Schoolboys Girls Notes:
Tralee Trophy World 16 Premier:
With the excellent run of The Park to the National Cup final and Killarney Celtic’s players involvement with The Sem winning The All Ireland and then representing Ireland in the UK plus the Leaving Cert the last League game in the u16 Premier was delayed until this weekend.
Killarney Celtic needed to defeat The Park at Christy Leahy Park to send the League to a play off. However it was the home side that got the only goal of the game, through Fergal O’Brien, to take the title.
WFAI U16 Cup 1/4 Final:
Killarney Celtic, with a squad who are almost all underage again next year, travelled to Galway to take on the highly rated Salthill Devon team.
The home side were 2 ahead at the break but Christine Cooper pulled one back.
However the home side finished stronger and wrapped up the win with a few late goals.
The Boy Done Good:
Its now everyone that can say they saw a World Cup winner in action and even less can say they saw the scorer of the winning goal up close.
Well anyone that was in Paddy Kennedy Park a few years ago when Listowel Celtic hosted the first International held in Kerry can now say this.
On the 10th of April 2008 Mario Gotze played in an u16 German team that took on the Republic of Ireland.
Bryan Murphy, David Culhane and honorary Kerryman John Egan played in that game.
