Island League Action returns

Island Saturday League football returned last week and Newport Football Club is represented through our A team.

The youngsters have found the Island League Division 2 tough as many of them played their first season of mens football. The enforced break because of lockdown has seen a resurgence as the team have gained their first points in the league. Last Saturday a 2-2 draw away to Yarmouth and Calbourne was followed up midweek with a 3-0 win at home to Wroxall.

On Saturday, the A team continue with a home match against Seaview at Northwood Rec, kick off at 2.00pm. Hopefully we shall all be able to watch a game soon.

Other Newport players have signed Island League forms to play for clubs for the rest of the season. Joe Craig, Martin McDonough, Ryan Hughes and Jake Wright have all signed for Whitecroft and Barton. Connor Kelly has signed for Ryde Saints. Ventnor have signed Neo Lamb and Harrison Yates, others have gone to Carisbrooke United, Niton, Pan Sports and Brading.
