This Week in the Coiste na nÓg:

The week started off with a great win for our U13 White Team against Killarney Legion at home. The White Team had been playing some fantastic football of late, it was great to see this good form rewarded with a win in last Monday nights county league fixture. The final score Milltown/Castlemaine GAA 5-14 v 5-06 Legion.

On Wednesday evening the action was once again at Paddy Burke Memorial Park as our U15 Green side faced Spa in the Lee Strand County League. There was some fantastic scoring that led to a tally of 4-20 for our home side getting the win over by a score of 4-20 to 3-06 but what also shone on the night were the defensive players. The cheers for the numerous interceptions and in particular the turnovers of possession were as loud as the scores at the other end. Well done to all the players on a great performance.

Moving on to Thursday evening, our club took over 30 U11 players to play three separate games against Austin Stacks in Connolly Park, Tralee. Our U11 team played some amazing football with great skill and heart across all three games on the evening.

The amazing entertainment continued into the weekend with Friday evening seeing our U13 White Team (for their 2nd game of the week) travel to Kenmare. Trailing at the last water break our team scored 8 points between then and the end of the game to grab a great draw after an outstanding comeback.

Finally with the senior B side travelling to Kenmare the Shamrocks U9 team came in the other direction to face our Milltown/Castlemaine U9s this Sunday morning. Kenmare showed some good defensive displays but our U9s attacking skill was a good match for it. Equally our U9s shone in defensive areas.

The Sunday footballing action wasn’t finished just yet as our U13 Green side hosted Dromid/Waterville in the Lee Strand County League. Our U13 side who have played some fantastic football over the past few weeks did so again this evening as they got a great win in this penultimate game of the county league phase one. The players showed great skill and maturity beyond their years along the way to a 5-07 to 1-04 win.

A sincere thank you to all of the parents who have kept us up to date on all of our Coiste na nÓg teams fantastic performances.

Senior Round Up:

Senior: Our senior side faced Currow in the county league on Saturday evening and once again played some measured and effective attacking football. This coupled with a good defensive display led to a 2-11 to 0-10 win. The next game up is Brosna away in two weeks time in Division 3B of this year’s County League.

Junior: The Junior side started the week with a Mid Kerry League outing against An Gaeltacht at home in which the visiting team led by a solitary point at half time but a strong second half showing from our junior side saw them on their way to a 9 point victory. The final score Milltown/Castlemaine 2-16 v 2-07 An Gaeltacht.

Our junior side then finished off the week with a hard fought draw in division 6B of the county league away to Kenmare Shamrocks. An impressive 17 points equalled the 3-08 of the home side.

Minor: Our visiting team went into an early lead against South Kerry side Renard/St Marys in the first round of the Central Region last Monday, raising the green flag twice before the first water break and got another goal before half time. The goals were the difference at the halfway mark with our U17s leading 3-09 to 0-9 in Caherciveen.

Having not been beaten yet this year our minors were keen to keep going strong and despite a second half goal for Renard/St Mary’s our Milltown/Castlemaine team kept picking off their scores to keep distance between them and their opponents.

The final score: Milltown Castlemaine U17 3-18 V 1-11 Renard/St Mary’s
