Do Galway play Mayo in February? Not a great draw especially considering Galway don't even have a manager yet.

Yes. Nominations in place for that management role and just a matter of picking between the current Galway Minor football manager Donal O’Fatharta of An Spideal, former Galway minor football manager Stephen Joyce of an Fhairce and Mick Culhane of Salthill/Knocknacarra who was a selector this year with the U20’s under Joyce.

I wonder when did U20 team managenents find out the Championship was coming in February instead of June?
I presume there wont be time for the Keagues that were played this year?
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Same time as senior managers found out about the introduction of the second tier. Unlikely to be leagues with the sigeron Cup played off in January.

The 2nd Tier was being talked about for 12 months or more beforehand.
The U 20 was sprung a few days ago.

What was the original thinking in moving it to the summer and what has changed?

Original thinking was that you could only be on 1 Co panel so all 3 Football Championships could be played simultaneously.

Was little thinking at all, silly scheduling that should have changed after the first year and now its moved back to similar schedule as the U21 championship was.

Was talks about the displeasure of the June to August U20 championship since it was introduced. My point was the change was made in the recent Cork congress the same congress that brought the 2nd tier in.

hard to develop u20s in February alright.

It's a pity in 10 years time, a fella who played U20 county can't be able to look back and say he played alongside or against David Clifford.

June schedule had its issues also, matter of fact some players opted out of county U20s panels to focus fully on their studies and having the latter end of the U20 championship clashing with the the super duper 8s was poor scheduling also

In the terms of sigerson cup one solution could be playing it November, December while the college league currently played at the moment moved back a month.
