Gormley is not done now never mind 7 years ago!
We aren't world beaters but know where we are.

Roddy you are kidding yourself. He's done. Legend and all that he was, he's clinging on and has been for far too long. He keeps this up he will tarnish the legacy that he had.

Conor Gormley was the second best player on the field in last years Championship Semi Final behind Sparky Kavanagh!
And going by reports in the Trillick game he was their best performer and against Omagh he seems to be taking the plaudits also.. Doesn't sound like a man finished at club football to me?

Anyone know whats going with Omagh at the minute, reports of a lot of players missing, that 2 games now you'd have expected them to win and they've just about rescued a draw!!

Dromore seem to be brushing teams aside at the minute, Ruairi Sludden the main instigator of scores, surely merits a run out for Tyrone!
Ricey also played for Dromore reserves at the wkend, Ive no doubt he'll feature in a few senior games this season!!

A fair few injuries and some players taking a long holiday, I believe, probably reason for Omagh having a few early season surprise results. Given they are the Co Champions they will hardly care and will be aiming to peak at the right time.

As for Dromore, I'm sure their early season form has something to do with their participation in the Ulster league. That and having really good players.

Not strictly true, Dromore were close to winning their first silverware of the year in March but instead it went to Coleraine Eoghan Ruaidh, Stewartstown also came close but the trophy went to Cavan.

Any idea of when Club Championship is meant to be drawn? Was my understanding this was supposed to be done weeks ago and hasn't been for whatever reason?

County Board do not have a sponsor for the Club Championship yet because Donnelly Bros pulled out after what happened with Mc Aleer and Rushe! FACT! That's why the draw hasn't been made yet!

Donnelly Brothers three year contract for sponsorship expired at the end of last season so it may also be related to that surely?

The negative publicity after the Galbally incident may have deterred them from renewing or perhaps they just thought they weren't getting value for money? They're still the kit van sponsor so it's not as if they've pulled out completely.

The way the club championship is rushed through totally diminishes it. A box ticking exercise.  Is little wonder they pulled the plug

Agreed. There's so little exposure for the sponsor that it really wouldn't be worth the money.

What do they get - a few banners behind the goals and there name mentioned on some social media?

This is what has happened the past few years.

Championship draws should have a night separate with proper planning.
