The John Sherlock services to football award recognises the contributions made by volunteers at all levels of football to the continued success and development of the game .
News of the honour broke late last night and has been hailed as a just reward around the county .
Christy has been involved in our club right from the start back in 1971, he has held numerous Kerry posts, and he is always there for anything that the club are doing no matter how big or small it might be. St Brendans Park Fc named our home grounds after him with very good reason. A club is like a family, and Christy is the head of our family.”
Christy has been reporting on Kerry soccer for numerous years now and will have been seen at games all over the county . His weekly column in the Kerry’s Eye newspaper are read by everyone near and far and his knowledge about local and world soccer is second to none .It is with out question that without his dedication to the game Kerry Soccer would not be as popular as it is .

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the competition to predict the Highest Scoring 3-team Combo in the World Cup is Emma Quirke. Congratulations Emma! The best total was 45 goals, made up of: Germany 18, Holland 15 and Colombia 12. Our U16 player, Cormac Hurley, sold the winning ticket.
Surprisingly, the 1-2-3 finishing order of Germany, Argentina, Holland, which was our main competition, was not predicted by anybody!
The competition was a crucial fundraiser that will allow our U16 team to take part in The Dublin Cup tournament from Thursday 31st July to Sunday 3rd August.
Many thanks to everybody who bought tickets to support the U16 squad.
Congratulations to John Dineen who recently graduated from Health, Behaviour and Science at the Delaware University in Newark USA .

The Park under 16 side, who earlier this season were runners-up in the Under 16 National Cup and the Kerry u16 Cup finally got their just rewards when they defeated Killarney Celtic at Christy Leahy Park on Sunday. This was essentially the league decider as a win for Celtic Killarney Celtic would have meant a play-off with the Tralee side for whom a win or draw was sufficient to see them to see them champions. It was an excellent game of articulate football with the Park, with the aid of a stiff breeze, well on top in the opening half and with Fergal Ryan and Luke Moynihan raiding o n the wings,
