John Mitchels 8-12 Duagh 7-2

John Mitchels u14s had a comprehensive win over Duagh in their second-round game of the North Kerry League in Ballyseedy on Tuesday night.

With a loss in their first game, it was important to get a result from this game, and so it proved, with some excellent scores.

It was a quick start with early goals from Kerri and Lisa, and with a strong lead, the coaches were able to rotate the team, bringing on players from the bench.

This disruption to our defence allowed Duagh to get in for some scores, but we looked by far the stronger side, especially in attack, and were comfortable winners.

The next game is away to Listowel Emmets on Tuesday night and we hope to fulfill our back fixture with Currow later in the week.


Sunday evening saw the final round of games in the Central League, with both U13 teams making the short journey to Na Gaeil.

The Bs were first in action and in a tight tussle were just edged out by a single point.

Great credit to both teams in a fantastic evening for football.

Despite this our Bs have already qualified for the Central League semi-final and await remaining fixtures to decide who we face.
Full time scores

John Mitchels B 2-15 Na Gaeil B 3-13

Likewise, our A’s had already qualified and with Na Gaeil having a similar record, tonights game was to decide semi-final pairings.

On a perfect evening for football both teams put up a fantastic display of football with only 5 points in it at the final whistle.

John Mitchels A 3-12 Na Gaeil A 2-10

Training continues Wednesday at 7pm while we await semi-final fixtures for the Central League.

U12 Girls

Best wishes to all our U12 girls who are starting secondary school this week and to all those who are meeting their new class teachers.

We are anxiously waiting for news on the forthcoming Tralee town league, the girls have been putting in a massive effort in preparation.

Training resumes on Wednesday night at 7 and again on Sunday morning at midday.


We had brilliant performances by both our U11 teams in Keel on Thursday evening, our older boys struggled initially against a very skilful Keel but put in a fantastic second half performance.

Our younger boys got on top early against a youthful Keel and put in their best performance of the year so far. Well done boys. We train Sunday morning at 10.30am to 11 45 am.

Upcoming fixtures:  Away to Na Gaeil Thursday 1st September @ 7pm.


Training continued this Sunday in preparation for next Sunday’s blitz for the u10s.

Tanya took the girls through an excellent warm up before they got stuck into hand passing drills.

We then went into a game which the skill on show impressed all the coaches with some excellent build up play leading to scores and some excellent defending also, well done girls.
