Kennedy Cup Squad 2018 Press Release 1

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”.
6 clubs are represented in this year’s squad: St Brendan’s Park, Killorglin, Listowel Celtic, Killarney Athletic, Tralee Dynamos and Fenit.
The Players:
St Brendan’s Park: Colin Doody, Sean O’Connor, Kieran O’Connor, Cianan Cooney, Conor Kerins, Sean Hill, Sean O’Connell, Messiah Chirwa, Liam Carmody.
Killorglin: Tom Whittleton, Conor Spillane, Jason O’Connor, Eoghan Hassett.
Listowel Celtic: Jack Moloney, Robert Stack, Kieran O’Connell
Killarney Athletic: Mathew Horgan, Roco Rudjucan
Fenit: Eddie McCarthy
Tralee Dynamos: Andy Rogers

Places booked in the Cup’s Round 2:
John Murphy 12’s Cup: Listowel Celtic A are into the next round of the John Murphy 12’s Cup as they saw off Camp Juniors 4-2. This game was played in tough conditions and the North Kerry side needed keeper Ben Carey to be at his best to keep them in the game in the first half. Into the second half Camp Juniors took the lead but Listowel Celtic battled back to win 4-2 but again needed their keeper, who was Man of the Match, to secure the win.
Oisin Healy and Rurai Linnane both scored twice for Listowel Celtic with Lorcan O’Connor and Paudie Fitzgerald getting the Camp Juniors goals.
Healy Family 15’s Cup: It was a good day for Listowel Celtic as their 15’s have also progressed in the Healy Family 15’s Cup. Dylan Quinn certainly brought his scoring boots as he hit 4 of their goals with Darragh Carey getting the other one in a 4-2 win. Mark Manning and Evan O’Sullivan replied Dingle Bay Rovers
Extra time was needed to separate Killorglin and Ballyhar with the former going through 2-1. Killoirglin took the lead through an own goal but Peter Cosgrave replied for Ballyhar. But in extra time it was Dylan Moriarty that won the game from the penalty spot. Ballyhar are odds on from promotion for their League and proved here that they will be well capable of playing at a higher level.
Listowel Celtic 16’s Girls great run ends:
Listowel Celtic’s u16 girls great run in the National Cup came to an end as they went down 4-0 to a very strong Freebooters side from Kilkenny in the semi-finals.
League Reports:
Full series in the Moriarty’s Centra 11’s:
As usual there was very little between any of the teams in the Moriarty’s Centra 11’s with action in all 5 Division – Premier and Division 1 North and South and Division 2. Indeed there were a number of draws including between Park and Tralee Dynamos and Fenit and Castleisland. There were narrow wins for Inter Kenmare, Killorglin, Killarney Athletic, Dingle Bay Rovers, Listowel Celtic, Killarney Celtic and Fenit with good performances from Mastergeeha, Ballyhar, Iveragh United, LB Rovers and MEK.
Killarney Celtic Green go top of Girl 12 Premier:
Something had to give when the two unbeaten sides met at Celtic Park. And it was Killarney Celtic Green that took the win and the three points in a 3-0 win over Inter Kenmare Blie. Killarney Celtic Green took the lead midway through the first half through Aideen O’Brien and that was the only score of a tight first half.
Celtic Green took that momentum into the second half and doubled their advantage when Fiadhna Bradley scored following a good team move. Both sides then went all out for the next goal and it was the same Celtic player who scored to wrap up the three points and open that gap at the top of the table,.
Fenit moved up the table with a 3-1 win over Inter Kenmare White. Lilly Novak, Meave Trant and Shauna Harris got the goals for the winners who also had a big performance from Aoife O’Brien.
Honours even in 12 Premier:
It’s a score line that you don’t often see in the League but in this JK Sports 12 Premier game it ended 0-0 between The Park and Iveragh United leaving both sides where they started the day in mid-table.
Points also shared in 12 Division 1:
The top of the 12’s Division 1 is very tight and the 3-3 draw between Killarney Celtic B and Castleisland means that the Hoops now move onto 17 points and a 1 point lead over Listowel Celtic. However the North Kerry side now have a game in hand. Castleisland’s point keeps them well in touch as they remain third on 14 points. Eamon Guiney for 2 and Jack Tagney 1 scored for Celtic.
A win and a draw for Killarney sides in 13 Premier:
Killarney Celtic extended their lead at the top of the Daly’s Supervalu 13 Premier to 3 points following a 2-2 draw with St Brendan’s Park. They lead Iveragh United by 3 points but the South Kerry side are favourites to take the title as they have games in hand. It does look like it is between two as third placed Killarney Athletic lost 3-1 at home to Killorglin.
In the Celtic v Park game Luke O’Neill got both goals for the Hoops and Callum O’Sullivan and Dara Cunnane were on the mark for the Park while in the other game Stevie Gannon got 2 and Conor Hayes the other goal for Killorglin.
Inter go joint top of the 14 Girls Premier:
In the Quills Wollen Mills Inter Kenmare went joint top following a 4-2 win at Fenit. Inter took the lead early on before the home side levelled matters. But it was the Kenmare girls that finished the half the stronger hitting two quick goals to lead 3-1 at the break. The second half proved to be a tighter affair with both sides scoring once each.
For Inter Kenmare Chloe Cremin hit a hat trick and Grace Foley the fourth while Muireann O’Brien scored both goals for Fenit.
Celtic go ahead of Mastergeeha in the 15’s Premier:
With none of the top 4 sides in action it was in mid-table where the action was. Killarney Celtic went ahead of Mastergeeha after they defeated them5-1. The Celtic goals came from Daniel Okwute 2, Josh Livingston, Jackson O’Mahoney and Evan Moloney.
Second and third draw in 15’s Division 1:
Leaders Ballyhar were not in action but they got the result they wanted when second placed Tralee Dynamos and third placed Killorglin shared the points in a 2-2 draw. Raymond Sila and Patrick Moravski scored for Dynamos who also had Danny Burke and Maurice O’Connell impressing. They now trail the leaders by three points.
Fenit also added three points to their total as Eddie McCarthy got the only goal of their game against Killarney Athletic. Fenit will be happy with this as its their first League win following a number of draws.
Rattoo Rovers 9 from 9:
Rattoo Rovers have proved unbeatable all season and are now on 9 wins from 9 games after they saw off Park B 8-. Sean McGrath and Darragh Quinlan both hit hat tricks with Gavin Parker and Ronan Walsh getting the others.
Subway u12’s Inter League
In the Subway 12’s Inter League an understrength Kerry side lost out to Limerick County while they won the Development game 5-3. Josh Bowler 2, Sean Doolan, Barry Fitzmaurice and Kieran Clancy got the Kerry goals.
