Any talk of pulling the games forward a few weeks rather than wait to August
The games are already brought forward to start on the 19th July?

This isnt confirmed. Competitive games are permitted from 17th July, however Ulster GAA released a clarification stating that friendlies are still not permitted in the 6 counties until 17th July. Cant imagine clubs entering a league without playing a few friendlies.

I notice a new youth amalgamation among the youth fixtures - St Brigids. Can anyone shed light on this?

Any more word on the new fixtures plan, to reflect reserves back to normal? And particularly underage - Is it not due to start in 3 or 4 weeks?

A lot of good points in the last couple of posts. I think something has to be tried to sort it out as it can't continue the way it is. Only thing I would say is that it does work in other counties like Down who think Tyrone's method is mad.

Also to add to the early comments - Currently you also have the lad falling between two stools or the opposite - he performs well in the reserve game gets hooked at half time cause the seniors see him as an option off the bench but then sometimes the way the senior game goes he will not be used. So you have a lad itching for football getting 30mins in a B game. On the flip side of that there will be someone who will put in a good shift in a full reserve game and then due to an early injury maybe asked to come on 15 mins into a senior game and end up playing 1.75 games! If the two games where played on separate days this would sort this issue out.

I think play the first few on Saturdays due to light issues - once the longer evenings come in and Uni still on play them on Friday nights - Most senior panels train on a Friday night and tend to do light sessions as they will have a game on Sunday so will not require big numbers for a useful session. And then during summer there should be plenty of evenings for games to be moved around to suit. Games beat training all day long in developing Senior players!

Tuesday - Senior/Reserve training (Pick reserve squad)
Friday - Senior training
Friday/Saturday - Reserve game
Sunday - Senior game.

The standard in Tyrone is train Friday nights owing to college and work commitments. This may provide a problem if reserve games fixed Friday as management resources will be stretched, and senior management will not be able to view reserves playing well. I would guess Saturday is the best option, but it may mean an extra day out for some people.
Either way, it is good to see efforts to make change. It is very apparent the past few years it is not working. To be fair to CCC, their hands are tied by central fixture planners. It is worth a try at least. Plus games are regional so not much traveling is required, and reserves will be playing at a standard to suit themselves and not their seniors.

No match should throw in later than 4 pm on Sundays.

If reserve & senior, games should be 12.30pm and 2.00pm unless agreed otherwise. (Senior only still 2.00pm).
Game finished 3.30pm, leaving plenty of the day to spend with family/friends.
Current setup is an archaic process, where games arent finished to almost 5.30pm.

The brother Lorcan I believe.

He was an S&C coach for some team in the past I believe cant mind who - must be into the coaching/managing too.

He was S&C coach with Slaughtneil in 2019 and I think he has been with Cavan underage teams as well in the last.

He was also S & C for TyroneU21s in 2015 when they won the All Ireland !!!

You’re right so he was. Forgot about that and the Fermanagh job. Maybe he wasn’t at Cavan at all. Hard to keep up sometimes with who has been where.
Was in Cavan with McGleenan. However, I don't think it matters where he has been. Edendork will struggle this year big time with Morgan, Darren and Conn with Tyrone. Edendork have a good 15 (Including the 3 county lads) but after that they are very very poor. Barely anything on the bench in the championship last year against Carrickmore and it cost them the game.
Edendork the standout team in Intermediate this year. Will go in as favourites for both league and championship. With the exception of Eglish, they will still expect to win their starred games against anyone else in Division 2.

I would imagine Clogher, Owen Roes, Gortin, Moortown, Augher, Beragh, Aghyaran, Greencastle, Strabane, Stewartstown, Newtown (In order of 2019 league table) will have something to say about that. Tyrone Intermediate football is the most competitive around the province.

Team talk reporting that Mc shane heading down under,thank god i did not renew my season ticket,could be a short year,Tyrone really lacking a stand out forward now.

If this is true about McShane, who have we got to replace him? I cant think of anyone on the current squad that is similar ball winner and can take his own scores.
Anyone not on the current setup that would be worth a review?

All managers appointed at this stage?
Any clubs entering Ulster League this year?
Any further word of league restructuring? Or was this just hot air at the annual convention?

With majority of clubs now finished up, excluding Division 2 and playoffs, the managerial merry-go-round will be due to kick off soon. Any big sackings? Resignations? Appointments?

It has been voted down in the past (Most likely by non-playing dinosaurs like at National Level), but what about introducing 1B again - So essentially 3 Leagues x 12 teams and 1 x 13?
Or even break it down further again into 5 Leagues x 8 teams and 1 x 9? Play 7 starred and 7 non-starred.
Both options are feasible with the removal of playoffs so can be complete before championship begins. League & Championship Winners promoted, with bottom 2 relegated. Possibly play off 3rd top v 3rd bottom?
League Standings could be seeded for championship the following season to maintain appetite.
Reserve football is dying a slow death - Change is needed ASAP. We will have to break from tradition and split senior & reserve link. Expecting reserves to still be playing football in November is ridiculous.

I see on Twitter last night a club player giving off about 2 club games been changed to accommodate a Club Tyrone Fundraising event involving McShane and McNamee. Assuming by the tweet the clubs involved did not agree to this. Absolute disregard for the club player further highlighted.
