Under Fourteen (2004)
Park u14 2 – 2 Killarney Athletic

This was a game where the  Park lads played some great football, put some fabulous moves together, created lots of chances but finished the game with what was a frustrating draw.

Winter was definitely in the air when the game kicked off with the Park playing with the wind. It didn’t take long for the first chance of the game coming in the 2nd minute with Sean O’Connor striking a decent effort  over the crossbar. This was the first of many shots from a lot of different players that ended up going over the bar.

On 6 minutes Sean O’Connell had an effort saved. Only 2 minutes later the first goal of the game was scored when Colin Doody won a ball of the right, played a pass to David Feely who played an excellent through ball to Cianan Cooney who’s low cross was finished from close range by Cillian Murphy. 1-0 to the Park.

It wasn’t all one way traffic though and a long ball caught out the Park defence but Liam Carmody came off his line well to clear. The Park though were still creating some excellent chances. In the 22nd minute another fine pass by David led to an excellent strike by Cianan to make it 2-0 to Park. At this stage the game was there to be finished off but a mixture of crossbar, blocks and a lack of clinical finishing meant that the game went into HT 2-0.

Killarney Athletic had contributed to an exciting game in the first half and they made the game very interesting when in the 2nd minute of the second half a shot from distance put our defence in trouble and Athletic made it 2-1. The game was now in the balance and frantic at times. Sean O’Connor had a good effort off the crossbar which would have settled things again but in the 20th minute we conceded a soft free which was well finished to make it 2-2 and a game in which we should have been well ahead had now become one that we could lose. To be fair, the Park lads reacted really well in the last 10 mins, created some excellent chances, hit the crossbar again and had two gilt edged opportunities at the death but the ball just wasn’t going in.

So it finished 2-2 in a very enjoyable, exciting and frustrating match.

Youth Team (2001)

Fai Youth Cuo 2nd RoundKillarney Celtic 1 v 2 Park FC
This cup encounter was Parks toughest test of the season so far with both sides leaving it all on the pitch that saw Park advance to the third round with another away fixture v Listowel Celtic.

Park management need and must solve their slow starts to games and conceding early goals as they found themselves trailing after only eight minutes .The game was played at a high intensity with Park more creative but guilty of not punishing Celtic with Jordan Barry ,Conor O’Brien and Aaron Ward failing to convert some golden chances.

It was Parks captain Adam Ward in the thirty fifth minute that burst into the Celtic area and was tripped ,ref pointed to the penalty spot and it was Adam that converted the spot kick sending the Killarney keeper the wrong way , all level at the break.

Killarney started the opening ten minutes of the second half strongly pushing the Park back and winning four corners in a row but Parks defense stood strong and when you have Conor Hayes the best youth keeper in the county between the posts putting in a man of the match performance this instills confidence in his team.

Parks midfield duo Adam Ward and James Sheehan started to get a hold on midfield and Park took the lead in seventy fifth minute when David Oba down the right side of midfield found Parks striker Conor O’Brien with a defense splitting pass clinically finishing thru the legs of the advancing keeper.

The final ten minutes saw Park defend stalwartly from a Celtic side pressing for an equalizer and again it was Parks custodian Conor Hayes making a top class save at full stretch tipping the ball around the post for a corner in added time to see Park thru to the third round.
