Unique Tactic?

(Oldest Posts First)

Was at the Castlerahan Eoghan Rua Ulster QF today and saw something I never saw before. Castlerahan were six points down at HT and had a black card and red and a county man of injured. Also lost another county man at start of second half. They decided to play man on man with the goal keeper coming out and marking a player. Nearly worked. Brought it back to one with Eoghan Rua taking 24 minutes in 2nd half to score. However Eoghan Rua kicked on for win. Was an unusual tactic and brave.

Where did the keeper play?
Full back line i assume?
Did he man mark or simply push out & sweep?
Interesting.
Goalkeepers are becoming innovative!

It was essentially fly keeper but he was at half back a lot because Eoghan Rua were very deep.
