The development squad began their Newport and district journey with what should have been a very tough, physical test against Machen, on a ridiculously hot day at Tredegar Park. We began quickly with the very first ever goal for this team being scored by James Thomas. What followed in the next 2o mins was an onslaught that would leave Machen reeling and ultimately unable to respond.
Goals from Dan Butler (3) , Farrell Rafferty (2) , Owen Hughes (2) , Ngoni Jeko (2), Patrick Bilongo, Brian Beni , a pen from Joe Donovan and a goal from Man of the Match Brad Amagada led to a comprehensive 14-0 which the ref blew up 15 mins early. So, a great start and well-deserved win but no cockiness at our end. We go again on Wednesday Weds vs Newport Corries. Well done to Machen for their hard work and effort in very tough heat. #UpTheCity
