Newington FC reach Tennent's Irish Cup Third Round

Newington FC put their name in the hat for the third round of the Tennent's Irish Cup after a 3-1 win against Newry City AFC at Newry Showgrounds.

After a feisty first half which saw the game at a 1-1 stalemate, Newington scored twice on the break to seal a win in the Tennent's Irish Cup 'tie of the round'.

Manager Conor Crossan knew beating fellow Premier Intermediate side Newry City AFC was a big win for his side: "It's a very good win for us here against Newry City, it was a hard fought win, we played really well against a really strong team so we are over the moon.

"It's a big stepping stone to the third round and hopefully we can progress again and meet the big boys. The boys are delighted in the changing room."
