Kerry Seniors:
Well done to Conor Cox who made his Senior debut for Kerry last Sunday against Mayo in Round 1 of the National Football League in Castlebar. Conor played very well and scored a brilliant point in the 1st half. Unfortunately Kerry were to come out 2nd best on the day. The other Listowel Emmets man to make the panel was Brian McGuire. Kerry play Dublin in Round 2 this Sunday in Killarney.
Sigerson Cup:
Prior to making his Senior debut for Kerry Conor Cox lined out with UCC in their defeat of UUJ in the 1st Round of the Sigerson Cup last Tuesday week. Conor had a brilliant game. He converted 6 frees in total. 2 of these were driven over from massive distance in very difficult conditions. Final Score: UCC 1-14 UUJ 0-09. UCC will now play St. Mary's of Belfast in the Quarter Final.
