The Port concede four to Baffins

Newport slumped to a 4-0 home defeat against a Baffins Milton Rovers side making their first visit to St George’s Park. Newport made several changes from the side that started against AFC Bournemouth in midweek.

By mid afternoon when Newport kicked off attacking the Allotment end the morning rain had yielded to afternoon sun.

Newport created an opportunity in the first five minutes when Connor Kelly broke down the left and slipped the ball into the path of Mark Taylor but Tony Male was able to smother the ball before he had the chance to shoot.

For Baffins, Calvin Moses displayed some nimble footwork to jinx through the Newport defence but his final shot was over the bar from close range.

Baffins took the lead on 23 minutes. A cross from the right was not cleared by the Newport defence, instead the ball was set up for Joel Jackson to volley into the net from about 12 yards.

Newport had the chance to equalise on the half hour when Tony Male failed to gather a low cross and as the ball run loose, Connor Kelly who reacted quickest, could only turn the ball against the post from an acute angle, before it was scrambled clear.

Shane Cornish was the first to be booked on 36 minutes for upending Charlie Urry then shortly afterwards Calvin Moses joined him for pushing Martin McDonough.

Newport had started well but Baffins were beginning to look the more dangerous side.

Half Time Newport 0 Baffins Milton Rovers 1

Baffins started brightly and a 20 yard drive from Callum Dart was tipped over the bar by Gary Streeter who then saved a shot from point blank range by Chaz Gardner in the opening minutes of the half.

Newport made two substitutions in quick succession. Firstly Darren Powell gave way to Josh Younie then Jared Wetherick was replaced by Emerson Tattersall.

On 68 minutes a low driven free kick from about 20 yards by Aidan Sainsbury eluded everybody and narrowly missed the post as Tony Male could only stand and watch.

Baffins extended their lead on 73 minutes when a clearance struck Joel Jackson and he had time to turn and blast the ball past Gary Streeter. Two minutes later Blu Boam scored a third with a 20 yard drive from outside the penalty area. These two goals ensured Baffins secured the points as the game meandered to a conclusion.

Newport came close to scoring when the ball broke to Emerson Tattersall in the penalty area but his shot rattled the crossbar. Newport then made their final substitution when Lewis Wright came on for Mark Taylor.
The fourth goal came on 86 minutes when the ball broke to Lewis Stockford and he curled a 20 yard shot into the corner of the net.

Newport’s second half performance was clearly at a slower tempo than recent matches however a four goal victory flattered Baffins Milton Rovers.

AFC Bournemouth out class The Port

For the first time in their history Newport hosted a side from the F.A.Premier League in a competitive match, albeit Bournemouth opted to play players from their under 18 and development squads.
Illness prevented co manager Gary Streeter from participating in the match and Connor Kelly was cup tied as Newport had a much changed side for the second round of the Hants Senior Cup.

Newport kicked off attacking the Allotment end. Bournemouth created the first chance inside three minutes when Charlie Seaman fired in a curling shot from 20 yards that Andrew Payne comfortably caught.

The opening half hour was played mainly in the Newport half although the defence, aided by some good blocking tackles, was seldom troubled

Bournemouth took the lead on 34 minutes when Spike Pearce conceded a penalty and Mikael Ndjoli placed it low to Andrew Payne’s left. Newport immediately made a substitution when Keelan Walsh who picked up an injury was replaced by Alex Harmer.

Newport were reduced to ten men when Emerson Tattersall was shown a red card for a tackle from behind.

Bournemouth,s second goal came in stoppage time and the scorer was again Mikael Ndjoli. This time he ran at the defence and his innocuous shot beat Andrew Payne at the far post.

Half Time: Newport 0 AFC Bournemouth 2

It didn’t take Bournemouth long to take advantage of an extra man. Mikael Ndjoli completed his hat trick on 53 minutes when he picked the ball up near the bye line, shrugged off a couple of Newport tackles and from an acute angle slotted the ball into the net. On 59 minutes Andrew Payne could only watch as a 15 yard shot from Charlie Seaman rattled the post

The fourth and fifth goals came within a minute of each other and both were scored by Mikael Ndjoli. The fourth was a mix up in the Newport defence and the fifth was a shot cutting in.

Jake Scrimshaw scored the sixth with a shot from outside the penalty area.
Newport brought off Lewis Wright and Aidan Sainsbury to be replaced by Darren Powell and Martin McDonough. Bournemouth brought on all three substitutes simultaneously.

In the final quarter of an hour, the Newport defence contained the Bournemouth attack but throughout the match, Jordan Holmes had little to do in goal.

The Port win 2:1 to progress in the FA Vase

Newport progressed to the next round of the F.A.Vase this afternoon by coming from behind to beat fellow Wessex League side Alresford Town, in a keenly contested match at St George’s Park.

Newport kicked off attacking the allotment end. There was an early yellow card for Spike Pearce for a foul on Geoff Dunn.
Alresford looked the stronger team from the start and at one time only a last minute intervention from Mark Taylor stopped a clear run at goal
Alresford took the lead on 22 minutes when Steve Hall intercepted a bad cross field pass and was able to run goalwards before firing in a 20 yard shot that looked innocuous but rolled into the corner of the net

Newport gradually got back into the match and on 34 minutes a 25 yard goal bound free kick from Connor Kelly took a deflection for a corner. From the corner the ball broke to Mark Taylor on the edge of the penalty area whose fiercely driven shot was fumbled by Daniel Kempson before being scrambled clear.

Just prior to the interval Jacob Reynolds was booked for shirtpulling Geoff Dunn as he raced towards goal.

Newport continued to struggle against a well organised Alresford defence.

Half Time Newport 0 Alresford 1

Newport made a half time substitution in defence bringing on Keelan Walsh in place of Jacob Reynolds. In less than a minute Newport had equalised. Connor Kelly outpaced the defence on the left and his cross found Darren Powell. Although his header was cleared off the line Scott Sampson reacted first to the loose ball and headed it into the net.

Alresford should have taken the lead on 57 minutes when following a break down the right Steve Hall managed to shoot over the bar from six yards out.
Newport’s second goal on 62 minutes also originated from a break by Connor Kelly. This time it was met by Jared Wetherick, who bundled it into the net.

Newport were looking the better team now keeping Alresford penned in their own half

Alresford made a substitution bringing on Chigozie Agweugbo for Geoff Dunn.

Both teams made substitutions with fifteen minutes remaining. Newport replaced Jared Wetherick with Lewis Wright and Alresford replaced John Cole with Harry Bayles. The final fifteen minutes were frantic as Alresford pressed for an equaliser and from a corner Gary Streeter tipped a header over the bar.

Newport attacked as well, as play became end to end and from a corner the ball was headed clear to Will Quigley who fired in a thirty yard shot from near the touchline that Daniel Kempson did well to catch just under the corner of the cross bar.

Newport desperately defended as there was four minutes stoppage time played but managed to hold on.

Newport 4-2 Bemerton Heath Harlequins

Newport recovered from being two nil down after half an hour to beat Bemerton Heath Harlequins 4-2 and register their first home league win of the season.
Newport included Connor Kelly, who has recently re-signed from Sholing, in their starting line up as Josh Younie was on the substitutes bench along with Darren Powell who was replaced by Martin McDonough.

Newport kicked off attacking the Allotment end and in the first minute Emerson Tattersall managed to get in a shot but it was straight at Lewis Watch.

It was Bemerton who took the lead on eight minutes from a corner on the right. Scott Hassell raced into the goal area and headed in from close range.
After a period of Newport pressure when they created a few chance without seriously testing Lewis Watch, Bemerton had a chance to increase the lead but a close range header from Harry Prisk was well saved by Gary Streeter..

Bemerton Heath increase the lead on 28 minute, following a needless trip by Emerson Tattersall. Jamie Waters penalty low to Gary Streeter’s right was well save by the keeper but the Bemerton player reacted first to the rebound to bundle the ball into the net.

The game swung Newport’s way with three goals in five minutes just prior to half time.
From a free kick, the Bemerton defence failed to clear the ball and in the melee, Jared Wetherick blasted it into the net from close range. Shortly afterwards the ball broke to Emerson Tattersall in the penalty area and he was able to drive in a low shot into the corner of the net. Then Connor Kelly marked his return by running on to a defence splitting pass before slotting the ball past Lewis Watch.

Half Time Newport 3 Bemerton Heath Harlequins 2

Newport started the second half looking lively and both Jared Wetherick and Emerson Tattersall went close before Emerson Tattersall scored the fourth squeezing the ball in by the post in the 55th the Bemerton defence failed to clear a free kick.

Newport made a substitution bringing on Josh Younie for Connor Kelly then five minutes later Darren Powell came on for Emerson Tattersall. Finally with 15 minutes remaining Jared Wetherick gave way to Lewis Wright.

The fourth goal deflated Bemerton as Newport gained superiority and with a two goal advantage were able to see out the final minutes without any scares to move up two places to seventeenth.

Newport 4-3 Tadley Calleva

Attention turned to the Wessex League Cup tonight as the visitors were Tadley Calleva, currently second in Wessex Division 1 and the sparse crowd was treated to an entertaining match, only decided in the dying minutes. Jared Wetherick returned to the side having served a suspension.

Newport kicked off attacking the Allotment end with the rain that swept across the ground in their backs. Within two minutes Emerson Tattersall had weaved his way through the defence but he shot straight at Kieron Greene. A free kick from Josh Younie was turned away by Kieron Greene, near the base of the post.

With 17 minutes gone, Aiden Sainsbury cut in from the right but his shot across the face of the goal narrowly missed the far post.

Tadley first serious shot came on 21 minutes when Sam Hamilton found space on the edge of the penalty area but shot straight at Gary Streeter..

Newport took the lead on 29 minutes then scored a second a minute later, both from Jared Wetherick.. The first saw him jinx through the defence before slotting it past Kieron Greene and the second was a curling shot from the edge of the penalty area that found the top corner of the net..

Newport had looked the better team in the first half and deserved their two goal lead but with the rain still sweeping across the pitch could this be a game of two halves.

Half Time Newport 2 Tadley Calleva 0

Newport made a half time substitution with Emerson Tattersall, who had been booked just before half time, replaced by Matt Gane.

In the opening two minutes both sides hit the post from close range.. Tadley pulled a goal back on 51 minutes when a looping cross from Alex Charlick was pushed away from under the bar from Gary Streeter into the path of Brett Denham who scrambled in it at the far post..

Newport’s third goal came on 63 minutes when Charlie Urry sent a high cross to the far post and Jared Wetherick nodded it in to compete his hat trick.

Tadley made a substitution bringing on Mario Nurse. Despite kicking into a gale, Newport continued to attack and brought on Alex Harmer for Josh Younie with 12 mintes remaining.

In the space of a minute Tadley were back in the match scoring twice, the first direct from a corner by Alex Charlick and the second from a penalty. Mario Nurse was brought down by Gary Streeter and although Gary Streeter saved Paul Coventry’s low penalty the Tadley forward reacted quickest to tap in the rebound.

Just when it seemed that the match would be decided on penalties, Jared Wetherick completed a fine individual display by scoring his fourth goal to settle the tie. He gathered the ball on the edge of the penalty area, turned his defender and fired a shot into the net giving Kieron Greene no chance. Newport then had six minutes to hang on to their lead which they managed without many scares to progress to the final sixteen of the competition.

A hard fought victory for Newport in a match played in atrocious conditions

Newport 5 -2 Fleet Spurs

Newport returned to winning ways this afternoon as they defeated Fleet Spurs from the Combined Counties League Div 1, 5-2 in the first qualifying round of the F.A.Vase.

It was warm overcast conditions that greeted Fleet Spurs making their first visit to St George’s Park. Newport made four changes from the side that lost to Portchester on Tuesday night. Gary Streeter returned in goal, Darren Powell and Mark Taylor returned in place of Spike Pearce and Lewis Wright and Josh Younie replaced Matt Gane. Fleet Spurs made three changes from the side that lost to league leaders Eversley & California last week.

Fleet Spurs kicked off attacking the Shide end. Within six minutes Newport had the lead. Emerson Tattersall chased a long ball which the keeper should have cleared. As Mark Appleby attempted to control it, he was dispossessed by Emerson Tattersall, who then had the simple task of steering the ball into the empty net. Newport had a second goal ruled out because of offside. From a midfield tackle the ball broke to Emerson Tattersall but instead of trying to round the keeper he passed to an offside colleague.

Fleet were having problems with the pace of the Newport attack as the home side began to control midfield however in a rare Fleet Spurs counterattack Sam Knowles blasted across the face of the goal but Peter Lines at the far post found his shot smothered by Gary Streeter.

Newport increased their lead on 35 minutes. Charlie Urry received the ball on the edge of the penalty area, jinxed around a couple of defenders, created space for himself then drove the ball into the corner of the net. Three minutes later a Fleet clearance struck another defender and rebounded to Emerson Tattersall,who raced goalwards and slotted the ball past the advancing Mark Appleby, into the net.

Newport fully deserved their half time advantage


Within three minutes Newport had a fourth goal when Charlie Urry raced on to a through ball, rounded Mark Appleby and tapped the ball into the net from close range. A minute later Emerson Tattersall scored the fifth when he ran on to a low cross from Mark Taylor.

Fleet Spurs were awarded a penalty on 57 minutes following a foul by Aiden Sainsbury. Sam Knowles placed the penalty well out of the reach of Gary Streeter. In a five minute spell both teams made two substitutions. As a result of the substitutions, Newport’s tempo dipped slightly and Fleet Spurs came more into the match but still Newport continued to pepper the Fleet goal with shots. As the match meandered to a conclusion Newport struck the post and crossbar and were frequently denied by good goalkeeping by Mark Appleby.

Fleet created a few chances with Dan Murray producing a good save from Gary Streeter then in the final minute Thomas Chillery scored a consolation goal with a 20 yard shot that gave Gary Streeter no chance.
A excellent performance from Newport and in the next round on September 23rd they are at home to Alresford Town.

Newport 0 AFC Portchester 7

The rain that fell all afternoon finally ceased prior to kick off. Newport made three changes from the side that started at Brockenhurst on Saturday.

Newport kicked off attacking the Shide end but found themselves a goal down inside a minute. Instead of being cleared, the ball was allowed to run loose along the edge of the penalty area and a 20yard shot from Bobby Scott flew over Will O’Connell and into the roof of the net.
The first yellow card came after only 11 minutes when Josh Warren brought down Charlie Urry. Newport began to attack more as the game progressed and Emerson Tattersell twice had good chances as Newport began to look the better side.
Portchester increased their lead on 25 minutes when a free kick near the right touchline by Joe Bye eluded everybody and crept in by the far post.
Aiden Sainsbury was shown a yellow card for a foul tackle. The second goal seemed to deflate Newport as Portchester began to have more of the game and finished the half looking the stronger side.

Half Time: Newport 0 Portchester 2

Portchester started the second half strongly with Will O’Carroll producing a good save to deny Bobby Scott in the first minute. From the resultant corner the ball bounced on to a post before being cleared.

On 52 minutes Bobby Scott outpaced the Newport defence and slotted the ball past Will O’Carroll for Portchester’s third. The fourth goal on 58 minutes was a 20 yard low shot by Steve Ramsey that appeared to take a deflection and effectively took the match beyond Newport. Emerson Tattersell was shown a yellow card for a tackle on Robert Evans and was immediately substituted by Kyle Drew.

Both teams made substitutions on 67 minutes, Newport brought on Tony Potts for Alex Harmer and Portchester replaced Jake Morgan with Andrew Todd.
When the match restarted only a timely tackle by Jacob Reynolds prevented Portchester from having a clear shot at goal. Portchester made another substitution with George Wells coming on for Dale Mason

Portchester’s fifth goal came from a corner that was headed in by Andrew Todd.

Darren Powell replaced Lewis Wright for the final ten minutes with Portchester bringing on Harry Birmingham for Josh Warren.
The sixth goal on 86 minutes came from a free kick near the touchline. The ball looked like it was going out of play but Andrew Todd ran round the blind side and scrambled it into the net
Newport’s misery was compounded with the seventh goal on 90 minutes scored by George Wells with 20 yard drive.
This was the first time that Newport had conceded seven goals in the Wessex League and their heaviest defeat since they lost 8-1 at Godalming in March 2008.

Final Score Newport 0 Portchester 7

Newport; Will O’Carroll , Will Quigley, Jacob Reynolds, Aiden Sainsbury, Martin Mcdonough, Spike Pearce, Alex Harmer (Tony Potts), Lewis Wright (Darren Powell), Charlie Urry, Emerson Tattersall (Kyle Drew), Matt Gane.

Brockenhurst 3-0 Newport

Newport fell to their third successive league defeat against Brockenhurst today. For most of the match play was evenly contested on a pitch bathed in late summer sunshine.
The new managerial team of Gary Streeter and Darren Powell gave debuts to Jacob Reynolds and Tony Potts. As Emerson Tattersall and Jared Wetherick were suspended.
Brockenhurst scored first after only seven minutes from a free kick inside the centre circle. The ball appeared to be going out of play behind the goal but Matt Burt kept it in and as the Newport defence stood still played it back to Aaron Dunne who fired into the net from about 10 yards.
Newport’s best chance of an equaliser came two minutes before half time when from 25 yards Mark Taylor’s shot just flew over the crossbar.

Half Time Brockenhurst 1 Newport 0

Brockenhurst started the second half brightly and Will Tickle had two shots in quick succession although both were off target. As Newport pressed for an equaliser Aiden Sainsbury saw his shot pushed away for a corner by Matt Taylor.
Will O’Carroll produced a good save as Will Tickle fired in a low free kick. Brockenhurst made the game safe on 79 minutes when Will Tickle outpaced the defence to run onto a long through ball and stroked it past Will O’Carroll for the second goal. Two minutes later Newport needlessly conceded a free kick on the edge of the penalty area and Mark Barker gave Will O’Carroll no chance as it flew into the top corner of the net.
A better performance than the previous two matches, but Newport still need to convert possession into chances.
