Club Notes Week 16 2024   22/04/2024

SFL Dr. Crokes 2:13 An Ghaeltacht 0:08. Our senior footballers put on a fine display of football in round 3 of the SFL away to An Ghaeltacht on Sunday last. A team mixed with youth and experience went in at the break leading 1:06 to 4 points.  Goals coming from Michael Burns and a Daithi Casey penalty helped give us a comprehensive win over our West Kerry opponents. Next up we have Glenflesk at home on Sunday 28th April. 

SHL Dr. Crokes 0:14 Crotta O'Neills 2:21. The darkest hour is just before the Dawn and so it was when we hosted the reigning County Champions in Lewis Road last Friday night. The first half of this County League Fixture does not bear much discussion other than to say it was a severe mauling for the homeside. However, we emerged for the second half a team transformed. Right from the resumption the boys in Black and Amber set about their task with vigour and determination, personified by Nathaniel Doncel who led imperiously from the back. He was supported in his efforts by fellow defenders Conor Murphy and James Murphy.  Upfront the ageless Kevin Landers and Davy Carroll led the line. Having failed miserably to mount any sort of a challenge in the opening half, we blitzed our opponents with a succession of marvellous points. The last ten minutes was pure champagne hurling featuring some outstanding team scores as our boys showed an aptitude and skill not previously seen this Season. While this was another defeat the second half performance offers hope and encouragement for the road ahead. Our next fixture is away to St. Brendans in Arfert on Friday the 26th of April.  Throw in 7pm.

LGFA Dr. Crokes 0:12 Scartaglin 3:09. Our Senior ladies went down to a well organised Scartaglin team in glorious sunshine in Cordal on Sunday morning. Next round is at home to Southern Gaels.
