Gooch not ready to retire just yet


Kerry legend Colm 'Gooch' Cooper says he intends to play club football for Dr Crokes in 2018 despite his disappointing performance in Sunday's Munster final defeat to Nemo Rangers.

Cooper retired from inter-county football in April, calling time on a 15-year Kerry career that brought him four All-Ireland titles, four national league crowns and nine Munster championships.

But the 34-year-old, who won his first All-Ireland club title earlier this year when Dr Crokes beat Slaughtneil on St Patrick's Day, says he is determined to keep playing for his hometown club in Killarney.

"I'm still enjoying it, it's still fun, I'm still in reasonable shape and I still get a kick out of it," he told the Irish Examiner at a Cork IT bursary awards presentation. 

"And I still get disappointed when we lose. All those emotions are still there."

Cork's Nemo Rangers secured their 16th Munster club crown with Sunday's 0-16 to 0-11 victory at Pairc Ui Rinn over reigning All-Ireland club champions Dr Crokes, who finished the match with 14 men following Kieran O'Leary's second yellow card in the 53rd minute.

“Did I take it badly? Yeah," Cooper continued.

"One, you're disappointed when you don't perform personally, and two, when the team doesn't perform anywhere near the level needed.

"Nothing had suggested to us that we'd hit a day like Sunday. Our form had been pretty solid, but maybe the 23 months on the road caught up with us."
