Hmmm, as pointed out in an earlier post we have serious issues within the county at present never mind the future for some of these clubs. St John's for all the good work they do must have a serious review of their under age structures and why they are losing players to other codes and the reasons for other potential players simply not interested. In terms of population surely there are 18 players in almost half of Sligo town who could and should be playing for St Johns - the same could be said of Collooney especially with the growth of population there in recent years.
Apart from the above clubs the finger of blame is pointing directly at the County Board who appear to have their head in the sand with their outdated coaching policies. We should commission a comprehensive review of our underage games programmes, the coaching staff (who appear to have a job for life) and what they actually have achieved. Schools both national and secondary as to why we have a fall off, a review of where we are NOT getting players from (urban wards, rural areas). Quite simply, there is no requirement to reinvent a wheel as the top counties in Ireland already have blueprints in place and we should be looking at the likes of Tyrone and indeed our neighbours in Mayo to replicate same.
Finally, I leave you with this thought, Sligo's population is increasing and set to increase more and yet we are set to losing clubs!

Tend to agree with Anto and not magpie as Dunne did catch him where you would expect the ball (at hip level). The player slipped into the tackle and it was certainly not a Cheap Shot.
As for the comments regarding Tourlestrane physicality, yes they have bulked up (like any other progressive squads) but it fair to say they are first and foremost a footballing team and not the hatchet men you portray.
Finally, I will leave you with this when Gaughan went off injured Tour were effectively down 5 ( all excounty) and a Minor starlet who was physically drained between a stupid schedule of University and Minor B games. No many teams in this county will run the Mayo champions down a third of their normal team
