Asdee were due to play away to Valentia on Saturday evening last; (June 24th) in Round 12 of the Credit Union County Football League Division 5 but due to circumstances beyond the managements control having made plenty contact with the club and would agree to any date for a refixture; they had to concede to the South Kerry men.
Asdee have been playing senior football since the mid nineties and had never suffered the embarrassment of having to give a walk over prior to this.

Asdee/Bally 3-10 Tarbert 1-14 The North Kerry League Division 2 U14 League resumed in Jack Walsh Memorial Park Asdee on Monday evening last with a wonderful game of football played by both teams in sun drenched conditions. The teams were neck and neck for all of the first half with never more than a score between them. Brendan Keane got the home team on the scoreboard with a brace of points. Oisin Healy was quickest to react to a breaking ball to drive the ball to the back of the net. He followed up on this effort with 2 more points as well as a lovely point by Liam Connolly on the stroke of half time.
Half time: Asdee / Bally 1 – 05 Tarbert 0 – 7 Tarbert came out firing on all cylinders at the start of the second half and quickly opened up a 4 point lead scoring 1-2 on the restart. Great credit due to our boys who never threw in the towel playing in the sweltering heat. Paddy O’Neill and Christopher O’Donoghue began to get a hold on midfield. Brendan Keane scored a goal to put a point between the sides. Asdee-Bally then dominated possession for a spell with points coming from Brendan Keane (2) and Patrick Mulvihill.
An excellent team move resulted in a goal for Paddy O’Neill from midfield. However, Tarbert continued to press and pick off points. Just as he did in the first half, Liam Connolly finished off the scoring with a well taken point. With a dangerous lead of 2 points, the game was hanging in the balance. Our defence held strong with Mikey Hannon dominant at full back helping Asdee-Bally hold out for the win. John Ross handled the game excellently and allowed for a sporting game to develop.
Full time: Asdee / Bally 3 – 10 Tarbert 1 – 14. Team: Niall O’Connor Michael Hannon Oran O’Neill Patrick Mulvihill (0-1) Christopher O’Donoghue Michael Tracey Paddy O’Neill (1-0) Adam Finucane Ethan McDonald Brendan Keane (1-5) Cillian Kennelly Liam Connolly (0-2) Oisin Healy (1-2) Sean O’Connor Jack Hannon Unavailable: Bobby McCarron & Paraic Fogarty.
UNDER 16s. Bally/Asdee 2-7 Tarbert/Moyvane 4-17. Our Under 16 footballers got off to a bad start to their County League Division 7 when they were defeated by a much more determined Moyvane/Tarbert in Round 1. In fairness due to lack of numbers the team had to play many of the Under 14s and fair dues to them they gave it their all even in defeat.
