Club Championships - Football 2019

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Was at inter final on Sunday. Caulry were well deserved winners and look very young and fit. Milltownpass tried hard but were outclassed in every position. To leave Caulry center back Maguire roam up the pitch was a big error of judgement on MTPass behalf. 6, 11 and there corner back were very good. 2 finals in a row to loose is tough on MTPass but they might bounce back. I always though Milltownpass were mainly white jerseys?
MTPAss were unlucky for 1 of the goals where the ref deemed a free kick receiver was not far enough away from the ball and he gave the free to Caulry in which they got a goal directly from it. Harsh but i think that is the rule.
Anyways again Intermediate it was a good Championship - Any team has a chance of winning it year on year so no guarantees for anyone.

Was talking to a Milltownpass supporter at the game who told me they had 8 different players starting from last years final, If they get Finbar Coyne back next year they could go one step further next year.

Well done to Caulry on winning Intermediate. Their manager deserves a lot of credit. They looked a completely different team to last year. Their fitness level was very evident on Sunday and they were very well organised for such a young team. They could make a proper go at senior if they stick together.

I was informed on the turnstile that the season ticket is not valid for county finals apparently. Tried to find the T&Cs on the website but they don't seem to be available anywhere. Emailed the CB also but no response from them of course.
Funny that you can get into an All Ireland Club Final with the season ticket, but not a junior or intermediate final in Westmeath.
I suppose I'll have to fork out 15 or 20 quid again this Sunday.

With the intermediate/junior all over and done with who do we all think will win the big one on Sunday?
The more I think about it the more I fancy Garrycastle to do it.
Whatever way it goes I hope it is a close entertaining game.

Season tickets are only for local club games, all club games, if you purchase the Club plus option when you purchase your season ticket. I fail to see why Westmeath can't like Offaly and Tipp and Louth too, I think, have a weekend ticket available for a set fee to enable you to go to all games at weekend. I heard excuse about not doing it before. Laziness most likely. One of the Counties has them up on tickets.ie to purchase.

The Club plus option is the one that I chose when I bought the ticket, with the understanding that it was for all club championship games in the county.
I agree that there should be a weekend pass alright.

Did you have difficulty with your club + ticket at local matches.

It states on the G.A.A. website that the Club+ ticket includes club championship fixtures within chosen county. Last weeks games in Cusack Park were club championship fixtures. Your season ticket should have covered you. You should register a complaint with Croke Park. This is unacceptable and should not be tolerated.

Caulry where by far the best team last Sunday. A couple of soft goals kept mpass in it. They also had tang bet up a stick both days only for a soft goal the first day and a ref keeping them in it the second day. Fair play to them. Very young team.

Bal did enough in the 2nd half to be deserved winners.

Gcastle will have a huge say on Sunday. Keep Mr Heslin low on scores and they will win.

Ref kept them in it on the second day...

Foolish comment, Caulry should have been home and hosed on the first day, why don't you focus in on that. We all give out about referees during a match but I don't see why there is a need that we continue to bash them long after the final whistle. That game was three weeks ago? Sean Sheridan in the paper is right, I don't know how anyone sticks it with all the abuse people are writing lately. I've noticed it in the last year or so, it's almost always criticism online.

I thought both did well last Sunday, daly might have missed a few cards but overall I don't think it impacted on the game. Both were free flowing when they needed to be.

I did mention the soft goal they conceded the first day didn't i? Now I also missed the first 10 mins of the game in Athlone but i said the ref kept tang in it because thats exactly what happened in the 50 mins i seen. alot of other posters seem to agree? Its nothing against tang or caulry btw

I did indeed, I was informed that it wasn't valid for finals. I tried to contact the county board but they don't want to respond.

Yes that's what I would have thought. It states on the gaa website that the T&Cs for the Club+ ticket are laid out by each individual county board, but these are nowhere to be found on the Westmeath website. Maybe you're right about contacting Croke Park.

But I agree with you in saying both Ken Daly and Alan Coyne had great games last sunday. I didnt see any of the players or management teams overly excited with many decisions so thats always a good sign.

Didn't think the ref was too bad on either day myself. Caulry definitely have some good young players there if they can keep them together.
The senior game on Sunday is close to 50/50 imo. Loman's seem to have gone back a bit from a couple of years ago, obviously losing the likes of Sharry and Dempsey this was likely to happen. I know they gave Garrycastle a bit of a hiding in the group, but I think it'll be far closer on Sunday. Keeping Heslin quiet is a task easier said than done but if they can do that they're in with a great shout.

Several lads on here talking about keeping how keeping Heslin quiet is the key for Garrycastle when in fact young Cox has been the standout player for Lomans in this years championship imo. Very direct pacy footballer very hard to handle for defenders

"Keep Heslin quiet" here we go again. If that's Garrycastles focus then they will be in trouble but I doubt that will be the case. Heslin has been trigger happy shooting from 50m with an average return and while he gets on the scoresheet its the other Lomans players winning their games. They have good players all over.

Who is going to keep the garrycastle forwards quiet? They too have a very strong forward line with plenty of quality backup on the bench if one or two of them have an off day.

I agree Garrycastle forwards have been flying this year and the depth off the bench is very strong. In the semi final They had Conor Cosgrove, Ger heneghan, James Sheerin that came off the bench and I also saw Cathal Mannion's name in the program in my opinion he was one of there top forwards last year before a bad knee injury and hasn't played any football this year so i wonder will he be fit? I think on Sunday it will be two top forward lines going toe to toe
