U20 Championship match on Wednesday to be live streamed by TG4

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.

  1. Really do not know who votes on these things.I said on Saturday I could not see us dping anything against Kerry and God knows I have no special insight.My view is Ryan was head and shoulders above everyone else and Aidan actually did ok but has slowed a bit.We are in bother v Galway even with returning players but like it or not we are in transition.
    It will take a few years for a good championship team.Fair play to our support again.

  2. The u20 competition should be used to develop and improve players. For forwards that means improving their movement on and off the ball to create space, working ball into the scoring zone and kicking comfortably off both feet.
    What we saw from the u20s last year against Galway and Roscommon had none of this. 13 players behind the ball with no game plan to create scores. We got lucky against Galway but got really shown up against Roscommon who went out and played football the way it should be played.
    If our tactics and game plan is the same this year we will end up scoring 4-5 points from play. Maurice Sheridan won a Sigerson with nuig this year – but in reality these lads were all training with their county teams so Sheridan had no time to impose his game plan on the team.

  3. It is, Seanie – we’ve been drawn against Galway in each of the last two years and both times the tie had to be decided on penalties on the night. They won that way in 2020 and we won last year. Shocking method to settle a knockout championship fixture.

  4. It is Seanie, all teams got a few league games before this knock out championship.

    On another note the throw in time for Mayo v Galway senior game on April 24th is 4pm

  5. Any sign of mayo team. Any of the lads involved in senior panel. I see Galway have mc grath and 6 and mc loughlin midfield who both came on as subs in croker on Sunday. Should be a good game and never much between the two sides.
