I read that this team are being managed by Jayo. Have they shown the potential to stop Kerry and the ‘drive for five’?
Technically the drive for five was stopped this year when Tyrone won the U17 competition, which would have been minor next year only for the change.
The 16 club championship was very competitive this year. Should be a good team. But it’s always very hard to predict at this level.
I suppose your right. I wonder will the management allow dual players. The ban has not worked out so far, apart from this year’s minors.
Worked out fine as far as I’m concerned. Time for both codes to stand on their own and for us to develop both codes equally. Winning at minor is irrelevant. Even more so now that it’s U17. All about getting two or three players through in each code each year.
With Sherlock as manager here, does that mean he is no longer involved in the senior set up?
Sure he was managing the u.16s this year aswell.
I’m sure managing the minor squad would be on a whole different scale in terms of workload, commitment and time in comparison with the 16s.
Hard to see him do both
Lot more difficult alright and spotlight would be on Jayo more with minors

Is that the panel or a call if your own ??
Some of those lads are on both hurling and football and will probably end up dropping one …
I see One definite dual player who is way more likely to go the hurling route iif forced. I suspect its not to be the panel
One already has. Others have been dropped.
Our friend has form when it comes to lashing up lists of players with little to no info or comment of his own.
No harm giving it a lash…
But a deal of it is just waffle.
In fairness if no waffle was a condition, I’d have been banned a long time ago…
On a side note - condolences on the loss of your ex colleague at Ard S - Gerry was a great guy.
He was indeed. One of the better ones
