You can all moan and cry about St Endas winning the intermediate but it happened so get over it.

If they were beat would anyone have complained that they shouldnít have been in it?

They arenít the first div1 team to do it, in fact it happens most years and they certainly wont be the last.

Will gort na mona play senior championship next year? Iím gona guess no.

Until Antrim align league and championship like in Tyrone then this will keep happening.

I do think we handled the whole u21 situation poorly but circumstances and priorities kept changing after we won each game in Ulster.

Unlucky gooch

One eejit on a forum does not represent an entire club so I would be reluctant to chastise the club over one person...

agreed, my post was directed at the poster and not the club.

im like everyone else who was very happy to see them win at the weekend. would love to see them go all the way.

aye fair play to them, always good to have an ulster winner, great achievement!

for what its worth I don't think they woulda won the u21 anyway, as I said other week, it will be some team to stop creggans forwards. creggan dunloy final for me

Nonsense

All championship should be knockout, save the hassle. Have a seeded draw to avoid 2 of the big guns meeting eachother in the 1st round. Seed teams based on their senior league position. Simple.

How do you seed under 21? No league to gauge and form changes from one year to the next! Not simple enough

As i said senior league position. 9/10 your gonna get a winner of the u21 cship based on a strong senior team. Cant think of any recent winners that have came from teams in the lower half of div2/3.

The amount of non fixtures in this years comp has been an embarrassment. Seeded draw along with straight knockout is the way it should be imo. Still have the a and b comps

No seeding. Open draw. Pure luck. Best team should still win it. Those knocked out in round 1 can go play for a shield or else dont have a shield.

Agree. Dilutes the whole competition and at this time of your pitches, lights and weather arent great. Would avoid many of the problems we have already encountered in this competition so far.

Rossa beat ld today... both now on 2 points. So they have to play each other again on Tuesday night in a playoff to see who goes into the A competition. Laughable

You are a complete idiot... donít like the twitter posts then unfollow the page. You should try chanel your energy and efforts into positive actions rather that this negative hatred which currently seems to mostly be vented towards st endas.


Surely the whole point in A and B is to create a competition for the lower ranked teams. Otherwise why have a B?
I think this decsision on St Endas needs revisited as a matter of urgency.

I don't think there's any way around it. They are in a unique position of being in an Ulster Intermediate (cough) Championship final.

Kind of like Man Utd the time they pulled out of the FA cup because they were in the World club.

What do they want the rest of the teams to do? Hang about and train until they are good to play in the championship? As I said if they had any class, they'd pull out of the B but my bet will be that they'll play in it and swat the B teams to the side like flies and then post 5000 twitter posts about being champions lol

So st Endas have no class? Because the county decided to inforce this... catch a grip.


St Enda's are going to play in the B? How is that fair on the teams who are at their level in the B? If they had any class they would pull out themselves instead of bulldozing all the B teams out of their way to win a championship they were too strong for at the expense of the teams playing THEIR championship. But they have form in that regard

If you fail to field or break the rules like Dunloy surely that should amount to you getting booted out of the competition?? Do these competitions not have rules?

Aye itís every day anantrim team gets to ulster final. Whatís the view like on that high horse. Could have easily caught games up in December. Rest of the teams could plough on with their games.

The problem now will be, you have a team capable of winning A playing in B.


Well we at Naomh Eanna would have thought that we would be pretty competitive in the U-21 Championship until the head of the CCC told us last night that we were being ejected from the A competiton but we could play in the B. Told us we had to play a game by 1st December (same day as our Ulster Final) but wasnt prepared to give us an extra 2-3 days grace. So if Rossa beat LD at the weekend they will go through despite us finishing 2nd in the group and not having lost any matches on the pitch. Only in Antrim would this happen. We weren't looking any favours just a bit of common sense and flexibility by the CCC.
Would the head of CCC have taken this stance if he thought here was a chance of getting a vote from us at County Convention for Chairman. I dont think so.
I hear the LD boys are fairly raging about NE cancelling their U21 game with LD 3 times at short notice.... Did NE really want the whole competition put on hold for them until December?

Iím a Belfast Gael and couldnít agree more.

No club in Belfast has good enough parking facilities outside Corrigan.

If the drive is too much of a put off then donít go! Clearly doesnít mean enough to ya.

Wanting to bring my kid to see a senior championship game in Belfast without having to drive 80 mile round trip journeys is now called having an agenda.

Wind your neck in, angry boy.

80 mile round trip not worth it? Us down the country ran to Casement several times every season. It was a pleasure to do it. It's motorway from Belfast until about 10 miles out of Ballycastle, 2 out of Dunloy. If Ballycastle is too long for you to travel to a senior semi final/ Minor final double header then stay at home. There were plenty of senior championship games in Belfast this year. Rossa V St. Johns, Sarsfields V Cushendall, St. Johns V Ballycastle. But keep stamping your feet like a spoilt child there. Never worry about there being no suitable venues in Belfast to host the game, we'll hurl up and down the Andersonstown Road so you don't have to spend a 5er on red diesel.

Weekend predictions. Let's hear yours

St Galls v Cargin - St Galls by 2
Creggan v St Johns - Creggan by 2
Gort Na Mona v Ballymena - Gorts by 3

Wouldnít disagree with that.

I believe that the results at the weekend were fair and the refs in both games did not cost any team - i thought they were neutral, tried to let both games flow (rather that than start /stop) yep for sure they missed somethings (and probably could have been helped more by their linesmen) - overall a good performance by both men in the middle.

Haha. You must be related to them or very good friends!

Honestly but, when a ref has a poor game (in the same way a player does), they need to be held accountable. Here's an idea. In cship games, an assessment panel made up of neutral gaels from other clubs (not ex referees) should rate the referees performance on various factors and the overall assessment be posted on Antrim website. All anonymous of course. What about that for a crazy a*s idea. A bit like the player ratings you see in the papers.

Crazy idea is right. Could think of nothing worse.
