(U14) Premier ; Tralee Dynamos A 1-2 Park A
Park FC had to dig deep to get the victory in this local derby.Park dominated the possession stats but in front of goal they were frustrated by some tame efforts and the young dynamo keeper was at his best.Dynamos battling qualities must be admired and they struck first blood twenty two minutes in when their star midfielder Sean Kennedy netted from a thirty yard free kick and they held the lead to the break.Park made a change at the break introducing Alfie Christie,now Park had dynamos pushed back deep in their own half but again guilty of poor finishing in front of goal.Parks Alfie Christie with less than eight minutes on the watch levelled the game with a low twenty five yard strike and with dynamos unsettled Parks Sean McGrath and Leon Shalamba combined to score the winner for Park in the final minute of the game.Best for Park ; James Rusk , Sean McGrath , Sebastian Vasiu , Leon Shalamba; Man of the Match ; Poga McCannon .

(U14) Div 2 ; Park Fc B 2-2 Fenit Samphires
Nice crisp morning for a game, we didn’t know what to expect from the Fenit Saphires, I had a feeling that it wasn’t going to be easy. We started of well even then tho we were short of two main player’s Harris and Tony. Park started the battle and with  both teams raring to go,there was good passing up and down the field, then after 5 minutes Padraig shot the ball but the Fenit keeper could not hold on to the ball 1-0. With 10 minutes to go in the first half Padraig on the attack again shot at the keeper , but this time the keeper was able to save but could not hold on to it and with a follow up by Jack, Jack lobbed the ball over the keeper 2-0. Half Time Score 2-0. Second half was a fast half, with Fenit making a substitution an ex Park A player Fergal O’brien made it harder for the lads with a determination to score but with our defence they didn’t make it easy for Fergal, with a one on one Fergal and Joe, Fergal shot and Joe made a great save. Eventually Fergal took a shot from outside the box and in it went 2-1. The game was yet again up and down the field, some good strikes and some unlucky misses from both sides. 3 minutes to go and Fenit went on the attack and scored 2-2. A great game from both sides well done all. Player’s: Joe, Josh, Brian, Daniel, Cillian, Samson, Padraig, Dylon, Jack,Carl (Cj), Mark, Alex, Tennyson and Thomas . Man of the Match: Padraig White. Again well done Lads.

(U12) Div 2 ; Tralee Dynamos B 0-8 Park B
A bright cold morning in Tralee saw a derby between Park under 12 B and their next door neighbours dynamos under 12 B at the Dynamos ground. Park got off to a slow start taking some time to settle. Dynamos had a lot of attacks in the first 10 minutes but Ryan Guerin was solid as ever in central defence, any shots they had were well dealt with By Huge Emmerson in goal. Attacks from Dynamos right wing were cut off by TJ Heaphy who was excellent in the left back position. With 20 minutes gone Matt Healy got the ball in the penalty area and scored a lovely goal, settling everybody’s nerves. It finished 0-1 at half time. The second half was a different story altogether. Danny Graney came on as striker replacing David (Tiny) Callaghan whose footwear let him down. Within minutes Matt again got the ball and made it 2 to park. 10 minutes later Jordan Kissane was introduced, he won the ball in midfield, played his way through and smashed in Parks third goal. A few minutes after that Robert Vassiu who was playing in mid field scored a wonderful goal. Danny Graney playing striker then scored two beautiful goals from close range making it 6 for Park. With 15 minutes to go Mark Brick took up a striking position alongside Danny and scored two great goals to make the final score 0-8. Although Leon Daly didn’t score he was outstanding on the right wing and contributed to the goals by supplying excellent crosses and won man of the match for his play. Left winger Earnan Ferris had a great game also making some great crosses. Well done to Park who now have maximum points after 5 games.
