Here it is, the team of the second week of Championship

teamofweek2

Plenty of well known faces in there this week! remember folks, only a bit of fun! defencewk2

Defence

Nathaniel Cooney pulled off a crucial-crucial save in the Gers win over the Gaels. A goal in such a tight game would have swung the tie so that save made him a match winner there and then.The Westerns held the Kevins to one point from play James Ward at Full back takes the credit for the collective defensive meanness. Simon Flynn won the tussle at edge of his own square and it was enough to give the young Irelands their first two points. County Man Pop Rath was solid as usual for the Seasiders on Sunday. midfieldweek2

The Middle Third

Ray Finnegan still has plenty to offer and his driving runs are a pleasure to see for the Pats. Another former county man Gerry Hoey was the spearhead to Gers rearguard. Ending and Starting attacks in equal measure. Patrick McGrath swept to great effect for Cooley, he was key in their comeback win over the O’Connells. County Minor Ryan Ward kicked 1-3 in their defeat of the Joes. Conor Grimes in the middle gives the Glen Emmets a serious look of Junior Champions about them.

Forwardline

Surprise package Na Piarsaigh’s Alan McCartney for that monster free kick alone gets in the team. Pepe Smyth is possibly the classiest forward in Louth at the moment, does his good form now make them Championship favourites? Louth squad member Ruairi Moore is also a player in supreme form,The Raths man kicked the leveller aswell as being everywhere in their draw against the Pats. Conall McKeever singlehandedly brought the charge for the Clans last weekend kicking 2-7, 2-3 from play. Okay seriously, jokes over, William Woods needs to be in a red Jersey sooner than later. 2-10 the weekend!? he is just a scoring machine, he kicked two 45’s to cement his potential even further. Last but not least Tadhg McEneaney again just continues to make waves.

Well what do you reckon??

Only thing stopping William woods or Cian Doyle wearing a red jersey is themselves. Happy being big fishes in small ponds…it’s a problem all over the county

Peter Thornton had a great game all over the pitch for Cooley. Gary O’Hare for Na Piarsaigh kept both his men scoreless & his kick passing was excellent in the awful weather in Dowdallshill. Cian Doyle should be in a Louth jersey next year as well.
