Football : Newtown United Among Winners in SKNFA FA Cup Preliminary Round

Honda Newtown United is one of the SKNFA Premier League teams to have advanced to the next round of the 2023 FA Cup, after a 2-0 victory over Conaree Fireballs International last week.

Coach Anthony Nets Isaac, said the match was an opportunity to give fringe players a chance to show their skills while resting first-team players. “We try to give most of the starting team from (last week Sunday’s) game a rest, to come out and see the other guys fill in for them. I want to see what can they do when (our starters) are not around,” Isaac said.

Meanwhile, Newtown United, on the occasion of World Down Syndrome day honoured one of their very own volunteers who has Down Syndrome, Kimo. He was presented with a gift by Newtown United President Kevin Welsh and was paraded around the field to the delight of the Newtown fans.

“The community and the team seem to love Kimo very much. He has been around the Newtown team for a very, very long time and has been helping to do whatever little thing he can do for the team. If we say we want water, he’s there; he never misses a practice,” Isaac said while commending the Newtown authorities for the initiative.
