QuoteAny truth in the story Damien Mitchell is returning to his home county??
QuoteMitchell set to team up with LongfordGaelic Games Digest/WESTMEATH: One of the heroes of Westmeath's 2004 Leinster final triumph could be about to throw in his lot with neighbours Longford - and it could mean a clash with his former colleagues in next year's Leinster championship opener.David Mitchell recently trained with Luke Dempsey's Longford and there is strong speculation he will be included in the panel for the National League.Mitchell didn't line out with Westmeath in this year's championship. The news of his possible change of allegiance follows the departure of attacker PJ Ward to Offaly.
QuoteWestmeath ace to join LongfordDAVID MITCHELL, one of the heroes of Westmeath's historic 2004 Leinster final triumph, is set to join neighbours Longford.Mitchell has been training with Longford who are managed by his former Westmeath boss Luke Dempsey.Mitchell, who didn't line out for Westmeath in the 2006 championship, was born in Carrickedmond, Co Longford, and it is believed this could qualify him to play for Longford without having to leave his current club, St Mary's of Rochfortbridge.If he opts for Longford, it could mean a dramatic clash with his former colleagues in the first round of next year's Leinster championship. The news of Mitchell's possible move follows the departure of attacker PJ Ward to Offaly.
QuoteI hope there is a strong link otherwise we are just doing a Cavan.If he is originally from Longfrod then no problem........otherwise just no.
QuoteIf Mitchell was born in Carrickedmond, he should always have played with Longford. What's he coming 'home' for now? Our last experiment at 'buying' a fullback didn't work, so I can't see the logic in this either - and we shouldn't be stooping to the level of Cork/Kildare.
QuoteFour home games in the League - five wins should take us up, or do we just have to stay in top four to qualify for the new D3?

QuoteI hear only 4 players turned up at the AGM - it's going from bad to worse. Ardagh reckoned we were the worst team they'd played (anywhere) in five years.
QuoteAny sign of a new trainer yet?
