Well done to Cargin on winning the Eddie fitzsimmons cup tonight.

Does anyone know the lay of the land at the bottom of div 1?

Do aldergrove still have 2 points to be deducted ?

Despite playing an illegal player against Ahoghill in the 1st phase (before split) the CCC have now decided NOT to deduct the 2 points Aldergrove gained by winning that match!

To compound Ahoghill's difficulties CCC are insisting that that last match (against Aldergrove - to avoid relegation) is played at 3pm on Sunday 13th, after Clooney Gaels play Cushendall in the SHC on Saturday 12th at 6.30pm, with probably at least half a dozen dual players!!!
The CCC had and still have no other option other than to act as per rule in their actions against a team fielding with an 'illegal' player included.
Rule states induvidual suspension (not less than six months) imposed as well as points not being awarded.

But hey this is Antrim😮

JFC  : Eire Og robbed last night by two poor decisions.
A clear point signalled wide by umpire.
A definite penalty given as a free in the square!

Poor match.
Hard to read mals side of the draw....but most experienced team on this side .
Sarsfields at a canter
Opportunity for a run in Ulster  depending on draw.

Can I ask what are Sarsfields doing in the JFC? I am not from Antrim but I always thought Sarsfields would have been a strong Belfast team?

They played in Div 3 this year, though they did win it.

A couple of years back, I think. I vaguely remember they had a motion to restructure leagues (which would have saved them from relegation). I think that was 2015.

Yeah not sure what issue is. My preference would be championships aligned with leagues anyway.

The photo in the match report on the Saffron Gael site would suggest the referee got the call right in regards to the free...

But he gave the right decision, whether by luck judgement. Not a penalty by the photo.

How many yards away were you? If he seen a foul and not a 100% sure it was in the box should he give it?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Sarsfields completely in their right to play JFC, id say they've 1 eye on a good ulster run. seem to have gotten a good group of players together, would see them making an impact in div 2 next year. Surprised just how easy they brushed O'ds aside though.
