Laois U-21 Championship 2017
« on: October 20, 2017, 07:20:20 PM »
Seeing as this is the very last under 21 championship to ever be played in Laois I thought it would be fitting to start a thread covering the games.
I was looking for fixtures for the weekend and came across this on the Laois Official Website.
They have Graiguecullen down to play twice tomorrow afternoon, surely this is a mistake unless they have two teams in the competition.. ??

Great fighting performance from a young Saints team last night and a right good game of football.
Have to say though it's a bit much to ask some of the Portlaoise lads to play four games in less than eight days. Leinster Club on Sunday, U21 Hurling on Tuesday, U21 Football on Friday and back to U21 Hurling on Sunday morning. And then they talk about player burn out and welfare! That's not to say arranging fixtures is easy, but surely that sort of workload can't be in anyone's best interest!

Interesting B final with the Arles/Killeen/Barrowhouse combo v the Bally boys

Could be the first step in the two Arles's getting back together again..  And not before time in my opinion.

Barrowhouse jerseys. Figure out why yourself.

I was talking to a Ballylinan man around the county semi final time and he said it's inevitable that they go back together. He also seemed to think Killeen might lose a prominent player or 2 on transfers over the winter. Hmmm.....

They wouldn't want to play in Killeen or Kilcruise jerseys as a gaels team so wearing Barrowhouse jerseys saves having to get new ones done up.
Rumours flying around as usual. The fact Donie is out of Laois panel will just add more wind to them.
