Title: U17 Football Championship
Post by: Itchy on May 04, 2017, 09:33:30 PM
Anyone have any interest in this? Ulster is starting this weekend, not sure about the other provinces. One good thing is that it can be run off earlier as none of the players should be doing final year school exams.

Connacht playing it as curtain raisers with Senior.
However I think the final is set for the Saturday of CF weekend to allow the minor (u18) final be played with the Senior.

Connacht are having a minor championship and a u17 championship this year.
That's happening everywhere else too.

What are you talking about!  In six of the counties the players will be beginning their AS and GCSE exams on 11th May and some AS units will have begun this week.

Yet again the future of young fellas will have been affected by overdone training schedules leaving them unable to put in the full effort needed in preparation for such a marathon of exams at GCSE and AS levels and then to bring in the games throughout the exam season running from the beginning of May through to the end of June.

Serious scoring by Cork there - 11-42 in 2 games is some haul.

Surely a decent chance Kerry's recent dominance at underage in Munster might come to an end?

Think everyone should support this competition as much as they can - Its unlucky for these lads falling between the new age group cracks but if its well supported it should be a good competition to get a run in.

Limerick,Waterford probably very poor and getting no competitive game before facing Kerry isn't ideal preparation.

In this years comp the bigger counties will certainly dominate as the others wont be able to combine an U17 and Minor squad. Expect Donegal and Tyrone to dominate Ulster.

Yeah the two teams were  surely not great - Waterford especially but that's still a fairly massive haul of a score to be putting up over two games.

Cork at least had 2 games (however uncompetitive) compared to Kerry's 1 at this level and scored well in both so you'd think there's surely a decent chance of them putting it up to Kerry.

Didn't know that. Down south u18s were always badly effected by leaving cert. Now most u17s will be one year out from the leaving.

In NI, we have public exams or their modular components every year for the last four years of secondary school.  So, moving to u17 is no help, it just makes it worse as it destroys GCSE prospects for all as GCSEs are taken by every student and training takes up vital revision time unlike A levels taken by fewer.

Yeah but smaller counties aren't going to run two full squads simultaneously at a high level. The better players will be in the minors as it takes precedent.

Yep.  Across the ability range taking from 5 to 11 subjects in Year 11 and 12 for GCSE and then from 2 to 4 subjects at A level and BTEC level in Years 13 and 14.

In NI, the GCSE subjects are now fully modularised over 2 years, so young people at 15/16 are taking exams throughout the two year period, all count towards the GCSE results at the end of 2 years.  On top of these there is coursework which has been moved into the school and completed under exam conditions, so an expansion of the number of exams as it must be prepared prior to completion in school.  In Years 13 and 14, the modular assessments continue in all subjects and are regular during this time.  It is a much different system from RoI which seems still to be end of year exams for Inter and Leaving.

Is there an answer? No.  It is made worse by many of the same boys playing MacRory/MacLarnon Cup games from September to March and training for both school and county.

And this nonsense if level after extra time

Quote
It is on a pilot basis but the Special U17 Football and Hurling Competitions in 2017 and the new U20 Football Championship in 2018 will require to finish ‘on the day’. 

If teams still can’t be separated after two periods of extra time, it moves to the free-taking competition with five nominated free-takers, chosen from those who have played at some stage in the previous 100 minutes, taking shots from the 65-metre line. 

For the football competitions, frees will be taken from the 45-metre line.  If the teams are still deadlocked after five shots it moves to ‘sudden death’ until there is a winner. 

The first sudden death free is taken by the player who took the first free, and the sudden death element will continue until such time as there is a definite outcome.

There isn’t the same level of drama attached to a penalty shootout because it all hinges on one player - the freetaker. Frees will be taken for points only, with no goalkeeper or defenders facing the free- takers, but the GAA missed a trick there. 

If the goalkeeper was in play, and the free was going a foot or two over the crossbar, stopping the point - which many go alkeepers are well capable off - would have added to the sense of excitement

Yes because "Ugly half-time tunnel scenes and a mass melee at the final whistle involving players and members of the backroom teams" gives a vivid picture of who the instigators were and whether it was pushing or punching. They couldn't be more vague if they called it a shemozzle.

Well you seem to have came to a conclusion without any knowledge on what actually took place.

Big win for Tyrone over Cavan this afternoon in the Ulster final. Final score was 3-15 to 0-06. I think there were 10 different scorers.

What's the story in the AI series? Does it follow the senior structure i.e. Tyrone due to play the Leinster reps in the Semi?

Galway beat Mayo 2-7 to 0-5 today.

Report from the ConnachtGAA.ie website

Galway advanced to the final of the Connacht U17 Championship against either Leitrim or Roscommon after overcoming Mayo 2-7 to 0-5 in terrible conditions in Salthill on Sunday. In fairness to both teams, the swirling wind and driving rain made football almost impossible, but neither lacked for endeavour and this Galway team has some quality forwards, with Matthew Tierney and the mercurial Oisín McDonagh in particular catching the eye.

Both teams struggled massively to come to terms with the elements in the early stages, with Leo Howard playing an effective role as the sweeper and Jack Higgins excelling for Mayo, as he did throughout. Mayo played into the gale in the first period, and led two points to nil through two frees from captain Pat Lambert before Galway finally got off the mark with two rapid points in the 21st minute from Tierney and McDonagh. The half time score was 0-4 to 0-3, the game delicately poised and Galway looking like they were up against it facing into the wind for the second half.

However, goals win games and the second half was barely a minute old when wing forward Aidan Halloran ghosted into space infront of Jamie McNicholas’ goal and was expertly found by McDonagh before coolly slotting the ball under the advancing goalie. McDonagh then goaled himself in the 16th minute of the second half after a clever Keelan Craven pass to make the score 2-5 to 0-4 and Mayo with a mountain to climb. Try as they did the Mayo men just couldn’t convert the chances they created and when Joe Gubbins made a super save from corner forward Paul Towey with ten minutes to go, you sensed that it was going to be Galway’s day. McDonagh sealed the Tribesmen’s victory with an outrageous curling score off his left foot from the left wing into the wind after jinking past two defenders in injury time, setting up a showdown for Galway on Connacht final day with Leitrim or Roscommon on the 9th of July.

Mayo: J McNicholas; J Coyne, B McLeod, J Higgins; L Howard, R Brickenden, A McDonnell; P Golderick, J Gallagher (0-1); P Lambert (0-3fs), E Rowley, L Burke; J Jennings (0-1f), T Morris, P Towey Subs: M Moran for Rowley (37 mins), C Golden for Goldrick (42 mins), K Callaghan for Morris (47 mins), C Gavin for Burke and A McHale for Gallagher (53 mins)

Galway: J Gubbins; C O’Neill, S Fitzgerald, T Considine; C Monahan (0-1), J Glynn, M Boyle; C Walsh, J Keady; O Moran, M Tierney (0-2), A Halloran (1-0); K Craven, O McDonagh (1-3), B Harlow (0-1) Subs: O Gormally for Craven (55 mins) P Kelly for Keady (58 mins) J Kirrane for O’Neill (60 mins)

Playing these games so early is absolutely spectator hostile. All because they want to play extra-time there and then and run the competition off as fast as possible. They need to either put them on at a normal time before senior matches or only play them separately. They've managed to combine the worst of all worlds here.

Galway and Ros will be playing in that u17 final and at least one of their minor sides will be in action the following day in the minor Connacht final.
Surely to God they can plan it a small bit better than that ffs.
Whichever team wins the minor semi will have lads that are also on the u17 panel.
It's unfair on those lads to potentially miss out on an u17 Connacht final.

Meath 1-15 Dublin 1-10
Wicklow 1-7 Longford 2-13
Laois 7-15 Louth 0-3
Kildare 2-12 Carlow 1-10 (last minute goal for carlow made the scoreline look more competitive and Kildare minors weren't selected so not that bad a result.)

Hope for Meath but Dublin may not have been at full strenght either. There is a back door same as at minor.

Didnt hear that we were missing anyone. For sure, the only U18 starter who is U17 played.
But like the minor game, got off to an awful start. Meath went 8-0 up. Unlike ther minor game, we couldn't claw them back! I would expect us to improve though, and if we happened to play Meath again I'd say it'd be a 50/50 game.

Louth are still in the minor and hadn't got a few under 17s. 13 of the starting Laois 15 had played in the minor championship.

Couldn't find a minor thread but given the fact that the Under 17 champonship is clearly now of more importance I'll mention tonights minor game here. Dublin won by 1-16 to 0-14 points in the end in a competitive enjoyable enough game in front of a very decent Newbridge crowd. The difference betwen the teams was James Doran who was unplayable at centre forward for Dublin, they are average enough in general but are a very big team and had a well organised blanket defence.
Kildare were solid enough and had the majority of posession but we lacked just a tiny bit of quality in some key positions. 5  of these players are now available for the U17s where they may excell.

John Hickey reffed it and remains excellent in my view, he allows games to flow and is fair.

Eh? Why would you imagine that? This is the new minor grade so it's on the same level as the last U18 final - I'd expect Galway to name a full strength team for Saturday and play some lads a bit gassed on Sunday.

Open to correction. 3 starters Sean Fitzgerald,Jack Glynn,Brain Harlowe and Subs brought on Mattew Tierney,Conor Walsh? it wouldn't have taken much of an effort to push this U17 final back one week but then again the Connacht GAA rarely use common sense.

Congrats to Roscommon. Galway obviously missing a good scatter of their better players who are already on the minor team and panel for Sunday. Can't be helped though in this transition year.

This team beat the Galway County team handy last year and only lost to the City-West side by five in the Ted Webb despite having had a Fr. Manning game two days previous, so it's questionable how close Galway would have been whoever they picked. We're also missing our star forward from last year who thankfully was along with the panel this afternoon, albeit on crutches.

The gap was as significant between the sides as it was on the very good days for us at underage in years past. Great to see that, despite the penny-pinching, talent and good management still can win out. Food for thought for the jackasses that scuttled this year's minor and U21 teams before they even got a chance.

Best wishes to James Larkin from St. Kevin's who suffered a concussion and had to be rushed to Mayo General after the match.

There are a few promising lads on that team; Tumelty (Tang), O'Hara (Lomans), McKenna (Shamrocks) and a couple of the Athlone lads including Dobsy Prendergast's son. However I wouldn't expect to see any of them at u20 level next year. And the lads from the top senior clubs will struggle to find much of a championship outlet.

I think a couple of the minor subs played but those already on the minor team itself and a couple others did not.

I'm not sure what the dates are for the semi's are at this level but they won't be for a while considering where Leinster are up to so it won't have hurt Connacht to hold of for another week. If there's a logical reason why the game had to be played last saturday I'd like to hear it.

Ya still complaining about this? Christ lad.
You'd be doing plenty of moaning about it if the shoe were on the other foot that's for sure.

Hardly. You take your loss and move the fúck on. Manc can't seem to accept his county got beat fair and square. Sad to see.

Not at all. No problem accepting defeat whatsoever. His point was regarding the timing of the game which was unnecessary and which I brought up before the minor semi final was ever played.
It could just as easily have been Roscommon who were put in that position and my opinion would be the same if that were the case.

Incorrect. Kerry pushing to play an All-Ireland semi-final on a Wednesday evening just to suit their minor team that has an overlap of maybe two or three players with the U17 side. We've rightly objected to that nonsense, hence the fact the venues and dates have not been announced.

Went to Breffni to watch this last night as the club had a lad playing for Meath. Tyrone were a different class and the 7 points defeat flattered Meath who never recovered really from the early goal - keeper hesitated and corner forward took advantage. Tyrone very impressive and really well coached. All comfortable on the ball and without doubt young Canavan has the ould fella's genes and football brain - a joy to watch and a real team player unlike some superstars at underage level. Tyrone conveyor belt shows no sign of slowing down
Title: Re: U17 Football Championship
Post by: thejuice on August 10, 2017, 10:47:19 AM
I was hopeful for this group of players but by all accounts the better team won. Perhaps we could have played better in some regards tactically from what I've read but ultimately Tyrone just had the edge in terms of talent in most sectors of the game.

Still two wins over Dublin, a win over Kildare and a Leinster title isn't bad going and from our current predicament at senior level if we could get similar results at adult level in a few years we'd be quite content.

Good luck to Tyrone going forward.  Already looking forward to seeing Canavan junior playing senior in a few years.

Juice - Young Morris from Nobber at FF is a smashing player - very powerful for this age groups but a bit one footed so it'll be interesting to see how he progresses. Also corner back from Ballinabrackey was excellent before he went off injured. 3 of the starting 15 are  still u16 and I'm told by those in the know that the current u16 crop are looking good as well. However I did notice that a few of the bigger lads seemed to struggle for pace but I think Tyrone are well ahead of their peers in Ulster as well from talking to a few of the red handers last night

Tyrone got men back alright when needed and played a sweeper so from my perspective "typical Tyrone" set up. However they dominated possession so much that they were going forward for most of the match and Meath really only threatened when they got turnovers on their 45 and gotr the ball quickly to their forwards - they really struggled to break though when it slowed down- tactically Meath had their top scorer v Dublin wearing 15 but playing as an auxiliary midfielder except stuck to the sideline- weird but probably trying to draw Tyrone out which didn't work.

Well done to the Tyrone lads, blitzed us for 20 minutes in first half.  I feared for a complete annihilation in second half, but the Rossies stuck to the task admirably, and Tyrone kicked a good few wides as Ros were clawing it back.  It never looked like we could manufacture a goal, however, whereas it looked like it was coming for a while for Tyrone.  Plenty to be optimistic about- with the proper supports and coaching, hopefully a few of these lads will be able to step up to senior level.

Hard luck Ros. It would have been nice to see a western win. On the wider point I doubt if this grade of football will be much of a guide to future senior success. Minor to senior is difficult enough to predict.

We were blown away for that 20 minutes before ht.
We were 2nd in every aspect of the game.
At least we restored some pride with a spirited 2nd half.
I could criticise lads but they're only 16/17 year olds trying to do their best so leave them alone.
Well done Tyrone but 9 points a bit harsh on our buckeens..

I'd say the objective for Roscommon with that group of U17s is to get as many of them as possible to play U20 level over the next 3 years and win a provincial title or two.senior and who makes the step up comes after that.

Tyrone very impressive they punished every mistake Roscommon made and were determined not to concede a goal. It was easy to see why they beat a decent Meath team by 7 points in semi final held them to a mere 0-10.

Why were they those black jerseys?
I heard someone say on Sunday that they don't wear the Tyrone crest because they're still in the academy and have to earn the right to wear the senior jersey. I thought it sounded crazy. Anyone else hear this?

Absolutely right Fuzzman, the whole concept of the Acadamh structures means that they don't get the white jersey til they make the senior team. It was felt that there was an issue with boys making it into one of the development squads and thinking they had "made it" full stop, and became complacent when they had all the gear. They wear their club jerseys to training.

That's a protocol worth considering. Selection for and retention in academies in Mayo is highly problematic.

Same in Tipp. Academy squads wear Blue and Gold jerseys, but they are not the same jerseys as the 'Adult' teams.

Surely everyone who really follows Tyrone GAA should know this? The Acadamh structure including jersey and crest have been like this for a couple of years and well publicised.

Must be common enough, Down academy players play in black jerseys.

Does this competition now merit having a final on All Ireland Senior Final Sunday in coming years?

I believe that's the plan. Effectively this is the new 'Minor'.

I remember reading elsewhere that next years U17 All Ireland will be officially known as minor and the same cup that will be presented to Derry or Kerry this September will be given to the 2018 winners.

Minor is u17 next year onwards.

this was a one off competition to cater for 1st yr minors who would miss out next year effectively

Ros lost the U16s Ted Webb Cup Final tonight by a point to Galway City/West. We led by 3 pts going into injury time,  conceded 1-1 then.
Gave away 3 very avoidable goals but letting Galway run the length of the pitch for the 3rd was criminal.
Was an excellent game otherwise.

Roscommon teams are immune to taking a card to close out a game. Do the dirt and don't be a mug, the other teams are fully willing to do it to us when they're ahead at the end. Hopefully the lads learn that lesson as they have every chance in the Fr. Manning and in Connacht next year.
