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.

Good idea, starting to do this in Cavan also

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.
