On Wed evening we were scheduled to play Milltown in the first round of the central league.

Both teams were on the pitch and ready for action but unfortunately no referee showed up and with no suitable ref available at such short notice we agreed to play a challenge game.

It was fairly well contested with Mitchels winning by 3or 4 points, we train again on Monday evening 5-30pm with our next game against Churchill away on wed/Thurs evening fixture tbc

John Mitchels u14 girls travelled to Lewis Road the previous weekend to play Dr Crokes in Round 4 of the County league

With both teams unbeaten in this competition, it was always going to be a tough battle and so it proved, with Mitchels making the early running, but struggling to score before Crokes got an early goal and led for most of the first half.

Mitchels regrouped with Faye and Sadbh stiffening the full back line and Laoise and Nicole strong in the half back line and goals from Kerri and Ellie meant that the Tralee team were only down a point at the break.

The second half was low scoring, with defence on top, but going into the closing minutes Mitchels were a point to the good, only for a late Crokes goal to settle the outcome.

Disappointing on the night but it was a very evenly balanced game and congratulations to Dr Crokes.

Mitchels were due to play Legion at home on last Friday night but the weather proved to be too bad and both sides agreed to a postponement.

Training continues next week with notifications to be sent out to parents in relation to times and dates.


With both teams in County Finals, we are awaiting confirmed dates and locations for these games.

Provisional date for the A final is Wednesday June 29th @7pm with the B game set for Sunday time TBC.

Training continues on Monday evening.

U12 Girls

The Under 12 Girls had a County League match at home against MKL Gaels B last Wednesday evening.


Both our U11 boys put in 2 fantastic shifts on Thursday V our near neighbours Na Gaeil in Ballyseedy

We were missing a lot on bodies due to holidays but both our teams played brilliant football against 2 very skilful Na Gaeil teams.

Big thanks you to Aidan O Sullivan and all the Na Gaeil mentors. Onwards and upwards lads!!

They arrived to an immaculate pitch which had kindly been prepared for them by Club Members.

Despite having four players away the girls started strongly in the first half with some excellent goals to find their rhythm.

The girls exhibited some excellent skills including some drills which have been worked on at training.

This continued in the Second Half with all 22 Girls playing their part towards a convincing win against a tough opposition.

The Girls were cheered on by a rousing crowd in the stand which only encouraged them to victory.
