Kerry and Cork face off in the Under 21 Championship 2014-03-11 12:43:00

Kerry and Cork go head to head in the Cadburys Munster Under 21 Football Championship
quarter final on this Wednesday evening in Austin Stack Park Tralee (throw-in 7:30) and the Kerry Management team under Darragh Ó Sé, Harry O'Neill, Noel Kennelly and John Shanahan will no doubt be hoping for a change in fortunes for Kerry in this grade in what is almost an annual meeting between the sides.
Only a point has separated these two sides in both of their meetings in the last two
years and the margin of victory for either side this year will probably be just as close. The winners have the added incentive of a home tie against Limerick on Wednesday of next week. 2010 was the last time Kerry have beaten Cork at Under 21 level and alot of preparation has been put into this side again this year with a host of challenge games being played at weekends with physical work confined to mid week.
The panel of 30 players in training includes nine of last year's panel while six of last year's Minor panel have made it through to the next grade. There are three sets of brothers involved– the Keanes from Killarney Legion, the Crowleys from Templenoe and the Murphys from Kilcummin.

Entry to Austin Stack Park is by Prepaid Ticket only
Patrons attending Wednesday's Under 21 championship game should note that, as per new
GAA policy, entry will be by prepaid ticket only. Tickets may be purchased from the Munster Council Ticket Van which will be parked in the Car Park in front of Pavilion. For Health and Safety reasons the car park will be closed to parking from 5.00pm on Wednesday to facilitate the ticket van ticket sales. Patrons are asked to come in good time to avoid delays in purchasing tickets. Admission is €10 for adult and OAPs are €5 while Under 16s are free.
