Some draw last night...who in the world could have foreseen that we'd get drawn with Clonduff? That'll be the end of the road for our lads surely...in fairness we are miles off Burren and Kilcoo so it makes no odds whether we play Clonduff now or a better team later as there's a big gulf. Streamed the Burren game last night and I fancy them to win the whole thing. Two easy fixtures has given them a chance to give lots of lads plenty of football and not have to risk any injured players like Fegan and Toner. Liam Kerr and Danny Magill are different gravy. Kilcoo will be worried about Burren IMO...The rest of the teams in the county are a side act...County board will surely keep Kilcoo and Burren apart in the semi finals hoping for a showpiece event.

Not much excitement other than our game this wkend. Should be a good crowd there on Sunday night. Fancy Mayobridge to do enough against Bredagh, they'll win by 2/3 pulling up. Castlewellan will fancy their chances against Glenn but that game will be close and I think Glenn will edge it. Carryduff and Longstone will be tight as well but I think Carryduff will see it through.

Truth hurts

Thats correct the CCC will fix the draw to ensure Kilcoo play Burren in the final ::)

If the Point doesn't win this weekend, I think it's the last chance for the so-called golden generation to win a championship as Burren is going to get stronger for the next few years. Looking at underage I cannot see CPN producing the same caliber of players in the next number of numbers as the other big division one clubs around them. Will the Warrenpoint committee be happy with a league title?

I'm presuming the 4 teams already into the quarter finals will be kept apart and each will end up playing a round three?? winner or are all 8 teams entered into an open draw?

It'll be seeded. Round 2 winners play a Round 3 qualifier.

Thought as much.
Those pesky members of the CCC will keep Burren and Kilcoo apart yet again..
