Truth hurts

To draw more people on Saturday, Down ought to provide complimentary tickets to every u10 player in the County. Our players should have strong home support.

Yes good idea but  up to the age u16 free

They needed firstly to win today which they did impressively but they needed  Monaghan to beat donegal today but Monaghan didnt need to win and Donegal did, so it was very unlikely that they were ever going to get through today in this position.

How many promising minor teams are we going to let management setups ruin before we install the correct people to start developing the underage talent we have in this county??
Get that current man out now and get Laverty to install who he wants - it has worked with u20 group..

Benny did as good a job as the U20s did. Probably won more games than the u20s?

No he did not.. that u20s team were shocking at minor level and have won a trophy at u20 level having drawn with Tyrone in the championship. Their improvement is remarkable.

It's a relegation trophy, a B c'ship, for teams who were put out early. They beat Antrim and Fermanagh to win it!

Your some boy for the negatives. Did you look at the group they were in? Played both finalists, should've beat Tyrone who won ulster.
Thry now play Mayo in a SF. It's all about game time. More games these lads play, the better. Winning a b championship is better than winning nothing.

Some result tonight in St Mary's park.. lads really stood up and were counted. Eoghan Byrne and Ryan Boyle immense throughout. Referee was excellent and didn't fall for their bully boy tactics.

I didnt get to Newry yesterday. But sounded like a routine win yesterday. Limerick tried to flood the defence to keep the score down. Anyone make an impression? How did Ben McConville play. McKibben and McGovern both got a few scores. London up next who demolished Offaly in Tullamore. The group stage doesn't get the imagination going.

it was a very 'professional' performance from Down yesterday, turn up get the job done and get plenty of players game time in doing so. Apart from first 10 minutes Down were always in control without really blowing Limerick away.
Daniel Guinness, Ryan McEvoy, Pierce Laverty were all very good, Odhran Murdock who played a lot of the game at full forward won a lot of ball and showed well in the forward line

Great win for the u20s, into the all Ireland B final after a 1 point win over Mayo
