Speaking to a St Paul's man there at work and it seems they feel very sore at last night's result, they feel they did not stand a chance with the official last night, the game wasn't even 60/40 in decisions more like 80/20...……………………….

Glenravel coming strong and supplying lots of players to county development squads and under 17s and 20s. Their club juvenile teams flying too, yet another SW club on a very definite progress curve. Going to get stronger now year on year too.

The Ardoyne result is a real head scratcher. Fair play to them, let's them see that glimpse of potential that they can aim to deliver on more consistent basis. Division two is really competitive this year.

Even the refs have a pick on the chip eaters now 🙄

I went and looked the result first and then pissed myself laughing. Blaming the ref for them only scoring 3 points. Thats a hammering.

Very quiet reporting on the games yesterday evening here. I guess there were no scraps involving Casements ;)

Apparently it’s ‘personal’ and the wee Derry ref has it in for St Paul’s as a club! Seems a strange vendetta to choose but each to their own 🤷‍♂️

Of course every county will ship a few players who upon reflection arnt sitting as high in the managers pecking order as they would like. Antrim won't be only county in this position.

Your sentiments are noble EOC, but in real world there is a massive committment level involved and if you aren't seeing much (or in Eunans case any) game time, then I can understand why that player would want to transfer that committment level to their club.

To emphasise that point I ask you do you think Mick Tomas or James would be hanging around to play Tailltean Cup this year if they hadn't featured in the recent championship contest. We all know the answer is either definitely not, or extremely doubtful.





Won't be any Mick or Tomas from what I'm hearing and James possibly also,let's see how it plays out I guess watch this space 🤔

I love the … was speaking to a man who was blah blah blah. Look at the score line first. I’d say this problem harps back to the minor final.

I also was talking to a man who said St Pauls were absolute rubbish and were lucky to score 3 points. 🤷‍♂️

As some of you may know I wouldn't be a big fan of our refs, dome more than others :P but to suggest an official was at fault for a 16 point defeat, wtf???? Think the problem lies closer to home!! Also great to see a portglenone man pulling the strings for Glenravel, even though he will be due a bus pass soon.

James has 2 young kids and his wife is expecting again so that may play a part.

Undoubtedly the worst refereeing performance ever seen!

Speaking of referees, no coincidence that the man who caused mayhem in the first pg1 and ahoghill game hasn't refereed in senior championship since!

Don't get me started on that other clown if he is on the line!

Woeful, he was bullied! Paddy Cunningham refereed the match!

Can I end by saying I fully respect referees to the point where I feel they might be a little narcissistic, why would anyone want to do that!!

Yer man against Ahoghill in my opinion was so far out of his depth it was unreal as for Sunday past I genuinely believe it was barefaced bias towards a city side

I criticise Sean's refereeing ability, I think he is by some distance the best in Antrim. I was just saying he seemed to be getting it tight physically last night.

Sean Laverty looks seriously unfit!!!!
