A juvenile is always a sub in matches. Fair enough as there are better players and that's how life works. The child's team win a game by 20+ points and the child got to play for the last 60 seconds.

What would you do if this was your child?

Surely that's down to the management and their judgement? Best thing to do is never get involved over management selection... Winning by 20 points or winning by 1 some managers see value in getting 60 minutes regardless how the game is going out of their best team

You don't think it's a bit harsh on a young child?

Its harsh on any kid, and I'm not saying its right, but pulling him from the team wont develop him either, as skull says keep him working at it and who knows how he'll develop.. is he a full minor/under 16/under 14/ under 12 player? i.e has he another year at that age group?

My second time doing - great event - weather Gods were with us yesterday too

We got lucky alright. Glad to get finished before the rain started. The debate is on now whether to go to the next level or not

Huge step up all the same! toying with it for about a year now, takes a huge commitment training wise to get to that level... 2 close friends have competed in 6 different Ironman competitions around Europe. They were mainly cyclists and had to improve their running and swimming to be able to get over the line... Years ago you could have finished regardless of the time but now you have a time limit for each part, if you don't complete it they stop you before you take up the next stage

Now now MR2, don't be putting words in my mouth. It was never mentioned that LD aren't a team or that St Galls thought this game was "a given". It will be a tight game and I believe St Galls experience and togetherness will get them over the line.

I wouldn't imagine anyone from Naomh Gall thinking that Lamhs aren't a 'team', they played well on Saturday, albeit St Pauls were not great but Lamhs could have beat Naomh Gall a few times and I doubt management would be looking at this game and thinking its a given

In fairness you did say St Galls are in transition and a lot of lads making their first championship starts then said that they have experience? Lamhs would have a more settled team based on that assumption.... If Lamhs come out and play football and go at us then it will be nip and tuck, if they sit back and play defensively then we should win.....

Got the Dublin Ironman 70.3 finished today. Tough going but that should set me up nicely for the Dublin marathon

Friend did it said it was a great day and well run, fair play

Yes ITG, as they say...close but no cigar!

We threw the kitchen sink at it and were three up with five minutes left,  but Galls used all their hard won craft over the years to grind it out. We missed three great goal chances and the annoying thing for us is we know we were truly thereabouts. Good luck to St Galls though. A team I have grown to admire greatly over the years, flying the flag for Antrim when no one else  was.

Our average age profile is still young so maybe we won't be so far away ourselves in a year or two, but at the moment Cargin look a stretch ahead of the rest.

Unlucky , we had to dig deep into our reserves to get over the line today I hear, couldn't make it myself but by all accounts both teams played well.

A tough game like that will stand by us... hopefully we'll move on and improve

By all accounts Cargin may wel get 3 in a row but I was impressed with Lamhs, but they'd need to keep the work rate up and have all their players fit

Amsterdam marathon coming up, Training in full mode now! Two 13 plus miles this last few days, Thursday and Sunday... weather has been great lately so makes it easier and new trainers have worked a treat..

just notice that the first mile is crap!! After that it's all good not sure if it's the head or body that needs sorted

Hope so.It makes sense to give the bigger names a rest and also give young players a chance.

How did Lennon do today? They've been flying, cupping of ears today?

Every team left in it will feel they've a chance after last nights result in Ballycastle

Was impressed with Loughgiel and having 'watched' Naomh Padraig last night it should be a good game... surprised at Rossa to be honest, ref'd them this year and they seemed to have a great balance about them.

If the league was won in the first two weeks they'd be champions, what teams in the top end should be doing to lesser teams.. Swansea nearly relegated last year.. Tougher games ahead plus the champions league to come!

The sub bench has proven its worth two weeks running

Plenty possession but Swansea coulda scored a couple times..Pogba would need to wind his neck in or he'll get the line!
