An antrim county final....in glenavy (after they were shafted last year) and a 'potential' referee from SW?  SW men thinking 'our cup doth runneth over'.

I'm so pleased the SW won something this year... can't claim the Dunloy team unfortunately so winning the venue and referee will have to do

So am I. SW facilities all excellent and based off their own hard work and money. Its a real pity some clubs cant even maintain the paltry facilities that they do have, despite handouts. Condemned stands & changing rooms here, tarnished county grounds there, begging bowl always at the ready.  Some clubs always looking to take shortcuts with the quick and easy options......reminds me of the county board.

Fair play it's taken years for your lot to get sorted.. remember getting changed in the car for years cause the wooden huts were terrible! Tractors pulling the cars out off the field, the pitch was a field with cow and sheep crap all over it!

Maybe that's why the SW were so crap for years ;D

Ah the good auld days. Its funny how things have changed and now its the big smoke where you need to bring a pair of wellies for the match and a cloth to wipe the pigeon guano from the changing rooms.  Character building id say.   :P

is there no chance we could ever look at getting the games streamed live for the likes of a final? Armagh TV are years ahead of everyone and its brilliant to use to watch a game.

this is totally non SW, lenny etc related so it may cause confusion lol
hurl like f**k boi!

As far as I know its been discussed by the PRO but lack of funding was the sticking point also, decent vantage points at games was a problem.
