Tralee To Host County Championship Double Header

Posted by

AUSTIN Stacks and St Brendan’s will take on opposition¬†in a double header for the Round 3 games of the Super Valu Senior Football County Championship in Austin Stack Park on July 12.

The evening matches will first see St Brendan’s take on Dingle at 6pm, then Stacks against Rathmore at 7.30pm.

The Rock’s opponents caused a mighty stir already this year in the championship when they defeated current champions Dr Crokes in the first round. Rathmore became the first time in four years to beat Crokes in the competition.

Stacks have been in good form though, going unbeaten so far in the league with many young players coming to the fore in this campaign.

Divisional outfit St Brendan’s, who draw their charges from five Tralee area sides, will face a very young and talented Dingle team who had a notable scalp this year when they dumped Stacks out of the club championship.

Brendan’s will be boosted by the return of Kerry hurlers John Egan,¬†Darren Dineen and Danny Collins.

In the opening round games, Stacks overcame Feale Rangers while St Brendan’s lost to Laune Rangers in Killorglin.

The fixtures for round 2 and round 3 of the championship were made last night in a meeting by the CCC.
