Killarney Athletic under 11 boys were away to Inter Kenmare last Saturday morning in a thrilling game which ended 3 goals apiece. Athletic never settled in the first half and were 2 goals to 1 down at half time the 1st goal coming from a bad kick out from Athletic’s keeper and the second was an own goal from Micheal Potts who recovered well to be man of the match for Athletic. Brendan Coppinger got Athletic’s 1st goal with a great header. Athletic had a better second half a great clearance off the line for Athletic was given to Inter and just when you thought it was all over a great goal by Mike Cronin made it 3 goals to 2 and less than a minute left in the game Daniel O’Brien got the equaliser for Athletic best for Athletic were Mike Potts, Mike Cronin, Mark O’Shea and Brendan Coppinger.

Killarney Athletic Abroad: Brendan Moloney has signed for Championship side Scunthorpe United on a loan deal until the end of the current season from high flying Nottingham Forest. Brendan enjoyed a successful spell with Notts County in League Two, where he made 19 appearances. The move is a step in the right direction for the Beaufort native. A move to the second tier of English football is a major leap from League Two and is an indication that Moloney is getting noticed in the world of English football. It is a welcome challenge for the Ireland Under 21 starlet and plying his trade in a division that features the likes of Newcastle and Middlesbrough should further enhance his growing reputation. Best of luck to Brendan.
Good Luck: Best of luck to the Spa football team on Sunday next. Also, Best of luck to Ronan Murphy on his upcoming trial at Nottingham Forest.
Condolences: Sincere Sympathy to the Kelleher family, Countess Road on their recent sad loss.
