NORTH KERRY LEAGUE. Last Saturdays North Kerry League Division 2, Round 4 game against Ballyduff due to be played in Ballyduff on Saturday evening last was called off due to the pitch been deemed unplayable. At this stage Asdee haven’t played a single game in the League. Fair enough the weather hasn’t been very kind at the minute for pitches but I think here is where the North Kerry Football Board fixtures committee should step in and try and work out something out with the clubs involved. Its amazing that the majority of games in Division 1 have been played and here we are along with other clubs in our Division with very little played. Certainly the Jack Walsh Park is definitely out of action so maybe we cant complain about other pitches; but that’s not the issue here its that if clubs don’t have a venue of their own another venue should be arranged by the home club. ( O Rahilly Park, Ballylongford was playable last weekend so why was that venue not used). With just under two weeks to the first Round of the Credit Union County League it looks at the moment that this weeks game at home to Duagh will be the only preparation the team will have. (That’s of course if it goes ahead). Where these games can be fitted in what is a packed programme of fixtures is anybodys guess at the minute.
FUNDRAISER. Asdee GAA club are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the club this year and as a result will be undertaking our first large –scale fundraising drive in a number of years and will be hosting a “Stars In Their Eyes” Fundraiser in the Community Centre on Saturday April 9th and are at the minute seeking programme sponsorship from people and businesses in the area with whom we, our members, have dealt or continue to do business with.
