Last Season: 7th

Record: Won 5 Drew 3 Lost 10 Pts 44 Goals For 32 Goals Against 56

Coach: Trevor Dagg

Captain: Andy Walker

Players In: None

Players Out: Mikey Fry (Bray), Ross Murray (Corinthians)

Summary: YM look an interesting proposition this season as they definitely have the most potential for the future. Richard Pedreschi, Shane O’Donnell and Geoff Walker have all been added to the squad from the youth section while Irish Development squad member David Robinson is becoming a force in midfield. Ross Murray left with YM’s ‘blessing’ given their embarrassment of riches in goal but Will Powderly’s aborted move to Glenanne will help nurture the youngsters up to division 1 standard. YM, though, are looking more at a three year plan rather than selling their souls for an All-Ireland position. Success this year would be steady improvement on last year and the laying of good foundations.

First three games: TRR (a); Pembroke (a); Corinthian (h)

Prediction: 6th
