Any ideas of new players John Evans could bring in to help strengthen the squad for the coming year?

Puma as far as I know Evans brought about 30 or 40 players from around the county on to a development squad, including players from smaller clubs and players from the North. I don't know what came of it.

i am sure John Evans will be interested in seeing how the Moyle Rovers players perform against Kerins O'Rahillys on Sunday. Players that I have heard mentioned for next year are Ciaran McGrath and Derek Bourke from Loughmore and David Buckley (Inane Rovers).

Dara Egan would be a great addition to the squad in my opinion..he played international rules u 17 i think! Would be a big physical presence on the field.. something i think Tipp need!

Michael Doyle of Killanaule and Kevin Harny of Commercials are two lads who i thought would definately break onto the scene a few years ago but they seemed to have disappeared altogether??

Both are victims of long term injuries as far as i know. Harney lacked pace for intercounty at minor level so i dont think he would have made the step up.

Michael Webster would be a great adition to the div 2 set up? With his build and talent he could slot in nicely at midfield/full forward
I also think players such as the morrissey brothers from galtee will be needed if we are to compete in div.2

Lads its great to be talking about Tipp in Div 2 of Football.Exciting Stuff when you look at the fixtures for next season. I agree with some names mentioned e.g. Webster for one as I have heard he will give up the hurling.Darragh Egan is a fine footballer played against him in the North Championship on a few occasions & his very physical & good on the ball.

Any of last year's Under 21's come through to the Senior Set - Up has anyone heard yet??Great credit to John Evans & the lads & lets hope to see them stay in Div 2.I for one will be going to as many games I can in the league as how often can you see some of the big teams taking on Tipp in competitive football!!

Hopefully we can stay in Division 2, if we can't win some home games we can forget about it. Fermanagh and Wexford struggled this year and went straight back down. There are some very good teams in Division 2. Kildare in my opinion are in the top 4/5 in the country now.

As far as I can tell Evans position is full time. A fully fit Seamus Grogan should be included in his squad.

If you are moving or thinking about moving to London and are interested in playing gaelic football then why not think about joining North London Shamrocks GFC. The North London Shamrocks are based in the Enfield area of North London. Players of the club hail from all over the north London area. We have our own training facilities and are also one of the very few London clubs who have access to their own pitch.

North London Shamrocks are a very progressive club and reached the London intermediate football final in 2008 where we were beaten in a replay. We have a thriving underage club and we entered a reserve team into competition for the first time this year. We're also a very friendly bunch of lads and always welcome new faces down to the club. If you're interested in playing Gaelic football and expanding your social network please get in touch.

divison 2 football, exciting stuff, we'll need to push hard but i believe we can do well, maybe get a few of the younger fellas in so with experience we can make a promotion push in the next 2/3 years

Out of interest who are the contenders for the tipp u21 A football championship in 2010? Should the county side do a bit better next year at u21 level, they seemed well organised
