Ulster Under 14 Gold Final 2019

Tyrone V Monaghan    @Emyvale Saturday 1pm

Tyrone and Monaghan will go for gold on Saturday with the new look Ulster Under 14 series reaching the final stages. The near neighbours meet in the gold final, both coming in to the tie on a back of very impressive group games.

The new format “Festival of football” introduced at the start of the year has provided teams with two games a day over the course of the Ulster series. Tyrone have lost just two games and in the end those results edged the Red Hand girls out of the Platinum decider. There was little between the top four in Ulster and all four will be confident going forward in the new look all Ireland series that begins on the 27th.

For now though it’s the Ulster final for Kevin Mc Crystal’s Tyrone and there’s no denying the work the girls have put in and the commitment shown over the past few months. This group have emerged through the Tyrone Academy. They have developed their skills under expert coaching and preparation.

The manager is delighted that Tyrone have achieved the first of their targets;

“All the teams in the Under 14 championship are in the same boat. Everyone is looking ahead to the new look all Ireland group games. We face a tough day against Kerry, Wexford and Louth in Offaly but our only focus for now is this gold final,  We set out at the start of this season to make progress and to reach the final. We have achieved that first target but there’s a lot more for this group of players.”

Mc Crystal and his backroom team have been hugely impressed with the way the players have come together, worked so hard and the way they have performed through what could have been a difficult format, two back to back games on the one day,

“It has been tough but on the plus side we were able to use the squad, girls got game time and we have plenty of selection headaches for this final. We have a talented group all going well.”

There’s no doubting Tyrone will have to be at their best on Saturday against a talented Monaghan, home territory for them although that’s not an issue for Tyrone. In the group game the young Red Hand girls enjoyed a five point win, both teams have improved since that encounter.

A good start will be vital in this contest and fitness will play a part too. To that end Tyrone are well placed. This has all the hall marks of producing plenty of good open football.

The Tyrone management meanwhile took time out of the preparation to pay tribute to a very “supportive” group of parents and a big group of sponsors who have been so generous.
