James Rogers reporting that Shels are leading 1-0, another fella saying the we're 1-0 up.

The joys of behind closed doors matches.

19 year old keeper too. A worry . No idea who the young chap is or how good he is but you need experience in goals imho a key position in staying up imho.
Could be looking at him as a Number 2 until they find another keeper. Shelbourne had 10 trialists in the Squad.

Apparently Shels had no trialists and we only had three. An issue with the FAI Connect app hadn't updated the line ups correctly. Young Scott Brady scored the equaliser for us from a Daryl Horgan corner.

Just looking at the underage players involved today going by fai connect app, I know we lost a few recently but still surprised to see some of the better 19s from last season not involved today, Coleman is trialing with Drogs but no Honney, Bonner, Mayo, Mullen, those five for me were the pick of our 19s.

Nice to see Paul Doyle in the photos put up by the club, dispells the James Rogers drivel of him being ushered out the door ..

Mullen is meant to have have offers from clubs in Uk and Italy. Thought a Club like Pats would show interest in Senan Mullen ,with Adam Murphy gone. Another player to develop and sell on.

Moyo has a chance of breaking through to senior football but needs to keep the head down. I would've held on to him and give him minutes this year he's definitely got talent. Coleman i think will struggle with the jump from 19s to senior needs to put on 2 stone of muscle

Spot on Trev , both are technically good footballers, Mayo is very good at carrying the ball which frees up space for others , Coleman for me is a great player to watch and can dictate the tempo of a game if let , but as you say gym time required if he is to play senior.

O Kane would have been the same breaking through, fairly light. He has bulked up a bit since then, but would have still have work to do. Some of the top wingers in the league like Neil Ferrugia or Duffy have good upper body strength.

Richie you should never forget that Ryan had to leave the club and play up north and then return. Youth doesnt seem to get a chance for some reason ..... I know a father who will tell you who is to blame, however that is for another day. Lets hope BA has a plan and that local kids are put forward.
