ASDEE G AA Valentia v Asdee. Credit Union County Senior Football League Division 5, Round 12 due to be played on Saturday June 24th at Valentia did not go ahead. Asdee G A A looked for a postponement to this tie but due to a mix up in communications between both parties; Asdee thinking that they had given a w/o was well wide of the mark as Valentia have now informed the Club that they were never going to take the league points on offer and have agreed to refix the game in the first or second week in September. On behalf of the club we apologise to the Valentia Young Islanders for any inconvenience caused and hope our relations with the South Kerry Club will continue as always.
COUNTY LEAGUE. Asdee had a bye last weekend in the Credit Union County Football League Division 5 and will resume on this Saturday July15th at 7 30 pm; Round 8 with an away game to Knocknagoshel.
North Kerry U14 League Ballydonoghue 1 – 09 Asdee / Ballylongford 1 – 12 Asdee / Ballylongford followed on up last week’s success against Tarbert with yet another one score margin victory against Ballydonoghue. In contrast to the glorious sunshine of the previousMonday, this game was played in constant rain leading to tricky underfoot conditions at Coolard. There was never more than a score between the teams throughout the whole game. Ballydonoghue got off to a powerful start kicking three unanswered points. It took Asdee / Bally 10 minutes to get going before they responded with 1-1 to take the lead, Brendan Keane kicking our opening point and Oisin Healy scoring a wonderful goal. The teams traded points for the remainder of the half as Brendan Keane added a further three points along with a Liam Connolly effort to leave 2 points between the sides at half time. Half time: Ballydonoghue 0 – 6 Asdee / Bally 1 – 05 Again Ballydonoghue started the half stronger and quickly turned a two point deficit into a two point lead scoring 1-1 on the resumption.
With a greasy ball and driving rain at this stage of the game, scores were never going to be easily got. Our defence were on top for the remainder of the game with captain for the night Oran O’Neill and Mikey Hannon clearing any danger which came into the full back line. Adam Finucane was now dominant at centre back flanked excellently by youngsters Jack Hannon and Patrick Mulvihill. Asdee / Bally outscored Ballydonoghue by seven points to two for the remainder of the game with Christopher O’Donoghue, Brendan Keane and Liam Connolly kicking two each along with the closing point by Oisin Healy. This was an all-round team performance from Niall O’ Connors’ safe hands in goals to the endless work around the middle from Paddy O’Neill and Ethan McDonald to the movement of Sean O’Connor in corner forward.
Full time: Ballydonoghue 1 – 09 Asdee / Bally 1 – 12 Referee: Tom O’ Sullivan Team: Niall O’Connor Michael Hannon Oran O’Neill Patrick Mulvihill Christopher O’Donoghue (0-2) Jack Hannon Paddy O’Neill Adam Finucane Ethan McDonald Brendan Keane (0-6) Oisin Healy (1-1) Liam Connolly (0-3) Sean O’Connor Unavailable: Bobby McCarron, Paraic Fogarty, Michael Tracey & Cillian Kennelly.
