(Oldest Posts First)

Any word on if the new un20 team has got together yet and who the manager will be?

I think any player playing for the seniors can't play for the u20s so if that's correct you can rule out Darragh Rooney and Niall mcgovern straight away

Can't play senior until their involvement in U20 is finished up.

Team Management is probably some of the mentors involved in recent years.

I think the less heard the better. Were trying to forget the result already

I expect leitrim to beat or at least rattle mayo today the head of coaching in the county is part of the leitrim management team. It's the first time I seen his name as part of an underage management team in leitrim. So I'm going to assume this team
Is well prepared and the people of the county will realise why he is head of coaching. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and judge him after this game

So much for the head of coaching being involved - he is doing a great job! Absolutely beat out the gate again!! Forget about talking about the senior team progressing until these u20 and minor teams are winning and competing in connacht championships. How do Leitrim constantly get it so wrong all the time? Why are the mayo team and ross eye. able to compete at such a higher level??

Cannot fault the effort of the lads on the field today but were way out of our depth, a man at the game named 9 players who are all playing div 1 league football for their clubs and have played minor for us in the last two years and yet were not available today for one reason or another.......until wee sort out this problem we are not going to be able to compete......

The county board need to look at the management they have put in place over this team! They have been over trained, training since early February is madness for one game in June. They looked so unprepared so you have to ask what the manger was doing with the players for 5 months. If it wasn't for the keeper they would have shipped 30 plus points.

Looking at the same minor team who played Mayo in the minor championship a few years ago, this team had only 6 of the lads starting that day who played yesterday. What has happened to our county development in 2 years? When it comes to senior football we come up with all sorts of excuses for when we lose, but this is the underlying cause. The foundation on which we build our senior panel starts with our development squads. In plain and simple, i believe this is the reason we haven't progressed as a county.

Development squads are the biggest waste of time.

Leitrim never scored a point from play in this game. I don't think I've ever heard of that happening before, maybe in the early 1900s. Exactly what were they doing in training?

Looking at the program of the panel lined out for the u20s can anyone tell me when the county of leitrim was split in 2? One player north of the county on the panel and no member of the management team either. What ever chance we have we need to be able to choose from every club maybe there is more to it.
