Many clubs back training?
Any word when league fixtures are out or championship draw is being made?

Give them a bell, and if you have your foundation course they'd be more than happy I'd say to let you take the team.
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Before getting onto the game, the setup for last nightís game was shameful.
As for the game itself, at least Lenny will have worked out by now who isnít going to cut it. Centre half back is a major problem-Antrim got back in the game twice only for St Maryís to cut through the middle for easy goals.
Having heard much about CJ and his fitness, he still has the ability to take scores from range that is lacking elsewhere in the side.

The set up?


Patrons only allowed on one side of pitch, no scoreboard, no facilities for hot drinks, no flag, no anthem...........

This was the only pitch available? where would you have preferred it? Athletic Grounds?

Did they have an admission fee on?

Don't think you can into a council ground.
They did surely, you had to go in to a room in the main building to pay

I'd say you are right! Poor organisation all the same when we need to be better prepared than most to compete

Look its the same with clubs, trying to get someone to commit to taking teams is difficult. Ive already been asked to help out at the club, as i'm asked most years, the same people always do, the county teams is harder again, lot of committment, i certainly seen that with the minor hurling team last year, they were on the go all the time and with a big selection of mentors helping out..

Not too many people will put their hands up to take teams, but are pretty good at giving off about it, not saying you are Belfast GAA man, from my limited experience its harder than you think with even less reward for the effort you put in, and I'm noit talking about money

I've been taking kids teams for years and will be this year - Minor really is a hard job as their interest starts to go elsewhere - no easy answers but you are right about needing 3 or 4 people taking a team to do it right and to make it enjoyable
