CHRISTY Leahy Under 11 Invitational Tournament.
EIGHT teams – Kingdom Boys, Killarney Celtic A & B, Listowel Celtic, Killlorglin, Camp and the A & B side from the host The Park – enjoyed a great day of soccer at Christy Leahy Park in front of the legend himself.
And Christy had to wait a while to present the Cup, named in his honour as the final went to penalties. Killorglin were 2-0 up, but Listowel Celtic drew level. However, it was Killorglin that took the winners medals after the shoot-out.
The Plate section was named in honour of another Kerry and Park soccer legend John Joe Naughton will have been watching from the grandstand in the sky.
This game also ended two-all after extra-time with The Park taking the trophy the short distance to the trophy cabinet as they just go past Killarney Celtic Greens after the spot kicks.
The youngest Blitz
EIGHT teams of our Under 7s and Under 8s were in action in non competitive blitzes in Listowel Celtic and Killarney Celtic. All eight teams really enjoyed their day with the North Kerry hosts welcoming Camp, Park and Asdee and Killarney Celtic hosting Inter Kenmare, Killarney Athletic and Mastergeeha.
