Our Senior Men’s team made it three wins from three in the group stages of the Intermediate Club Championship with a deserved win over John Mitchels in Direen this Sunday afternoon . And while the win will not be filed under the classic category , the most important thing at this stage of any championship is the W. The victory saw us top the group and thereby guarantee a home venue for the quarter final. The draw for that stage was made on Sunday evening and it sees us face fellow East Kerry team Kilcummin. John Mitchels as always played with huge commitment and a defensive obdurity that needed patience which for most of the time we showed.
A busy weekend for the lads. On Saturday they participated in the Rose Cup, making a comeback after a Covid enforced absence. They all won three of their group matches where they got the better of Austin Stacks B, Listtowel Emmets and Na Gaeil. Having played John Mitchels in a titanic tussle in the County League earlier this year they knew what a tough opponent they would be and so it proved as the Tralee side emerged victorious in the Cup semi final. A great experience for the team though to play in a marvellously run tournament.
The Minor Club Championship commences on Saturday September 3rd. We have been drawn away to Beaufort. The winners progress to the Championship semi finals while the losing team are in the Shield semi final. This is a new competition that guarantees at least two games.
Hats off to Eamonn Maguire and the field committee who look after the mowing and more recently the relaying of the goalmouth. The pitches are in pristine condition, a tribute to everyone who sees after them.
EOGHAN O SULLIVAN
We wish Eoghan O Sullivan a speedy recovery from a shoulder operation he underwent this week. Part of this year’s Kerry U20 panel the injury deprived him of any game time but all going well he’ll be ready for the road again in 2023.
EAST KERRY U15s
The District side accounted for their neighbours Eoghan Ruadh in the quarter finals of the District County Championship in Rathmore last Wednesday evening. They now face Tralee District in the John Mitchels complex this Wednesday August 24th at 7pm. We have a healthy representation with Cillian Murphy, Bryan Walsh, Aindi O Cathasaigh, Oisin Fleming all starting. They are joined in the match day squad by Luke Courtney and Finan Blackwell. And amongst the management team is Nigel Shevlin. We wish the lads well in their semi final.
