Our membership is informed that in relation to our responsibility as Kerry County Champions to nominate the player who will, as Captain, lead the Kerry Senior Football team for the 2019 season the following is the position of the Dr Crokes Club as notified to the Kerry County Secretary on this date.
Dear Peter. This matter has been discussed at Officer Level here over the weekend.
Our position is as has been previously the case in the same circumstances, as follows.
We understand that until our Senior team has completed our All Ireland Club Football programme none of our players will be included in the Kerry panel (for the NFL) and therefore Kerry management will be free to nominate a player from any of our neighbouring clubs in East Kerry as Captain for any particular game.
We will be naming the player we wish to nominate as Captain for the remainder of the season immediately after we come to the end of our AIB All Ireland Club Championship programme, which may be after 16th February at the earliest, but hopefully will be after 17th March.
