Leinster under-age round-up

Leinster under-age round-up

On Saturday next Wicklow will play host to Meath in the first round of the leinster minor’A’ championship.The venue for this game is in Eire-Ogs GAA complex in Greystones, and the throw-in has been fixed for 2:30.
Wicklow won the minor ‘B’ championship last year, by beating Offaly by three points 2-14 to3-8, however this year Wicklow will be without the services of a number of experienced players who do not qualify for minor this season. Meath are the bookies favourites to bag the three points in this first round game.
U/16 ‘A’ championship At the half way stage in the U/16 leinster championship, Dublin are in pole position with three wins out of three games played, the Dubs are followed by Laois in second position with two wins out of three, but the girls from the capital have the upper hand on the O’Moore side, haven beaten Laois in the second round by a margin of eleven points (3-12 to 1-8), while Kildare, Westmeath and Meath are level on three points apiece, with the Model county still to notch up their first win of the season.

U/16’B’ championship
Wicklow maintain their unbeaten run in the U/16’B’ championship, but keeping the pressure on the garden county are Longford and Louth, who are only two points behind the Wicklow side, Offaly are in fourth position followed by Carlow and Kilkenny.

U/14 ‘A’ championship
The girls from the Royal county are in the driving seat in the U/14 ‘A’ championship, after seeing off their nearest rival Dublin by the narrowest of margins (1-12 to 3-5) in their first round game, and Laois who are in joint second position were unlucky to be beaten by the same margin (1-6 to 2-4) by the Dubs in their second round game. Which means that the fourth round game between Meath and Laois should be a very close encounter.
Last years all Ireland winners, Wicklow are in fourth position, despite a couple of below par performances in their last two games, they are due a change of fortune over their remaining games in the championship.
Kildare and Wexford are in fifth and sixth place and are more than capable of collecting points in the second half of the championship.

U/14’B’ championship
Westmeath are in unstoppable form in the U/14’B’ championship, with three wins out of three games, however, they have not played Louth or Offaly, who are in second and third position on the table respectively.
Longford are in fourth place, having collected all three points from their third round game against Offaly (4-1 to 0-12).
Kilkenny and Carlow are in fifth and sixth place, and will gain great experience competing in this years U/14 championship.
