Kerry Minors Prepare To Face Cork In Munster Final.

The Kerry LGFA Minor Team will face Cork in the 2017 Munster Minor Final at Dr. Crokes Pitch at Lewis Road, Killarney on the Bank Holiday Monday, the 1st of May at 1pm.

Kerry will be up against it, as Cork are the reigning All Ireland Minor Champions for the past two years and still possess a number of their Minor All Ireland Winning stars from 2015 and 2016. Ciara Hughes and Ciara McCarthy are two fantastic players around the middle of the field and with their entire full forward line of Sadhbh O’Leary, Saoirse Noonan and Grace Culloty available from last year’s All Ireland Final, Cork will once again fancy their chances of making it three All Ireland titles in a row.

Indeed it should be noted that Cork’s full forward line scored 2-12 between them in their All Ireland Final triumph last year against Dublin, so Kerry will need to be on full alert if they are to curb thisattacking threat and overcome their fierce rivals.

Kerry Minor LGFA team only began their preparation for this year’s campaign in mid January but have made steady progress and had a comfortable 5-13 to 1-2 victory over Waterford en route to the final.

Kerry will be fully aware of the challenge that lies in wait against Cork but will be buoyed by two All Ireland U16 titles in the past two years and this young side have committed themselves fully in preparation for a tilt at the reigning All Ireland Minor Champions. Kerry will have home advantage at their captain Siobhan Burns’ home club of Dr. Crokes for the Munster Final and will be hoping for a large crowd to show up and support them as they attempt to win Kerry’s first provincial Minor title in a number of years.

The Kerry minor team will be announced this weekend.
