County League, this Sunday March 19th will see our Senior Footballers go into action with an away game against Kilgarvan in Round 1 of the Credit Union County Football League Division 5, 2023. Certainly, the Club priority will have to be to get out of this Division; having laboured for too long now in this position. It is always hard to get promotion in any of the Divisions but this Division seems very difficult to get out of as it has proved for some of the so-called stronger teams down through the years.
Last year’s the team had been showing well early on in the League but as we moved on we seemed to have difficulty in fielding full strength sides; I suppose, firstly that our numbers are tight and secondly with the fact that we had so many injury problems, but no excuses we always fielded, sometimes under difficult circumstances and this is due to great work from our Trainer John Kennedy. The team have been putting in a hugh effort in training and along with a few games played in the McCarthys Insurance Brokers North Kerry League Division 2 so hopefully this will help us for the year ahead.
