THIS weekend sees more club championship action for Austin Stacks and Churchill while attentions turn again to the league for Kerins O’Rahillys and John Mitchels.

Dingle v Austin Stacks, Sunday 2.30pm
Senior Club Championship

This will be Stacks third week in a row playing the club championship as they were forced into a replay two weeks ago by Milltown/Castlemaine.

The Rock eventually got over the Mid Kerry side, but not without casualties. In the first game, Kieran Donaghy picked up a shoulder injury that potentially put him out for 10 weeks, while defensive leader Daniel Bohan fell foul of injury in the second game.

Stacks will hope another weekend of club championship action won’t see the casualties mount even further. A young Dingle side with Kerry prospect Paul Geaney within their ranks may look dangerous at home, though Stacks remain favorites.

Dromid v Churchill, Sunday 2:30pm
Junior Club Championship

After last weekend’s drawn cracker, Churchill will now be making the trip down to south Kerry to face a Dromid side that has already laid waste to Tralee area opposition in the club championship this year. This will be a massive test for Churchill as Dromid on home soil will be favourites.

Kerins O’Rahilly’s v St Micheals Foilmore, Saturday 7pm
Senior Football League Division 1

Two sides who have made their exit from the club championship in successive weeks make their return to the league. Despite the Strand Road side notching up injuries most notably to midfielder David Moran they will be expected to overcome their south Kerry counterparts at home.

John Mitchels v Skellig Rangers, Saturday 7pm
Senior Football League Division 2

Mitchels will face Skellig Rangers, who they dumped out in the first round of the intermediate championship three weeks ago. The south Kerry men will be back for revenge in Ballyseedy.
