Can’t believe there are no concessions at matches and then the way they space out matches to avoid double headers. Poor show.

Which goal(s) in the senior out of interest Podge?

A sore one for St Johns today against an awesome side. While I would never have given the Johnnies a chance of winning the game today, their result against Ballycastle suggested that they could be on the receiving end of a battering. They’ll regroup and go again but I’m beginning to think they’re a team that peaked about 4 years ago.

I’ve heard a lot of talk about Cushendall this year but I’m not seeing it. Dunloy are levels above everything else for me.
But…..everyone has a bad day I suppose….

Christy's goal. Maybe it was just bad goalkeeping but in defence of the keepers, the bounce off the sod and the bounce off the artificial squares are totally different .

bad goal keeping is what it was

I would agree with you about Cushendall, thought they were very laboured at times. Obviously they will try and prevent Dunloy from playing but if Dunloy get going early I see them winning comfortably.

I think St. John’s blew it about four years ago when they should have won it. The year cushendall beat them late on in a replayed semi final was the year they should have won it.

Agreed on cushendall. Would be needing a significantly better performance than today to even have a chance.

Tbh with mcnaughton’s goal I thought the goalie was caught by surprise that mcnaughton hit it so badly. Mcnaughton made a massive impact for cushendall btw. I don’t think they win that without him.

Dunloy look razor sharp, precisely not what a sluggish Cushendall would want to be facing. Only looks like one outcome.

Loughgiel are rebuilding and deserve credit for blooding the youngsters this past 2 seasons. With some serious underage talent they'll be back challenging Dunloy in a few years. Dunloy going nowhere for the foreseeable. Multi-talented group of players they have.

Haven't seen Sambo near a Cushendall juvenile team in years. Suddenly there's a minor final and low and behold ....people see through that nonsense.

As far as I know he’s been coaching that team all year.

Very hard on poor Sambo folks.
