You may register your complaint about not getting a seat with the people who decided to close Casement. Just stating Dunsilly as a ground is adequate for any Antrim club game. With improvements still to be made on toilets changing rooms etc

A concrete terrace along that grass bank would have been an idea though....

I remember the good old days of Casement and it packed out on county final day……
At least we could get sitting down though.

If the new stadium ever gets finished (or started) don't panic there will be at least 30,000 spare seats on county final day.

Packed out on county final day?  That’s a bit of an exaggeration!

I was taking the piss! People think if Casement is built they’re going to have all this great parking and the place will be packed. I actually always found Casement a crap place to watch a match as the atmosphere was lost in the size of the place. Only ever really saw it packed on a handful of occasions in the Ulster championship. The playing surface was amazing though. My favourite place to watch and play a match is Glenavy. Dunsilly is very good too for all the complaining about it.

Dunsilly  with a concrete stand and toilet facilities would be good.  thought ballymena should have made a go at something or Cargin as part of their new set up

Glenravel win pulling up. The young lad Ryan McQuillan looks a class act to accompany Eamon Fyfe.

Yeah, brutal commentary. Don’t know half the players. Is Cargan down to 14 or because it is extra time is it not a new game and he can be replaced?

Both out of steam. Cargin more legs though. Tight.
