Two Laois under 14 football development teams were well beaten by Offaly at the weekend. No reasons to be optimistic for the the future, as of yet.

And therein lies the problem, being results focused at under 14 level is absolutely ridiculous.

Development, Development, Development is all that should matter.

You can get hammered in a game and still pick out a number of positives if you're not blinded by the scoreline.

Looking forward to seeing the u20s tonight . Tonight is about getting a result against more than decent opposition  . Thought 15 quid a ticket was a little much for tonight though .

Graigue second team against Portlaoise third team? Or both third teams?

Graiguecullen’s second team. To be fair, I hear they are fairly strong with a good few from their winning Minor team last year playing with the second team. Should give the Junior championship a good go.

Hard luck to the U20s last night in an excitin game.
We could have snatched it at end. Fine margins.

Just think we were a little to easy to play against. kildare got a couple of scores where they carried the ball from deep and nobody laid a glove on them.
Dublin got a shock last night bit came through against westmeath. Offaly had a big win. Looks a competitive championship.
