Laois Junior Football Championship 2017

Has to be Park Ratheniska or Kilcavan to win this surely?
Unless Graigue have the numbers?

Logic would say Ratheniska and Kilcavan would have the best chance given its their first teams, but can be hard to judge at this level. 2nd teams of senior clubs can be very strong some years, usually their teams have a blend of youth and experience so if a club has been doing well at minor and u-21 the last few years they may have a good few younger players who are on the fringe of making their first team but not quiet ready for senior. This sort of team can be very dangerous at this level.

True. Joseph's would fit that profile too but the loss of so many lads will impact on what could have been a very good junior team.

I wonder could The Harps do anything in the junior?
They seem to have a few good young footballers.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

I think Kilcavan are decent enough and could edge Graigue to this.
Both had good wins last night.

That would have been some shock.

Prob the poorest standard or Jumior teams in recent years...Park should win this but they struggled to beat a division 5 Camross team who were missing their best player and didn't look too bothered!

Based on that result you'd have to edge the likes of Graigue, The Heath, Kilcavan and Joseph's ahead of Park

Good to see Spink off the mark last night.
Through to quarter finals now I think.

Final score: Spink 3-6 Portlaoise 1-9 but was Spink 1-0 Portlaoise 1-6 at half time, serious second half performance there.

Derek O Connell in goals. Rory O Connell full forward. Some servants. Surely Tarpey is a sub there somewhere as well.
