Conroy massive miss to that team.. He's head and shoulders the best forward of that age in the country. That's including Canavan

Bit of hyperbole there.

The Archer lad for Dublin is probably the best forward in the country at this age level and Conroy wasn't able to get in ahead of the likes of Canavan and Quinn on last year's team.

Seven new faces in Tyrone U20 squad for All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin

SENIOR championship winner Conal Devlin is one of seven new faces called into the Tyrone U20 panel for next month's All-Ireland semi-final clash with Dublin.

The Dungannon youngster, who starred at corner-back in his club's run to their first title in 64 years, is rewarded with a spot in the Red Hand side that plays the Leinster champions on Saturday, October 17.

Also called up to the Paul Devlin-managed side is Ardboe's Oran Mulgrew (younger brother of senior star David), Mark Hayes, Oisin McCann (younger brother of Tiarnan and Conall) and John Rafferty (all Killyclogher), Eoghan Robinson (Errigal Ciaran) and Carrickmore centre half-forward Rory Donnelly.

Tyrone were originally scheduled to play Dublin on St Patrick's Day and the squad trained on March 10 before all GAA activities were shut-down. Club action resumed after lockdown so six months had gone by before they met again earlier this month.

"You see big changes over six months in lads of 19 or 20 years old," said assistant-manager Dermot Carlin.

I think all of these lads are underage for u20s next year also so I think this is a shrewd move. If they get game time v Dublin then that's a bonus and if not they've been exposed to a county set up preparing for an all-Ireland semi final which will stand to them for next year.

Hayes, McCann and Robinson are all big lads who can play in the forward line and I think these are the type of guys we should be investing time in. The county seems to be coming down with small skillful forwards and the under 20 team is no different with Canavan and Quinn. But these type of players also need someone with more physical presence to play off.

It's similar to the long standing midfield issue discussed on here last week, and we should remember the aim of the game for underage football is to supply the senior team. So in a given year you might have a midfielder or full forward with all the physical attributes but who is a bit raw - persisting with this player and investing time and coaching in him might cost us a couple of underage games but in the long run it will help the senior team more than if we are only producing the prototype Tyrone nippy skillful forward who struggles to win his own ball.

Better off just cancelling the Championship now rather than starting it & not being able to finish it

Things are very hush, hush around the county panel.

Is McKenna the only addition?

I see Canavan is available for the u20s this weekend.

I don't even know if McKenna is with/how long he's been with the county panel as he didn't even tog out for Eglish in the league final.

Panel is the same bar a few whispers of who might be coming in for Cavanagh. Tyrone I think maybe actually had to cut a few players because you can only have 32 now?

I don't think Tyrone carry that big of a panel in any case?

We had a few guys drop themselves off the panel early doors this year.

McKenna is back in and has trained from what I have heard but I didn't hear anyhing else.

Bound to be a few guys carrying injuries too who may not be involved this year.

Sean Cavanagh having a whinge in the Irish independent today about Colm not getting a public thank you from the county board. Is that a thing they do? Not sure what they were expecting?

Yeah he makes the Sunday Game unwatchable when he is on.

Looking forward to this weekends matches. Will mickey throw McKenna straight in or leave him to 1st November? You would think both teams would be going with fairly strong teams to blow the cobwebs off.

I see he uas also come out with the claim that "players will be encouraged to hide potential symptoms of sickness and illness". What a load of utter dung.

It will be interesting.

All camps seem to keeping things very hush, hush. No word on any new faces other than McKenna.

Not too sure on the injury front but pretty much all the regulars were fit and available for their clubs during club championship.

I forget what way the table was but I think we need a win from one of our last two games to keep us up?

Two defeats would likely relegate us if Mayo win a the weekend?
