Juveniles: Following a great turnout of about 50 young footballers for the under 8’s and 10’s on Sunday morning, training continues this Sunday at 11am in Tralee Sports Complex.

Please ensure that all players have gum shields and suitable footwear, such as runners or multi stud boots, for playing on Astro Turf. Anyone who missed last week and would like to come along is more than welcome and new players can register Sunday morning.

U-16: Our under 16’s have a bye this week so their first game is due to be played Monday 3rd April away to Austin Stacks. Minors: Churchill minors are at home to An Gaeltacht this Saturday at 4pm.

Seniors: Churchill suffered their second defeat of the season away to Valentia on Sunday afternoon. The old adage that goals win games was certainly the case in this encounter. Valentia had the best possible start with two early goals that gave Churchill a mountain to climb and at half time we trailed by 7 points on a scoreline of 2-07 to 0-06.

All credit is due to our lads in the way they attacked their hosts in the second half and five unanswered points reduced the margin to 2 points.

However, our attacking play left us open at the back and two late Valentia goals sealed the victory on a score of 4-11 to 0-13. Next up is a home game against Cromane next Sunday at 2pm in a game, that even this early in the season, is looking like a must win.

Strictly Come Dancing: We are holding the launch of the Strictly Come Dancing this Friday night in the Oyster Tavern, where all our dancers will be paired off for the competition.

A big thank you to Jim McGrath and the Oyster Tavern, who are the main sponsors of the Strictly event. Tickets will go onsale at the launch and are limited to 5 per person.

Interest in the event is huge and tickets are expected to sell out fast. This is an over 18’s event. More details on our dedicated Strictly Facebook page @churchillstrictly.

Best of luck to everyone doing the Fenit Coastal Cycle this Saturday in aid of Fenit School and Kerry Cancer Support. Cycle commences at 10am and registration is on the day from 8am.
