That all costs money.

Is that the issue?

Surely to God it can't cost that much to run a development squad. What would you need? We have all the facilities needed: Pitches, gym, qualified S+C people. The spend needed couldn't be big. The biggest requirements are time inputted and effort. If we are short on those we are in bother.

The reality is that nearly all hurling counties are training their 2022 u14 teams since before Christmas,they are together twice a week gym work ball wall tactics nutrition etc

In a lot of cases they are being looked after by ambitious managers with designs on bringing them through to minor and possibly beyond

Laois started trials in March/April at u14 to pick a squad without a management team in place to watch the trials

Only eventually got a manager nearly a month after the trials were over, the clubs then sent in names of players which meant the trials really were for nought and they started to train in May

And we expect our 14ís to compete?

That's fairly grim.... And it isn't a financial issue either. It's an organisational disaster and is very unfair on the players.

Laois man:
Dublin have a new senior hurling manager I see aswell. And still not a word from our country  board and qfinals on Sunday.???

clonadmad:
Laois play Galway White which is their third team in the semifinal of the Arrabawn u15 Plate Competition on Saturday

Throw in is for 12 in Toomevara

The plate is the third tier competition in the Arrabawn which is the A u15 competition

Laois donít have a team in any of the 3 levels of the John Doyle Cup/Shield or Plate which is the B u15 competition
