Adult Football League 1 (AFL1) 2019


#62

Correct - Brian Kavanagh is Longford man. Was of belief that one of the half forwards was an outsider; and Pat Duggan an outsider too?

Boden - Is O’Reilly an outsider? Then I pushed the boat out with the subs as I wasn’t 100% sure, but @Wallopeddonkey said they’d none!

If they aren’t, then the number falls below the 12, and @Patsy will be the one who’s “very surprised”


#63

Fairly sure Darren O’Reilly has been with Boden since underage although his dad is a Synge St man


#64

some bye law is that if your with a club in the county you are declared for the parentage rule was overruled and you arent intercounty eligible until you play championship for the new club


#65

|Vins have 6 by my count, unless your counting Concarr thats 7 then


#66

Kavanagh hardly featured last year, and Duggan is a crokes man his father coaches the 2nd team


#67

the good work of last 10 years in Juvenile will still take time to bring through to adult and i use adult advisedly as opposed to senior…
it could equally be argued an over reliance on 2009 panel caused a dip in numbers coming through to senior, very few home grown between 24 and 30 there now…

It is a balancing act to remain an open friendly club to all comers and keep home grown players happy… as a 40 year old club with such a restricted catchment area a number of incoming players will probably always be needed to keep competing at a high level.

No incoming player has received any inducements in any event and there are 2 sets of brothers where the younger followed the longer established older brother


#68

Looks like Dessie can sign a few and still be well behind the neighbours. :hugs:


#69

It would be interesting to go through full league and list the outsiders playing . The problem with Jude’s apart from the amount is all the players seem to be county or ex county . Boden crokes brigids Davis maurs fins and probably more all added together probably wouldn’t come to Jude’s totally .


#70

Would the hurlers have many outsiders


#71

I am not the one surprised. I was fairly sure that Crokes only had one, Boden none and wasn’t sure about Vins. The Judes numbers are surprising but if you’re desperate for success !!


#72

They might consider changing their name too. St. Jude is the Patron Saint of hopeless cases! :no_mouth:


#73

I don’t know if you picked a few decent players, you could close the gap between the teams. :wink:


#74

We’ll see what the February transfer window brings … :wink:


#75

Kavanagh hasn’t played for a couple years.


#76

Could it be Pat Burke? He played juvenile with Judes. Played soccer with UCD. Started playing with Crokes at junior level and was promoted to senior team after a couple matches. His father from Clare would have played with Crokes too.


#77

4 or 5 on the panel all here all few years now


#78

Have many younglads from the last 3/4 years minor teams from Jude’s played for the first team over the last few seasons


#79

None even though they won all round them and many played for Dublin minors and 20s. All now playing junior B or given up and psd off with all the overpaid county players coming in stealing their starting places :roll_eyes:


#80

Burke is Hardly a blow in. Played a bit in school while his father played for crokes and won an all ireland. Burke has played for seniors since mid 2000s


#81

what did they win all round them ??
