Newmarket Town F.C continued their fine run of form on Saturday last by defeating defending president cup champions Knocknaheeny Celtic 2-0 away from home in the second round of the presidents cup. This was Newmarket's eighth win in nine games in all competitions.
A very impressive performance by Newmarket began as a midfield battle between the two sides which defined the game with Timothy Murphy, Shane Murphy and Colin Stack coming out on top for the away side as wingers Timmy O'Keeffe and James O'Sullivan worked tirelessly up and down the wings with Newmarket holding most of the possession for the game.
Ironically, Newmarket's dominance eventually paid off with a goal straight from a corner kick thanks to striker Alan Dugdale which took Newmarket into the break leading 1-0. Newmarket continued where they left off with Dugdale whipping in a cross for James O'Sullivan who bravely headed home to make it 2-0.
Newmarket put on a strong display overall with the defence mopping up anything Knocknaheeny could conjure up. Newmarket Town F.C now await a third round tie and look to continue their fine form in all competitions.
