Do the clubs have a vote in regards to the changing of underage structure next year?the ccc are going to make the decision I believe.if they decide to change it probably would make sense to bring it in next year rather than delay for another season.

The views of the clubs were sought on this matter, not sure if it was a 'vote' per se. Happened about about a week ago.

What about all the lads who were expecting to play minor club football in the coming year?
I get why the change is being made but most 18 year olds aren't ready for senior football and reserve football is a shambles. Changing to U17 at club level would be fine if there was a vibrant reserve or U20 structure already in place. In Derry this is not the case. Imo they need to sort what's happening with U20 first and run it for a season before any change is made to club minors.
Clubs will lose players who would otherwise still be playing. Some will go to soccer/rugby some will quit sport completely.
The decision to change to U17 was made to suit the elite player (those on schools, club senior and county minor squads) and not the majority - a common theme. Someone who just plays for their club minor team should be able to combine this with exams etc fairly easily.

I agree with what you are saying but the issue has been made very complex by the changes at county level in that county training/matches etc will now affect how both U16 and U18 competitions will be run off whereas before it impacted only on the U18 age group. The rationale in aligning them [at U15 & U17] is to diminish the impact on club competitions. I predict the county board will go ahead and change this for 2018 competitions as it will be changed at Congress next year anyway.

Really crap especially for players who will miss their last year of minor at both club and county level. IMO the whole thing is a complete pot of piss engineered by that clown Duffy to mark his 'legacy'. More players will be quitting GAA at an earlier age than before under this scheme. I would say this will revert back to the status quo ante at the earliest opportunity.

Having just seen the McKenna Cup draw, does anyone know  if Damian McErlain and most of the other County managers are carrying on the proud and fair  tradition of previous  managers releasing their college-based players to play for the colleges,especially in the group stages of the competition?

No doubt Mickey Harte will continue with his unfair and not so proud tradition!

Yes this is true that this is a tradition in the McKenna Cup. But can Damien really let all his college players play for their universities. From all reports I have heard Damien is carrying a 26 man panel and that's including the Slaughtneil contingent. With his squad being extremely young by all reports, surely he wouldn't even have 15 men to field!!

Why only carry a 26 man panel this time of year; has he narrowed down the panel to the bare mininium without seeing how half perform on a county panel! Theres enough players in derry without the need for uni players and some seasoned lkayers who need a rest: if all the best players make themselves available and are actually selected!

To add to what the weasel has said we should have more than enough quality players in Derry to compete in the McKenna cup and Div 3 of the NFL until the Slaughtneill players are available. The panel from last year added to by the stay away players should leave us very competitive. Have all the players who opted out last year made themselves available again? Why has no panel been announced yet?

It has been said that there are only 26 players,including the Slaughtneil contingent, on the Derry Senior football panel.As one would expect that there would be at least 7 Slaughtneil men - ie A McMullan,the two McKaigues,Brendan Rogers,Padraig Cassidy,Christopher Bradley and Shane McGuigan - on the squad that would mean that there would only be 19 players available for the McKenna Cup.
I think that it is extremely doubtful that Damian McErlain would  prepare for the League with such a limited number of players.
Anyhow we are only,I hope,in the realm of unfounded speculation.Going by his record of publicly announcing his minor panels,well in advance, over the last three years one would expect that an announcement of his present plans,including names of panellists, both for the McKenna Cup and League would be imminent.
