Minors have claimed the Ulster A Final
Our minors have claimed the ulster A title against Donegal, with four points to spare in a well contested game.
This title has not come Monaghans way for well over ten years and it took a spirited performance from these youngsters to kick-start a revival of top tier football.
Plenty of great talent abounds in this team and they have produced many great displays during the campaign to date.
With leaving cert exams around the corner, the players will not resume the remainder of the competition until the 20th of July when they meet neighbours and Leinster winners Meath in the All Ireland semi-final
Monaghan seniors are continuing their preparations for the ulster semi-final appearance with a tie against Armagh to look forward to. Last weekend seen them embark on a training camp in Donegal, with a full weekend of activities and specalised training. While the small panel of players is not what Monaghan is used to, they have blended well together nevertheless and the younger contingent have improved well throughout the league and with this behind them, they will have a major say in the ulster semi-final against Armagh
U16's - out by minimalist of margins
The U16's didn't return the A title to Monaghan this year, however they came very close indeed. At half time they were behind by two, but the second half seen them come storming back to go three ahead with ten minutes left. However, Cavan refused to wilt and turning on the style, they outscored Monaghan by four points in those last minutes to win by one. This year has been a great journey for these Monaghan players as they grew in confidence with each game they played, producing some great displays along the way. The players, management and helpers have to be congratulated on the dedication and commitment to the team and no doubt - the future we will see most of these players making it onto the senior squad with the talent they possess.
