SENIOR CO. LEAGUE - DIV. 1:
Waterville 1-06, Dr. Crokes 4-09. Dr. Crokes made the journey south to Pairc Phroinsias Ui Chathasaigh on a stormy Saturday evening last. With a stiff wind blowing the length of the field it was always going a game of two halves favouring the team that could best adapt to the testing conditions and the home side,with the wind at their backs,pointed from over 50m through Stephen O'Dwyer inside the first minute. Crokes fielded a team consisting of vast experience mixed with some youth and after 5 minutes,débutante Jordan Kiely announced his arrival on the Senior stage when a sharp turn and run forced a great save from the home 'keeper. The defence picked up the ball but Kiely immediately won it back and Chris Brady drew on a loose ball and hit the back of the net. On ten minutes a Kiely offload released Aaron Murphy raiding up from the back and as he bared down on goal passed to an unmarked Brady who finished to the net again. Waterville fought back immediately when a long ball eluded the Crokes defence and Barry O'Dwyer finished well to the corner of the net past an advancing Alan Kelly.  Waterville added further point from long distance but Crokes showed great patience and ball retention and added two frees from close range to leave the score to trail at half time by 1-06 to 2-02. On the resumption and with the elements at their backs Crokes took total control of the game but found mastering the tricky wind difficult,kicking several wides.  The home side were struggling to get their hands on the ball and when they did,the pressure applied by the Crokes forward line was intense. Chris Brady intercepted a loose pass close to goal and a simple pass to Jordan Kiely saw him slipping the ball past Ciaran Dennehy to put Crokes in total command. The game was over as a contest in the 45th minute when an incisive Tony Brosnan run split the Waterville defence. He fed that man Kiely again  and as he passed to ball to Brady for his certain hat-trick ,a despairing Waterville hand deflected the ball into his own net. Dr. Crokes then brought on their substitutes off the bench and management will be satisfied that everyone maintained the intensity and concentration through to the end of the game which finished on a scoreline of Waterville 1-06 Dr. Crokes 4-09. Compliment must be paid to the Waterville Club for their hospitality before and after the game and the reverence paid by the minutes silence for Mai O'Leary.

SENIOR CO. LEAGUE - DIV. 4: Dr Crokes 0-13, Cordal 1-03. We secured our first win in Division 4 with a seven point victory over Cordal at Lewis Rd,thanks largely to a six point contribution from wing-back Gavin Tucker. Crokes lost Shane O'Neill to injury in the second minute, but two pointed frees from Tucker and a Cian O'Neill score put the home side three points up before Padraig Dignan put Cordal on the scoreboard in the 15th minute with a 40 meter free. Tucker converted another free for Crokes before full-forward, Philip O'Connor added a brace of points and despite losing corner-forward, Keith O'Leary to a second yellow in the 30th minute,the home side lead at half-time,0-6 to 0-1. Cordal defender, Niall O'Ciardughain scored a fine point from play in the first minute after the restart,but further points from Tucker and O'Connor pushed Crokes further ahead, before midfielder John Brosnan tapped over a point from play for Cordal, despite a fine save in the build-up by Crokes goalkeeper, David Neeson. Chris Doncel hit the bar for Crokes in the 47th minute but was alert to the rebound to raise a white flag. Cordal raised feint hopes of a comeback with a Michael Cahill goal with six minutes remaining but Doncel and half-forward Darren O'Doherty scored two fine points to see Crokes through to the final whistle,winners on a scoreline of 0-13 to 1-03.

SENIOR LADIES CO. LEAGUE - DIV. 2: Our scheduled County League fixture away to Austin Stacks on Sunday, 29th March was postponed.

LADIES FOOTBALL: Our U14 Girls had  mixed fortunes in their opening two County League fixtures. A slow start away to Beaufort in their season opener on Tuesday 24 March 2015 proved decisive as,despite a good team performance against a physically stronger opponent, their were unable to claw back two early conceded goals. In their second outing on Sunday 29 March against Na Gaeil, Crokes work-rate in the first half against a strong wind, allowed them to flourish with the elements in the second period, winning comfortably in the end. We wish a speedy recovery to young Jade Potts who suffered a broken leg in a non-football related incident,later in the day.

SENIOR CO. LEAGUE - DIV. 1:
Dr. Crokes 2-10, Milltown/Castlemaine 1-08. On Sunday last,we secured a victory in our first County League fixture of 2015 against Milltown/Castlemaine at Lewis Rd. Crokes started slowly and were 4 points down after the first quarter with Daithi Casey registering our only score of the first 20 minutes before Micheal Burns and Daithi again raised white flags to leave the score 0-5 to 0-6 at the break. Full forward Chris Brady set Crokes on their way at the start of the second half scoring 1-2 without reply. For the goal, Eoin Brosnan directed a fine diagonal ball from centre field to the edge of the small square,where it was well fielded by Kieran O'Leary before he offloaded to Brady to finish well to the roof of the net. Johnny Buckley tagged on an immediate point from a forty-five and despite losing Ambrose O'Donovan to a red card and conceding an injury time penalty,further points from Burns and Brian Looney and a last minute goal from Casey ensured the game finished 2-10 to 1-8 for the home side. Great to see Colm Cooper in the Black and Amber again, as he took his place among the substitutes for this game. Next up for the Division 1 squad is a trip to South Kerry to face Waterville this coming weekend.

SENIOR CO. LEAGUE - DIV. 4: Firies 2-12, Dr Crokes 1-15. In a season opener for our Division 4 side,we had to settle for a share of the points at Farranfore despite racing into a 1-4 to 0-0 lead after just 11 minutes. Bryan O'Shea opened the scoring and points from Jamie Doolan,Tony Brosnan and Darren O'Doherty were added to by a goal from Brosnan before Firies registered their first score of the game. But for the remainder of the first half the home side scored an additional 1-3 against just three further Crokes points from PJ Lawlor,O'Shea and Doolan, leaving the score at the break,1-4 to 1-7. Despite 6 further points from Brosnan in the second half and points from Doolan and Andrew Kenneally,Crokes were unable to secure the win as Firies eroded the halftime lead, assisted by a penalty in the 42nd minute. Indeed it was left to Brosnan to gain a draw for the away team with a 59th minute equaliser. Crokes next host Cordal in Round 2 of the County League Division 4.

CLUB SOCIAL: The Club Social and Senior Club Awards night, held at the Gleneagle on Monday, 16th March,was a great success, enjoyed by all. Presentations were made to all our representatives on Kerry All-Ireland winning squads,both Minor and Senior. Medals were presented to our Senior Club Championship, County Div 5,  Ladies Div 3, Molyneaux Cup and East Kerry Junior Championship and East Kerry Minor Championship winning squads. The Haulie Keogh Cup for Young Player of the Year was presented by Alison Keogh to Micheal Burns. Mike Sexton presented the Paddy Sexton Cup to Junior Player of the Year, P J Lawlor, Amanda Brosnan received the Ladies Player of the Year award from Catherine Keogh,Hurler of the Year went to Shane Kavanagh who received his award from Paul Downey. After a tribute from Jackie Looney, the Eddie Barry Memorial Trophy was presented by Eddies cousin,Timmy Hickey, to Supporter of the Year,Fr.

EK SENIOR LEAGUE: Dr Crokes 3-11, Rathmore 0-07. Dr Crokeswere comfortable winners against an under-strength Rathmore side,under lights at Rathbeg on Friday 6 March 2015. Mike Milner may have showed his Strictly Come Dancing skills at the INEC the night before but it was young Jordan Kiely who displayed nimble feet and no little skill in claiming two goals in a first half that Crokes dominated on a score line of 2-8 to 0-3 points. Kiely,along with his colleagues in the full-forward line,Tony Brosnan and Chris Brady, were responsible for the majority of the away sides scores, ably assisted by fine set-up play by a half-forward line of Brian Looney, Daithi Casey and Gavin O’Shea who continually played intelligent ball into a strong wind. Crokes introduced three half-time substitutes,five in all over the hour and coasted to victory with the third goal coming from Chris Brady after 37 minutes and points from Tony Brosnan,Gavin O’Shea and Jamie Doolan.

Ballydonoghue registered two further points in a five minute spell but Crokes finished the half strongly with further scores from Mikey Casey,Michael Potts and Creagh Courtney to lead at the 2-7 to 0-5 at the break. A second goal for Dylan O’Sullivan in the thirty-fifth  put  Crokes further in front, allied to a fine 45 from Billy Courtney before Ballydonoghue converted a penalty after forty 40 minutes to reduce the arrears. However further goals from Adam O’Shea(Pen) and Paul Clarke and points from the same two players and David Shaw meant the game finished , 5-11 to 1-6 to the Black and Amber.

Rathmore goalkeeper,Shane O'Callaghan then denied Jordan Kiely with a fine save in the ninth minute before further points by Jason O'Sullivan,Mikey Casey, Kiely and Darran O'Doherty stretched the Crokes lead as Rathmore struggled to establish a foothold in the game. A thirty meter free in the twenty-second minute eventually opened the Rathmore account, but two minutes later, Brosnan fisted a high dropping ball to the net to re-establish Crokes advantage. Gavin O'Shea was again the supplier for Brosnan to point five minutes before the break,sending the home side in at half-time leading, 1-7 to 0-1. Rathmore full-forward Donncha McCarthy reduced the margin with a point two minutes after the restart, before the same player raised a green flag, palming the ball to the net, following a 45 meter free which dropped short in front of the Crokes goal. Jordan Kiely from a 21 meter free settled the Crokes before Rathmore reduced the deficit with two further points. Crokes also switched David Naughton to curtail the threat Dean Fitzgerald was presenting to the Black and Amber defence and substitute Paul Clarke also started exerting an influence in the middle third for Crokes. In the forty-seventh minute,following a great turnover by Kiely, centre-back Gavin White drove into the penalty area before blasting the ball to the net, giving Rathmore goalkeeper O'Callaghan no chance. Crokes added to their lead with points from Brosnan, Cillian O'Regan and a fine score from Jason O'Leary. Rathmore did produce two more scores before the game ended with a win for Crokes.
