It’s probably no bad thing but there’s little time for moping over yesterday’s League final pasting as the county’s next significant challenge is heading straight in our direction.
This is in the form of Wednesday evening’s Connacht U20 Championship quarter-final tie between ourselves and Galway, which throws in at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan at 7pm that evening. This is a straight knockout competition, with extra-time and penalties to be used to separate the teams if necessary (as happened in each of the last two years).
Tickets for the game are on sale now and may be purchased here.
The match is also being live streamed by TG4. Even better, they’re streaming it via their YouTube channel, which means I’ll be able to dump the embed code here so the stream will work directly from here too. I’ll get that set up here on the blog well ahead of throw-in on Wednesday evening.
Patreon club members should also watch out for a special pod on the U20s that’ll be online tomorrow. Mike and Rob will be on that one, in which Mike also chats with the U20s manager Maurice Sheridan.
No word on a team for that game yet but I’ll post details of that too once it becomes available.
