Pretty incompetent if thatís the case.

How strong have Cargin been at minor level in this last 10 years?
All clubs get year groups were they aren't very strong.
I remember our club playing in the minor B. It was the level most suited to that particular year group. We won the minor A a year or two later. It's a silly argument.
Never mentioned strength in depth or indeed "winning" minor championship HS....but seems a problem exists when a juvenile team fails to field and such impacts on their opponents on the given date.
Been more than a few failures this term in minor competition.

Cannot remember a Cargin juvenile team not fulfilling their fixture in the well structured and organised South West leagues and think few in this region will be impressed at how the All County minor leagues have progressed.

Are there finalists from Belfast in the Under 16 and minor this years?
Most likely u-16 Belfast based finalists as this competition proceeds in a divisional board structure.
Jeez finger on the pulse MR2.. :)

Was the All county league final at under 16 I was referring to, that Ballymena team is decent enough, by your sums they should be lording it come senior ..

If you don't pay the fee, you're not in the race... maybe  8)

PS not knowing the 'facts', isn't 'incompetent' not pretty strong, even for an anonymous poster, but hey, what the hell, you can change your warrior name.
The volunteers can't.

PSS thought for everyone; did you assist with any draws, is your shoulder on these wheels ?

Thanks for clearing up the reason for the redraw.

Now I'm away this weekend, otherwise I'd be officiating at the match :o :o,  small matter of the Amsterdam marathon to navigate on Sunday, so good luck to both senior finalist (felt a bitta sick saying that) think it may go to a draw again, good interviews on the Saffron Gael by managers and players..

And same to both minor finalists, Rossa probably feel they let themselves down with the hurling expectations this year so may be a lot more determined to make up for that, great to see such big strides being made by Jimstynes club, bodes well for the future of Antrim that we have four different teams for a change competing for silverware
