I know its not a normal time but those "development grades" aren't getting much time for developing.
Will the 2020 Minors be finished before the 2021 starts?

How are tickets to be distributed for these games does anyone know?

For the U20 opener Roscommon v Leitrim some tickets went on sale online and were snapped up straight away.

Galway v Mayo game and finals will probably go to club members and  club raffles at that. Just 500 supporters allowed to attend.

Connacht GAA will be streaming all the games. https://connachtgaa.ie/news/connacht-minor-and-u20-championship-streaming-information/

Has Conor Carroll transferred to Roscommon via the parentage rule?
He was sub keeper for the Galway u20s under Pj two years ago as far as I remember.

I presume so. He was the Galway sub keeper at minor level in 2018 also.

Half time Roscommon 2-10 Leitrim 0-6. Harsh on Leitrim the two goals scored in injury time.

FT Roscommon 4-16 Leitrim 0-10

A sudden dramatic 4 of 5 minutes of playing time each side of half time as score went from 0-9 0-6 to 4-11 0-6.
Leitrim lad getting a black card helped no doubt.
Sligo will be a big test as they had a few decent minor teams last few years, esp 2019.

Edit - Some of Sligo panel with Covid.

Still a very decent team on paper although they've lost two very good eligible players in Paul Kelly and Cathal Sweeney who have already played for the seniors this year. Actually I don't see James McLaughlin either so wonder if he's injured?

A real pity he's missing significant time at such an important stage of his development. Wasn't he actually training with the senior squad for a period last autumn, not long gone 18? Probably as exciting a prospect Galway have had for quite a while. Hopefully he'll see the field again shortly.

It does affect other teams also, but if you'd have picked 3 footballers not to miss out for this side in particular it'd have been Kelly, Sweeney and McLaughlin. It's probably the difference between being a solid team and being the favourites for the All Ireland. They'll be doing very well to progress

I assume McLaughlin is training with the seniors as he was with the rest of the panel members at the Roscommon game, he's still only 18. A huge loss though for this evening, he's some talent.

Galway very hot favourites tonight which I find odd given the quality of the 3 lads their missing. Galway won the last 5 at 20/21 level over Mayo, their definitely due a win.

Wasn't McLaughlin, Paul Kelly missing for the All-Ireland semi final last year and still bet Kerry. I think 14 of that Galway starting team was either starters in u20 final last year or in All-Ireland minor finals 2018/19. Conall Gallagher  the one that wasn't as he was a minor last December.

Oisin Tunney, Heneghan and Paul Walsh are notable absentees for Mayo.

Whilst agreeing that those 3 are massive losses - I would say though that Culhane would probably be the biggest loss of all (if he had come on against Ros). Purely in terms of him being the chief score getter in the team from both play and frees.
This game could go either way much like last years game in Castlebar.
I saw Mayo midfielder Jack Carney playing for his club last year (had never heard of him at that time) and he stood out to me as a potential future senior down the road. Very stylish midfielder who can kick a score.

Will be interesting tonight, Mayo manager Maurice Sheridan is a teacher in Claregalway and involved with Salthill-Knocknacarra for years. Was a penalty shootout win for Galway last year v Mayo and they then went on to win it out beating Kerry and Dublin in semi and final respectively. Pity TG4 aren't showing tonight, can be viewed on Connacht GAA Twitter page links.

Deserved for Mayo, better team in general I think, left a lot of scores behind them in ET when Galway couldn't keep hold of the ball or create any real chances.
Sad to see that the toxic environment at Senior level has decended to the underage ranks, whatever about Senior it's not nice to hear it directed at a bunch of young lads.

Dodgy refereeing aside, I didn't think Galway deserved it. Disappointing display and Mayo had greater impetus in extra time. Mayo can be very happy with their return around the middle. Probably fair for Mayo to win this penalty shootout after Galway winning last years

Would sicken your hole that the scumbags jeering and booing teenage free takers are going home happy, but it is what it is.

Think Mayo only got on top there after the crazy black card for the Galway sub. A full 10 minutes in extra time with only 14 is tough going. Mayo could really press up then on the kick out. Mayo got 2 black cards themselves but both in the dying seconds of extra time which didn’t really affect them.

Great win for Mayo built on a strong defensive performance of holding Galway to 9 scores and the goal conceded was a penalty. If it wasn't for double figures on wides Mayo would have got a deserved win in extra time.

Tough way for the All-Ireland champions to bow out but they beat Mayo in a simliar manner last year.

The first half was very low on quality, so many handling errors and poor shooting. It picked up a bit after that. Agreed there's no place for jeering frees, especially at underage.

Best players for Mayo were in defence and midfield unsurprisingly. The 2 knockmore backs were very good and jack Carney was excellent after half time.

Dodgy refereeing aside, I didn't think Galway deserved it. Disappointing display and Mayo had greater impetus in extra time. Mayo can be very happy with their return around the middle. Probably fair for Mayo to win this penalty shootout after Galway winning last years

Would sicken your hole that the scumbags jeering and booing teenage free takers are going home happy, but it is what it is.
you have very selective hearing if you think it all came from the Mayo crowd.A bunch of gurriers in the top right corner whistled and booedevery free that young Dempsey took.It's a vile act to treat young lads like what we heard from elements in both camps.

Grand pal, you're the only person in the entirety of online forums and social media that thought both sets were at it. Convenient. Dempsey took plenty of frees and nobody yet anywhere has suggested or heard booing, in comparison to Culhane who went from not only having misses ironically jeered in H1, to outright booing while taking a free in H2.

There barely sounded like there was a Galway fan at the game tbh, which is a problem of itself

Not at the game but funny that the commentary mentioned when Dempsey was standing over a free that the small crowd and no noise made it like a rugby player standing over a penalty kick- it only added to the pressure on Dempsey they reckoned. Again not there so couldn't comment for sure.

Galway were very disappointing, thought the odds were crazy looking at the players involved and taking last years result in consideration. Galway struggled at midfield, Mayo picking up so many more of the breaks; McLaughlin didn't look that fit when he came on but did have an impact. I was very surprised not to see Cian Hernon moved into midfield given his display against Kerry last year when he was superb.

Mayo were slightly the better team and looked like a stronger team too, Galway certainly had a lot more smaller players.

Mayo were slightly the better team and looked like a stronger team too, Galway certainly had a lot more smaller players.

Galway were below par but it's underage so cannot rely on consistent performances, Galway had a load of players returning in 2014 from the previous years champions as well and were dumped out by Leitrim of all counties, Mayo were the better team to me yesterday evening and deserved to go through albeit via the shootout route.

Galway were destroyed on breaking ball as you've said, but equally didn't make great use of the possession they had, Culhane didn't have one of his best games, there were a number of frees that on another day he'd knock over without an issue, it happens. McLaughlin not being fully fit was a big loss when Sweeney and Kelly were ineligible.
The ref had some inconsistent calls at crucial moments, the free for the Mayo equaliser in ET was a joke when you see some of the other stuff that was left go at the other end in ET, if you are giving those marginal calls to the defence, you can't change tack and give a tapover point for nothing.
Thought Gill should have got a peno in the first half when he was pushed in the back while going for a shot which was saved, if he'd flopped down the ref would probably had to give it but really once it went to ET it was only Mayo's wayward shooting that kept Galway in it, no score bar the penalty a minute in. Hernon had the best chance down the stretch but put it wide, wouldn't fault him too much though as he was one of Galway's best.

As well as the phantom equalizing free, how can you give a penalty for a drag down stopping a guy getting to a goal chance and then not black card the perpetrator? That was incredible. two mins later he black cards a Galway player for something much less.

Again il say though, it would have led to an undeserved Galway victory. Mayo were the better side

In fairness the black card for the Galway sub in ET was a definite black card. He hauled back the Mayo lad off the ball. Was completely unnecessary as well as the ball was already long gone. That was actually the turning point in the game as Galway were 2 or 3 points up at that stage but were under the pump for the next 10 minutes with only 14. They couldn't work any short kick outs as Mayo pushed up with the extra man. Once Galway got back to 15 they actually had the better chances to win the game in the last few minutes of ET. Hernon had a great chance to win it but hard to blame a lad for missing when he's likely exhausted having played the entire game plus extra time. Even McLaughlin's huge free from almost midfield looked like it was going to drop over the bar before it fell just short at the very end.

I wouldn’t say Mayo were the better team to be honest. It was just a very tight match. Hence it going to penalties after extra time. You couldn’t have argued had either side won it. And while Galway did have a good chunk of lads left from the AI winning side last December I’d say the most talented lads on that side (bar one or two exceptions) are now either overage or were still eligible but have already moved up to the senior squad so couldn’t play the last night. 

Culhane and McLaughlin were probably the two biggish names left from the AI winning side and McLaughlin wasn’t fit enough to start the game and only came on towards the end of normal time. Culhane had one of his quieter games but defences were very much on top for both sides.

Hard to judge where Mayo are at based on that game. It was very poor quality football - yet the quality of the penalties from both teams were top class, as good as you’d ever see. The game was tight, tense very low scoring and maybe two good teams just canceling each other out. Mayo certainly are strong in the backs, and look to have a good scatter of strong, physical players. Ros are a good footballing side, but with a lot of injuries to key players. Should make for a great contest. Ara we’ll win.

Have only been logging in and out intermittently for the past few days. Well done to the Mayo team on beating Galway. Only heard bits and pieces on the radio and the booing was awful to say the least. Especially seeing most of it was from the Mayo supporters. In one way that's the bad part of having a successful (in our terms at least) team, is that there are fans who weren't there pre-2011. However that's the only bad point so I'll take it, but seeing as there were only 500 in attendance it sounded horrible. Did I see correctly that the tickets for the Roscommon game are on sale tomorrow's morning at 10am?

The Senior mismatch was a test or pilot event with a 10% or so capacity.
The u20s aren't so the 500 outdoor limit applies.
I'm hazarding a guess that for the earlier rounds each CB got 100 with 300 (limited no.) for sale but the Final maybe 200 to the CBs and only 100 ("very limited no.) for sale.

Abysmal by Mayo. When they had the ball they'd get to 50m from, pass laterally, then someone take a hail mary pot shot. No attacking plan in evidence over the 2 games.
Roscommon played very counter attack for much of the game, but as it went on they realised Mayo were no threat and their confidence grew - they were ravenous and fully deserving of their win.

Great win. Have enjoyed our 3 games in Connacht immensely. Very concerning first quarter - and looked like it could be one of those days. But if anything that qtr ended with Mayo losing confidence, as they kicked some thunderous wides and tired themselves out with a labourious style of play, very un-Mayolike style. Ros never looked back once they settled in 2nd qtr. Much better tackling team than I realised, good foot passers which was vital in that heat, and a set of forwards always looking to score. We had bad misses too so there’s a huge amount of improvement but with some of our best players only coming back from injury, we will get better. Hard luck to Mayo, when you knock out an All-Ireland Favourite has to be disappointing to then lose provincial final. A bright spot was some of their midfield fielding. But will lament lack of forwards in this group. Have a stronger group coming next year, as has Sligo.

Yes it's not much of development grade for the loser tomorrow and these set of players had no U16 competitions last year either.

Roscommon team

Sean Kelly (Clann na nGael)
Daniel Casey (Boyle)
Conor Harley (Padraig Pearses)
James Brady (Tulsk)

Goals win matches. Roscommon got more goals (and points) last night. Was only listening to Midwest, but it sounded from Austin Garvin that Roscommon had better footballers skill wise. It might be a wake up call for Mayo at underage structural level.

10 or more of that Ros team that night became Seniors and won 2 Connacht Titles.

A memorable night for 2 reasons - the other being I discovered who Syferus was that night.
He's still spouting nonsense on stolensheep🙄

If Mayo wasn't as you say beaten out the gate maybe more than 4 of that team would be playing for Mayo seniors right now? Three of those 4 was Stephen Coen, Diarmuid O'Connor and Michael Plunkett all part the Mayo 2016 U21 and 2013 minor All Ireland winning teams.

Great performance by young Rossies yesterday. Nice direct, fast style and no little skill by the underage teams. Won in the first half in a blistering spell, and always maintained a comfortable lead but credit to Mayo too they never gave up, when heads can easily drop at this age group. Heat and cramp took a lot out of both sides and recovery will be tough for semi against Galway.
