Senior Team Match Report

Our senior team got off to a great start to the season away to Listowel Celtic B on Sunday 10th September. Listowel Celtic B were tough side in what turned out to be tougher weather. The home side were awarded a penalty in 12 mins and went up 1-0. We responded and were awarded a penalty of our own 5 mins later and Mikey Burke scored from the spot. We scored again shortly after the home side kicked off when our midfield duo of Graham O’Neill and John Dineen, who ran the show, recovered a loose ball and Aaron Ward tore away to leave  Mikey Burke the simple task just to put the ball in the net and he obliged by scoring his second and with us in the ascendency he banged in his third goal soon after.
Second half saw us under a bit of pressure with hurricane Irma blowing in favour of Listowel we had to contend with some high balls into our penalty area but only for some fantastic acrobatics from Jack Rodgers in goal he kept the score at 3-1.  Another penalty was awarded to Listowel they scored it to make it 3-2. With the conditions not helping matters we concede again to make that three all and momentum having swung back in the home sides favour. As Listowel made some key changes and prior to equalising, James and Paul made a couple of changes and he introduction of Nathan O’leary was instrumental, making instant impact. putting Mikey’s fourth and fifth goal on a plate for him. Having knocked the wind from the listowel sails  Arron Ward rounded off the scoring with  6th.
Well done to all today tough 1st game 3 points away from home

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
