Warwickshire 2013

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


My understanding is that there were no spectators only the subs and management!

Interesting Mitchells did not even have the Garvey lad. Is it true that it was simply a case of 1 man at full forward against a few boys trying to handle him.

My ear to the ground tells me Macs will definately need to buck up to get anything from the championship.

As a neutral I was just delighted to hear Macs lost. Hopefully sign of things to come!

Warwickshire GAA will be the winner.

O and BTW good luck to the Mac 12, management and few infiltrators in the county match this weekend. Great champion prep for yous lot

The big match at the weekend did seem to attract a load of cars parked, but not many people watching the big SFL match between Macs and Mitchell's.

Macs really missed their talisman for the last 20 years Ossie Bennett(has he now retired?) as they do not have the same focus, and his passing ability and decision making were solely missed and the injury to Anthony Moriarty in the second half was another major blow.
Overall Mitchell's deserved their victory with Chris Brough scoring some nice points in Jo Lo's absence. BUT to beat Macs and to a win a SFC title for the first time in over 20 years is still going to be a major ask - I would say - as you can never write off the Macs with their outstanding SFC record since 1995.

The SFC group containing JM Macs Casements and Leicester will be very close to call but I predict JM and Macs to qualify for the Semi Finals.

Big game at the bottom of the table tomorrow in Wolverhampton.
St. Marys v Northampton interesting to see how it turns out. Would be a good opportunity for the county manager to go and have a look to see if any lads are worth bringing along on Sunday.

May well be moving to the Midlands later this year and wondering who would be a good club to join. Ideally would like a club that gives English born players a fair crack. Would probably be based in Tamworth.

Good win for jm Sunday.. Well deserved.. Would seriously have to question the macs management though with selection.. The whole macs team looked lost playing out of position.. Would be hard to back against Mitchell's winning it know with so many decent footballers at there disposal.. I see j lo struggling to get back in to that team.. Any news on warwickshire

Mitchels will win the lot far too strong for everyone at the moment, Garvey would have added to that scoreline certainly. Macs will need to improve, can't see the others making any impression

EGB vs Casements tonight, another tough one to call. Any predictions?

Thanks Takethehit, I came across one of their former players the other week, a Kildare forward called French - a true GAA man.

Macs, Macs where are "yous". Have yous all gone on a summer retreat or something?
I wonder did Mitchels and Barnabus actually deliberately get their game called off to allow yous to get carried away with yourselves.....
If so "genius".
Come on yous lot, surely yous have something to say even if it is only that "I am supposed to be a Mitchels Man"......
Football Abu last weekend!

I see that there are a couple of hurling games down to be played this weekend. Looks as though rumours are true and Liverpool and Leeds will be competing above in Lancashire as opposed to Warwickshire this year.

Are they de facto championship matches or just league games? First round of hurling championship was down for the last week of july in the master fixture list. They hardly brought it forward without given due notice to the clubs and only announcing the fixtures less than a week before.

I think Mitchels hurling club have their dinner dance this weekend as well

Heard that Marys beat Sons of Erin last night to pull them back into the relegation mix. Bit tough to ask a side to make a 100 mile+ round trip on a Wednesday evening.

Barnanbas beat NP last night but made hard work of it

If you're based in Tamworth you aren't actually too far away from EGB (Erdington) or James Connollys (Handsworth/Great Barr), likewise Coventry is closer than Nottingham for you I think. James Connollys have a lot of young english born lads who have represented the county at under age, also I think Four Masters from Coventry have a lot of english born players.

In Coventry your best option would be Roger Casements who play in the Senior League and had 13 English born lads in the starting team in last years Senior Championship.
