On Wednesday 3 September last Newcestown travelled to Ballincollig to play Croke Rovers in the Under 16 county B semi final. Croke Rovers started brightly and had the first score, a point on the scoreboard inside the first few minutes. Newcestown responded with two quick goals to put them in the ascendancy. These scores did not dishearten the North Cork boys who kept in touch with some well taken scores. Newcestown led at half time 2-2 to 0-5.
The second half saw the Newcestown defence dominate and they limited Croke Rovers to a further three points. Newcestown forwards managed to add on six second half points which was enough to see them win out on a final score of 2-8 to 0-8.
