Leitrim 3-12 Mayo 0-16

Seems like a lot of similar old failings for mayo - concession of goals, trying to run everything from the back despite this 20s team having good forwards.

Andy had them well drilled to foul in that last 15-20 to prevent any chance of a goal. Again something mayo could do with learning.

I'd say that was Ryan Jones of Derygonnelly and Fermanagh's influence. Andy be too honest for that kind of behaviour.

Is it top 2 or top 4 that gets through?

Top into the final. 2nd v 3rd has a semi final.

1st straight to Final
2nd and 3rd play a semi final.
An awful evening with rain and a cross wind which made any kind of good football near impossible.
Our lads fought to the end and deserved the late equaliser.
Even allowing for the conditions I doubt if either team will be troubling Jarlath with a trophy presentation.
Davy's given us a dream to cling to
We're going to bring home the SAM

That's a fair system can't have any complaints with that.


Some amount of draws though very competitive 😅

This years Mayo minors will take beating. Very very strong at u15 and u16 the last two years.

Yes U16s beat Kerry in their tournament cup final last year, high expectations on that group.
