Lios Póil/Abhainn an Scáil/ Caisleán Ghriare 2:04 Dr Crokes 2:11

Dr Crokes are the county Under 21 Club Champions following a seven points victory over Annascaul/Lispole/Castlegregory at Lewis Road on Saturday afternoon.

A solid building is built on a solid foundation and it was Dr Crokes who achieved this, racing into 1:03 to no score by the end of the first quarter with former Kerry Minor Jordan Kiely helping himself to 1-2 of that total. . Eventually though Lios Póil/ Abhainn an Scáil/ Castlegregory did register a opening score with a point Jordan Quirke and a fight back then began and by Paddy White’s half time whistle the sides were level; 2:02 to 1:05 the visitor’s two goals coming from Castlegregory’s Keelan Dowling, the second from the penalty spot.

The second half proved to be a largely one sided affair as Dr Crokes opened up with two unanswered points, which drew a swift reply with a point courtesy from Keelan Dowling and a further point by Jordan Quirke which drew the sides level once more. This proved to be the West Kerry side’s last score however as points from Jordan Kiely, Gavin O’Shea and a goal on the stroke of time from Michael Casey cemented a seven point win for Dr Crokes.

After the game, the Tom Naughton Cup was presented to winning captain Gavin O’Shea by Stephen O’Sullivan, Assistant Secretary of the Kerry County Committee.
