Galway U-20s:
Darragh Silke- Corofin
John Daly-Mountbellew Moylough
Evan Murphy-Salthill (playing for Galway Utd at the minute so probably rules him out for a while anyway)
Murphy tore cruciate in October.

Yeah he was on crutches out on the pitch there last October when Salthill won the minor. Once fit he's probably going to have to decide if he's going to play gaelic or soccer. Difficult and getting even harder to do both to a high level.

Did he not have some kind of soccer scholarship offer from America too? Being honest I don't think he'll ever be a constant in a Galway football team, too much going on with soccer which seems to be his preference.
Locally last summer there was a lot of talk about Ryan Monaghan (Oughterard) Tony Gill (Corofin) Conor Raftery (Glenamaddy) and Matthew Cooley (Corofin) from last year's minors

There's this guy called Clifford we have who's fairly decent..doubt he'll play u20 in 2019 though!
Michael Potts from Crokes is a very good player, as is Donal O'Sulivan from the tiny club of Kilgarvan but after Clifford - Diarmuid O'Connor from Na Gaeil is probably the best prospect. Has the mobility and versatilty to be a big player at the highest level with the right development and a bit of luck.
This team won the Minor in 2017 but obviously Clifford an enormous loss and everything revolved around him so interesting to see how they adapt without him.

Paul O'Shea from last years u17s is a super player and being targeted by AFL. Hope he doesn't go. Ruarí O'Beaglaíoch who is still u17 this year is an excellent prospect also.

In Tyrone, the obvious one is Darragh Cavanan, who is getting a run in the McKenna cup at the minute and looks a different class
Young Murnaghan from Killyclogher had a great year for them last season in the run to the county final an is also getting a look in the mckenna cup.
Probably just out of this criteria, but was on the u20s last year, Brian Kennedy looks like he could make  an impact sooner than any of them.

From watching the minors the last few years Id have said Sean Mulkerrin was the outstanding defender during the period of winning the last 4 Connacht Minor titles, he was involved in last years FBD panel and is still available to the U20's again this year. I really like the look of Cein D'Arcy too, seen some action during the league last year so would expect to see more of him this year.

From last years minors I thought Cathal Sweeney was the standout player, like the look of Matthew Cooley too;
