Under 16 Girls

Due to no fixed schedules for past few weeks the girls looked forward to a challenge game on home ground V Abbeyfeale. We had many good plays on the ball in the first half with some super defending work being put in, plenty of turnovers coming in our favour giving the girls plenty of movement up the pitch.

Unfortunately, we weren’t converting the scores in the first half. Second half came and the girls put in a hard-fought performance showing plenty off the shoulder play and getting scores on the board. We look onto inhouse game Monday at 7pm with another challenge game hopefully midweek.

Under 15 Boys

With no suitable times available we have yet to make a decision on training and will be in touch regarding such best of luck to the lads involved with the district team going forward Na Misteallaig Abu

Under 14 Girls 

John Mitchels u14 Green team are in action away to Beale next week in the semi-final of the County League Division 6 competition. This week the team will have a challenge game against the John Mitchels u16 team and will continue training.

Under 13 Boys

Our U13 Green team had no game this week and trained really well in anticipation of our Central league semifinal next week.
Our Gold team played Dingle away from home on Wednesday evening, the boys played really well with some of our U11s players on display.
We gave Dingle a big lead in the first half with the help of a strong breeze, the second half was a more even contest and we narrowed the score to 4 points but ran out of time. Thanks to Dingle for the post game ice creams and an enjoyable evening.

Under 12 Girls 

Training continued this week for the u12s after their drawn game last week. Numbers are fantastic each week and we are glad to see new players joining. Some of the u12s will be heading up to support the Kerry senior ladies next Sunday great to see the girls getting behind the Kerry senior team.

John Mitchels & Kerins O’Rahilly’s U9 Boys put on a fantastic display of football on Sunday Morning last in Ballyseedy.
