Kevin really came into his own around 16-18, up until then he was an average player.

Dont think Downjim as any names. Hope he doesn't post the names of blow ins at his club. It would be some list

A Clonduff poster could verify this, if they had a good internet connection.

Apparently a lot of money being put on the point to win Frank in Hugoís. 12/1

Cheers for clearing that up Paddy but I was not even on about you. Why do you live in  Hilltown and play for Tecconaught? Clonduff have 3 adult teams Paddy ??

Safer asking him that but was clearing up that its not exactly clonduff bringing boys in for years when he lives in the parish but his home club where he used to live doesnt have a team just like he hurls for clonduff because they Tíconnaught dont have a Hurling team. Not everyone has a caravan to play where they want. Nothing wrong with lads whos club does t have a team joining somewhere else, but 2 closest clubs should try to join to make one team rather than ayera going where they want. Be nice to see more teams at u20. Saul/bright/ardglass? Drumgath annaclone used to join? Saval/Ballyholland, aghaderg/Clan na banna? And more if we are so worried about lads joining other clubs we should look at some senior teams theough the divisions were lads addresses dont match their clubs catchment :)

In Theory yes this is a good thing for under age. Problem is though it's usually the smaller club in the pairing that has players tempted to go with the annaclones or clann na banna when it comes to senior football. They see  more chance of playing at a higher level.

Just giving examples, in ideal world its 2 x smaller clubs that should join for those competitions only for a numbers issue rather than join with a big club who dont need the numbers which is where this conversation appears to have started

Down team for Longford named as Burns; Collins, Wells, McAleenan; Laverty, Flannagan, O'Hagan; Flynn, Mooney; Ryan Johnston, Poland, McGrady; O'Hare, Harrison, McKernan.

It's a pretty strong side for a crunch match, with the winners very likely to be promoted. Jerome might have started but will certainly be used at some stage. Pierce Laverty is an excellent prospect and there is only one way to find out if he is a senior county player.

Strong enough looking 15 again this week from Down, looking forward to seeing how Laverty gets on. Surprised Maginn not in from the start tho after the difference he made last time out.

Conor Francis not made the 26? Is he injured?
