Academy Coaches Needed

With the new Academy season having just kicked off, now would be a great time for new volunteers to join us in bringing football and fun to all.

We are currently looking for coaches to help with our U9 Academy every Saturday morning from 10am-11.30am at Christy Leahy Park .

If you would like to see where your help can make us that bit better, please contact Padraig McCannon at to start the conversation.

(U11) Div 2 ; Killorglin C 3-7 Park C ,
With barely a cloud in the sky Park FC U11 C team travelled to Killorglin.
Optimism was high but was soon dented when Killorglin went in front from a well-worked goal.  Little by little the midfield magic of Park’s trio Emmanuel, Adi and Little Sean began to pull the strings leading to three unanswered goals from Park, two from Emmanuel and one from Finn to take Park FC into a deserved 3-1 half time lead.

The second half saw Park’s defence marshalled by strong performances from William, Zach and Big Sean stretched to the limit, but sterling defence and big saves from Mattheus and Cillian meant that they were breached only twice more.  At the other end meanwhile, Emmanuel completed his hattrick, set up by Sidiptu, little Sean netted a brace laid on by Adam, while Oran netted a wondergoal direct from a free kick.

When the final whistle blew Park fully deserved their 7-3 victory.
(U13) Premier League , Park A  4-2  Listowel Celtic A ,

Listowel Celtic came to the Park on Saturday promising another tough game for our lads. The Park boys have been in outstanding form since their narrow loss in the National Cup and that continued here with a fabulous display of football.

All over the pitch Park were excellent, passing accurately and some of the link up play was wonderful.
It was from a great link up between Messiah Chirwa and Colin Doody that the first goal came after 15 minutes. Doody’s brilliant pass was taken on by Chirwa and his bullet of a shot nearly tore the net from the posts.

Park had some more chances but found themselves going in level at half time when a hopeful ball into the home square ended up being tapped into the back of the net by a lurking Listowel midfielder.

Park really raised their game in the second half although playing against a strong breeze. Cianan Cooney and Chirwa were causing havoc to the Listowel defence while Conor Kerins in midfield was having a stormer. At the back Seán Hill and Kieran O’Connor were rocks in the centre while full backs Ben Hanafin and Seàn O’Connell hardly put a foot wrong.

Three splendid goals from Cooney swung the game Parks way and they probably could have had more as Danny Jeffers had a fine header ruled out for some rough and tumble in the box. Listowel’s consolation came a few minutes from time.

A fine performance from the Park lads that needs to be repeated all the way to the end of the season.
Thanks again to parents, family and friends for the great support.

On a footnote it was amazing to walk into Christy Leahy Park at 11.15am and see such a huge crowd of players and parents enjoying themselves and the sunshine. It’s worthwhile visiting on Saturday mornings just to witness all the superb voluntary work that’s being put in. Well done everyone. Park Academy every Saturday morning at 10am.

Panel: Liam Carmody, Ben Hanafin, Samuel Aladesanusi, Sean O’Connell, Jack Kearney, Sean Hill, Danny Jeffers, Conor Kerins, Sean O’Connor, Kieran O’Connor, Messiah Chirwa, Cianan Cooney, Colin Doody, Adam Wharton and David Feeley. Josh Connolly was injured.
