Any truth in the rumours that our senior football captain is taking the reigns at Desertmartin this year?

As the McKenna Cup opens in ten days time our thoughts will automatically turn to Rory Gallagher's first Derry team selection.Presumably the Slaughtneil hurlers on the Derry football panel will not be selected,likewise the Coleraine Junior hurlers who are also on the football panel.That means our defence alone will be short of four top class players who would be challenging strongly for first choice positions. I refer to the McKaigue brothers,Brendan Rogers and Liam McGoldrick.That should give Rory the option of trying out some of the younger players.By the same criteria come-back midfielder Niall Holly  and ace forward Shane McGuigan would also be unavailable.As a consequence I would expect the starting 15 to be along the following lines.
   T Mallon
   N Keenan
   C McCluskey
   R Dougan
   S Downey
   P McGrogan
   P Hagan
   C McAtamney
   Gavin O'Neill
   E Bradley
   C McFaul
   P Cassidy
   B McCarron
   N Loughlin
   C Bradley.
Subs: O Lynch
         E Concannon
         Sean F Quinn
         C Kearns
         C Doherty
         P Kearney
         O McWilliams
         B Heron
        P Coney
         R Bell
         J Doherty


Both not even on the panel. Kearns was never asked afaik

Looking back I think Dermot Dougan's display against Galway in the AI semifinal was his best performance ever in a Derry shirt Ö. but because we got beaten it just wasn't recognised
I would agree,( think Dougie got 4 points from play that day), the Ulster final against Armagh when he got two goals off McGeeney gets talked about more but he was exceptional in that Galway semi-final.

AI Semi Final 2001....still haven't got over that one. Such a sickner leaving croker that day

It seems it is up for debate despite evidence to the contrary lol. They have some good county players so you never know. Very open this year. Cross not as strong as they used to be so no standout contenders.

Watched cross a few times this year. Their scoring ability is excellent. Their defence not so much. Donít know anything about other teams

The two oneills look very dangerous. Clontibret have McManus who will take some watching. I would expect magherafelt still haven't sobered up I think gweedore may not win replay in Donegal though if they do maybe hard to beat too. Hard to pick a favourite.

Speaking to a few Rossa men in work, they certainly are going to give this Ulster a go..have been back hell for leather last week. I think they'll put it up to Kilcoo,

Another success for Magherafelt tonight. Some good football on display from both sides despite the conditions. I'd say a few of these lads be on County duty next year for the Doire U.17's.
There was a couple on the Derry U17 team this year that would have played last night. I know it's underage and anything can happen but Derry should have a strong U17 side next year. They won their respective U15 and U16 Ulster competitions.
At the Minute,Derry underage is probably at its strongest in a long long time. Its very competitive also,which will surely make us 1 of the main contenders for Ulster this year. A great chance for Boyle,who I'm hearing has never been a manager of a team so far in his career as he has only been in backroom teams.

Did Mickey not manage St Pauls Kilrea to U-16 All-Ireland Vocational Schools title?

Swatragh should win the u21 easy enough.

Easy enough? Who else are contenders...

Lavey, Ballinascreen. Kilrea/Dungiven had a good rivalry at this age group.

I would have said bellaghy too, earlier in the year, due to their recent ulster minor win but Screen managed a 1 point win over them.

I read somewhere that Magherafelt only lose 2 players from last years winning u21 team. But I think they have something like 8 u21's involved with senior team so doubt they will even field?

By the way, on sunday's game..hard luck to the Watty's. Sore one to take but they will be back I have no doubt. Fair play to the Rossa's, proved the doubters wrong.  :-X

Noticed one Portglenone player hitting his frees off the deck, is this allowed? You could hear a few Lamh Dearg boys protesting. I always thought it was out of the hands.

Stupid way to end the game anyway in all fairness

Any idea when dates/venues will be out for the next round of the championships?

Will they be waiting until the replays tonight are over?

I would imagine Slaughtneil v Ballinderry will be last game on the Sunday. Some great match ups
