Coleraine will sneak it by 4 points. They will be too powerful for cloughmills. I doubt cloughmills will have anyone of sean Leo's calibre

I've been told he's a good player as are a good few on the Coleraine team. Always wondered why they never really took the game seriously within their own county as bar slaughtneil surely they'd be as good or capable of competing with the other derry sides. Maybe just a lack of numbers within a dual club?

We shouldn't be really. Maybe it's just down to how we view certain players for certain positions e.g. Small nippy players in corner forward and corner back. There's nearly a third of the team wee squirts to start with! Whereas in Kilkenny nearly the whole team  bar a couple( these two players are normally bad wee b@út@!ús) are huge! Perhaps a more football mentality of picking  big strong fast players, obviously who can hurl a bit over the smaller more skilful players. How many times have u looked at certain players on county teams and said to yourself he's not built like a county player.

That's the challenge for any Antrim teams whenever they venture into Ulster and beyond. To match that physicality (within the rules) whilst  not forgetting they are there to play hurling. Certainly Cmills are better set up for this challenge this year esp in the forward line. Some of their forwards would be of the 'chunkier' variety than they had previously!

Well done Dunloy and Cloughmills. Hopefully Cmills can push on this time after losing their two previous finals. From talking to a few of their players they're certainly taking nothing for granted and will give Coleraine the same respect they've given every team they've played this year.

Think they have players from Dunloy,Ballymena,Armoy and maybe lougheill aswell

Who are they Antrim? Im just struggling to think of them off the top of my head.

Damian Gillen & Liam Cassley from Ballymena. 2 decent players.

Owen Kinney from Armoy, another handy hurler.

Goal keeper ex Dunloy????

Goal keeper is from Cmills as is full back! The question you'd be better asking is how many ringers from Cmills are Dunloy and loughgiel fielding or have fielded in recent years!

In these pre season so called friendly matches there usually tends to be a bit of handbags at some stage. The ref doesn't want to send anybody off in these matches either so it's up to him to either say to the management to take that man off before I send him off or if said management had any sense they would have him off already. These are the games were u should be getting the discipline sorted for the upcoming season!

Clones 500. Mark lynch derrys version of Brian dooher? U must be having a laugh! Dooher had an unbelievable engine on him could've played all day and all night. Lynch whilst being a not bad footballer to compare him to dooher is just silly sure as someone said on here recently he hasn't the legs anymore although I don't think he ever had them to that extent.

Just how are the smaller clubs expected to progress with a seeded draw. There's not much incentive in staying senior if ur gettin hammered in the first round every year. The one year there was a draw that gave the smaller clubs all something to play for sure didn't the 'big clubs' shite themselves and the draw got changed to a seeded one.

I agree with the seeded draw to be fair.

I think it's a better ambition/incentive to progress yourself against a top team and even cause a shock - that it's is to hope for a soft miracle draw like 2014.

Also - Loughgiel didn't give St Galls the hammering anyone may have thought!

I know u can't expect that sort of draw every year but perhaps they should change the format to something like the derry football championship were every team is guaranteed two games. Sometimes all a team needs is that first win to give them the confidence to go further aka monkey off the back.
Also on the suiting the big clubs issue no promotion from division 2 this year was an absolute joke.

It's ok for some of u to say the league doesn't matter but that's only if ur at the top end of it! What about teams at the bottom of div1 /top of div 2?? Them playing a match without a couple of their best players could be the difference between promotion/relegation and the progression of their club! Clubs should have all their players for all games sure why would X y and z miss an important club game to sit on the bench for the county.

SHOCKING!!!!!
There seems to be a bit of shenanigans going on behind the scenes in relation to the appointment of our country manager. One particular individual is holding the whole process up as he doesn't agree with Ciaran Barr's nomination. It's all a bit sad really.

Quality of the proposed back room team that I would have more than an issue with, but that doesnt seem to matter much  ???
what issues do you have with the proposed back room team?

Exactly that, the lack of quality. I look around every good back room team coaches and selectors and what I see is not only gifted coaches but people who know what it takes ex players at that level. People who not only know what it is to talk about it but when they are standing with a player from any of the other clubs involved in the squad that the players will have that instant respect.

The players can stand there and maybe even think to themselves what the hell is this guy asking from me but in the back of their mind they know the coach/ selector has been through it and has that understanding of what/how the player is feeling at that point.

We all know that not all ex players make good managers/ coaches but that is where you need a blend of both.

That is my opinion.

Sambo and woody? Highly respected ex players when they came in. Even humpy at Bcastle this year as another example. The game now is light years ahead of what it was when these former greats were playing. With pj you know what ur going to get. A well organised professional set up were everyone knows their role. Wouldn't that be a step forward from our current set up? Also the next management team would need to take the under 21 set up more seriously than previous years.

I hear Tom McLean has left his post over in Derry. Interesting.
I doubt PJ mustn't be well liked or wanted. He's out of a job, the county need a manager,I would think if he was first choice and was wanted for the job he'd already be given it, surely an after thought at this stage.
As I'm sure you well know, certain people have personal  agendas which seem to cloud their judgement. Anyhow, no matter what happens, PJ will be around managing somewhere.  ;)
In the job he just left
I wouldn't have thought so.


What about the shams job sie?? Hard act for anybody to follow. Anybody expressing an interest? Sure come Xmas time everybody will be starting again.

9 up at half time in extra time??
The game was nip and tuck until Rasharkin pulled away, going 8 clear by half time of ET and the game looked to be over. They then went 9 up but we rallied scoring 2.3 on the bounce to get a draw and pushed for a winner. FT Ballela 3.20 Rasharkin 2.23.
In the first game of the double header our camogs beat Aghagallon in the Ulster Int so it was a memorable day down at the club.

Cheers! I thought it was a typo when I first seen it. Fair play some comeback!
