Weekly Notes April 8th

County Club Championship - Round 1

Played in Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday 7th of April

Dr Crokes 1-14 Legion 0-16

In a game which could have gone either way as we went into the last few minutes we got over the line by scoring the last two points of the game for a one point win. Legion did have a great chance of a goal a few minutes before our equaliser and winner but we somehow managed to scramble the ball away. We have been managing to win close games over the last few years and that good habit and will to win carried us over the line once again last Sunday. There was very little between the teams throughout the game and we were happy to hear the full time whistle and collect two points.

Aided by the strong wind our opponents raced into an 0-4 to 0-1 lead at the end of the first quarter. Legion did kick some very good points for this lead but we were guilty of a number of bad wides. The teams exchanged points at the start of the second quarter. We had a crucial score in the 22nd minute, a goal by Michael Potts after a great run from inside his own half. This goal left the scores level, 1-2 to 0-5. The teams exchanged points in the next few minutes but we outscored our opponents by three points to one to give us a half time lead of 1-6 to 0-7.

The teams exchanged points on four occasions in the third quarter. We were unable to extend our two point lead as Legion answered our score of two points on two occasions in the next ten minutes. When Legion hit three points without reply to go a point in front there was no doubt but that were in trouble, we somehow went down the field for two points to win by the bare minimum. Around this period we had also somehow managed to keep the ball out of our net with a scrambled save.

Nobody knows better than our Management that this display will not win us the competition. We however will hope that we will improve after this tough competitive game against Legion. We were guilty of allowing our opponents to win nearly all their short kick outs.

U16 East Kerry League: Dr.Crokes v Beaufort

On  Wednesday evening (3/4/2019) at 6.30 in Fitzgerald's Stadium our boys U16 team started off their East kerry League campaign with a well earned and convincing win over  neighboring team Beaufort.

Playing into a stiff wind in the first half, our start was at times sluggish and slow.Beaufort began well and quickly raced into a two point lead.It took us time to settle but when we did we began to put a succession of scores on the board through a mixture of good individual and team work.As the first half wore on we began to take more  control of the game and went in at half time comfortably ahead on a scoreline of 3-5 to 0-4.

We began the second half really well and aided by a strong wind we put together  a number of important scores.Beaufort rallied from time to time throughout the half greatly helped by two well taken goals.However  as time went on we began to take full control  and with a further succession of well taken scores we finished out the game on a scoreline of 8-13 to 2-7.

Overall, the game was a very positive start for our U16 team.The older and younger players worked well together displaying at times excellent individual skill, good combined team work and executing some lovely scores. Well done Lads!!

Our next game is against Fossa on Monday evening 8th of April at 7 p/m in Lewis Rd.

Senior Hurlers

Dr Crokes Senior Hurlers played Kilbrin at Lewis Rd on Sunday morning 07-Apr in Rd 2 of the Duhallow JAHL. 

We started strongly with Michael Lenihan finding the net from a free inside the opening 2 minutes. This was followed by a point from Aaron Murphy which resulted in us leading by 3 points in the opening minutes. Kilbrin were level by the 8th minute with 3 unanswered points. In the 2nd quarter our defenders worked hard and turned over a lot of possession which allowed us to go into a 2 point lead on the 23rd min with points from play by Seanie Burchill, Mike McCarthy, and 3 more from placed balls.

A goal and point in succession from Kilbrin in the 24th minute undid a lot of the hard work, however with Aaron Murphy and Shane Lyne making life difficult for Kilbrin at centre field we clawed our way back into the game at 1:09 a piece in the 28th minute. Points coming from Rob Ryan and Mike McCarthy. A lapse of concentration in the full back line left Kilbrin in for a Goal on the stroke of half time, leaving it at 1:09 to 2:10 at the break.

Two Early Crokes points from Mike McCarthy reduced the lead to 2, however 2 quick Goals for Kilbrin, one from the penalty spot left us with a mountain to climb. We battled hard for the remainder of the game and maintained the deficit to 10 with the help of a Goal from Joe Enright and points from Rob Ryan. Final score; Crokes 2-16, Kilbrin 4:20.

Big improvement in performance from last week and plenty to be happy with but a lot of work to do to enable us reach our full potential.

Kerry County Clean Up

The eighth annual County Clean Up will take place this Saturday, 13 April meeting at Dr Crokes Club grounds and setting off at 11am to 1pm and a call has gone to individuals, clubs and communities across the county to take part and help make the county spick and span.

Last year, some 5,500 volunteers were out and about on the day with the support of Kerry County Council and KWD Recycling as well as local organisations like Kerry GAA, Kerry IFA and Kerry ICMSA.

Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper will again be lending a hand this year and is helping to promote the initiative.

The clean up day has grown in numbers year after year. 

As a county we are very reliant on our reputation for a clean and litter-free environment and everyone has a role to play. 

A record 5,500 volunteers took part in the Kerry County Clean Up in April 2018 which saw 8,000 bags of litter collected, the highest ever tally.

KWD Recycling will again provide clean up packs to clubs which register on and collection points will be designated around the county to ensure that all litter gathered is disposed of.
