Kennedy Cup Squad 2018:
The 2018 Kennedy Cup is only a few months away and the build-up has really began with the naming of the 2018 Squad. Kerry who won the Cup in 2015, finished 7th in 2016 the Shield in 2017 should be in the Pot of the Top 8 seeds for the draw which will take place this Friday, March 16th at 3pm and is live on the SFAI Facebook page.
The Squad:
The Management team, under Head Coach Joe O’Reilly, have been working with these players for a number of years and following this season’s u14’s ETP have made the tough decision to name a squad of 20 players.
“This is always one of the hardest parts of the Kennedy Cup management as we have to disappoint a number of players who have put in a great effort over many months. However we will be keeping an eye on those players who were unsuccessful at this time as they could still be called in due to injuries or other issues with the named squad. And I also want to assure them that they will still have plenty of opportunities to get involved in the Kerry soccer set-up in the future”.
