Connacht JFC 2016

(Oldest Posts First)

Anyone know what sort of squad is available for Galway game? Will any senior panellists be involved? I can remember back to 2004 when we got to the all Ireland final and drew with a strong Waterford team in Thurles and lost replay narrowly in Birr there was great excitement at those games i can remember. Always think we should have taken this competition seriously over the years as its our best opportunity to win a connacht title and our only opportunity to win an all Ireland. People may say its only a junior but we cant really afford to be picky can we?

Enda Lyons and Joe Cox are the managers of the squad, I'd imagine they have one eye on the u21 gig next year. Squad is made up mostly of this years u21 team. You also have the old boys club with James Glancy, Ray Cox and Wayne McKeown. Hopefully they do well and beat Galway. Would give a boost to a few lads who will hopefully make a step up to the senior panel in the near future.

good performance last night against a more physically imposing galway team, our failure to take two goal chances when presented left us fighting an uphill battle, the big talking point though has to be the performance of wayne mc keon at centre back who was in my opinion the outstanding player on the field, I wonder what the senior team management thought of him.

Good point. If I was Ward I'd get mckeon & Glancy to come on board. Mckeons just awesome and Glancy has been killing it recently.He brought Mcgown back to panel only a week ago so shouldnt be an issue.

definitely wouldn't be an issue and shouldn't be. they're 2 of the best we have and IF they were willing then they should be brought back.

The junior game in tuam was a good game ,young feeley and mc govern showed they are lads for the future,but it was mc keon that stood out in the team.Pity he is not with our senior squad we could do with him.

Clancy is by far the best forward in the county for years and when he is on for there not to many that can stop him,puts all into it, and mckeon is a excellent passer of the ball seem him against manor in terms shield and his passing and scoring was excellent. But ward won't ask the lads into the panel incase they play well and he will be under scrutiny as to why they ain't there all year, at least hagan had guts to bring in players to help.i wish them all best a luck tho

What evidence have you these players were never asked to join the panel?
Let's remember what chaos the bringing back of players caused two years ago.Some players who wouldn't commit were brought back and we know the consequences of this on the team and the debacle against Roscommon where only for Mulligan s display we would have been destroyed.!!

That's true aswell but I'd say if clancy was asked he definitely go back, because he do anything for Leitrim, where as mckeon might go back of asked, ya and do u think mulligan can repeat it this year on his own!! It be great if he scored 15-16 points and I hope he does

Young Jack Heslin looks like a good prospect off that team. Scored 1-2 i think from play the other night.
