Guidelines would have to be whatever agreement exists between management and players. There should be no grey areas. The players would know what they're signing up to, full commitment to county until the season is over, and availability to play for club by permission from management on a case by case basis. The clubs get players back for second half of league and the full championship.

Without a doubt CK. Sad to think there are some amongst us who seriously want this to fail. A few boys will be quiet for another few weeks at least.

Several probable starting players not considered for selection I believe because they broke ground rules and played with clubs. Well handled with diplomacy and every player knows without doubt what they are signing up to. No exceptions...

Heard Conchur Johnston coming on changed things, him and Oisin Doherty will make plenty of runs and show for every ball. Also heard from a few sources that Cormac McGettigan and Cathal Hynds did well too, shows you about having the stickability to hang around until your opportunity comes. Andy will be having selection headaches of the right kind.

Brilliant result, well done lads, momentum gathering. Hands up...I didn't make it to Armagh. Had ticket bought, but felt it was only right to attend the funeral of our main club sponsor and absolute gentleman of the highest order, Paddy Fullan, a huge Cargin supporter, who tragically passed away at an early age on Thursday past. May his big beautiful gentle soul be at rest..

Had faith in Andy and our footballers to deliver as they continue to restore some much needed pride. Upwards and onwards we go....

Neither of the twins are on today's match panel G&T, botj are being rested. Joseph has groin strain and Patrick has calf injury. Hopefully they'll be back for the next match, both going well and fully part of Andys plans going forward.

Gutted, just heard Ryan Convery got bad news, ACL joint gone. Massive  loss to PG1.

Agree, Sunday will tell a tale of where we are, two teams well matched, winner straight through to QF's, loser a game 7 days later in QF prelims.

Ryan Convery also waiting on swelling going down before an X ray which he/we are fearful of. Ryan's our joint captain and played at 6 for UUJ seniors this year in the Sigerson. Would be a huge loss to PG1 if the news is as feared. Happened in last 2 mins against Cargin on Tuesday night.

Did the "county" do something wrong? Let's blame the county for a player getting injured at training. Sincere condolences to Benen if the injury is as bad as originally thought, please God he can get back up on the horse as soon as possible.

But trying to pin the blame on the "county" - that's just cheap sensationalist nonsense most people here can see past.

Aye, we were out on our legs last ten, hard weekend caught up on some. Cargin were coming at us strongly at the finish.

Fair enough result, both teams missing a few. Would have taken a point before the game so can't complain.

Long time since PG1 put it up to Cargin in Toome so really not sure if tonight will be any different. Huge stag weekend and unavailability of two players expecting to play on Sunday against Fermanagh (Dermot and Oisin) dosent help either, but that's what squads are for. I'll take being competitive as a good result, anything north of that would be a bonus.

Indeed. No mean achievement!

Some interesting results in yesterday's round 11 games. St Brigids beating LD at Hannaghstown, Randalstown fairly comfortable looking dispatch of St John's who had taken a big point from Toome a few days before, and a revitalised Creggan grabbing two good points at home to Aghagallon. Glenravel and Ballymena still the teams to beat in Div 2.

Jude Gallagher is an amateur from Newtownstewart Two Castles Club. Won commonwealth Gold (as I was told beforehand he would do) and could be worth following in the next few years.. still only 20 and a proper rising star. Target is next years Olympics in Paris.
