people diss other names but i dont think this man has taken a senior team??was he over the babbey minor team???if not this is a strange apointment altogether

Was over Ballyroan ladies this year I think. Will be interesting appointment. Seamus Lalor of Portlaoise a selector alongside so I believe. Give the boys a chance at least. Plenty of footballing knowledge there.
It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail

Noel is a good guy and will put his shoulder to the wheel.  Hopefully it all works out for him, I am sure he will take some experience and advice on board.  I think he could surprise a few people.

Over 80 players in last night for the Minor trials. Played 2 games simultaneously, bringing them back next week for another 2 games

Heard it was a bit of a farce so many turned up ...

But that can be a good sign as well they will take time to sort themselves out and cut it into a panel

80 young lads on a cold dark night in November. Sounds like nightmare organisation.

A seperate u17 team will be entered into a Leinster & All Ireland series, presumably acting as a development squads for the u17s who don't make the minor panel as this is their only year "minor" due to the rule changes in 2018

Great to see that kind of numbers returning to minor trials. Interest seems to be returning again similar to the trials organised by Sean Dempsey,Eddie Kelly, Ollie Phelan and Gabrial Lawler back in the day

They held the U17 & U18 trials together. Narrowed it down to 50 last week and they'll work with them until January and narrow it down more then. Don't know who's in & out but heard the manager was only at 1 of the 3 trials......

Kinsella, Comerford, Whelan and the big chap from Camross all minor again this year. No backs in there which might be a concern

All mentioned good footballers a years experience, whelan hopefully tear it up this year good talent.. a shortage of quality backs seem to be problem in laois, would be great to unearth a couple this year..

Whelan in particular is a real prospect. Alan Kinsella did well last year too.

How did they get on against Offaly

Lost by 14 points apparently, but presumably experimental team/players played.. Final (if any?) cut made so far
