Re: Senior B Football 2018

Spoke with the manager of the 2nd team after one of their grooup games, and he said they don't train, have no game plan, just go out , enjoy themselves and attack, attack, attack!!! :lol:
Maybe a bit of re-thinking for both teams next season.

Re: Junior A Football 2018

It's with Tommy Byrne & CCC as it will decide who goes into play-offs between both teams. Saying a team played a guy under a different name and that this guy was also underage is one thing. Proving this is a completely different thing. It may be the truth, and by all accounts it is, as the player wa...

"Allegedly" Clonmore played an U17 player under another eligible players name in the match V Ballinagar.
Came to light straight away as the said player was well known to some of the Ballinagar team/supporters through school, who knew he was underage.

Re: Junior A Football 2018

Kilclonfert 4-19 Harps 1-05

That's Kilclonfert and Gaels into Semi's from that group. No surprises there.

Looks like Rhode & Clara in the other.

Re: Junior A Football 2018

Heard rumours this week of an objection by Ballinagar into their defeat at Clonmore Harps, as it is "alleged" Harps fielded an U17 player under a different name! How this came to light is the player in question was personally known to many of the younger Ballinagar players who knew he was too young ...

Re: Offaly Senior Football Manager

It's hard to see if any on those listed could 'inspire' any more that what has gone before.

The system they have to work in is the real problem!

Re: Intermediate Football Championship 2018

It's got to be up to the CCC to decide on this one. I believe Brigids have asked for a resolution and for the W/O to be scratched. One to watch as it will affect who qualifies for semis or Q/Fs in this division.

Clonbullogue v Shannonbridge - Shannonbridge St Brigid’s v Doon - St Brigid’s Ballycommon v KK - Ballycommon Daingean v Tullamore - Daingean Shannonbridge won by 1, tighter than I expected. Brigids easy win as predicted. Ballycommon plenty to spare over depleted KK Daingean score 2 late points to f...

Re: Intermediate Football Championship 2018

Just looking at the Offaly GAA website. I note that St Brigid’s gave Ferbane a walkover. Does anyone know the scéal on that one? I noticed that rounds 8 and 9 are being played as opposed to rounds 3 and 4. Would that have anything to do with it? I believe St. Brigids have written confirmation of a ...

Re: Senior A Football 2018

By all accounts Cappincur absolutely threw this one away at the end. Couldn't kick a point from 20 yards several times.
Looks like Rhode V Tullamore, not much else shining?

Re: U20 football championship

If I'm not mistaken, Offaly ran Kildare close at U18 two years ago, but look at the difference 2 years later. Kildare went on to a good win over Dublin. Hopefully the Faithful Fields development will lead to better improvent in underage teams. Kildare put their money into Hawkfield 10 years ago and ...
