Our minors qualified for a championship final after a battle against strabane up in Strabane (was never going to be anything else up there) credit where credit is due strabane had the homework done after a bit of a timbering in the league campaign. Our boys showed mighty spirit at the start of the second half to get pull themselves back into the game.  Omagh now in the championship final sunday fortnight who are the only team to hold that team to a draw all year with the league final against ardboe next wednesday.

On another note if you get a chance go on Teamtalk Twitter or facebook and check out the goal scored by Barney gormleys young girl last night in the minor girls final. Class act

Delighted to see Strabane beat :D

Great match last night with a huge crowd in attendance, brilliant advert for underage football. Strabane missed goal chance in the first half maybe came back to bite them. Carmen were outstanding in the first 10/15 minutes of the second half, that purple patch effectively won them the match. Showed great maturity as well seeing out the match. That Strabane team will be back next year, think 11 of the starting 15 are still minor next year.

Classy Glenman!  :-\

For those interested in Covid 19 from a NI perspective, Aaron Donaghey on Facebook is giving a good insight into it.

Lads wondering if I could get your thoughts. Me and my mate set up a consultancy and training firm last year. We got our first contract and employ a speech and language therapist and occupational therapist 3 days per week each alongside the work we do. We do not employ them through PAYE, they're technically self employed themselves. The service we work in is at high risk of being temporarily shut down due to the vulnerability of the clients to Covid19 meaning our contract will likely be suspended too for the duration.

Am I right in thinking that none of us will be entitled to the 80% scheme announced by the government? I think my reading is that we may only be entitled to the universal credit equivalent. Another headache is that we aren't even a year through our contract so we have not have any tax returns as our business started after April 2019.

Unfortunately it would seem so. £94 a week! There is pressure building though so hopefully they address it. There are 5 million self employed in UK, surely they have to come up with something for them.

Off me head, venues that can hold floodlight fixtures...

* Stewartstown
* Greencastle
* Eoghan Ruadh, Dungannon
* Fintona (Training)
* Dromore (Training)
* Carrickmore (Training)

To add, has the work at Garvaghy on its floodlight pitch been completed, and is Strabane's training pitch suitably floodlight?

Garvaghey floodlite pitch looked pretty much ready a few weeks ago. Strabanes pitch and floodlights are top class but there is no fence around the pitch which Iíd assume you would need.

Greencastles floodlights are IMO not good enough to host a match (unless they have been upgraddd in the last year?) although night matches have been played there recently

News to please all Tyrone folk. Allstar full forward Cathal Mc Shane is staying with the Ref Hands @TyroneGAALive

Breaking news from teamtalkmag

Maybe itís just me but itís a major bugbear of mine that Teamtalk break so much important and sometimes official Tyrone GAA news. Surely itís up to Tyrone GAA to report this?  Does this happen in any other county?

Surely when people sign up to WhatsApp they have to agree to allowing their phone number and profile photo to be used? Itís going to be very difficult to stop people using it as its a simple, free, effective tool. It will be interesting to see what the GAA communications app is like, if itís not simple, easy to use and offers a Ďgroup chatí function it simply wonít work. If itís an extension of the servasport text service whereby you have to buy credits to send texts they may just knock it on the head now.

The outcome of discussions on reserve competitions from last nights meeting is very disappointing. For years now reserve football has been on its knees. My club discussed this at length and whilst we could see some flaws in decoupling the games we felt it had to be worth a shot in order to try to breathe some new life into the reserve competitions. I am astounded this was defeated by a vote and would love to see a club breakdown. I can see no sense in not trying this approach for at least 1 year. Yes it would take some fine tuning and imagination from clubs with regards to training/picking squads on a weekly basis, but surely it was better than the status quo.

There was no vote but from the discussions last night the following Clubs were very vocally against it - Carrickmore, Tattyreagh, Loughmacrory, Clann na nGael, Glenelly, Trillick, Stewartstown, Castlederg etc.

I was hoping the changes would go through but as you can see both small and large Clubs were against it. 70% of the responses received by the CCC from Clubs were against change to the Reserve competition.

Outrageous decision last night regarding reserve football. As stated already, clubs had to look at this as a positive for Tyrone football not their club, unfortunately too many clubs can't/aren't prepared to do this. From a quick search of last years conceded reserves matches a few of the clubs listed above featured heavily, the others, although may not have conceded, were still affected by opposition conceding. The mind boggles as to how these teams think next season will play out. Dinosaurs!! What harm could it have done to try this for a year??

If proposals go through tonight no one will be relegated. The change to 4 divisions means no team will be relegated this year.

Incorrect, 2 would be relegated from Div 2 and 6 would be promoted from div 3 or they may opt to go with 1 relegated and 5 promoted but there will def be relegation.

Sorry but itís you thatís  incorrect. Was stated numerous times at the meeting that there would be no relegation this year. Division 2 will be made up of bottom 8 teams in Division 2, JFC championship winners and top 3 in Junior. Division 3 will be made up of bottom 12 in Division 3 this year.
There may be a counter proposal tonight regarding this from a club but that is the proposal from CCC
The teams currently in Division 1 who end up in the new Division 1B will definitely view that as a relegation

Possibly so, although it will only be the bottom 4 in the league that will go to Division 1B.. 15 of next years Division 1 will still play senior championship in 2021.

From reading the presentation am I right in saying that the 2021 senior championship will basically be made up of 15 division 1 clubs from this year plus the intermediate championship winners? So only the bottom team in division 1 (unless they win the championship) will miss out on the 2021 senior championship?

Seems a bit unfair that the division 2 league winners don't get into senior championship for 2021.

Thats correct Redhand Santa. Again, clubs are free to make proposals so that may change tonight.

In my clubs situation the problem was a complete lack of knowing when reserve matches would be played. Think there was a 10 week gap last year for our reserves. You might get seniors to keep training for 10 weeks without a match but no chance with reserves. This system should eradicate this problem and Iíd be confident that we will have far bigger numbers at reserve level this year. That alone will be a success

See proposals sent out to Clubs there now. Got sent the links below where you can download them -

Presentation: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=34441567675394347594

Fixture Schedule: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97070611131769141530

I'm confused, on that fixture template all the reserve games are down for Saturdays (the odd Friday too) with senior fixtures scheduled for Sundays. Where did the Monday nights come from?

They have obviously changed it on the excel sheet since the meeting. I would guess itíll be on Friday nights.

Also worth mentioning that another positive part of the youth proposal was that there would be unlimited subs in all underage league matches. Participation levels have to be raised across the board and this can only help.
