GAA Discussion / Junior Footballers in County Panels
« on: December 31, 2014, 09:49:15 AM »
I'm a great admirer of how the Kerry Championship is structured. It means that every player in the county has a chance to play in the premier competition in the county and that no good junior/intermediate players are missed by the county management team. Around 2008 I did an analysis of the Tyrone and Kerry senior panels. 78% of the Tyrone panel were made up of players from the senior clubs while 52% of the Kerry Panel were from senior clubs. Of the 28 that togged out for Kerry in the all - ireland final in 2014 25% were from junior clubs. Last year Tyrone had 1 player from a junior club (Stephen O'Neill). I was wondering how it was in the rest of the counties?

« on: July 04, 2014, 01:42:31 PM »
just had a look at the 2 games from youtube from 1935 and didn't spot one solo among them. Skip to Cavan semi in 1949 and one brave man attempts 3 solos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaU-Q8MDAbU - Anybody know who first started the solo?
