Any word on how the U20s are shaping up? The new development league starts this date next month.

Like the Senior County players they were basically back with their clubs for April. They did have a few challenge games I believe prior to breaking up and went reasonably well I hear. But of course challenge games don't count for much other than giving the Management an idea of a panel and team.
They are back training tomorrow and will probably have a couple of challenge games at least over the coming weeks.
Barry Callaghan is looking after them and is a good guy!

Anyone know who is on the panel?

The ones I heard are Jordan Morris, Cian McBride, Cathal Hickey, James O'Hare, Aaron Lynch, Cathal Finnegan and Andrew Beakey.

Andrew Beakey, James O'Hare, Harry O'Higgins, Cathal Hickey, Eoin Harkin, Oisin Martyn, Cian Swaine, Sean Ryan, John Keane, Liam Byrne, Robbie Clarke, Danny Dixon, Daithi McGowan, Cian McBride, Connell Ahern, Conor Frayne, Luke Mitchell, Matthew Costello, Aaron Lynch, Cathal Finnegan, Jordan Morris, Luke Kelly, Saran O'Finnagan, Dylan Keating (I think), Oran Smullen, Sean Bannon.
That's all the lads I can remember.
Shane Walsh and Adam Murphy unfortunately couldn't commit. Both would have been enormous additions. Still an awful lot of talent there especially from 8-15

Have any other clubs had access to the players they have on this panel?

Our lads have only been available for championship football since the start of February - which is odd since the U-20s collective training isn't allowed to start until 1st March and their championship doesn't start until late June.......

Sounds like a very exciting group of players . Yes I thnk that Shane Walsh & Adam Murphy would be starters for certain but they will probably end up in the Senior setup anyway this year

Yeah I have seen a few u20 players play in league games for their clubs.

I did hear once that a challenge was organised on the same day as a round of club league games but that's all I heard.

All bar 1 league game when a challenge was organised which isn't bad going in fairness

Our under 20's were available for league games and all championship games bar one game where there was a clash! The 20's did not train in April and were left to their clubs
