Co League 2018 – Round 8
We played Dr Crokes away last Saturday evening in Round 8 of the Senior County League. This proved to be a difficult assignment and Dr Crokes were victorious on a scoreline of
4-17 to John Mitchels 0-11.
The scoreline did not reflect the brave and determined display that the John Mitchels team gave.

John Mitchels U8 boys and girls were back in full swing this weekend after our break for the Munster final. Our session started off with some stretching followed by a bit of running and wheelbarrow race which was great fun and then it was game time and it’s great to see all the training paying off with some great displays of football. Don’t forget folks our juvenile training academy is on every Sunday morning at John Mitchels from 10.30am to 12.00pm we have a very friendly atmosphere & our emphasis is on fun games and exercise first.  All newcomers welcome thank you.

U 10s:
We had a good training session on Sunday and it was a pleasant temperature. Training was hard with Fionnan, Joey, Eva and Cody putting in a solid effort. Eva, Daniel, Eanna, Jack, Tadhg and the rest of the players worked hard on their skills and showed great improvement. We have a big week ahead with Go Games in our own pitch on Wednesday – watch out for the text. On next Sunday we are playing a blitz in Milltown which will be on most of the day (bring lunch and water), text will be sent out during the week. Remember for all training sessions and games you must have your GUM SHIELDS.
