I WENT along to see the Plunketts win the Minor FC and well done to each and every one of them. Frank Taaffe would have been proud and was probably their 16th man on the day.
Now, if the Louth boss was in attendance, there was a young fellow up front for the Drogheda side called Luke Haggins who is probably one of the best options as a full forward the county is going to get in the next few years. It's at times like this that we need an Elite Training Panel, taking guys like this, with the physique to make it, to one side and bringing them on with one to one coaching. His second goal was all about strength and he has that in abundance, never mind the sweetest left foot you will ever see.
Seem to recall a Haggins playing with Drogheda Celtic FC some years ago and he could belt a ball too!
