With the season drawn to a close it was time to celebrate and acknowledge the huge commitment from players, parents and families in creating another very successful year for the Dingle Peninsula’s only underage soccer club, Camp Juniors FC.
At our Awards afternoon on Saturday last we had a huge crowd down to enjoy our (shortened) Sponsored Walk, our World Cup Final, our Bouncy (and slippy) Castles, our Barbecue and our Awards Presentation. With club members from Ballyferriter to Blennerville, Cloghane to Inch it was a real celebration of Youth in Sport in Kerry.
And who better to have on hand as guest of honour to make the presentations than one of Kerry’s own Sporting Heros of this year, Irish Olympic downhill skier, Conor Lyne, himself a keen soccer man.
Kerry Schoolboy/girl League awards were given to,
U11B - Group 3 Winners
U11A - Group 2 Winners
U12 - Division 1 Runner Ups
U13 - Division 2 Winners
U14 - Division 1 Winners
and player of the year awards were presented at all age levels. Club player of the year went to U15 team captain, Cathal Ferriter of Annascaul.
With great food on hand, goodies for the kids the damp weather was forgotten about. It was all smiles and celebration! A great thanks also to all our sponsors through the year for their support in creating a great season for Camp Juniors FC!!
