Dalton

Dalton Entrance can be easily accessed from all sides of the ground.

If parking in town, go down towards the ground along the Ring Road or via Irish Street (and under the flyover), and go down past McAnerneys Supermarket car park, and go to the end of the Stand.

If parking as coming from the South (Newtownhamilton, Keady or Monaghan Roads), there is pedestrian access along the Monaghan Road, about 100 yards from the Keady / Monaghan Road junction, which takes you directly into the Dalton End.

If parking on the Killylea Road side of the ground, you can go in the main entrance to the Drumarg estate, and walk through the estate to get to the far (Dalton) end of the ground.

Thanks Lad

We got tickets for the Terrace but have only ever been in the stand in the Athletic Grounds, from what direction is the best way in?

What terrace are you in - Drumarg, Niall's Crescent (City End) or Dalton?

Big win for Glenravel in Div2. Cassidy has them motoring. Ardoyne winning 5 on the bounce also.

Ant that's with Eamonn Fyfe well marshalled, hardly got a look in.

TBH I think he is one guy the management could look at bringing on to the county panel

Apologies, wasn't aware of that

He was in county panel last year and the start of this year but was let go

So-called ref accused him of using foul and abusive language towards him. I was there. I didn't hear it.

And neither would you unless you were within 5/10 metres of it.

Don't let it get to you, move on and tell your young lad not to speak to the referee, any referee, just set the ball down and get back into position.

There's only one winner when players start the verbals with a referee and that's the man with the whistle.

Follow that advice on Sunday please  ;D

I'll not be playing so I'm OK to hurl dogs abuse at you.    ;)

Sure call in for a cup of Tae, boiling water from the pot as you'd be a visitor and then a trip to Mass for devotions (is that still a thing?)

Feck that, didnt offer me tea on Sunday past!!!!

I might be built like an elephant but I've the memory of one too!!

That was down in Ballycran, not my home patch, get yer own tea down there, plus you're probably a "latte drinking pan nationalist"...

Capuccino

This was my point exactly do not go into detail as to why they were sent off but at least reference that they were, instead KH reported how a PG1 man was black carded but did not reference a red for his own club, why the disparity?

I'm quite happy these incidents don't get mentioned, then you have a situation where a guy can get lambasted but the reporter may not have seen the incident as per the ref's view, and he will certainly not have any access to the referee's report. KH will not have a clue about what the referee has put the guy in for, it might be rough play and a 2nd yellow, but the report might say something completely different.
I refereed LD last week, issued 2 straight reds, KH was there. I'm glad they weren't mentioned because it was a juvenile match, I wouldn't want a kid to read something bad about himself, especially as the reporter, any reporter, might say something different from what actually occurred.

This surprises me Tyrdud "I'm quite happy these incidents don't get mentioned" considering your past experiences?

True, what I meant though was don't get into the particulars of an incident, and just mention "Player X was sent off". It's the "innocent until proven guilty" angle not the "guilty and wrong thing mentioned or wrong perspective put on it" I don't want. And ideally not mentioned at all in juvenile games. We don't know what's going on behind scenes on in kids heads these days.
And for the record, mine was an exceptional circumstance

Only 1 man can answer this, and given that the guy gives his time FOC, I don't think this is something to get hung up on.

gaelfast is making a diffference in primary schools but what happens when they go to secondary - just leave it to the teachers like now?

Gaelfast bosses  in our school a couple weeks back with plans to start an Antrim secondary schools league and championship which we signed up to, to run alongside Ulster schools but only for Antrim schools, starting in September, hurling and football.

Now that is a good idea

MR2, TNN are complete saints sure.

Never said they were.....but by not punishing a player for two punches thrown early on in the game, then the ref allows the game to get out of hand because all players on the pitch see that if one player can get away with it why cant they.

Maybe i am wrong but is striking not a straight red card?

To do it twice right in front of the ref surely merits a red and then the players know to cut out the nonsense.

Did he book him for striking the first time? or did he see it the way you seen it? I wasn't there so can't actually comment on that

Fair point, you can strike as many times as you want if the referee doesn't see it

You can't un-see a punch in the bake, if lads are wrestling on the ground its get up and yellow card them and move on, if they are standing toe to toe boxing style then off they go, what makes a player run in and 'try and separate' two players? let them at it, they'll get dealt with, the buck eejits running in cause more hassle and it escalates later also

Here Here!!!!! Let them at it!!!

As much as it saddens me to say it we have a real discipline issue in the county with players mouthing off to officials, my own club man has gotten away with it for years but on Saturday he got the lesson intercounty refs will not stand for it and picked up a silly yellow for it and then a justified second yellow

I am in no way justifying the poor performance of the ref on Saturday, however it appears the basics are missing

Its not uncommon for older players to lose their discipline, Mick has high standards that he sets himself and when he feels its going against him he'll let you know, I don't mind constructive 'chat' but when it gets personal or over the top you are walking a a fine line. Its very difficult to take a player like him off to be fair, you place a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders to and he'll have taken them on board also.

The second tackle was borderline yellow, but maybe just maybe because of the earlier yellow it gave the ref an opportunity to flash a second yellow, they are only human, keep the ref on board and you'll get the benefit of the 50/50 calls, start abusing them and the 50/50 calls could go more against you.

I don't know if the ref was that poor to be fair, he gave my clubman a yellow for the off the ball stuff, after Hurson and his umpires were chatting, I think it was the right call as he defo started it. Some softer fouls maybe and moving the ball in is for mouthing. He'd one mistake were he allowed a 'MARK' to be played on when it was called, the player hand passed the ball.. other than that I can't really see too many stand out wrongs, that's with my Antrim supporter head on.

When I got nearer the end of playing you are getting into more scrapes and mouthing, that's your body telling you to stop playing lol

You haven't changed much!!
