Killarney Athletic A.F.C. Notes
Killarney Athletic A.F.C. Annual 7 A Side
36th 7-A-Side Tournament
Kick-Off Monday 25th June 2012
In this summer of Euro 2012, Killarney Athletic A.F.C. is delighted to announce details of the 36th Annual 7 A Side Tournament in conjunction with sponsors Killarney Credit Union which will kick off on Monday 25th June.
This year is our thirty sixth and we will be providing competitions for Senior Men and Ladies, Over 35s and underage boys and girls.
The competitive underage event will be run over a few days, with age groups from U10s to U16s
(Closing dates for ALL entry forms other than seniors will be confirmed on the website in due course).
Along with the Premier and Reserve Cups, The Kieran Cahillane Senior Player of the Tournament Award will be on offer for the outstanding player on view, while The Johnny Heffernan Underage Player of the Tournament Award will also be up for grabs.
In an added feature of this year’s programme of events, in addition to free entry to the 2013 tournament for the Premier Cup winners, will be the prize of a full team kit from Umbro.
There will also be tickets on sale for a Grand Draw with plenty of valuable prizes up for grabs.
Entry Fee
In acknowledgement of the economic climate, we are maintaining the entry fee at last year’s amount and are hoping for a high entry across the categories.
What better way to pass the Euros summer evenings than putting it up to the cream of Kerry soccer or just giving it all in the spirit of fun with a bunch of your friends!
What To Do Next…
Application forms are available from Killarney Credit Union, Beech Rd. and Park Rd.; Scotts Bar and at
N.B. The closing date for senior entries (to be returned to the above venues) is Friday 15th June and the draw will take place on Monday evening, June 18th inScotts Bar@ 9pm.
See for entry forms, information on previous 7-A-Side Tournaments and for updates throughout the tournament.
Senior B team
The B team beat Lisselton 6 – 1 in Ferndale. Lisselton took an early lead against the run of play after Athletic missed two early chances. It wasn’t long before Athletic were level when Tommy Ryan crossed for Lucas Polyak to head in the back post. Another goal came quickly when Patrick McClure converted a free kick outside the box. Athletic at this stage were well in control of the game and after some slick passing Tommy Ryan let loose with a curling shot from outside the box and found the top corner. Pedro Martins added another to make it 4 – 1 at the break. Second half Athletic never looked in trouble and Lukas Polyak and Pedro Martins completed their braces with the pick of them from Pedro with a beautiful bicycle kick. Well done.
Under 15
Congratulations to our under 15 team who beat St Brendan’s Park in the Cup played in Killarney Celtic on Saturday giving them the double as they had already secured the league. Well done and congrats to Managers Noel White & Ger O’Shea.
