O’Dempsey’s 1-8 Colt 2-4Laois GAA JFC ‘B’ Final ReplayIt is rare that you find two teams that are so evenly matched but the 2009 Junior ‘B’ football final managed to provide us with that rarity. O’Dempsey’s and Colt, one footballing stronghold with the other known more for it’s hurling exploits, went to battle in what will be one of most memorable lower grade finals in a long time.Following a scrappy final which saw O’Dempsey’s land a last minute free make sure O’Dempsey’s lived to fight another day, the two teams met a week later in Timahoe and there was huge anticipation for another classic.Not only were the two games very tight but the scripts played out very much the same way. As they did in the first game, O’Dempsey’s had a last minute free to decide the game, only this time it was to win the game and claim the Junior ‘B’ title.Mark McCormack was the man of the hour, who kicked the winning free to bury the pain of the previous three years having been forced to a replay in 2006 against Mountmellick and 2007 against Ballylinan, losing both.The game, was as previously mentioned, panned out much like the initial encounter, with Colt bursting out of the block, causing serious havoc but inevitably were unable to sustain that level of intensity and O’Dempsey’s reeled them in.It was the hero Mark McCormack who rattled home an O’Dempsey’s goal which seemed to spring the Killenard club back into life. Colt responded with goal but it didn’t seem to stop O’Dempsey’s momentum, and Barry Kelly was very impressive from the dead ball to keep the scores coming.Two more points from Barry Kelly and Rory Bracken leveled the game, after Colt’s standout player, Eddie Dunne sent a goal bound effort smashing off the post. With time almost up, the game look destined for another draw.Not quite! A free was won around 55 yards out from goal, and Mark McCormack was called upon to try and win the game and he just that with ball a cracking effort, causing serious celebrations and the final whistle wasn’t long following, setting the heartbreak for Colt and the joy for O’Dempsey’s.Scorers – O’Dempsey’s: Barry Kelly 0-5 (0-4 frees), Mark McCormack 1-1 (0-1 free), Rory Bracken 0-2 (0-1 free).

The Magpies are in the process of being overtaken by the group, who would instantly transform the club into the richest, at least relating to owners, in the league if they are successful.Their plan, according to Sport via Guillem Balagué, is to turn them into another Manchester City, although financial limitations from Financial Fair Play mean it will be a slower process than the one they’ve enjoyed at the Etihad.Nonetheless, there is a strategy in place for the club to build a ‘spectacular infrastructure’ to improve both the club and the city.The first step is finding a more high-profile name as manager, and according to the newspaper, there are four on the list; Mauricio Pochettino, Rafa Benítez, Massimilano Allegri and Julian Nagelsmann.Pochettino is ‘the first on the list’, with him available on a free after leaving Tottenham earlier this season with the others presumably to be targeted if they can’t get the Argentine.Benítez is a sensible inclusion given his previous association with the club and the widespread disapproval of his departure, with it likely the new owners are looking at him as an attempt to win approval from the fanbase early on.Balagué offers nothing more than that the Magpies are interested in all four, which would suggest nothing is going on with any of them at this moment in time.He has a close relationship with Pochettino and would be one of the first to report if there was a significant update, so the fact he hasn’t means Newcastle fans may be waiting a while before seeing their dream appointment in the dugout.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameThe Most Addictive Game of the Year 2019Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
