Old rivals Crokes and Stacks to meet in club final as champs beaten in Meath

Some weekend for it.

With hurling taking over everywhere else, Kerry and Meath were the only counties to run off a round of their senior football championships last weekend.

In Kerry the set-up is slightly different with the county having two championships - the club and the county - and with the fixtures well ran in the south west, the club final will take place next Sunday.

That will be a meeting of old rivals Dr Crokes and Austin Stacks after the clubs topped their respective groups in the Kingdom.

Here's a round-up of the weekend's fixtures.

Kerry

After suffering a shock defeat to Rathmore last time out, Dr Crokes bounced back with a four point win over Kerins O'Rahilly's on Saturday night. AIB Club Team of the Year member Tony Brosnan was the main man in corner forward, while the always lively Jordan Kiely chipped in with his trademark goal.

He's been confined to the role of super sub in the last few years, but the 22-year-old is surely gunning for a starting berth this year. Meanwhile, Brosnan can't be far off that Kerry call-up.

It wasn't all good Crokes however, with their lightning half back Gavin White subbed off with a shoulder injury in the second half. Kingdom folk will be hoping it's not too serious with championship only around the corner.

Elsewhere, Kieran Donaghy chipped in with a point as Austin Stacks defeated Kenmare Shamrocks in the other group. Sean Quliter was the main man for the Stacks, kicking 0-4 for them.
