Week Ending 7th March 2010
High point of the week was the intermediate’s capture of the AHL4 league title with a final victory over O’Tooles on Wednesday night 3rd March 2010. This was a more convincing win at O'Tooles floodlit Blunden Drive than the 1-14 to 2-8 scoreline suggests. By the fifteenth minute Crokes led 1-3 to 0-1 and 1-8 to 1-3 at the short whistle. By the three quarter mark Crokes looked comfortable, 1-12 to 1-5 ahead. A quick goal and point reduced the margin to three. From then on O'Tooles pressed but, in spite of adding three points to Crokes two, could get no closer and the margin might have been greater but for the winners spurning a few point scoring chances.

Congratulations to the team and management on a deserved end to a long year that sees them promoted to AHL3 as champions.
On Saturday 6th March 2010 the under 16’s opened their Division 1 account with a 3-12 to 0-7 win over Cuala in Shanganagh. Crokes led 1-10 to 0-4 at the break and two late Barry Horan goals gilded the victory. For report see HERE
The same afternoon the two under 13 Division 1 team s had league wins against St Vincents in Glenalbyn and way to Lucan by 4-6 to 1-2 and 2-10 to 1-6 respectively. For report see HERE
The under 14’s had less fruitful outcomes. The A’s went down away to Whitehall Colmcilles in Division 1 by 1-10 to 2-2 while the B’s lost to Commercials in Silverpark. In the latter game Crokes trailed 1-3 to 0-3 at half time. An early second half goal blitz put the visitors clear. Outstanding for Crokes was Stephen O’Hurley, ably assisted by Richard Couse, Andrew McGowan and Andrew Porter.
On the morning of Sunday 7th March 2010 the intermediates hosted Naomh Olafs in a Corn Ui Laochra tie at Silverpark. The home side dominated the first half and might have gone in with a greater advantage than 0-8 to 0-3. The second period was even more one way with Crokes running out 2-16 to 0-3 winners.

At the same time the Junior A’s were away to Kevins at Dolphins Barn in an Corn Ceitinn. A good opening installment saw them 1-3 to 0-4 in front after thirty minutes. Loss in concentration allowed the hosts back into the game and run out 2-9 to 2-6 winners in spite of the best efforts of James O’Keeffe, Dara Burke, Cormac O’Keeffe, Conor Caulfield and Jonathon Healy-Hayes
The under 15’s made the trip to Marino to take on St Vincents in Division 1 of the league. After a tough battle, which saw the sides level at 0-4 apiece at the break, Crokes emerged 0-11 to 0-6 winners. Among the more influential contributors were Ronan Horgan, Michael Dwyer, Kevin O’Flanagain, Cathal Keane-Breslin and Gregory Buckley.

Bright sunshine provided the backdrop to the Junior E’s Millar Cup clash with Na Fianna in Silverpark on Sunday afternoon. The first half was relatively even with Crokes two points to the good at half time, 0-4 to 0-2. Two quick second half goals from Thomas Clarke and Gavin Hyland ended the game as a contest. Na Fianna did pull one back but that was their only score of the half as the homesters powered on for a 4-19 to 1-2 victory. Star performers included Colm Garvey, Shane O’Keeffe, Gary Melican, Thomas Clarke and Nico Salvino.
