Minor Football 19.

(Oldest Posts First)

Good win for the minors last night reversing the result to Meath from last year, it was our downfall last year in the group.

Luke Swan looks a special one hes playing for the hurlers as well, good outing for Murray and Forker by all accounts.

Wouldn't mind a good crack at this, this year by far our least successful grade.

Replying To FOB:  "Comfortable enough win against Offaly, through to the quarters now!"
Think the lads made hard work of it after a healthy lead in the first half, we saved a penalty as well.

There is some talent in the bunch and a three or four I'd have high hopes for in the future. Hopefully they just have fun though, that's what this level is about for me and minding a few gems, with U20, where stuff get serious. Some of these lads are playing duel as well.

Wicklow next in the QF who have been putting up stupid Scores so far.

6 games to win Leinster against teams of very good quality at this level, whisper it quietly but the lads are better of developmentally playing death match games of good quality in Leinster then playing a couple of give mes in Munster and winning the whole sha bang, it's very telling when lads move up to senior in my opinion.

Minors are out today lads, down in Mullingar and a tough match in the curtain raiser before the Westmeath qualifier, i like the look of some of these lads may be a few gems in this team, if not a collective special bunch. Luke Swan, Fionn Murphy, Conor Archer to name a few.

Be a tough ask with likely a big Westmeath crowd there for their qualifier.

The lads pulled off a great come back down in Mullingar we were down 5 just after half time and fought back to make it all square gong into the last 10 mins, we ended up romping home 1-11 - 0-18.

Leinster final next.

Lads were beaten today in the final, were ahead at half time and Kildare turned the screw in the third quarter to build a healthy lead. To the lads credit they drew level to force extra time at the final whistle. Kildare has the better of the first half of extra time, Dublin finished the stronger.

Wouldn't be to disheartened some good players who will make senior in this team, Kildare probably had the physicality advantage and bigger lads at this age, but are a good team, deserved overall.

All not lost though, this isn't knock out anymore the provincial finalists all make the quarters now, so we play Mayo in a minor quarter final in three weeks time.

Narrowly beaten by Mayo in the minor quarter DUBLIN 2-19 MAYO 5-12 , goals absolutely killed us and for me not much between the two teams id be hopeful this group could have a good U20 campaign next year, with some exceptional players in this team. The experience wont do them any harm.
