No Straight Ball!

Try this game with your teams. Only play it for about 10 minutes at a time and point out beforehand that your intentionis to force players on the ball to look left and right for a pass and to encourage those who want the ball to move left and right to receive. The ball must not be passed into the corners of the pitch [dead space] but players may make decoy runs into these areas. So, a player in possession may not play the ball straight up or straight down the pitch. Every pass must be diagonal or lateral: All support runs likewise. Played at its best, this game will lead to the ball ending up in front of goal, with players constantly running to support or to draw opponents away from the action. It may be used with teams as young as your top U10s or as experienced as your seniors.

Having maintained National League Division 1 status this year the Seniors are now looking forward with excitement and enthusiasm to this year’s Championship. Looking back on the National League, there were good performances against the top teams in the country, Monaghan, Dublin and Cork. However, as the old saying goes “it’s points that make prizes” and despite these strong performances Tyrone failed on to come out with a victory in those games. Wins against either Meath or Laois would have seen the team competing in the National League Semi-final. Senior manager Gerry Moane and his coaching team will be working hard before the Championship throw-in on June 16th to ensure that Tyrone Ladies will be a match for any team and don’t be at all surprised
to see the Ulster Championship reside in Tyrone come July.
