The Senior men are waiting to play the town league final V Kerins O Rahilly’s.
Stay tunes for further updates.
Our 2nd Senior team turned out a fine performance against Castleisland in the Shield final last Friday evening. J
Just going down on a score line of Castleisland 1-15 Mitchels 2-09 Castleisland started the stronger, but Mitchels kept in touch going in at half time.
Castleisland 0-8pts Mitchels 0-4pts second half turned out to be a good flowing game from both sides, Mitchels showed true grit and heart drawing the game late in the half however we came up short in the end on a score line of 1:15 to 2:09.
We look forward to our Tralee /St. Brendan’s final against Neighbours Ballymac tbc.
Please stay tuned.
Our senior ladies played Aunascaul / Castlegregory Sunday morning in castle with ideal conditions, both teams got off to a great start exchanging points with our first score from Rachel to open our account, A/C we’re moving the ball well, but our defence held tough to keep the scoring to a minimum leaving the half time score 1-4 to 0-3.
Second half continued in whirlwind fashion with the ball going end to end with both sides guilty of Wides, but in a very entertaining game which determined semi-final places the pace was hectic.
With AC finishing stronger to come out on top on a score 3-9 to 0-08.
The senior ladies now face Ballymac next Sunday in the championship semi-finals.
Unfortunately, we sustained further injuries today in a very hectic schedule after 5 weeks in a row playing, well done ladies
More details to follow please show your support.
UNDER 17 BOYS
Defeat for our minors away to Firies on a score of 2-11 to 2-9
Down one or two with injuries, we started very well, taking the game to Firies and we found ourselves up by six and playing with purpose.
Firies though, buoyed by a goal after half time, kept at it and clawed their way back to level and then then go 3 up. We tried our best to come back but, on the night, the little luck that we needed alluded us.
Well done to Firies on their victory.
Unlucky to our mentors and boys on the night.
Training times and days to be confirmed.
Stay tuned for more information.
John Mitchels u16 ladies were in North Kerry league action on Monday evening away to Castlegregory.
The game started off at a really good tempo and there was some really smart football on show. However, due to an unfortunate coming together of players just before half-time, one of the Castlegregory players went down with an injury to the lower rib cage.
With the player unable to move, the ambulance services were called, and the fixture was abandoned.
The game will be rescheduled in due course.
John Mitchels coaches and players would like to send our best wishes to the injured party and wish her a speedy recovery.
Training continues mid-week, date and time yet tbc.

UNDER 13 BOYS
Central League 1B Champions
An epic battle in Connolly Park saw our u13 B squad defeat Stacks 2-14 to 3-4
Stacks stated the brighter with their big number 15 bursting the net after only a few minutes on the clock – we steadied ourselves and after a real tit for tat first half it was all level at half time
The second half was where we really put a stamp on proceedings and despite stacks scoring another goal, we really got into our flow scoring some lovely points
Our defence was immense and created the platform for our forwards to do their thing with some lovely movement from midfield through the lines into scoring positions.
Well done to all the boys and mentors on the night
Training continues next week (day and time tbc) with both the As and B’s still involved in the town league.
We played our second Tralee town league game against St Pats, away in Blennerville last Tuesday evening.
