The best of luck to them in Ulster when they represent Cavan in the last Minor match in Ulster. Wouldn't it be fantastic if they get the last name on the trophy and bring it back to display to the true Cavan supporters.
John Brady has proven he has what it takes to be a good manager and the County Board should hold onto him as long as they can before another county tries to poach him."
Yeah John had it sussed in under 17 final and did not panic.

With what he had at his disposal for the U17 match the result was expected as he was not able to use the quality U16 players This was agreed several months back. With the Minors John was able to use some of the U17 players as well so he had the best available to him and it showed last weekend. I would say he has shut up most of the bedgrudgers and long may he continue to do so. He has at least two more matches and who knows maybe an All Ireland as well. Now would that be brilliant or not."
The work done to date has been outstanding and hopefully the months ahead will bring further joy to all supporters. It appears that there is good forward talent on display.

I think it really shows how managers are overrated. The under 17 s were absolutely annihilated in the final - does that make John Brady a bad manager ? The minors had two great wins so far in Uster - does that make him a good manager ? We like to build up managers as if they really had much control of whats happening on the pitch when the reality is they have very little. The real managers are on the field leading by example and encouraging and getting the best out of their team mates. Cavan seniors unfortunately don't have leaders on the field so it matters very little who is on the side line. Managers facilitate training and organise teams but I m afraid that's the limit of their effectiveness. Eugene McGee won Leinster and All-Ireland championships with a brilliant Offaly team , was then in charge of Cavan for four years and won absolutely nothing or never looked like winning anything.
There are numerous examples of this in all sports. If a team can make a break through and win something , then momentum can be created and the best players get on board and the manager becomes less and less important.
So good luck , John Brady in the Ulster final but I m afraid its very little about you !

Won an U21 title with an amalgamation a few years ago as well With Lavey and KIlinkere I think it was so has won something. If you go back to looking for a new manager for the senior posts names that were bantered won nothing most of them. John Young thats with him knows how to win also.

Thank you for that information this adds to my argument that both John's are proven winner. I wish them well with their team in Ulster and the all Ireland series.

Are there a lot of quality Under 16's this year? Any names stand out?
It is very surprising that the Under 16 management have chosen not to defend the Gerry Reilly cup this year in light of the fact that next year is the first year that Minor reverts to Under 17 I would have thought that this would give 3 or 4 great competitive matches to this group of players.
A baffling decision.

Can anybody tell me how many players have played Full Back and Centre Half back during the Ulster Minor League and Championship?
Now I don't mean they wore Number 3 and 6 but they played in these positions

Refreshing to see a Cavan team without a blanket defensive mindset, playing to their strengths attacking with speed and accuracy. Not so refreshing to see the usual management bashing in this county even when the team is an Ulster final playing flowing football. Good luck to Team and Management in Ulster Final hope they bring it home and these talented footballers are nurtured to enhance the senior team in the coming years.

Paddy Meade played full back in all league and c'ship games. With regard to no 6 centre half back the following players played this position in league and c'ship - Philip Rogers; Kevin Hendrick; Danny Cusack; Oisin Kiernan; Cormac Timoney and Evaan Fortune.

The reason the fullback was out is because he broke his wrist or arm not sure he did not play in the U17 final.

These good minor teams are most of the 3 in a row Gerry Reilly cup winning teams which leads me to the question as to why we have no U16 team in this years competition.... Does anyone know why we are not takeing part as it has served us well in recent years....?
