Offaly have two more massive Leinster Championship games this week with the Minor and U-20 footballers in action.

Wednesday evening sees a huge game for the Offaly minors as they travel to Navan to take on Meath. A strong Meath team are the only side in Group 1 with a 100% record with a win over Dublin to their name. Offaly lost out to Dublin when the sides met in late May. 

A win for Offaly would catapult them into the joint lead at the top of the Group with a game against Louth to come. 

It promises to be a cracking local derby and Offaly fans are being urged to get out in force to support their county

Meanwhile the Offaly U-20 footballers are on home soil this Saturday afternoon as they look to secure a place in a provincial final when they take on Kildare. Offaly, fresh from a good win over Westmeath, have been one of the form teams in the grade and confidence is surely sky high in the camp. Kildare finished second in Division 2 and accounted for Carlow with relative ease last weekend. Offaly had previously beaten Carlow by 12 points themselves.

It promises to be a cracking local derby and Offaly fans are being urged to get out in force to support their county.
