LGFA U13 girls bowed out at the semi-final stage of their county championship when they came up against a much stronger Laune Rangers team on Wednesday evening last. Although the girls battled hard, they just couldn't break the Laune Rangers defence. Our young ladies showed some great skill and never gave up. This team have improved greatly from the start of the year and the future looks bright.  A big thank you to coaches Catherine & Padraig & also to the parents for the support & encouragement of our wonderful girls. 

U17 ladies qualified for the B Championship semi-final on Wednesday evening in a tough encounter against a very good Rathmore team.  Our girls started brightly with a couple of early goals but Rathmore’s “never-say-die” attitude kept them in contention until the very end.  Our defence & our super young goalie worked hard together to enable us to hold out to take the win by a single point.  Final Score Dr Crokes 7-8, Rathmore 6-10.  Well done girls & to managers Mark & Brendan  

U15 girls played their semi-final of the C Championship in Farranfore on Friday evening against a strong Firies side.

FINAL SCORE Dr Crokes 4-14, Firies 3-12.  Well done to all players, management of Danny, Leo and Teresa and our supporters for their great encouragement.
