Massive result for Loughinisland last night.
With Rostrevor at home next week they should hold on to 4th place.

Who is managing Loughinisland?

45% of reserve league division 2 games were conceded this year. It's time for the reserve leagues to be given back to the divisional boards.

Loughinsialnd are managed by Kevin Duffin and Collie McCrickard, they are in pole position and if Rostrevor cannot stop Oisin Savage on Friday then It will be the Island joining Kilcoo, Burren and the Bridge in the league play-off. Savage is special and he is someone who we should have on S and C programme already. Is there any update on the senior management, Plans need to be in place for 2023 already?

Do agree with Truth on the Divisional Boards for reserves - Cost of fuel is wild these days and for us our closest away day was against RGU at the weekend. Every other one was Newry, Bandbridge or Belfast. RGU would be same boat as us for the travelling tbf. Closer the teams are seem to be more likelihood of fielding

If clonduff and Loughinisland both win do clonduff not take 4th spot on head to head?

That's right if RGU are beaten and Clonduff and Island win then Clonduff are up. Clonduff might just shade their game V Mayobridge as they have more at stake but I don't think they will be getting much favors from their neighbours.

Every game means something so it leaves for an exciting end to this first phase , Ballyolland host Warrenpoint in a must-win as If CPN win they go 4 points clear from them. We could start to see some more outliers after the weekend's fixtures.

Massive weekend of fixtures ahead. Loughinisland will dispatch Rostrevor easily IMO. Kilcoo will be aiming to be the only one of the ‘big four’ at the start of the year to beat RGU who have already beaten the bridge Clonduff and Burren. I think Ballyholland will beat Warrenpoint as the point are very short again this week. Carryduff will easily beat the Town and I have a sneaking feeling Bryansford will go and beat Burren this Friday as Burren seem to be trying their best to not show their hand in the league. They’ve dropped points to Rostrevor, RGU and Ballyholland already and I think Ford will make that another scalp taken. Unlike Kilcoo, Burren don’t seem to have the stomach or hunger to win every week like the best teams do. Kilcoo want to win every game like their life depends on it, doesn’t mean they’ll always get the result but they never take a game lightly. Burren always struggle to get motivated for the less strong teams in the division, shown once again this year. That’s the difference between Kilcoo and the rest…

Glenn Minors playing Aghaderg in a league final tonight, it seems the CB thought the best place for this game would be on a nice local pitch in Dromara

Div 4 league, Glenn need to play at a higher level at underage, they always win low levels and should be pushed up.
 I would imagine the reason for Dromara is pitch availability. I am sure every senior team trains tonight but blame the county board as there is no way they would not have asked Banbridge, Annaclone, Drumgath etc ::)

The Bosco bridge final is at Tullylish. Able to accommodate due to having a second pitch. As you say senior training on most places.

Huge scoreline for Teconnaught, I see Shamrocks beat them previously in the league. Quite a turnaround there, fair play to them.

They hammered them in the league and are the nest scorers in the league. Bosco were the form team coming into the final looking at results.
