Leinster Minor Football Championship 2020
« on: January 23, 2022, 04:11:46 PM »
We're in a group with Dublin, Louth and Westmeath. Management team is Conor Gorman, Paddy Dunne and Eamonn O'Connell. Donie Brennan not involved as rumoured before Christmas.
Played Carlow this weekend. Didn't hear how it went.

Paddy dunne not involved I heard Billy Delaney from Stradbally in instead. Beat Carlow by 5 or 6 points. Seem to have a few nice players in there.

My bad. I'd heard Paddy was involved. Billy has great experience with various teams.

Minor footballers were playing Armagh today in Abbotstown. Beaten by a point I heard.

I'm of an age where I refer to them by their fathers. Sons of Hughie Emerson and Mick Tarpey midfield! Couple of Courtwood Emo lads very good in the forwards. Dineen of Joseph's full back is a serious footballer. Underage again next year. Loughman of Ballylinan centre back. Kelly of Joseph's centre forward (son of county board chairman PJ). Gordon Lawlor has two sons on panel. Couple of Graigue lads decent players.

Young Costello is a really good prospect superb player and a really brave chap. Dineen from Josephs is gonna be brilliant in my opinion too. I think they may be missing a few who didn't commit too and Kevin Byrne from Camross is injured but I think i saw him back running last night.

Minors played Tipp last Saturday in COE. Game destroyed by wind. Tipp won but not sure by how much. Could've been around 6 or 7 points. Laois team looked a bit experimental compared to previous weeks. Hard to read this team as yet. Every game they've played seems to have been in difficult weather!

A good result but a quite patchy performance. Failed to score in second half until 2 late goals. That said Westmeath only got 2 points against the very stiff wind. Difficult day for football but both teams made a lot of mistakes.
Not too many standout performances for Laois. Full forward Little was probably MOTM, 2-1 from play and set up third goal. Costello at centre forward has a lot of skill but Westmeath were well warned about him and he was fouled a lot. Kicked a couple of very difficult frees. Joseph's lad at 12 was good too. Midfielders Emerson and Tarpey worked hard but one of the opposite midfielders got the better of them. Corner back Darcy seemed to have a bit about him. Full back Dinneen was pretty solid.
