Under 16 National Cup Match Report

 

U16 Sketchers SFAI Cup

Our 16′s travel to Limerick city on Saturday to play Caherdavin Celtic in the National Cup.
We started the brighter with John Carmody pulling a shot just wide within the first ten minutes & Mervyn following up a few minutes later with another shot across the face of Celtics goal.
A cross from John Carmody in the twenty-sixth minute just missed both Tide & Mervyn inside the box but Terence was following up to finish at the back post.
Within a minute we had doubled our lead as a pinpoint Devon Burns kick out found Mervyn on the last defenders shoulder & once he controlled the ball it was only going one place & that was bottom corner of the net for a fantastic finish.
Celtic replied inside three minutes after we failed to clear a ball on the edge of the box & it was no more than they deserved after a number of chances including one bicycle kick which thankfully sailed over Devons crossbar. Nathan Holden played the pass of the day through the Limerick lads midfield to put John Carmody in on goal but again his shot went inches wide.
Halftime 2 – 1
After fifteen minutes of the restart Terence turned provider after a lovely pass into the box for Mervyn to side foot in. A minute later John once again had to watch his shot drift wide after rolling across the goal line & somehow stay out. Our defence was well on top with Nick & Cian rock solid while Andrew Murphy & Terence Carmody tormented Celtic with their attaching runs from full back.
The final score came on twenty nine minutes of the half when Andrew picked out Mervyn with a beauty & Mervyn finished coolly for his hat-trick.
A great team performance by all with Mervyn picking up the Man of the Match award.
Thanks to Caherdavin Celtic for the hospitality with a fine spread laid on for us afterwards in their club house.

Under 16B Match Report

Tralee Trophy World Under Div. 2

St. Brendan’s Park Fc U16B 3 : 2 Fenit Samphires

Our 16 B’s recorded their second win of the league after a hard fought win against an ex-Park loaded Fenit on Saturday evening on a score line of 3 – 2. Robert Kerins opened the scoring after twelve minutes after the Fenit keeper had made a fine double save. Straight from the tip off we won back the ball & Jacob Radulescu hit the net for our second in less than a minute. Between this & halftime we could have had three or four more but for some last gasp saves & poor finishing but Slywester Trafny eventually getting our third before the break with a neat turn & shot.
It wasn’t however all one way traffic as Fenit came close on a number of occasions but for DJ Griffin making at least three smart saves & Ryan O Sullivan clearing off the line. Liam Magee & Peter Dineen had a lot to do but dealt with the job magnificently through out. Conor Kavanagh & Ryan both played outstanding & ran themselves into the ground.
The second half was backs to the walls stuff as Fenit threw the kitchen sink at us & on fifty minutes got what they deserved with a good finish. Within ten minutes it was three two after a free deceived DJ to leave us hanging on. Despite both sides having a number of chances, some very good chances, that was the way it finished.
But for the brilliant display by Jordan Mason & also Liam Magee in centre mid in the second half & Robert Kerins who played in about four different positions we surely wouldn’t have come away with three points. At last the full time whistle blew & our lads enjoyed the win, well done to all sixteen players who gave it everything.
Man of the match: Liam Magee.

Under 16A Match Report

St. Brendan’s Park Fc U16A 7 : 2 Killarney Athletic U16A

We eventually got our league campaign off to a flying start at home to Killarney Athletic on Saturday with a 7 – 2 victory & even though the margin seemed comfortable it was anything but as the Athletic lads battled until the end with 10 men for much of the second half.
After a very slow start we managed to string some passes together before Mervyn went on a run into the box leaving all in his wake before firing an unstoppable shot to the net for the opening score after fifteen minutes. Three minutes later John Carmody let rip from outside the box for surely a contender for goal of the season to put us two up. Michael Lally then conceded a peno to give the Athletic lads a lifeline before halftime.
Another lovely move involving a Mervyn & John one-two had John score his second of the half to leave us three one up at the break.
That lifeline however lasted just five minutes after Athletics keeper tripped Terence Carmody in the box giving ref Willie Gorman no option but to show him a straight red & Terence’s peno was saved by the sub keeper. Terence had made amends five minutes later with a last touch to his brother goal bound shot to claim the goal. Devon Burns made some fine one on one saves to keep our lead intact while Nick Izehi & Cian Purcell were rocks in defence.
In the centre of the pitch Nathan Holden & Elliot Lynch were winning tackles all over the place while at left back Luke Dennehy looked very comfortable on the ball & provided plenty of options for Darragh Moriarty to drive up the wing.
TJ McMahon came off the bench at halftime to add to the scoring with a lovely finish before Athletic rattled the net for the second time with an unstoppable free from outside the box after we gave away a needless foul. Eventually John Carmody finished off his hat-track after rattling the crossbar earlier with a fine finish with his right. Not to be outdone the midfield dynamo Nathan Holden finished the scoring to leave the final score 7 – 2.
We wish TJ & Jack Kirby speedy recoveries from their injuries, get well soon lads !
Men of the match: John Carmody & Elliot Lynch.

Registration and training fees

3rd September 2017

Dear Player/Parent/Guardian

Registration & training/match fees for 2017-2018 Season

The Management Committee have decided that the Registration Fee payable per each player for the coming season will be €100, with training/match fees maintained at last season’s amount of €140, so the total cost per player for the full season is €240. We are pleased to announce that the above fees include a Park F.C. branded O’Neills triton windcheater.

The fees will be used to pay Registration and Affiliation fees with both the Kerry Schoolboys/Girls League or the Kerry District League (adults), Player Insurance, electricity bills for our floodlights, as well as Referee’s fees, kit-washes etc. The discounted Registration Fee for a second family member is €60, with discounted training fee €70.

The fees are payable by any of the three following methods:

? One instalment of €220 payable by Friday 29th September
? Three instalments of €80 payable by Friday 29th September, Friday 24th November and Friday 23rd February 2018.
? Eight instalments of €30 – only payable by Standing Order/bank transfer

Any person who wishes to pay by Standing Order/bank transfer from their Bank or Credit Union account may do so by contacting the Club Registrar – contact details below.

The discounted Registration Fee for a second family member can be paid in instalments of €40, €40 and €50 by the above dates.

Please note that the Management Committee have decided that a player is ineligible to train and therefore ineligible for selection if the Registration Fee is not paid in full by 29th September or by the above dates if paying by instalments.

A Registration night will be held for each squad during the coming weeks in advance of the first deadline on 29th September (on training nights where possible). Team Managers will advise you of the details. Two further Registration nights will be scheduled in advance of Friday 24th November and Friday 23rd February 2018, to facilitate those who wish to pay in instalments by cash/cheque.

The Club is aware that the start of the football season coincides with that time of the year which places a burden on family finances in particular, but we believe that our fees are very good value for money for the service we provide and compare favourably with those of other sporting organisations. We also hope that the instalment option will help.

Should you have any queries regarding this letter, please contact the Club Registrar at the number below (outside office hours), or any member of the Management Committee.

We look forward to your support in the season ahead.

Yours in Sport
