Unlucky gooch

One eejit on a forum does not represent an entire club so I would be reluctant to chastise the club over one person...

agreed, my post was directed at the poster and not the club.

im like everyone else who was very happy to see them win at the weekend. would love to see them go all the way.

aye fair play to them, always good to have an ulster winner, great achievement!

for what its worth I don't think they woulda won the u21 anyway, as I said other week, it will be some team to stop creggans forwards. creggan dunloy final for me

Ah sure i can be wrong sometimes ;) thats some result for st brides, fair play to them. Dunloy for the win!!

Nobody belittling anyone's All Ireland wins.

But the intermediate is a B championship for those teams not strong enough to play A and likewise with Junior and even Junior B.

You don't have to have a second team to admit you are playing B.

Take Money glass for example. Not strong enough to play Senior so they played at the secondary/B level in the Intermediate. Who beat them?

Yes the team that won it and should have been playing in the A. I'm glad more people can see it for what it is.

In all my days itís never been known as, a b or c competitions, you play for your senior club team and you are a senior player, what grade they play in is the level they are at, junior intermediate or senior championship. If you want to see it as so then fine, Iíll not argue with you or HS on it, itís my view on those competitions just.

You can harp on about St Endas all year but you need to submit a motion through your club and insist that clubs play the level of the league they are in, no one will think thatís s bad idea, if a county has four leagues itís simple. Div4 Junior b winners play junior in junior proper and thatís your div 3 sorted. All division 2 teams play intermediate,  so the likes of Ballycastle last year should have played (and won) intermediate, and only division one teams play senior

we have 3 football leagues, surely its a straight forward scenario in terms of what cship teams should be playing in. fair play to st endas for their success but surely at the start of the year they had a fair idea they would be overwhelming favourties for intermediate. worked out well for them but they had an unfair advantage imo. after all they were playing a superior standard of teams all year in div 1 and managed a fantastic win against cargin on the way.

change it to make leagues and chsip reflect each other, after all that's the standard at which teams are competing at all year, why drop down a level for cship?

I'm surprised NE pulled out of the u21 B. After all they played in B (intermediate) Championship against "legitimate" B standard teams while playing Div 1. Pure arrogance.

 Nail on the head

What way do you folks think the Bellaghy v Dunloy Minor game will turn out this weekend?

Bellaghy will be the favs for the game and rightly so. they have been producing serious teams this past year and should really of had 2 in a row this year.

their U16's should of won derry this year to be fair so they do have a good strong line of good footballers coming through.

We will give them a good game of that ive no doubt. Love to see us upset the odds and get a win in this competition.

Watched dunloy v st galls, very impressive team

Casements progress to the U 21 quarter final U 21 after beating Aghagallon today in Creggan.

The answer ITG is Andrew Mc Clean and Kevin Niblock. Both are from the 1985 year group, and along with Paul Veronica won practically everything possible. A couple of minor medals, three under 21 chips, 9 seniors, two Ulsters, one All Ireland club senior, as well as four or five National seven a sides. 

If anyone can beat this please let us know.....but I doubt it!

Cheers bs. You have a closer knowledge of it than me so i will take your word for it!

Some medal haul. Niblock my favorite player to watch over past 15 years. Serious talent who coulda made most county teams

Very poor game up in creggan today for the neutral. A lot of wides and very sloppy play. Aghagallon were very poor, expected much better given the hype around them. Did notice that pg1 had hasson of rasharkin in nets, come on lads yous arent rossa!!

I remember a team made up of 2 SW clubs which won a few minors.. god strange how the memory fades

Haha i assume you mean sean stinsons. They were a team around for years, not just the best player plucked fron davitts to play for rossa for 4 games a year.

U21 Football needs a serious overhaul.

Group stage is a farce. Always admired the county board for not having round robin football cship like armagh donegal etc have. Championship not matter what code should be straight knockout

Do portglenone not have rasharkin players at the minute or maneyglass have ahoghill players?

Havent a clue. Suppose im justt speaking from the point of view from my own club. Were fortunate enough to have never been in a situation were our players have had to play for another club

The 'sanction' is a relatively new development and one which has never been utilised at Cargin or at any, or very few from South West
Surely an amalgamation of several clubs at under-21 level to include a couple from the first division ensures a big advantage.
Are we to anticipate a time in the future when Cargin, Creggan, and Moneyglass for example will ditch individual identities and pride within and get together for an attempt at short term gain..?

Think its more of a city thing. Cant see many players from SW willing to represent another club

How many kids play soccer? Iíve no time for soccer lads tbh, if you love your club and GAA itís a simple choice.

If a club mate chooses soccer over a club match in my team he wouldnít be playing for me. Kids work all week during Xmas, Iíll be doing a game on Tuesday night, shops are opened and some lads might be away at college..

Interested to hear your thoughts on players from other clubs who dont enter a team at u21 playing for a different club? Rossa seem to have a couple every year

Do all clubs have an under21 team?  Should  players not play at all or if there is a sanction you can play for a club for a season? We didnít field one year at under 21 hurling. We didnít have the ability to move to another club, I wish we did but I lost out, along with others. you can now and people do it..

Dont blame any player for doing so under those circumstances.
Personally would never do it myself. Surely would have a negative effect to some degree. How would the lsds sitting on the bench feel, playinh for a club all their life then all of a sudden their place gets taken by a lad who is gonna play 4/5 games. Dont agree with it myself.
