A lot of clubs have two teams at U12. Maybe that's why they're down twice

Cavan have just reformed as well so we could include them. For example Carlow, Offaly, Cavan and Kildare could join up and enter as C.O.C.K... ie What this thread is a load of.

I wouldn't like to be the poor camera man trying to get out of Clonaslee if anything happened.

Lots of talk that there will be an 8 team Division 1 next year. That would suit us better.

You wouldn't worry too much about the result ? I would, Louth were in division 4 last year and had it far from all their own way In fact they were beaten by Leitrim and only bet Waterford by a point and drew with Antrim . Yet they can bully us from start to finish on our home patch . I'd be very worried about Armagh next then Tipp and then Sligo away could have no points after 4 games.

I think you need to reset your sarcasm detector.

I wouldn't worry too much about the result last Saturday night. At least all the main important things like fashionable jersies, flash hairdos, designer stubbles and fancy boots were all in place.

In respect of the comments about the 4 Spink lads just been athletic, having seen Spink in action against a couple
of more fancied teams last year, I thought  they were exceptional.

If you looked at that squad for the last 2-3 years most of the squad have been involved in various Feile Panels
with Ballyroan and St. Pauls and both teams represented Laois well.

No wonder people worry about Juvenile football and kids get turned off when you see comments like the ones about the Spink
Players  with many of them good soccer players too.

Its best to brand the kids at that age with hot irons to say Football or hurling. I understand that Diarmud Connolly is a better hurler and was a better juvenile hurler than footballer and played both at juvenile level. I am sure the same could have been said about him and it looks like its worked out for him and Dublin been an athletic hurler playing football.
   

First of all I didn't mention the four Spink lads, I mentioned two of them. They are out and out hurlers who just play football for a bit of a laugh.

Diarmuid Connolly was always first and foremost a footballer. He happened to be good at hurling but because he was always a footballer he ended up.... wait for it... playing football.

Didn't want to start a new thread for this but below is the U15 panel for 2017.

Interesting to see that the likes of Spink can have 4 representatives while the big urban centres of Graigue, Port and Mountmellick have a total of 2 between them (Mountmellick don't have anyone on the panel). In saying that there's only one representative from the entire Arles parish.

The county board really need to have a look at these figures and get coaches into the urban centres. They are not turning out enough younglads of the right standard whether it be skill or attitude. There has to be more than 2 footballers in those 3 areas??

Laois Under-15 Football Panel for 2017 was today named and is as follows:

Oisin Byrne Arles/Killeen
Adam Connolly Ballyfin
Danny Brennan Ballyroan/Abbey
Eoghan Dunne Ballyroan/Abbey
Adam Broady Ballyroan/Abbey
Brian Whelan Ballyroan/Abbey
James McWey Ballyroan/Abbey
Jamie Burke Barrowhouse
Adam Daly Clonaslee
DJ Callaghan Clonaslee
Ciaran Burke Crettyard
Daniel Murphy Graiguecullen
Orrie Doran Killeshin
Jack Brennan Killeshin
David McDonald Killeshin
Rioghan Murphy Portarlington
Ben Brennan Portlaoise
Kevin Swayne Portlaoise
Cormac Dunne Portlaoise
Cian O Shaughnessy Spink
Cathal O Shaughnessy Spink
Mark Kehoe Spink
Jamie Stratford Spink
Nathan Little St Pauls
Sean Greene St Pauls
Paul O Flynn St Pauls
Josh O Brien St Josephs
Jamie Kelly St Josephs
Conor Goode Stradbally
Eamon Delaney Stradbally
Ciaran O Neill Stradbally
Two of the four Spink lads are from Ballinakill and are just hurlers who happen to be athletic. They aren't footballers at all and are still able to make a county squad. Overall there are five hurlers on that panel. I don't mind dual players but these lads are just hurlers. Just goes to show how poor football is when they need to raid the hurling panels to make up a squad. Surely there are enough footballers in the county to make up a football squad

It's Mayo in Athlone

There's been some great stuff up on the website lately. Good pictures, previews and profiles. It's a big improvement. Obviously, someone else must be running it now.

Ross owes Laois nothing as just shows the passion he has for Laois that he still wants to play and feels he can still offer something. He'd make a great development officer for Laois as there's no one as commited as him.

Based on what I say during the club championship he's still in the top 10 forwards in the county so it's up to the younger lads to step up

I don't think Ross knows anything about greyhounds and I don't think he would play for Stradbally so a job as a Laois Development Officer would be out ;)

Christ that's a low blow but a fairly accurate one nonetheless

Well done to BK.
Had potential to be as good a game as the first day but I felt ref didnt let the game flow as well as he could.

Harsh on Broken I thought he did a good job was one R/E free he might have got wrong near the end where Borris got a point but looking back on the TV last night it looked like both players slipped .

Great game of hurling again and well done to Borris/Kilcotton

Harsh?? Are you joking? He was septic. Everything in the first half was a free, no flow to the game at all. Every time two lads touched off each other a free was given. That coupled with his inability to keep up with the play meant he was miles off the standard set by Lawlor. Lawlor and Stapleton are by far the best in Laois.
