Austin Stacks U12 Girls –
Austin Stacks U12 girls are laying down a challenge to every other U12 team in the country. Last night they scored an incredible 529 points in 20 minutes with 20 footballs from 20 metres. The players were inspired by their own club role models Marina Barry Walsh, holder of ten All Ireland medals in the 1980s/90s and current Kerry minor Aoife Dillane. In doing so, they also raised a huge sum of money for Down Syndrome Kerry and Kerry Hospice. Thanks to Kingdom Food & Wine who very kindly donated the hamper for our guess the score competition. Winner will be announced shortly.
So can any other team in the country match that total! We dare you!!!
A big thank you to coaches, Dave, Gràinne, Karen, Geno, Jimmy and Pa to Adrienne McLoughlin, John Breen and Jemma O’Connell, the parents and families who helped the “kicker-outers” and the all important adjudicators, Caroline Sugrue and Fionnuala English, who had gotten good practice watching balls sail over the bar for Tipperary in Croke Park last Sunday.
