UNDER 12 GIRLS
Mitchel's u12 Girls celebrate an unbelievable 2018
Our mighty Mitchel's girls all came together on Saturday night 23rd February in our old club grounds in Chamfers to celebrate what was a brilliant 2018 for them!!

They not only won Division 4 of the county league, they also won the Tralee District Championship and against all the odds finished off the year winning the North Kerry Championship in what was literally a David v Goliath dinger of a final against Na Gael...

These girls are a very tight knit special group of players. Sometimes a lot smaller than their opponents, they rose to every occasion and fought for every ball and for each other. They really are a credit to their parents and our club and we are so very proud of them ...

Special mention to all the parents and mentors James Donoghue and John Reidy who ensured our girls were looked after all year and who helped cultivate the special atmosphere in this group of young warriors.

Senior Team

Our senior team played strand road at home on Sunday in the last round of the Tralee Town league
Played in dry windy conditions both teams played fast open football with Strand Road leading at half time having played with the wind
Mitchel's played with the wind in the second half but strand started the better and opened up a 6 point lead , Mitchel's kept chipping away at the score and eventually a Niall Sheehy converted penalty added to an exciting last 5 mins with the game ebbing and flowing a Michael Kelliher Free levelled the game on the final whistle. This was a good open game of football and credit to both teams who fielded a young team
Well done to our Seniors who never gave up and we now look forward to our first county league game on March 10th at home to Glenbeigh
