Newbridge Hotspurs FC
Hotspurs 3rds 2-5 Naas Hotspurs good start came to an end today in the most spectacular way. 3 minutes in Naas gave Hotspurs a clear warning they meant business when a last ditch tackle from George Winning kept it 0-0. It didn't last long though as within 5 minutes Naas capitalised on needless unforced errors by Hotspurs which became the theme of the day when from their own kick out Spurs lost the header and one pass later the ball was in the net. Naas kept the pressure on and on 14 minutes were 2-0 up when the centre back found himself with a free header from the corner. Two quickly turned to three on 17 minutes after some very sloppy and uncharacteristic passing in the Hotspurs backline. Hotspurs were not giving in without a fight and pushed hard for the remainder of the half. Both Eoin Whelan and Michael Ugochukwu were very unlucky not to find themselves on the scoresheet before the break. The second half kicked off at a much faster pace with Hotspurs really eager to get back into the game and substitute Sanusi Jinadu was just the man to do it. Six minutes after coming on Jinadu found himself slotting home to give Spurs some hope. Celebrations were short lived however when Naas were handed an early Christmas gift in the form of a 4th goal. Spurs again dug deep to try and meet the challenges set by a fine Naas side and when Reis Foley broke he looked destined to score only to be pulled to the ground by the Naas CB who was given his marching orders. Hotspurs however seemed to have the wind already out of their sails and found themselves 5-1 down when Naas were awarded a dubious peno. Not to be seen to go out on a whimper Spurs push for goals and but for some fine saves by the Naas keeper from a couple of Hotspurs players the last 15 minutes could have been much more entertaining. Hotspurs Dean Campbell finished off a fine individual run with a superb finish from a narrow angle to end the game 5-2 in favour of Naas. Best for Hotspurs were Graeme Donoghue Ryan O Donoghue and Alan Perth
Newbridge Hotspurs 2 Newbridge Colts 1 KDFL Premier Division Three points and a first win of the season all that really matters for Hotspurs, but by God did they make it hard work for themselves. Colts courtesy of two Red cards were down to nine men for the last 15 minutes, but some awful finishing from Hotspurs attackers kept the game alive right to the final seconds. Only for an outstanding display from Hotspurs backline, Colts could well have taken something out if this game. Hotspurs started the game with Intent and after just 10 minutes skipper Greg Kelly was denied by a super save from Colts custodian, from the rebound Xhevdet Jeff Haliti saw his header cleared off the line. One minute later things took a dark turn for the home side, when Dylan Aulsberry was the victim of a high challenge which left him with a badly bruised ankle and was unable to play any further part in the game. It was Aulsberry's replacement Eoin Mcgrath who was to provide the breakthrough moment in the game. Despite both sides having plenty of possession it was the defences that were dominating the game, but with the clock ticking down to half time, some great build up play between Benjamin Landy & Jeff Haliti led to Greg Kelly playing a quick ball across the face of goal, and McGrath found the net with a very tidy finish. The second half saw the game start to open up a bit and both sides had their chances. It was Colts who struck next however with 20 minutes gone to bring the game level. Soon after the away team found themselves down to 10 men, but it didn't stop them bringing the game to Hotspurs. Greg Kelly saw a shot fly inches past the post for Hotspurs and Scott O'Donoghue was kept busy in the home goal. With 15 minutes remaining Colts lost another man to a Red card and two minutes later Lynch ッ Ross fired in a screamer from distance to restore the goal advantage. Instead of capitalising on the extra men, Hotspurs attackers missed chance after chance, while Colts continued to pressurise the Home defensive line, which was brilliantly marshalled by Benjy Landy. In the end Hotspurs were relieved to hear the final whistle, and despite not turning in the kind of performance they threatened to will be relieved that they are finally up and running for the season. Credit to keeper Scott O'Donoghue, Jamie Meenan, Conor McLoughlin, Conan Hayes, Niall Mc Donnell & Benjy Landy who kept the Colts attacks at bay so well. No automatic alt text available.
Harry Collins taking his punishment like a "man" for being sent off in Sunday's game
Hotspurs 3-1 Bush Celtic Hotspurs keep the momentum going after another hard fought but impressive win over Bush Celtic. After a slow start Spurs backline adjusted to their opponents long balls over the top and they started to take control of a very end to end first half, only to go in at HT 0-0 thanks to some athletic goalkeeping from the Bush keeper tip Harry Collins long range shot just over the bar. Hotspurs regrouped at halftime and from the off were the better team. Who got their reward on 47 minutes when Sanusi Jinadu got on the end of Harry Collins pinpoint ball after some superb one touch passing from his teammates resulting in Hotspurs taking the lead. It was one was traffic from their for the next 10 minutes which again saw Sanusi capitalise on a mistake in the Bush midfield. The striker rounded 2 players before passing it into an empty corner of the net 2-0 Hotspurs. Bush were all hands to the pump now and could have scored if not for the reflexes of Hotspurs stopper Niall Mc Ateer. Hotspurs gained control again and had Bush chasing shadows for a time. They made the most of their dominance when Harry Collins teed up Eoin Whelan who rifled home from the edge of the box. Harry Collins found himself on the end of a second yellow leaving Hotspurs with 10 men for the final 23 minutes. Such is the spirit amongst the lads that they stuck to their task to the man only to be undone by a bobble which saw Daryl Bergin completely miss the ball as it dropped to the Bush striker who slotted home with virtually the last kick of the game. MOTM went to the 2 goal hero Sanusi Jinadu.
