OUR senior ladies have been drawn to play Galway in the All Ireland senior championship semi-final.
This game will be played on Saturday, September the 8 in a venue to be decided during the week. The other semi-final is between Cork and Monaghan. Cork hammered a very weak and understrength Donegal team at the weekend, while Monaghan defeated Mayo. Under 12s WELL done to our Under 12 players who gave a great account of themselves in Dublin where they played three games in Kilmacud Crokes grounds last weekend. The squad had been training under the Under 12 initative and reward scheme for the past five weeks or so. Over 100 players took part in the programme to develop and improve the standards of our Under 12 players in the county. Well done to Mick Hanafin, Mary Courtney and their coaches on a job well done.
Under 12 trials will take place in Connolly Park in Tralee for all clubs in North Kerry, West Kerry and tralee on Saturday next, September 1. Trials for the remaining clubs will take place on Saturday, September 8 beginning at 9am on both days. All players born on the year 2000 are eligble and must be registered with their club. These trials will give our Under 12 girls the opportunity to show their skills from which the Under 12 team will be chosen. Development Plan THE County Board are currently putting together a plan to improve the standards of ladies football at underage level in Kerry. The programme, which will be known as the Development Academy is planned to begin first week in October when all underage competitions are completed. It will involve intense skills coaching along with team play and all aspects of good playing practices.
Each session will be for two hours over six weeks with a number of games being played as part of the programme each participant will give themselves a great opportunity to impress the county selectors for inclusion on the county Under 14, Under 16 and minor panels for next year.
