The girls had a much-deserved rest this week from training due to the Kerry quarter finals. Training commences on Wednesday 29th at 6.30 sharp. We hope to see you all then New players are always welcome.

U12 Girls

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

U14 Girls

John Mitchel’s 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 Mitchel’s making the early running, but struggling to score before Crokes got an early goal and led for most of the first half.

Mitchel’s 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 defense on top, but going into the closing minutes Mitchel’s 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. Mitchel’s 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.

U16 Girls

Training for U16 ladies continues this Monday evening from 6.00-7.00pm in preparation for upcoming North Kerry League All newcomers welcome.

Under 9 Boys

Under 13 boys

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.

Under 15 boys

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 Mitchel’s 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
