Moyvane Notes – 30th October, 2004


THE Moyvane seniors play Glenbeigh/Glencar in the semi-final of the County Novice championship on Sunday next at 2.30pm in Blennerville. This is a very good competition so let’s hope the lads can get the right result and get us into the final. In the event of a draw extra time will be played.

The minors were very unlucky to lose to Ballyduff in the Div. 2 final of the North Kerry league on a score of 4 – 11 to 6 – 4. This high scoring game was very enjoyable to a nice sized crowd played in excellent conditions in Coolard. Moyvane started well and by half way stage in the first half they led by 2 – 2 to 0 – 5. The goals scored by D. J. Keane and Damien Flynn. By the break they added two more goals from D. J. Keane and Chris Foley to lead on a score of 4 – 3 to 0 – 6. It looked very good at that stage but with the breeze in their favour for the second half Ballyduff set about their task well. In a ten minute spell after the break they wiped out our advantage and took the lead. Things were definitely gone against Moyvane at that stage and Ballyduff went on to stretch their lead to eight points 4 – 11 to 4 – 3. With about ten minutes left Moyvane got back into the match when Aiden Keane finished to the net. D. J. Keane added a point from a free and the in the final minute Patrick Curtin finished to the net to put the minimum between the sides. Time ran out on our gallant lads but they can hold their heads up high as they gave their very best. Kieran Stack their trainer can be very proud of his players and he had them in excellent shape for the game. Moyvane finished the game very strongly and had the stronger Ballyduff lads hanging on for dear life. As stated they gave their very best and well done to all involved with this team. I wonder when was the last time a team scored 6 – 4 and were still on the losing end. They now have the championship to look forward to so maybe they can go one better.

The under-13s had a great win over Duagh in first round of the North Kerry championship on Sun. last. This was a very exciting game that took extra time to deceide. Moyvane finished the stronger outfit and just about deserved their victory. They will probably be playing next weekend in round two so players are asked to check with their trainers regarding fixture.


Moyvane had an excellent victory in the final of Cumann na Munscoil last week. A big effort went into the competition this year and the good work done by Kevin Kiely is now showing results. Kevin is school liasion Officer for our Bord na nOg and its working very well. Also well done to the teachers for their work with the lads and the future of football in our club is on a sound footing if we can keep this effort going.
