Gavin McGilly walked from Moy apparently. Any truth to the rumour? If so, who will step up?

Heard this also. RTE and non availability of certain players at the weekend apparently, they haven't fielded in a good few reserve games. Division 2 awaits.

Checked this out and apparently itís true. McGilly is now a free agent and the Moy are sitting bottom of Division 1 without a manager.  Think itís more than last weekend but you canít imagine in a starred fixture to lose Sean Cavanagh to RTE was a positive for him and the club. Looks like there only going one direction ⬇️

The problems arose before the season even started given the numbers and lack of commitment at training.
A long season instore

What's the whole insurance debate thing about really, if there was a recreational club just treat it like the Cookstown Street League or whatever, you don't worry about insurance with playing a bit of indoor with your mates. How does the competion that Galbally run every year work like.

Insurance would be an issue and there would be a number of ways to address it. You'll find in England that the RFU have oversight of the touch game, they have fantastic structure, not perfect I'm sure but plenty the GAA could take on board and vice versa with some GAA best practice. If no oversight by GAA then your registration and player injury scheme (which is pish anyway) isn't valid as not official "competitions". I would imagine the RFU use a portion of the entry fee to temporarily register the participants in some form and cover them on a low grade generic scheme, in effect you wouldn't need to be a member of the GAA or a club to play and you could enter as a group of friends without paying affiliation etc. An absolute minefield in terms of the Official Guide at present, in simple terms impossible given the constraints, but nothing that can't be overcome with one simple motion at congress to allow for this level of social participation under a specific set of guidelines/rules.

In South Antrim (mostly the belfast clubs) we have a south antrim league. its pretty much recreational football, played every thursday night. 15 a side if both teams have 15 if 1 team has 13 then 13 a side is played. works great, clubs grade 15 players who can't play. its always a good mix of older lads in their late 30s early 40s and some lads who need game time and also some lads who just dont wanna commit to senior or senior reserve. i think there are 12 teams in the league and there are very few fail to field. also have a championship for it. As its pretty much all belfast teams there is very little travelling which probably helps a lot too.

Errigal have the biggest pick of any club in Tyrone?

I'd say Omagh would run them close. Coalisland at stages can have up to 50 men out from what they tell me. Carrickmore used to be in this debate but men at that club could tell you better - think there was a football/hurling split some years ago caused a bit of bother. Don't think anyone else really gets close? Maybe Dromore?
Can't ever remember a fall out between the footballers and hurls in the past few years in fact it is probably stronger than ever now. Carmen had a thirds team for a couple of years but I think it was all older lads or very young. The older boys didn't want to train

When I lived in Belfast my housemate played for St.Brigids in this league. It looked like good craic and to be honest was a little tempting to someone driving up & down the road to train/play Division 3 Reserves at home.
Itís a good way to keep people involved in the club who canít commit to the Tuesday, Friday, Sunday commitments of most teams. (That said; Football is more enjoyable when youíre in good shape as already pointed out)
Keeping people involved after they stop playing competitively means more volunteers, more revenue and a stronger club community.

Insurance issues can be worked out Iím sure. Much the same as entering a 5-a-side competition with your mates

The main drawback of such a competition would be that it would be more attractive to some current Reserve players & could affect numbers in that league.

Anyway, less of this day dreaming...

Was there not talk the Club Championship Draw was put back to the first week in June, to give the new Sponsor LCC a standalone launch night for publicity etc rather than lump it in with Tyrone team announcement.
Think that makes sense to be fair.

Poor Clonoe!!! Many a parish has two or more clubs.

Not as if the Clonoe tentacles arent stuck in every junior club within five miles.

We had one Senior player transferred to us from Derrytesk from 1990 no one from any other Club,so i am unsure what you mean...

Hughes' from Killyman?

That'd be fair enough.

They said at a recent meeting in Garvaghy that the draw would take place after the Tyrone/Monaghan game!
