Why not visit the Craic an Iúir - Newry Chatroom - Just log in, give yourself a name and start chatting. Beware this is new so it will take some time for chatters to build up. Why not visit on Sundays at 3.00pm GMT and Monday mornings between 9am & 11am and hopefully there'll be another few Newry nyucks there at the same time.

Aggh here everybody wait till ya's hear the criac:
There are trial this Sunday (only a few places left like) to play in Paris in an international Universities soccer tournament.
Good call or what! Hopefully there will be less conspiracy involved in the selection process in comparison to the Town.
Mark Rutherford got the vote this time.
I must go and work on that poem - or will I?  Emm?
I'm away anyway, just got shouted at there for not going to training today.  Sure I'm dying of the cold.
Slan,
Francie!

Anon,
cool poem!
I must have a go myself (wtiting a poem like) and see what I can do.
Lads and womenseees we will have to start commenting in this page before everbody deserts it and I am left with no Newry Town home page (sorry correction - no decent page to log onto).
What about Belfast United?
Does anybody know much craic about that!
Get back to me and I'll tell ya's what I know about them.
Better go short and sweet from now on.

I think Mal Donaghy should be sacked as soon as possible, the recent run of results are a disgrace. How can a team be in the top three and within reaching distance of Linfield one minute and then be close to the relegation zone the next !!???    The only explaination is the crap  management .  Sack Donaghy and bring back John McDonnell.

A Poem About Newry

Newry Town are the local team
When they play well they are like a dream
Johnny Mac scoring with his head
Or Rico or John Joe intead
Reddish, Soupie and Deano
Newry will deal you a mighty blow
With Mal as our manager we will grow leaps and bounds
No stoppin us now for the Bass Irish cup crown.

With John Joe, Witnell and Rico up front
Every team will feel the punch
So everyone watch out for Newry Town soon
We'll be there to put you out
Maybe relegation from the league or from the cup
We'll not go down the fans will shout.
It isn't far to go or to pay
For the Town to entertain you
On a Tuesday or Saturday. Anon

Just scouting around the enemy's sites. Not bad at all! Perhaps you could add a link to the London Glens homepage. The address is http://londonglens.homestead.com. All the best.
C. Irvine, London

Well lad's,
Well done John Joe, I'd vote for your but your name is not on the fans player of the season thing on the internet.
Note for the editor there!
Anyway, tell Johhny Cowan I voted for him instead this time.
I was just reading through all the stuff there about the hawk and well I'm getting very pesimestic thoughts regarding the management know. 
Honestly and realistically they seem as if they will be going soon (The mgt). 
The previous views of the editor to attempt to save the club is complimentary (Firday night fixtures).
Obviously he has a desire to preservere more so than the so called mangement.
I'm away oh and the Gaelic football final medal is equilvalent to a segersions championship runners up medal.
Did any of ya's ever hear of Abroath or NCR soccer football clubs?
I might be playing for one of them.
See ya's 
franciemccabe@hotmail.com
Ed. I'm considering re-naming this page the Francie McCabe page! Thanks Francie

I agree with the fella from south Armagh, the support with the club is full of oul sh**es who wouldn't know success if it sit up and and put a wig on their baldy heads. The only way to make Newry a success is to have all the Celtic supporters etc. come down on a Friday night give the team a big push and sing songs that would make the old men curl up and support Linfield. Show us the green, white and orange and we'll show you support! The Nyuck, Newry

Editor's comments about the Friday night match's where too tempting to ignore.
Friday night match's in my opinion will be a very good idea since the town will get more revenue, support (possibly) and can do a bitta re-organisation with a additional cash.
And give that gobsh*te another chance (one too many - extra opportunity) to do some managing not diminishing talent.
The editor may well save this Mal fella's career if he pay's attention and does some work.
In my opinion.
I don't like commenting on the youth since I get shouted at, but it is an excellent chance for youth development in my view.
Plus youth support will be supported (by people = £ hello management you can't afford to ignore this) as we all know but the town need the right man for the job, Johnsey Mallon was perfect and is no longer there for some strange reason.
Anyway can't be getting off track......
I think that the drinking aspect maybe a bad idea though.
It could be argued but health & Safety legislation will more than likely not allow  drinking on certain circumstances.
But if it is benefical to the supporter's and indirectly to the team then if I was the manager I would be seriouly considering it.
I'm not and I will not be the manager but who will take the reigns after the departure of Mal?
Em, not getting off track better go I've training with the Uni cause we are going to win the Scottish Championship.  Hammer all them!
See ya's
sorry for taking up so much space lads.
franciemccabe@hotmail.com
Ed.Thanks Francie and I wasn't suggesting that the management activly support Friday booze sessions at the Showgrounds I just thought that it would be something I could enjoy....on the sly like!

Does anyone use the chatroom. I have never spoken to anyone in it. If you are in this website would you please join up. Its easy.
Someone needs to sort Mal out. He brings in crap players and ever since he took over things have went downhill. Let Johnny Mac take back the manager position.
Good luck to the Town for Saturday.

B.F. An tIur
Ed. In order for the Chatroom to work we need everyone to go there around the same time. I tried to arrange this for people to visit at 6p.m. on Sundays, but this has been unsuccessful. If you want me to post notices to visit at more convient times then tell me when, but most people visit the site on Sundays and Mondays.

well its good to see that the old Newry cronies are working their way back to the showgrounds. they got rid of JOE RICE and put in the supremo, colie of the guys variety. its good to se we are back to normal again, no fans, no money to pay players, no results and no manager. the people from NEWRY stink. i cant wait till the day that Linfield or the Glens break through into Newrys section and wreck the place and beat the sh** out of all those cronies who do not have a clue about what football is all about. not so long ago newry were 4 points adrift of Linfield and sir mal took over.. in 2 games Ben Trainor  scored 2 goals and yes wait for it ... he was dropped in the next game. he continued to play a headless chicken up front, no fault of his own tries hard, but surely to god there is better around, the fans if you can call them that were not even happy when we were beating the Glens home and away, still had to criticise, yes all those big fat supporters who never played football at any level to appreciate the standards, still yapped on. Our P.R.O what a joke, he shouts at our fans to stop singing songs.....atmosphere you silly old ballocks... have you ever heard of it. if those 30 or so singers decide to give Newry a miss then that will leave only the stewarts and the committee to run the show. i know loads of young lads who would go down and support newry if they didnt have to take the shit from their own supporters.
Newry made 1 big mistake... they got rid of one man who put newry on the map. before he went to newry they had no money, no success, no stands, no pub,no fans, no directors boxes he brought the lot and now he is gone newry have lost nearly the lot... and when the receivers move in they will lose the lot.. i predict 2 years max.  good bye and good riddance..   come on Banbridge, Peter , Jamesy and D. McParland turn them over and get rid of WEE MAL..

Anon, S.Armagh

I think it is about time something is done about the management.  When Mal took over we were second in the league and look were we are now, just two places above relegation.  I also think that should stop buying crap players like Gilgunn and Spackman when we have already got Jonny Cowan and Josh Connoly who do play in the same  positions that these players try to play in.
Anyway Hope we win the cup match on Saturday.
Anon

      !EVERYBODY!
I would just like to appoligy to all those people wishing to contact me previously.
As you can see I had .com.uk in my address but as we all know that is not possible at the moment for this to happen.
So here is my contat address:
franciemccabe@hotmail.com
Oh, and I would just like to start a new discussion:
What about the craic about Belfast United?
~I'd better go where playing in Birmigham tomorrow for the U.K. finals.
All the best
franciemccabe@hotmail.com If you have any comments about my previous statements please contact this address above!

P.S. That fella for Drumcashlone calling himself the 'Ronaldo' of the carabane league is badly mistaken about the standard of football he thinks he is playing.
I have played numerous times against the Drums and there is no way that he stuck out.  maybe stuck out like a sore tumb to his team mates when he fumbled most of the time.
I'd better go before I start a new debate!
Francie McCabe-as if you didn't know!

Ed. What about a debate on Friday night matches at the Showgrounds - maybe we can persuade the powers that be. I think its a class idea and one which would bring in more fans - It would be good if you could drink your booze at the match too!

Well, Voted for ya Shamey, but I hope your on your way to better places.
Locko say's him and feehan had to walk home from lacey's to Newry!
Here, relegation is on the cards for the town now.
Still the Banbridge match should be good and we are all expecting a win for the town.
I'll not get into comments about the youth or I'll/ we'll be here all night.
Not yaking at the management or anything but did the Town ever have a look at the talent in the Killeavey United's team?
Is Mark Rutherfords okay?  Well if he goes down the Town will go down!  Our opinions.
Gotta go were on our way to play in the U.K. finals on Friday.
University of Abertay Dundee.
That's all for now from Francie, Locko, and Savo!
P.S. What's with the new debates lads - are there gonna be any contructed comments about relegation or any other topic for that matter?  Or is it total optimism attitude ed?
Francie, Locko and Savo

Ed. Well a bit of lively debate would be asking a little since Newry-folk traditionally are a liitle docile when it comes to such things- another debate perhaps - I don't think so. Anyway, yes Newry are suffering injuries what with Rutherford and Casey going out and of course the super Paul Stranney who will hopefully be returning soon to put an end to the goalkeeper crisis. On relegation - I think we could easily be fighting it out as I predicted much earlier in the season - see News section - but the blame for this I fear will be on Mal Donaghy's head since when he took over we were still doing well ! Should he go?

As a Dundalk fan I'm just wondering how you all think Shane Reddish and Ray Campbell are playing this season. Also, now that you can use the benefit of hindsight, was Joe Rice a good thing for Newry Town?? A lot of Dundalk people are a bit jealous that he didn't pump money into us but I have heard a few rumours that Newry wish he had stayed away. Does he have any connections with Newry still?? Also, where is Dessie Gorman these days????
Colm, Dundalk

I can't stand it any longer.
Paying £3 a week to go in and watch crap football.
Some younger Newry fans were kept in for 30 minutes after the game had ended by the RUC. All others were let out except for us.
One officer went up to someone (trying to intimidate him and said "I'll speak to you in a cell later". They said it was for our safety...... bullsh*t. We weren't even allowed into the social club at half time. No wonder hardly anyone supports the Town. While Linfield probably had more supporters at the match.
Anon

GREAT WEB SITE                                   Keep up the good work Spike, Queens, New Yotk

I would just like to start a new discussion as the editor reckoned my previous comments were getting a bit boring.  More cover ups!
Anyway, another one up for discussion here is obvioulsy the relegation battle.
Would this have happened under the previous management?
Well what do you think?
I never heard any comments about the youth team being expelled from the league.
Why does nobody have any comments on that?
I'll speak to anybody with contructed comments@franciemccabe@hotmail.com

Ed. What the Youth team did was wrong so they deserved punished but a little severe putting them out of the competition - but we need to have confidence that the results we hear are the correct ( & real) ones.

SPEAKING AS A GLENAVON FAN AT TODAYS MATCH I WAS HORRIFIED AT WHAT HAPPENED AFTER TODAYS GAME BY THE NEWRY TOWN FANS...
FIRSTLY ALAN SNODDY LOST THE PLOT, SENDING OFF 3 PLAYERS WHICH SHOULDN'T BEEN SENT OFF. BUT A MINORITY OF YOUR SUPPORTER'S WHERE SHINING LASERS AT THE GLENAVON FANS FROM THE BACK OF THE BUS AND SINGING SECTARIAN SONGS TO TAUNT THEM, NOW SPEAKING AS A LEVEL HEADED FOOTBALL FAN, I THOUGHT TO DO THIS WAS A BIT STUPID, AS IF A FIGHT HAD BROKEN OUT IT COULD OF GOT OUT OF HAND.
I HAVE A LOT OF TIME FOR NEWRY TOWN FC AND ALWAYS LIKE GOING TO THE SHOWGROUNDS, BUT CAN I JUST SAY WE DIDN'T GET YOUR PLAYERS SENT OFF, IT WAS THE IRISH LEAGUE REFEREES FAULT.
ALSO COULD WHICHEVER ONE OF YOUR DIRECTORS WHO WAS DRIVING HIS BLACK MERCEDES BE MORE CAREFUL DRIVING OUT OF MOURNVIEW AT HIGH SPEED AS YOU NEARLY KNOCKED DOWN YOUR OWN SUPPORTERS GETTING ONTO THE BUS.
LOOK IT'S ONLY FOOTBALL, YOU LOT WON THE IRISH CUP GAME, WE WON THE LEAGUE GAME SO IT'S EVEN
ALL THE BEST

P, Banbridge

Seamus get out asap!
Here Sheamy, get over to England or Scotland or somewhere, you are an excellent player.  Ah well it's only a matter of time look at Rosa and Angus both with Birmingham now I think!
Voted for ya in that player of the year thing.
Hope ya actually read this.  I can't believe that the youth's where fined
                           £250-00!
Is Gary Quinn still with the youth - I wounder?
Anyway gotta go.  We are playing Edingburgh tomorrow!
All those comments about youth not getting chances are all shite!

This is not a shot in the dark attack on Newry Town's Youth - so please construct your replies!
Francie McCabe, Dundee
Ed. How about starting a new discussion then - this debate is getting a bit boring

A chara

Well donethe Town for beating Glenavon. I was not able to go but I was relived to have seen the score.
Bass Irish Cup Champions at the end of the season! I hope so.
BF, An tIur

I WOULD LIKE TO CLEAR THE REASONS AS TO WHY ADRIAN LARKIN DECIDED TO LEAVE NEWRY TO GO TO PORTADOWN. FIRSTLY, NEWRY DID OFFER LARKIN A NEW CONTRACT WHICH HE TURNED DOWN.DURING THE FEW WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE END OF HIS CONTRACT HE WSA "POACHED" BY RONNIE MCFALL AND ALLEGEDLY WAS OFFERED MONEY TO MOVE TO PORTADOWN.NEWRY PLAYED BALLYMENA AT THE SHOWGROUNDS ON A TUESDAY NIGHT.LARKIN SCORED A PENALTY TO SEAL THE VICTORY. AROUND TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER LARKIN'S CONTRACT EXPIRED AND HE SUBSEQUENTLY MOVED TO PORTADOWN. OBVIOUSLY IT WOULD HAVE BETTER FOR THE CLUB IF THEY HAD BEEN ABLE TO KEEP HIM AT THE SHOWGROUNDS BUT IT WAS THE CHOICE OF THE PLAYER AND NOT OF THE MEN IN THE BOARDROOM
 
Gareth  McC , Warrenpoint 

 
I would just like to say how unlucky the town where to lose to Portadown.  They had ten men for most of the match and they held Portadown really well.  I thought they at least deserved a draw.  Good luck for the cup watch at Glenavon.
 
Kevin, Camlough 

 
I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL THE BICKERING ABOUT THE YOUTH POLICY IMPLIED AT NEWRY TOWN.AS A BLUEMAN I CONGRATULATE THE TOWN'S MANAGEMENT FOR GIVING A CHANCE TO ALL PROMISING YOUNGSTERS.SHOULD LINFIELD START DOING THE SAME THEN I FEEL MORE TALENTED PLAYERS LIKE LEE FEENEY,RORY HAMILL,ANDY KIRK,COULD BE WATCHED AND THIS WOULD SURELY START TO ATTRACT LARGER CROWDS TO IRISH LEAGUE GAMES.ON THIS POINT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SEE MORE FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES SO AS AMATEUR SPORTSPEOPLE COULD ATTEND LEAGUE GAMES AND ENJOY THEIR SPORT ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AS WELL.
FINALLY A WORD OF COMMISERATION TO ALL YOU SADDENED NEWRY FANS WHO WATCHED THE HOME SIDE CRUMBLE TO THE MIGHTY BLUEMEN ON THEIR ROAD TO THIS SEASONS LEAGUE TROPHY.
 Linfield Fan 
Ed. I started the debate about local players as things on this page were getting a bit boring, I'll start something else next week! I do applaud the Town for their policy but can think of two local players who received bad treatment. I like the idea of an Irish League with local players in it because lets face it the quality of football is poor, and is likely to remain so as there is little finance and support for it. 

A Chara, Mark Rutherford has been head and shoulders above everyone else I've managed to see
this season,apart from Mulholland when he's been playing gaelic for us.Up the Harps!
Slán go foill,
Suas leis an bhaile freisin!!!
 
John, ,Oxford 

I've just been to the Distillery game during the Christmas holidays and I have to say what a brilliant player Mark Rutherford is !!    Some of his skills and deft flicks would be good enough to grace the F.A. Premier League. Anyway I wouldn't be surprised if the likes of Linfield started taking a liking to him (I really hope they don't) and  the best of luck for the rest of the season 
P.S    Runners-up spot and cup sucess is still very possible  !!

P Johnson,Newcastle /Manchester

Howdy,Well Lads,
Was home for Christmas there and the club has gone from magic to really bad!
I was reading through the comments about youth getting a chance to perform on the glamourous stage.  And really that is not true.
People who were genuinely given an opportunity where Seamus Kane, Johnny Cowan, Glen Moffat and the two Martins.
Where are all of them now?  Seamus and Johnny are still there whereas Glen is in another Irish leauge club as far as I know it.  The two martins are playing over in England, not because of Newry Town, since both were playing carabane soccer for the last two years cause the town would not give them enough chances.
I seen Rosa in the newry repoter whilst I was home at christmas and well why was he not down playing for the town.  He is a lot better than a few forwards I could mention.
Also Johnsey Mallon is gone!  What's that all about?  The youth team he managed two years ago would probably beat the current first team.  Cowan was part of it, Seamus was at Cliftonville, Glen Moffat, myself, the two Martins and many other top class players which are back to playing carabane football. 
There are even good quality players that never even got a trail with the town, local talent. 
Not to mention a few at Killeavey, Owen Maguire, Anthony, Karl, Liam and Gareth O' Hare, Liam Gullganon and Marty in Nets.
As for Midway the young outfit of carabane soccer, there where ex-town youths in the squad mentioned above involved in their team - Vitsey, Gray and Coley Trainer.
There is a lot off other things I could comment on but well I'll be surprised if anybody contacts me back on this lot.
Thank's for letting me state my comments editor.
For anybody wishing to contact me simply reply to,

Andy the lurgan blueman was here - and he was quite impresed by the quality of this site.  My Glenavon site will soon be up and running the address being GlenavonWeb
Andy, Lurgan

Could any body possibly give me any information on an old Newry player Edward Rigby. He would have been playing about 1936 to 1947. Any informatoin would be greatly appreciated because i am doing this for his son many thanks Dave Greenhalgh, Bolton

Congratulations to newry towns best ever player of the century. Ollie Ralph Its a pity Newry town doesnt have players like they used to S McD, Killowen

Like to wish Alan Hall good-bye and best wishes to himat Ards Anon

I voted for Seamus Kane as I think he is one of the most tallented younsters ever to come out of the Camlough/Bessbrook and Newry area. Such a good natured, pleasant lad. Lets have ya Seamus!!!! Jackie Sheridan, Bessbrook now NY


Just back from the Crusaders deja vu. Despite the result the performance was heartening with so many young locals on show (admittedly against average opposition). They were given their obligatory penno v us and the less said about the free kick the better. Newry deserved better on the night but again didn't get it.
As for Larkin it's a wonder that he wasn't kept. Wasn't Anderson in charge of player contracts when he was here? Who knows where the money went but there doesn't seem to be much at the moment given how many players have left and that noone has been bought in. Eric, Newry
Ed. If Anderson was in charge maybe the good local talent (Larkin, Mulholland) will return now he's gone!?! I'd like to see transparent accounts & maybe something can be done to retrieve Larkin when the money comes in from the inter-toto!

let supporters put up whatever flags they want Aidan, Warrenpoint

aim for top 3 this season dissapointing against ballymena Niall, Dromintee

Fair point about local talent Mr McCullagh. They certainly have been given their chance this season (although how Larkin etc. were let go is another matter). But they will take time to find their feet and just because they're local doesn't mean they're all automatically up to it. The team sheet v Glentoran and subsequent result should show us that there is a place for experience too. By the way, Ed...I'll give you the benefit of the doubt!!! Judging by the mass exit v Linfield with 20 mins left alot of Newry fans may agree with you on the relegation issue...as would the old fella who was giving it loads to Donaghy as the teams left the pitch that day. He wasn't hard to miss, there were only about 50 of us left on the Newry side...and the police still held us in for 10 minutes! Eric, Newry
Ed. I can see this could develop into a nice wee debate - just what I want! In reply - How was Larkin let go? Maybe the club could be a little more transparent in how things are worked out in the boardroom and on the accounts books e.g. How has the money from the friendly with Man Utd been spent ? Also the old man shouting - he has every right to shout considering he spent £5 to watch such a schoolyard display, I think he has the right to criticise considering he is the customer and consumer !

Glentoran 0-3 Newry What about the relegation predictions now? Let's give the boys a chance and get behind them. Eric, Newry
Ed. I was only trying to stir some lively debate. Honest!



Hi there! This are Andre and Andreas from the MSV- Supporter-club "Commando Springfield". After the big fun we had at the Showgrounds in July, we are very interested in Newry Town FC and we would like to get in contact with Newry Supporters! If you are interested to, mail us!comspringfield@hotmail.com or write to: Andre Heinen, Steiermarkstr.56, 47249 Duisburg, Germany or Andreas Jörißen, Bergiusstr. 35, 47119 Duisburg, Germany! Thanks a lot....Andre and Andreas Andre, Duisburg

Hello from Duisburg!!!! We are a Supporters Club from MSV Duisburg called Commando Springfield and we would like to get in contact with some Newry supporters because since the game in the UI- Cup we are very interested in Newry town FC, too. So please contact us! You´ll never walk alone!!!! Andreas Duisburg

Well Lads, Just thought that I would send ya's an e-mail just saying hello an stuff from Scotland. Sheamy voted for ya! Here administrator this web page is cla. I was playing with Arbroath F.C. over here for a while but left to play University football. Bad call I know but I'll be back after the U.K. finals. See ya's Francie Mc Cabe (U.18's + Reserves Newry Town F.C.)

Hello to all the boys at newry. I am a newry town fan and proud of it all I want to say is please get your act together soon before its too late. also the main problem at the showgrounds is the management and we all know this. We need to get a decent manager and then maybe we will start winning again Jen McD, Rostrevor

IN REPLY TO YOUR COMMENTS REGARDING LAST SATURDAY'S DREADFUL RESULT AGAINST LINFIELD AND THE ACCOMPANYING ARTICLE, I THINK YOU WILL FIND A NUMBER OF FLAWS IN YOUR ARGUMENT. I FIND IT ABSOLUTELY AMAZING THAT YOU CRITICISE THE CLUB FOR NOT ENCOURAGING LOCAL TALENT; WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN SINCE THE START OF THE SEASON! HAVE YOU NOT HEARD OF LOCAL TALENT SUCH AS JONNY COWAN (ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST YOUNG PLAYERS TO WEAR A TOWN SHIRT) ,BEN TRAINOR, SEAMUS KANE, KARL HUGHES, PAUL DONEGAN, CIARAN FEEHAN (OKAY, I'LL GIVE YOU THAT ONE. NOT EXACTLY YOUNG AND NOT EXACTLY A SUPERSTAR EITHER)AND CHRIS MURPHY. I ADVISE YOU TO GET YOUR FACTS CORRECT BEFORE YOU START COMPLAINING ABOUT THE STATE OF THE CLUB. OKAY, THINGS ARE NOT GOING WELL AT THE MINUTE BUT WE CAN'T FORGET HOW FAR THE CLUB HAS COME IN THE LAST 4 YEARS AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, MAL DONAGHY AND SEAMUS HEATH ARE NOT MAGICIANS AND IT IS THE 11 MEN ON THE PITCH THAT PLAY THE FOOTBALL. Gareth McCullough, Warrenpoint
ed.The point I was trying to make was that the board consitently let good local talent go by not renewing contracts. I think Newry Town could be a better team with players of Adrian Larkin and Shane Mulhollands calibre.

I can't believe the recent run of results ! What's happened to a team that done so well in the Inter Toto cup pre season and came 4th in League last season ? I havn'tt been to any games this season because I'm studying in Manchester but I will be attending the Distillery and Cliftonvile games during the Christmas Break,then I'll see what the hell has happened to my team. Paul Johnston, Newcastle/Manchester

IF YOU WANT TO ATTRACT CROWDS BUILD A NEW STADIUM NEAR THE TRAINING PITCH OR IMPROVE GROUND CAPICITY AT THE SHOWGROUNDS PS KEEP DESSIE Andy McMath, Kilkeel

I just want to make a comment about the disgraceful behaviour of referee Leslie Irvine in the home game against Glenavon.
He obviously took pleasure in goading Mark Rutherford and said something that was inappropriate and hurtful to the player.
I would, as a Newry Town fan, hope that this matter is taken seriously and dealt with properly. That type of thing has no place in irish league football. Soupie, Newry

Being a Cliftonville fan and having not looked round your site for too long (Match Of The Day has just started) I'm impressed.
Can't wait til we stuff yous in the Shield next week! Solitudarian, Belfast

Good Luck Lads.
You are in all your fans thoughts and prayers. Just get out there and give it your best shot. love from one of the locals. From a town so near to use. Sarah, Warrenpoint

Poor result yesterday but we'll live with it. COME ON NEWRY! DEE - Phatboy Dim

Welcome back JAB, good to see the boy made it back from Australia in one piece! Best of luck boys for the season ahead, and well done in europe, you made all the town supporters proud! Send JAB a message for me...tell him his wee cousin from Australia is hoping he has lost some weight since I saw him!! Good to see you back on the pitch Ciaran. Peter Feehan, Sydney,Australia

Delighted to be able to keep track of Newry Town via your web site and the Internet. Took a while to get this year's information on the site, but I thoroughly enjoy keeping tabs on the team's progress from almost the tip of the African continent. Siteki and Swaziland are a long way from Warrenpoint and Newry Town Football Club but this site brings it a little bit closer and certainly more immediate. Are there other registered Newry Town supporters in this neck of the woods ! C.Bradley, Swaziland

Gidday from NZ, Does anyone remember Marcus Woods. He played for Newry in 1997/98 before coming out to NZ to play for my local club, Matamata Swifts. I've lost touch and was hoping someone could help me with an address or something. Cheers. Dwayne Barlow, New Zealand

Hi folks,
as a MSV Duisburg supporter and member of the internet supporters club ' Lucky Zebras ' I 'd like to congratulate you for having such an excellent homepage. The report of the game in Duisburg was pretty good and fair. I was very suprised of your team because they played very discplined in the back with a e few good actions forwards. Thats very similar to kind of play Duisburg usually plays in the german league . Coming deep from the own half with fast movements twoards the box and having the goal shot. The goalie has good reflexes but seems to have problems to keep the ball when deflecting it. The most amazing player to my mind was Mark Rutherford. He is a very fast and has goodcontrol of the ball. Could be a player for the german football league. In general the team is what the name says ( a team ) and MSV has to be careful today otherwise this could end in bad manor for us. Unfortunally the game will not be televised in Germany. May be some of you write a good report so I can make up my mind of the game Such excellent supportes are allways wellcome at Duisburg.
Greetings from Raven Raven - Duisburg

Well done on an almighty result today against the Germans. Look forward to you guys at Solitude again this season! Cliftonville supporter

well done all on the fantastic result against duisburg we should have no problems beating the likes of linfield and glentoran next season and win the league after a grand performance like that. no excuses now after beating the team who beat Bayern Munich Good Luck. flo - Newry

Hello Newry Town,
thanks for the great party we had in Newry. It was a pleasure for us. Hope to see you again.
You`ll never walk alone!!! Wendte - Mülheim

You showed that Europe is not a place to be feared by small clubs, hopefully next season we can get UEFA or Champions League. And put it up to Europe again. GF - Newry
