Ah lots of teams are doing the exact same. I would be surprised if any team has done more than Derry at this stage, Gallagher has them in the trenches again, mad
Elite athletes train that way, intercounty footballers are elite athletes.
Club football is moving in that direction as well, with players now being as physically fit as county players were 20 years ago. Everyone tries to stay one step ahead and get an advantage. The majority of teams, with the exception of Kilcoo, are well into a SandC winter programme in preparation for the upcoming season. You are miles behind if your club is not doing anything at all. Dundrum is currently putting in a strong preseason effort, but I'd be surprised if they made it out of division 4 next season. And that's not a criticism of the players; it's just a reflection of the four relegated teams' ambition to return. Due to the strong u17s they had this season, Bosco and Attical will be favourites..
If a junior club is training that way then what is a division 1 club doing?

To be honest, much of it is because the coaches don't know shite about coaching skills so instead of upskilling the players just waste their enthusiasm running around beaches.

Looks like their fees are justified to the clubs based on all this training. Yet invariably the teams will stand or fall.... And by that I mean fall... based on their (in)ability to handle or pass a ball.

Surely the skills should be learnt long before senior level.

Kilcoo are no saints but some things I noticed just to level up
Warnock persistent holding and dragging of devlin but devlin gets black card.

Glenn lad was allowed to run across the eyeline of the kilcoo caretaker twice but nothing done by ref.

Glenn manager threw a second ball onto the field of play in the second half when kilcoo were on attack.

Jerome j taken out in mid air on 15 mins by Bradley also.

The St Marks defeat at u16 was C level and it was a 20 point defeat. Sad to see St Louis closer to D level than ever.

I cry myself to sleep.

There is nothing to stop the ulster council banning teams from the junior competition unless they div 3/4 in respective counties. Junior in down is div 4. Then to play a div 1 club from cavan potentially. Ridiculous.

Or a more likely explanation is they treat down as a warm up to the real thing .

They were a penalty kick away from being knocked out. Risky strategy.

Kilcoo strolling to the final,Enniskillen very poor and a poor reflection of Fermanagh club football.

The standard in down is obviously a lot higher than our county team reflects.

I mind getting into a row with someone on fb a while back because they were complaining there was no gp out of hours centre in Banbridge. There is one in Craigavon and newry. Both 15 mins from Banbridge. The population is spoilt rotten. Every report commissioned in the past 20 years  has warned of this outcome but there is no political party willing to take the tough decisions. Everyone is in their own silo. Now we are all fkued.

Sounds like it sucks to be Annaclone

Lovely spot. Especially the road on up to Rathfriland.

Are we not a 32 county association?

Lads, advice please.  Done 3 teams to win three county championships as a treble before a ball was kicked in any of the championships. All three teams won, but I didnt put the initial odds on the docket. Went today for a payout and the bookie is only giving me the odds the teams were before they played there county finals? Surely id be entitled to the odds before the championship started?

He's ripping you off. Should be paid as the SP before it started. Sure he has a digital record of it. Hood
