Disappointing from our perspective considering how good some of these players were at U17. But I think they still have time at this grade to develop a bit more but perhaps we’re not coaching them to the same level as our competitors as we’ve struggled at this grade for too long.
We were amazed last night at how poor the Meath team was. Ye usually have a decent team.
The word is a lot of your team is underage again next year but I think Laois might well be the same.
Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

U20s results

Dublin 1 17 Wex 0 6
Laois 1 13 Meath 0 7

Interesting to see how Laois will go in the final, this group lost to Kildare 2 years ago by 5 points but reversed that this year and turn a 1 pt victory  two years ago into 9 tonight over Meath. That is quality progress, Dublin though turn boys into men better than anyone else.

What would you put that down too?

Hard to weight, you have your organic factor, The Dublin Club scene is really good for development.

Then you have the Capital City factor, any number of scholarships available in the 4 Universities, so a talented footballer won't be moving to Galway, Limerick, Cork etc. So essentially his lifestyle will revolve around football. Add in the best of care that comes from being on the Dublin pathway, top class medical care , S&C access, performance & lifestyle coaches, dieticians and so forth. Even when it comes to getting a summer gig, a Dublin player will be well looked after.

What a lifestyle coach? We never had any of them in Kerry. Peter Keane just has backroom team of 7

It's the role that Bernard Dunne has done for them.

Not sure that either team the Dubs U20s beat were in the top 5 in Leinster this year, so completely unknown how good they are. Haven’t seen them play, but reviews are a bit mixed. Still, they’ve done all that’s been asked of them, so could well have another gear if pushed

I wonder do Laois have any players from the senior panel they can add to the U20s, now they are out of senior?
