UCLP; Swans front man convinced his team can be Dom-inant force this season

Saturday 20th October 2018

Newport Pagnell Town v Deeping Rangers

United Counties League Premier Division

Willen Road

K.O. 3.00pm

Newport Pagnell Town face Deeping Rangers in league action on Saturday at Willen Road looking to build on last week’s success in the FA Vase, and get some points on the board again and more importantly some confidence going as their next five league games see them play sides in the top nine of the current UCL Premier Division table. A couple of cup games break up that sequence, but the squad will be sternly tested over the next run of games which include hosting top of the league high flyers Daventry, but this week’s opponents Deeping have only played six league fixtures so far due to their involvement in various cup competitions, and if they won their games in hand would go level with Daventry at the top of the league!

Dom Lawless

This week Sports Shots caught up with front man Dominic Lawless to ask what he feels the Swans mixed start to the season has been down to:

In all honesty I have no idea, we pretty much have the same squad as last year which did so well. We have had key players out with injuries and holidays but that’s not an excuse because the squad we have are more than capable of beating any side in this division, when we have players missing those who come in are just as good replacements

With the club currently sitting fifteenth in the league and fourteen points off Daventry, does Dom feel they can still be caught?

We believe we can put a really good run together & winning becomes a habit, with the fixtures we have coming up against teams at the top end of the table; if we can take points off them just as you can already see everyone is beating anyone it could all change in a month or so. We seem to play better against the better teams in the division apart from Rugby which was a game to forget!

We asked how the team spirit is in the dressing room at this stage:

The team spirit is the best, ask most of the lads that have played for Newport and they will all tell you the same, we have a good mix of Milton Keynes & Northampton lads who have made us a better team for sure over the last couple of seasons. Yes the lads talk about the stop-start to the season, and the gaffer has called a few team meetings because it simply isn’t good enough, we know we are underachieving & letting ourselves down as well as the club and the manager, but it is a long old season

How was the Vase game last week?

A great result, we played some great football with five players missing who most would of started but others stepped up to the task. The team we played were lively and they had a few decent players that caused us problems getting in behind, it was their biggest game in the clubs history so they were bang up for it, but luckily enough we got what we deserved in the final minute of the  game

Does Dom think the FA Vase is a priority now for the team?

Of course, after having that run to the quarter-finals two seasons ago which was unbelievable and a great feeling, yes we would like to go that far again, but the league is your bread & butter so hopefully with the Vase win last Saturday that can kick us on now in both league and cup

Which players have impressed so far this term:

I would have to say Michael Lyons for me, the lads energy levels are ridiculous, he’s everywhere on the pitch giving one hundred percent week in week out. He can play in most positions and has scored a few goals this season too

How has the season been for Dom Lawless so far?

It’s been a really frustrating start for me this season, I picked up a nasty injury before pre-season where I aggravated the ligaments in my ankle which meant I missed the whole of pre-season going into the start of the campaign. When I was fit to play I was back for one game then went on holiday for ten days so then had to wait for my chance again, but I’m having my best run in the team this season now and game by game I’m feeling fitter & I’ll be back to my old self in no time. My targets always thirty plus goals and to play as many games as possible to help the team as much as I can

Finally, we asked with the league campaign warming up this month, how difficult will it be starting with Deeping this week?

Very difficult, they are all good sides up at the top so it will be very tough, but if we turn up and put a shift in from one to eleven, play for one another, then I’m confident we will be fine, there is too much quality in this squad. We just need our confidence back, hopefully the winning run starts against Deeping on Saturday! COYS

Sports Shots would like to thank Dom for his time this week

UCLP; Swans striker working hard to become vital Cog in the team

Saturday 22nd September 2018

Cogenhoe United v Newport Pagnell Town

United Counties League Premier Division

Compton Park

K.O. 3.00pm

Newport Pagnell Town travel over to Cogenhoe United on Saturday looking to kick start their season after a disappointing start to their Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division campaign, that see’s them sitting in fourteenth place with just a single win and two draws from their opening five games. Their hosts sit in ninth places with a brace of wins and draws from six but haven’t tasted league success after winning their opening two matches, so both teams will be looking to get points on the board.

Tom Liversedge

Sports Shots caught up with striker Tom Liversedge this week to ask how his own personal season had started:

Personally I feel fit and sharp, I feel I’ve started the season well performance wise. I haven’t scored as many as I would like but I am confident the goals will come sooner rather than later

How is the start affecting the squad?

We haven’t started well with results we know, but it’s still very early days. You win nothing at this time of the year but we do need to improve quickly so that we’re not giving ourselves an impossible task

Taking four points from six before last week’s defeat had seen the club look like they were back on track, what do the team need to do from here?

We haven’t got going yet but all we can do is work hard on the pitch and play for each other & for our manager, then the results will come

The brief revival ended at Desborough last week, what happened?

Saturday was frustrating as the pitch and the conditions made it difficult for any team to play. We missed a few chances in the first half but eventually got our goal in the second period. Then a poor ten minutes saw the scoreline turn on its head and we were defeated

Town won at Cogenhoe towards the end of last season, can they repeat the feat?

This week is likely to be similar to last with storm Ali around, so I’m guessing minimal football will be played. We’ll have to adjust and work hard & hopefully we can get the result we all want

Have the squad got much info on their hosts ahead of the game?

Not really no, judging on last year they’ll be a tight knit bunch that play for each other

Finally we asked Tom just how hard the squad is working on getting back up that league table:

We are working hard, it’s all we can do at the minute. Hopefully that will be rewarded and we get on a good run and climb that league!

Sports Shots would like to thank Tom for his time this week

UCLP; Pryke is Adam-ant his side will improve and challenge at the top

Saturday 1st September 2018

Newport Pagnell Town v Leicester Nirvana

United Counties League Premier Division

Willen Road

K.O. 3.00pm

Newport Pagnell Town host Leicester Nirvana on Saturday looking to build upon their first point of the season they gained two weeks previously and get their season kick started after the disappointing one point from six in their opening two games. An early exit from this season’s FA Cup has also added to the woe at Willen Road, so a win on Saturday would be most welcome although their guests have tasted success already this term, with a win, a draw & a defeat in their opening three matches.

Adam Pryke

Sports Shots this week caught up with defender Adam Pryke to reflect on the Newport opening games:

No definitely not the start we wanted, it’s been far from it! I don’t think anyone can give a single reason why we haven’t started this season as well as we should have, its been a number of things. Coming into this season off the back of a frustrating end to last year, we should have kicked on and we just haven’t. We haven’t been good enough at both ends of the pitch & that’s shown in our results but as a squad we know that. But we are only two league games in and we have plenty of time to turn it round

Did the point against Wellingborough feel like the start of the season for Town?

Our season started in the first game! The game against Wellingborough was an improvement on the first game definitely, but still not the standard we expect from ourselves. To be fair Wellingborough weren’t a bad side but we won’t be happy until we have three points under our belts, that’s when we can start to kick on and in football its funny what a win can do for things to then start clicking into place

What do Newport expect from their opponents this weekend?

In all honesty we haven’t even spoken about their form, it’s too early to worry about other teams results with people on holiday & new players etc. Leicester have always been a decent side since they’ve been in our league and its never an easy game against them, we’ve had some good battles against them over the last few years so we expect the same again this week

So how has the start of this season been for Adam?

My pre-season was good, I felt fit and played every minute, but the start of my season then has been awful, a couple of mistakes and not the level I expect of myself. I’ve just got to improve and keep working hard & put right what went wrong, for the rest of the season

We asked Adam who he see’s as being challengers for the top of the table at the end of the season:

It’s so hard to say, Rugby were apparently one of the favourites at the start, but even they’ve dropped points. Daventry have banged in a lot of goals & Deeping are always hard to beat. Saying that Yaxley won it last year & I think they were like tenth at Christmas so in this league no one knows who is going to win it until its done, but I do expect & want to see us up there too!

Finally, how far away does Adam feel his team are from challenging?

Not far, we showed last season in how close we came, just three points off promotion was really hard to take. We have to move past that now and focus on this season, sort out our form and get a run together then we’ll have every chance of challenging up at the top of the table

UCL1; Newport Pagnell Town v Sleaford preview

With the football World Cup long forgotten from this summer, the new football season begins this week-end.

Newport Pagnell Town begin their Future Lions United Counties League Division One campaign on Saturday when they host Sleaford on Saturday at Willen Road.

Darren Lynch

After missing out on promotion last year by the narrowest of margins, Town will again be amongst the favourites in the battle for promotion, and this week Sports Shots caught up with manager Darren Lynch and asked how the summer has been at the club:

Pre-season has gone quite well off the field as I’ve been able too retain the whole squad from last season apart from Luke Emery & Taylor Orosz who have both left for Daventry.

The squad are ready for the beginning of the season and have worked hard over the last couple of weeks and I’m hoping that we get off to a perfect start on Saturday against an improved Sleaford side who will be a much better opponent than last season.

We have a few missing on sat due to injuries & holidays but I’m happy with my squad and there will be no excuses!

Sports Shots would like to thank Darren for his time this week.

UCL; Newport Pagnell Town in new sponsorship deal

IT support service provider Dragon Information Systems Ltd and Newport Pagnell Town Football Club are proud to announce their brand new partnership. The new club sponsors are delighted to announce support for all future IT requirements of the football club.

From left to right: Lionel Naidoo, Managing Director: Dragon IS Ian Ford, Senior Director of Football: NPTFC Darren Lynch, 1st Team Manager: NPTFC Julie Ford, Head of Youth: NPTFC Darren Clarke, Reserves Manager: NPTFC Simon Wright, Head of Finance and Administration: Dragon IS

Following the fantastic success for the NPTFC first team over the last 2 seasons, the Swans narrowly missed out on promotion in the last campaign by just 3 points. The club are confident that with the backing of major local businesses like Dragon IS they can go one better next season by winning promotion and bringing Southern League football to the town for the first time in its history.

NPTFC was founded in 1963 and is now the second biggest club in the Milton Keynes area. It’s now a thriving club with 365 young players registered to 30 Youth teams across 13 different age groups with children from 4-18yrs able to enjoy football development opportunities with trained & qualified volunteer coaching staff.

The club also boasts 3 adult teams with its first team playing at semi-professional level in the UCL Premier League. The Swans have a strategy in place and aim to be playing 2 levels up over the next 5 years whilst keeping the focus on bringing the youth through and providing senior football opportunities at a high enough level to retain local talent.

The club recognises that the use of technology could certainly support their ambition particularly in the development of young players through recorded match playback and “inform and improve” coaching sessions.

This is where Dragon IS steps in. The company will provide the club with the necessary IT hardware, software and support. The equipment will enable coaching teams to capture live action and transfer raw video to usable footage for training purposes. And as a special treat for its fans NPTFC also plan to use the IT support to post edited match highlights, creating an opportunity to watch again and again some wonderful sporting moments across their official social media networks.

Ian Ford, head of football at NPTFC, said: “It’s always great when local businesses and sports can combine to add value for the local community and its facilities. For this latest project, Dragon IS has agreed to provide the club high spec computer equipment which will be able to cope with the elements & capacity required to produce video recordings and match analysis. We simply wouldn’t be able to afford this type of equipment on a typical non-league football club budget, so this really has made an aspiration become a reality for us.”

Lionel Naidoo, Managing Director of Dragon IS, said: “We are a local company, with a desire to work positively within our community. We were contacted by NPTFC as they needed specialist IT equipment and we offered our services so they can succeed with their plans. As the values of NPTFC underlie the business ethics of Dragon IS it was an easy decision to support them as a part of our corporate social responsibility programme.”

NPTFC encourage, develop and promote local youth to participate in sport. To enjoy and compete at various levels, to respect and value team members.

“At NPTFC we certainly appreciate the commitment Dragon IS has shown to the Club; we look forward to growing the relationship with our new partner and to capturing some amazing footage for supporters, players and officials to share,” added the Club, after Dragon IS presented the equipment to the club on the 29th May 2018.
