GAA | Allianz Football League Division 4 preview

In his debut series of articles for The Season Ticket, Chris Coady previews every team competing in the 2020 Allianz Football League.

In this edition, he looks ahead to what we can expect from Division 4 this spring.



After a disappointing drop down to Division 4 last year, this year's league campaign could end in Croker for the Carlow boys, and it is a great chance for some of the Eire Og players to carry their excellent form - which saw them make a Leinster SFC appearance in late 2019 - into the intercounty setup.

One to watch- Paul Broderick


Seven straight defeats last year meant a rock bottom finish for Sligo and they were sent back down to Division 4 with a whimper. Along with a poor Connacht championship things couldn’t get much worse in 2020. Surely not?

One to watch- Kevin McDonnell Waterford

The Deise fod themselves midtable last year and forWaterford it’s as if that’s as good as it can get for them.

Although I wouldn’t be surprised to see them about the top half again this year.

One to watch- Gavin Crotty


The Garden County haven’t enjoyed much success in recent years and I can’t see this changing in 2020 as the summit of Division 4 is a stretch too far in my eyes.

They decided to hit the reset button over the winter and held open trials for the county panel so it will be interesting to see how it pans out for them.

One to watch- Ciarán Hyland


The yellow bellies excite my this year with the appointment of Paul Galvin only time will tell how he steadies the ship there.

Losing 2 key panel players to Davy Fitz’s hurlers wasn’t a great start for the former Kerry footballer.
