The U20 Football Development League returns after a yearís absence next month.

The competition will help teams prepare for the All-Ireland U20 Football Championship which commences in April. The League is split into five sections and will run from February 19 to March 12. There are two groups of four in the Philly McGuinness and Leo Murphy Cups.

John Kerins Cup: Laois, Kildare, Meath and Dublin

Liam OíConnor Cup: Wicklow, Offaly, Limerick and Clare

Philly McGuinness Cup: Armagh, Cavan, Westmeath, Monaghan, Fermanagh, Leitrim, Longford and Sligo

Leo Murphy Cup: Derry, Donegal, Mayo, Roscommon, Antrim, Down, Louth and Tyrone

Andrew Corden Cup: Tipperary, Waterford, Carlow and Wexford

Has anyone a list of the u20 panel please?

A lot of the resentment towards Kilcoo in Down is a mix of the supposed dirty tactics and sledging that has went on in recent years. Although can all teams in the county/country say they have no players that do this? And there would be jealousy also. A lot of the big clubs in Down are no where near matching Kilcoo for intensity determination and planning. They watch kilcoo breeze past them year in year out but they fail to come back better prepared the following year. I'd say most Down people want to see kilcoo  do well once they come out of Down. Im a Down man and I hope they win the All Ireqlnd.

There is no supposed about it tbh
In saying that the sledging and dirty tactics have stopped since Moran took control and he seems to not want that type of stuff associated with him

Providing they go on and win the All-Ireland - Where would this Kilcoo team rank against the Burren team of the 80s? Wasn't born so wouldn't know what that team of the 80s were like.

To be honest, I reckon Burren would win by a point or two but in saying that Shorty and the McGoverns must be close to 60 now.

well apart from a few clubs who had battles over the years. There was good support there yesterday and a lot of East Down intermediate and junior clubs there in support.
  No East Down Senior Clubs supporting them?What a daft statement to be making.

Where did i say that ross?

Derrygonnelly got it so wrong. The intensity of the Kilcoo warm up vs the dg was night and day. Could over hear their manager saying to keep in touch until the first water break or something to that effect (which they did) but just got the impression that the belief was lacking. It was a case of damage limitation right from the start and eventually the wheels just came off completely. Having so ceremoniously dumped Clann …ireann in the semi final I had expected them to play with a bit more purpose. Not to take away from Kilcoo who were brilliant. They patiently got on with things, their fitness and athleticism alone are the benchmark for any aspiring club. The dg players tried a few of the dark arts and didnít get so much as a reaction from the magpies. Am I right in saying a neighbour of kilcoo will be lining out for barrs?
yeah, Colm McCrickard who has moved to Cork and plays for Barr's used to play for Liatroim in Down which is practically next door to kilcoo

It will add a bit of spice to it as Liatriom and Kilcoo would not pull too well.

Who does pull well with Liatroim?  ;D
LOL true. There seems to be a marmite approach to Kilcoo in the county. Some clubs love to congraulate them while others never mention them. I find it funny.
Plenty of rumours about scummy acts perpetrated by Kilcoo lads throughout the years and Iím yet to meet anyone from Down that doesnt totally despise them as a club.   
plenty of scummy acts surely but they wouldn't be the only club to cross the line in certain instances. Because they're kilcoo they probably get highlighted more than others,  a lot of it comes down to jealousy.

Congratulations to the magpies, everyone is Down is proud of you. Kane, Dabs, McEvoy, Johnston x 3 need to come to Down. If they do we will have some team. Derrygonnely was shocking and I think about 5 teams would beat them in our county. We have a strong club set up and the games which got in the club championship show this.

Kilcoo had the measure of Derrygonnelly early on and whilst that patient, cross field toing and froing is hard to watch, it took the sting out of the Fermanagh men. I think their third point was either in the 60th minute or just after it.

Well done the Magpies and on they go to an AI semi-final.

I see a Liatroim McCrickard has a Munster club championship medal in his pocket with the Barrs..

Apparently a supporters bus heang from Liatriom to the AI semi final :)

Holy Trinity used to be slogging it out with the likes of St Malachys and St Marks in the old vocational school's format. They are now in a MacRory semi-final, our schools are fighting it out for a Z shield or something like that. We need to change our coaching in secondary schools, 91 and 94 were backboned by successful schools teams.

The Abbey was, unfortunately, missing a few players but they still lost. We need the Down schools to be performing. The Red High winning the Mageen was a massive boost for hurling here, it's just a pity that South Down turns their noses up at hurling except for a few clubs which have it as a token to keep some members quiet.

There are more basketball teams in the Newry schools than Hurling, Catholic maintained schools.. do me a favour!

We used to be envied over Ireland for the successes of our schools, we are now getting rolled over in the quarter-finals. Sean Og and COT need to pursue the coaching at the secondary level and get our coaches in here .

They have nothing to do with catholic maintained system of education . Yes they are catholic, but they are basically independent schools

The Abbey is the biggest underachievers other than Spurs this century, over to the college tonight to see what they are like.
 I think we will be supporting the Red High though, in the McLarnon, they can give us some joy. The Newry teams are half Armagh anyway.
In all seriousness, the cunty board needs to sort our coaching in secondary schools, we are being left behind. Some schools are doing nothing.

the soccer mentality

Would you care to elaborate on what you mean by that?

Point used to be a soccer town, not anymore.

Soccer Towns/Villages in Down are Newry, Banbridge, Castlewellan, Drumaness, Strangford, Crossgar. If we could change the mentality of these areas to GAA then we as a county would be in a better shape.
  More flogging to death of well discussed issues over the years.Keep up the daft posts!

Sorry for answering a question on a discussion board. I bet you are great craic on a night craic ::)
