Introducing the Minor panel

Adam Carey – Broke onto the clubs Senior team this year and made his mark with a series of impressive performances. The Meath Minor can play anywhere in the middle third of the field and with his incredible levels of fitness tends to cover every blade of grass on a pitch over the hour. The team captain and their spiritual leader who always sets the tone for their play.

Adam McCabe – Has returned to the fold over the course of the year, making appearances in two of the three Championship games to date. A pacey forward he is bound to pose difficulties for his marker should he get the opportunity to stretch his legs on the Páirc Tailteann sod.

Alan Mulvany – One of four U-15’s on the panel Mulvany has impressed over the year with the Minors. Blessed with a brilliant turn of pace and stamina levels boosted by a stint of cross country running. Came on to great effect in the opening round victory and is likely to leave his mark on the final.

Brian Maguire – An adaptable player who can play in both defence and attack to great effect. Only sixteen but this impressive footballer rarely plays a game in which he isn’t one of the more impressive performers. Another who has a fine turn of pace he will use it to great effect counter attacking from the back or running at the Duleek/Bellewstown defenders.

Cathal Finnegan – A livewire corner forward Cathal sent over the winning point in the 2014 U-17 League decider. Has a penchant for the spectacular score and has an eye for goal as he proved in the semi-final when grabbing an important one in the first half. Will be no surprise to see him keep the umpires busy in the final.

Colin Walsh – Having missed the 2014 season after impressing at U-16 level in 2013 Walsh is back with a bang this year and has been one of the team’s most impressive performers over the course of the year. An excellent reader of the game the pint sized star has already left his mark on the Junior D Final earlier in the year when he excelled at wing back against Curraha. Will play a key role in pushing forward from half back on Saturday and is a Senior player in the making.

Conor Cantwell – A tidy defender who has played both at wing back and centre back over the course of the year. Excellent in the tackle and composed on the ball he is the type of player every side loves to have among their ranks.

Daire Corcoran – Another to have returned to the fold over the course of the year Daire operates in the forward line where he likes to utilise his pace to unsettle the opposition defenders. Has a keen eye for a score and as he settles back into the game has improved as the year wears on.

Daire Finnegan – Was one of a number of vital switches which helped turn the opening round game against Duleek/Bellewstown in his side’s favour Daire is a vital member of the panel. Still only fifteen he plays with a maturity that belies his age. Can play anywhere across the backline but most likely at this grade to be found at corner back. Guaranteed to put in a big performance if called upon.

Daniel O'Reilly – Wing back on last year’s Minor side Danny has been operating around the middle so far this year. Picked up an injury in the opening round win which ruled him out of the following game but came on against North Meath Gaels in the semi-final. Will be pushing very hard to regain his place for the final where his height could come in very handy as Seneschalstown look to dominate affairs in the middle third.

David Fox – One of the more physical players on the team David has all the potential to be one of the best players on the field in the final. Will be deployed in a central role, anywhere from full back to centerfield and with his ability to kick points from long distance off the ground he will punish any indiscretions from up to fifty metres out from goal.

David Gordon – Has made the goalkeeper spot his own during this Championship run having been operating as a forward earlier in the ear. Poacher turned gamekeeper he has shown that his kickouts are straight from the top drawer as he picks the right option each time. Displayed his shot stopping prowess in the semi-final with a smart stop in the second half and will need to produce a quality display if his side are to lift the trophy.

Dylan Doyle – A hugely talented player Dylan was part of the Junior D outfit that won the Championship earlier in the year. A player who can play anywhere on the field to great effect and one who has the potential to go on to great things. A nephew of Graham Geraghty and like his uncle he has the class to turn any game in his sides favour.

Dylan Keating – A classy player who has a devastating eye for a goal. Hit five goals recently in an U-15 game and possesses one of the sweetest left feet in the county. Has been hugely impressive this year and is a player with huge future. Unable to play for the Meath U-15’s on Saturday due to the Final and while a loss to the Meath team on the day his presence in Páirc Tailteann will be a brilliant boost to his club.

Eoin Finnegan – Has already been a star performer in one Championship Final this year when giving Curraha a torrid time in the Junior D Final. The team’s leader up front Eoin is incredibly accurate both from placed balls and from play. Likely to be keeping umpires busy in Páirc Tailteann for many years to come.

Eoin O'Reilly – A tight marking defender Eoin has found opportunities difficult to come by this year. Was mightily impressive in the 2014 U-17 decider and should he get the opportunity on Saturday will be a key player as Seneschalstown look to lock down the dangerous Duleek/Bellewstown forwards.

Eoin Traynor - Tends to operate as a wing back Eoin has been n very impressive form during the year for the U-16’s. Very comfortable when in possession he is adept at linking the play as his side looks to build the play from the back.

Louis Healy – Started the year as the team’s full back before missing out on their Sumer League adventures. Since returning has found it tricky to reclaim his place such is the competition for starting berths but should he not reclaim his spot in time for the final is likely to be one of the first replacements called upon to improve the team.

Niall Hickey – A player destined to be a cornerstone of the club’s Senior side in years to come Niall has all the attributes one would look for in a leader. Irrespective of where he lines out he will drive his side on relentlessly. When in need of a mental lift in Round 1 he popped up with a brilliant goal while he also chipped in with two superb scores for the U-21’s last weekend. Featured to great effect for the Junior D’s and B’s over the course of the year he will be one of the key players in the decider.

Richard McKeown – Operates as a corner back Richie is the type of tight marking corner back any team requires. Will be looking to continue his impressive form into the final and will be a key member of the Seneschalstown defence.

Robert Wogan – Only sixteen but in his second year playing at Minor Robert is one of the key players in the Seneschalstown forward line. Possesses the great ability to kick points on the run as well as offering an option for kickouts as he puts his height to great use. One player who could set the county grounds alight on Saturday.

Ruairí Keogh – Corner back on the side and one who was a panellist on the Junior B side which won the Championship a few weeks ago. Few corner forwards have enjoyed being marked by Ruairí this year as he tends to give them their fill of it over the hour, getting out in front to win the ball and dispossessing them in the tackle should they manage to get there ahead of him.

Ruairí McDonagh – A very talented shot stopper Ruairí was the net minder earlier in the year before picking up an injury playing for the Junior D’s. Should anything happen to David Gordon he will be a most able deputy and won’t lack for experience having been Minor goalkeeper in 2014 and still eligible for that grade in 2016.

Ryan O'Dowd – Has operated in midfield and the forwards this year as well as being one of the star forwards on the Junior D team. Lit up the semi-final with a brace of goals and having netted crucial goals at various stages of the year he will take a huge amount of watching from the Duleek/Bellewstown defenders on Saturday. If Seneschalstown are to win the Championship this fella could well be the match winner.

Sean Carey – Brother of team captain Adam, Sean tends to operate mostly as a corner back but would love nothing more than to be given licence to thrill as a forward. A superb reader of the game he plays on the front foot and loves nothing more than to take off on an adventure to join in with the attack when he gets his hands on the ball.

Shane Mulvany – A hard working wing forward who has featured intermittently at wing back during the year. Shane chipped in with a point in the semi-final and is a player who tends to take the unselfish option and pick out a teammate often instead of attempting the shot. Will be eager to make his mark on the final and no doubt will cause the Duleek/Bellewstown defence problems.
