It has been over a month since Colm Cooper announced his retirement from intercounty football. In the interim, the debate whether or not he can be considered the greatest of all time has raged.

It has also been revealed that the 33-year-old will be hitting our TV screens this summer, as he takes up a role as a Sunday Game pundit.

However, he has not completely hung up his boots, remaining with club side Dr Crokes following their All-Ireland success in March.

Today, Crokes opened their defence of the Kerry Senior Football Championship with a 2-14 to 0-09 victory over Mid Kerry.

Gooch was instrumental, scoring 1-4, 1-3 of which came from open play.

The eight-time All-Star was in scoring form as the Killarney outfit had too much class for their opponents.

We are likely to see more top-class displays from the former Kerry star throughout the year as the club side aim to emulate their historic season last year.

In other news, it was a mixed day for the Kingdom’s hurlers, as they failed to reach the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship quarter-final, but avoided relegation to the Christy Ring Cup.
