Beale v Asdee. The bookies will have the Seasiders down as bankers for the first meeting of the clubs in this competition; Beale who have been unsuccessful in the last two finals will be all out this year to correct this and in fairness even though they have not been firing on all cylinders this year they would be fairly confident of moving on to the next round. Asdee will have nothing to lose; as nobody would give them a chance and their record in the senior championship is not too pleasing; however going back to last years first round only a point seperated the sides as Desmonds just scrope over the line when a surprise result looked on the cards with minutes to go. Asdee just have recorded one first round victory and that was way back in 1996 when captain Kevin O Callaghan led Asdee to victory over Ballydonoghue. Without doubt Beale would hold all the aces and with players of the cailbre of Jeremy King, Sean Dee, Tom Joy, Paul Collins, Declan Bambury and James McMahon to mention just a few it would be the shock of the decade if they were to lose. In fairness to Asdee their season has not gone according to plan, struggling at the wrong end of division 5. Another factor for this was that during the past year or so some of our star players have left our club due to emigration and retirement. Along with this they have had to cope with long term injuries to 2 of our top players. It has been difficult but with the great work done by our Management team ;John Kennedy, Dan Dalton and John Doran and the help of our marvelous community we just take every game as it comes and always look forward to our next win. Can this Saturday be the day we dream of and with a  good mix of youth and experience we can give at least a good account of ourselves; Eoin Kennedy, John Doran, Padraig Ruddle and Eoin O Carroll would be some of our more established players and with the younger brigade of Kieran Kelly, Sean Keane, Con Carmody, Eoin Tydings, Darragh Keane, Martin Collins and Michael Tydings we can look forward to the future with confidence. Beale will be the favourites but expect a tough examination from St. Marys, Asdee. Full match report will appear in the North Kerry Column
