The juniors completed a double last week when on Tuesday night they defeated Ballydonoghue in the North Kerry league after a very good game in Moyvane, and on Friday night they overcame Tarbert in the Urban League in a close game in Knockanure. On Friday night they play Clounmacon in Clounmacon at 8pm in the Urban League, and on Tuesday night they travel to Mountcoal to take on St. Senan’s in the North Kerry League. That game is timed for 8pm.

Moyvane under-14 are playing a back game with Asdee on this Friday night in Asdee at 8pm. A bus will leave the corner at 7.30. They are also playing Duagh in Moyvane on Wednesday night in the North Kerry League at 8pm. All players are asked to be in the dressing rooms at 7.40pm.

Moyvane under-12 have played all their games in the County League and now must wait for the regrouping for our next round of games. More details next week. Moyvane seniors were defeated by Castlegregory in the Intermediate Championship on Sunday last on a score of Moyvane 0-11, Castlegregory 1-9. This was a setback for us as we had hoped for a good run in the competition. They came very close to pulling victory. Castlegregory are a very strong team and will go a long way. County League next game will be on the weekend June 10 against Tarbert. More details next week.

Moyvane under-10 played Tarbert in a very entertaining under-10 game. Both sides can look forward to good times as the two clubs had big panels and everybody had a great time.
