Lamb who is an international languages student in UCD spoke to Dublin LGFA today “it’s a huge honour to captain the Dublin U21’s this year. The panel has a nice blend of new faces alongside girls that I have been playing club football with since I was U11. Eight of my fellow club mates are on the panel which is pretty special for me. Preparations have been going well and already we have built up a great camaraderie between us all”.

Speaking about the new look U21 tournament which is being played over the June bank holiday weekend Lamb said “I expect the blitz format to provide us with a new challenge as there will be a lot of football played across hopefully two days of competition. We are hoping to put in some good performances and with any luck repeat the results of the last two years”.

Muireann Ni Scanaill from St Margaret’s has been named a U21 vice Captain.

The new U21 blitz replaces the Aisling McGing U21 championship with the 2016 tournament taking place on the weekend of the 4th and 5th of June in Naomh Mearnog GAA club, Portmarnock.

Dublin are pooled in Group 1 alongside Cavan, Longford, Mayo, Monaghan and Limerick. While 2013 U21 Champions Cork are joined in Group 2 by Galway, Kildare, Meath and Tyrone. Roscommon who were originally pooled in group 2 have withdrawn from the competition.

Full details including fixtures and times are due to be confirmed shortly by the LGFA.
