Its time now to look ahead to the stars of our future, the Galway u21’s. This iswhere the lads can put down a marker again and stop Mayo’s dominance at this level. Alan Mulholland is the manager of the team for the coming year, who was ratified in Loughgeorge Saturday, two weeks ago. The Salthill native has set his stall out early and he already has had trail matches for new talent in the age group last Sunday in Galway’s training facility in Loughgeorge. Two teams where hand picked from the clubs in the North Board and the clubs in the West Board and they proceeded to play a match. The north team ran out winners however but some impressive talent was on show.
Bear in mind this is the team that won the 2007 all Ireland minor title so expectation in the county is high. Alan, was manager at the time and he now is looking forward to working with the boys once again. With big names from 2007 which include Paul Conroy & Michael Martin, the omens look good. Galway will look to Conroy as an inspiration and bring his experience from senior into the forefront. The time is now for Galway to steak their dominance in Connacht pre-senior championships once again. We look forward to the year ahead for these boys.
