Massive effort and huge shift put in, pitch seemed heavy. Slowed things down a bit

Cargin unlucky on some shot selections some frees going against them also

Wasn’t pretty but tense

Was pretty tense

Although beaten Cargin can stand tall as some said a few chances (Poor shot selections) were missed our lads came close and raised the Saffron profile.

Those who took the ridiculous 1/12 odds offered would need to have brought a change of underwear to Healey Pk.

Took the 1/1 with a seven point start which was a  insult.

Despite the profile Glen are no big deal and our boys will realise they missed a great opportunity.....and saying naught about the stand in ref.......

What happened to the original ref?

Apparently he was caught on a message board and they banned him from the game.

ITV player wouldn’t work for me this week ffs. BBC player working fine! The wee lads in my class are absolutely obsessed with the World Cup but they were all supporting England in the first game. I had to explain we don’t like England winning.

The Saffron Voice lads have invited the whole show to Country Bumpkin’s house if Cargin win this weekend. Fair played to you CB.
Would MR2 be allowed in?

It should always be done that the children in the one school year can all play together.

What is actually happening next year. Is it u17 or u18 next year?
U15 & u17 will go ahead in 2023.
At Congress in  feb, it is expected to vote on return to u18.
Counties will have option to run additonal year groups.
U 17 or U 18s  will not be permitted to play adult football.

So starting from next March or whatever it’ll be u17 but with the option of having another u18 league?? Surely that’ll not work.

His age is absolutely relevant.

A peak or near-peak Ronaldo, driven by success, improves every team in the history of the world.

An end-of-career Ronaldo, driven solely by extending his personal goalscoring feats, weakens any PL side with serious goals of playing CL football.

Sure he was their player of the year and top scorer last year. Finished near the top of the PFA player of the year awards too did he not?

Perhaps highlights the general apathy in Antrim for attending.  we could barely sell out Corrigan for the antrim v cavan championship match earlier in the year.  Cargin from a small rural parish divided 3 ways wasn't going to fill Corrigan.  Don't know if it is a travelling issue for Corrigan or if things would even change if shifted back up the country.  Hard to tell.  Felt like Ahoghill was getting good crowds of neutrals a few years ago.

My geography might be off but I would have thought Cargin had one of the bigger catchment areas from the SW clubs? Granted Creggan are not too far down the road and there is a grey area as to where the club boundaries would be.

Who would have the biggest and smallest catchment areas?

So leave the county Senior Champions with 1 player in the forward line and Aghagallon with 3?  Not sure about that one




No because my point is that the senior championship would have their own players. Cargin, Aghagallon, Creggan, PG1 etc would all have more chance as they wouldn't be up against junior and intermediate players well.

And Paul McCann is a good player but I wouldn't pick him over Adam Loughran. I'd have other Cargin players in before Paul.





I'd have Paul over every mccann brother
The work he does is unseen yet phenomenal for Cargin him and Big Stork two vital cogs in a well oiled machine

Good player surely. But I know when the game is in the balance I'd want Tomas on the ball!

I thought Tomas was good when it mattered today!

Fair played to Cargin! They’re never bate. Some leaders in that team and a lot of the young fellas are showing the same leadership qualities as the aul fellas!
Commiserations to Moneyglass ladies. That’s a great side they faced today.

Watching this glen and errigal match here. Some serious footballers playing. High level stuff!

In other news, 13 hour queuing Beckham is taking the Qatar Cash.

''Whatever about the morality of it all, from a brand perspective, the decision to assume a cultural ambassador role for Qatar to promote the country’s tourism and culture was a highly questionable one, though one for which he is being reportedly remunerated to the tune of £150m.''

https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2022/0921/1324688-beckham-silence-in-step-with-qatari-world-cup-omerta/

For £150m I'd support Down.

£150m! Crazy money!
