To answer Real Talk's query as to the identity of new Banagher joint manager - known as Honda - according to Michael McMullan of Derry Now he is Declan Mullan from Banagher itself.The man who links up with the legendary Enda Muldoon specialises in Strength and Conditioning and coached Glenullin last year under their manager Liam Bradley.

Anthony Begley also in with Banagher. Strange having 2 men that specialise in Strength and Conditioning.

Looks like the legend Enda Muldoon has played his last game of football. Originally showed up to Ballinderry's start of season meeting a couple of Sunday's ago raring for another year of football at 40 years of age. But has apparently changed his mind and will not combine playing with managing unlike Paddy Bradley last year.

Going to miss Enda as he was an absolute joy to watch. Ballindery will miss him even more so as he was still a massive player for them. I wonder will deets (wasn't at the Ballinderry meeting) and a few other older fella's call it a day aswell as he was recently linked with a position in the Sligo backroom team, heard very good reports on his training style from Coalisland fellas.

Seeing that we have good Ballinderry men involved both with the Derry  Senior  County team and Derry U17 side for 2018 what are the chances of another Shamrocks man being involved with the County U20 side for next year?

Hopefully the current impasse in selecting a manager for that team will be resolved soon.As I said before most ordinary Derry supporters would have expected that Fergal P McCusker would have been reappointed for a third term.After all he did trojan work with the last two U21 teams,bringing them to this year's Ulster final.

In the words of Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh.  His mother's from Ballerin, his father's from Greece, neither a footballing stronghold.

MÓM would have more respect. Ballerin were Ulster Club Senior Football Champions and reached the All Ireland Final.

Same as Slaughtneil who were superb tonight against a class Kilcar team. Game of the year.

And then there was 1. A better year for Derry Gaa but a disappointing day nonetheless. Newbridge in particular would've been fancied for the ulster intermediate prize. And Trasna have had a good year. Junior football in Derry has improved greatly since the league's have been altered. Slaughtneil keep on going. It is some journey for that massive parish.

Really good game on Saturday evening, quality football with lots of scores and a belter of a goal from Shea. Hard to see the Nailers not winning Ulster, and good luck to them. However a few points, I though Kilcar left it behind them, never seen the Nailers get cut open so often in one game, the amount of goal chances that Kilcar missed would have gotten them over the line. Rodgers was destroyed by Mc Beraty who is a class footballer. Karl did a super job on ryan Mc Hugh who I think is over rated, it Donegals style that allows him to play, when man against man he is always subdued. Apart from marking him out of the game Karl contributed to the Nailers attacking game.  Feeney also marked Eoin Mc Hugh well, except on the kick outs where Feeneys lack of physically was exposed. Tadd, Mc Grath, the two Chrisys also played well, but Mc Mullan was the start of the game for me. Finally Chrissys goal should have been disallowed as he did not flick the ball to the net, he threw it.  Great entertainment.
cccc is a true supporter lol

Letting McBearty scoring 5pts no matter how good he is, would be a worry down the line

Rodgers v McBrearty was a fantastic battle on Saturday. In the first 15 minutes Rodgers went one to one and beat him to every ball. Three Kilcar players in a row tried to take Rodgers out as he tore up the sideline, McBrearty with a punch to the ribs, Hegarty with a fist to his face and Eoin McHugh with some sort of a karate kick attempt to the head. Second 15 McBrearty won, although Rodgers was taken out by McGinley as he tried to stop McBrearty scoring from play. Nothing should take away from an outstanding performance by our County and Ulster Champions, against the odds at halftime with O'Dohery gone.  Kilcar did not leave it behind, Slaughtneil went for in the second half and won it with top class football.

it is very simple. It is unusual for "all" the Derry club sides to reach the semifinals of Ulster in the same year,so that means it is a better year. I'm dissapointed both Newbridge and Doire Trasna lost because I want Derry teams of all descriptions winning.

How did our representatives all do last year?
slaughtneil won ulster and only for an unfortunate sending off would likely be reigning all Ireland champions. Castledawson put up a brave show against a very strong Pomeroy outfit, and Magilligan were beat in a quarter final??
Sorry I stand corrected. Much better year for Derry football on the back of our junior champs going one round further  ::)
