Louth Minor final

(Oldest Posts First)

Its extremely rare in Louth gaa history that the same two clubs feature in a minor final in consecutive years.

it hasnt happened in my lifetime before and i wonder has it ever happened...

the big question is can Naomh Mairtin do what they almost did in 2015 and beat the men from Newfoundwell

everyone knows all about the Blues' conveyor belt of talent - going back to 2014 they have swept the boards at minor level in both league
and championship, but the Jocks have plenty of quality too - they had 3 starters on the county minor team this year

my own preference would be for a Jocks win as they have never won a minor title in their own right. whereas the Blues have won plenty and the historians within their club will know that it will be a long time before they get another opportunity to repeat the minor 3 in a row of 1956/7/8

this should be an entertaining curtain raiser to the Senior final.

Opinions welcome!!

I would love to see the Jocks win it. It should be a good high scoring match and I would not surprised if there was another draw.

UP the Martins...... looking forward to the game and especially the duel between Ross ans Sam. That lad Jamie could hold Sam to 3 or 4 points from play but hopefully the other Martins forwards will step up and Claim the day.

Congrats to the young Jocks on winning their first minor title as a single club.

The second half performance by the Jocks was an extremely impressive display of clever, attacking football. I reckon they scored 3-10 without reply, before conceding that last minute goal. Mulroy and Whelan are a class apart. Callaghan was imperious and popped up to score a great point from full back, The work ethic of the whole team was noticeable throughout too. For anyone there with young kids, it was a great example of how football can and should be played. Great credit to Ray Lambe and his back room team, for bouncing back from last year and delivering in such style. The club has made a big investment in underage, and yesterday will surely be the first of many good day on the back of that. Finally back to Mulroy. He has shown the skill, character and leadership to suggest a big future in the Louth jersey is possible. Thought he was a magnificent captain in all he did yesterday.

Congrats to the Jockogs. Some second half performance. If they can help going like the Valley Rangers of of 2002 the Jocks will have a very bright future.

If this forward line took the field for Louth we might have a bright future too :-

Ryan Burns Sam Mulroy Dereck Crilly
Danny Connor Pepe Smith Conor Grimes.

Talented youth and proven experience. The thought and who the other 9 might be will help get over the winter.

A lot of talent on show at the match yesterday. Some excellent passages of play. However, I would caution against throwing the lads mentioned above and some others into a senior panel before they have matured physically or indeed mentally. Let them progress to U21 level and perhaps a Junior level before putting additional pressure on them. And I would include young Burns in that group too!

That was PP and Boyles that banned it, local bookies had prices, as its not outlawed.

like i said banned, but not outlawed, i believe the lad who told me. And i agree with it being banned too, gambling is a massive problem, with teams putting money on themselves as motivation nearly.

Park King and Quay are the only local bookies who bet on Local games and none of them priced the Minor final...... i rest my case. Betting on Minor GAA matches is banned full stop.........
