out of the reach of Darren Powell and went out for a corner.

HALF TIME Newport 0 Moneyfields 1

Newport started much brighter in the second half and soon had Moneyfields on the back foot.

On 51 minutes the Port equalised direct from a Josh Younie free kick just outside the box, the ball cannoning in off the post. Gary Streeter was soon back in action pulling off two smart saved in quick succession.

The Port soon pressed forward again and for a spell were camped around the Moneyfields area. It was only a matter of time before they conceded a foul and on 76 minutes the referee awarded Newport a penalty. Connor Kelly took the spot kick, scoring even though keeper Short got a hand to it.

The game turned scrappy and a succession of yellow cards were issued. On 89 minutes Steve Hutchings was shown a second yellow and consequently a red. Two minutes later Mark Taylor was shown a second yellow and a red and it was 10 a side.

Injury time seemed to draw on and on and on 98 minutes a shot from the edge of the box evaded Gary Streeter and allowed Moneyfields to escape with a point.

Attendance 78.

Newport: Streeter, West, Oatley, Pearce, McDonough, Taylor, Powell, Bennett, Younie, Kelly, Butcher. Subs: Wade, K Sainsbury, Burton, A Sainsbury, Newbold.

Moneyfields: Short, Martin, Tigwell, Pitman, Shepherd, Hayes, Bailey, Raine, Austin, Hutchings, Paxton. Subs: Harris, Harding, Bentock, Spurway, Johnson.

Brougham leaves The Port for Vic’s

Assistant 1st team manager Steve Brougham has left Newport IW FC at the conclusion of the game on Tuesday evening (27th) against Moneyfields.

Steve Brougham has been part of the club for many years and was the 1st team manager of Newport prior to Andy Sampson being appointed.

Steve will take his managerial career to its next chapter having been appointed as the 1st team manager for East Cowes Victoria AFC replacing Luke Kerr.

East Cowes Vic’s currently sit bottom of the Sydenhams Wessex Football League Division One.

Newport IW FC would like to thank Steve for all his commitment, hard work and support he has given to the club over the years. We wish him all the best in his new managerial role.
