Thanks for all the help.  There is very little out there regarding results like this, even on club pages etc.  Though I have to say the most comprehensive list of results for any club that I have checked so far is Watty Grahams.  They have results from games going back to 2009 - including date, opposition, venue, scoreline, competition.  This includes underage and camogie fixtures as well.  Whereas most clubs haven't retained an individual website and just moved everything to social media (facebook, twitter, Instagram etc), they seem to have maintained an excellent website.

Back to the minor finals:

For 2010 to 2019, I have the two finalists, scorelines and venues.
For 2000 to 2009, I have all the winners, I have the finalists and scorelines for 2004-2007 inclusive.  I have the finalists for 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2009.  Ive the venue for the 2005 final. Im missing the rest of the scorelines and the finalists in 2002 and 2008 Ballinderry won both.
For 1990 to 1999, I have all the winners and most of the finalists.  Missing the defeated teams from
1990 Dungiven won
1991 Bellaghy won
1993 Loup won
1995 Loup won
1996 Ballinderry won - beat Dungiven, don't know score or venue
Dont have any of the scorelines or venues.
So far Ive only gone as far back as 1987 and I have the winners and finalists from 87 to 89.

Arrogant bunch alright

Aye, and the Tyrone lads tried to poison David Clifford.

Board has been very quiet since the leagues have started back.

Any teams really standing out as contenders for the championship?

Whats going on at dungiven and glenullin? Both looking likely of relegation.

Is next year back to meaning if you are in intermediate league you are in that chamionship also?

Pretty sure it's the 10 surviving Div 1A teams + 2 relegated teams + 2 promoted teams in senior championship 2020

From my knowledge the local catchment around Maghera (i.e 5-6 miles) don't have to sit the 11+ and are graded by P7 teachers and then an early exam in 1st year. It's those outside the area that have to pass to get in, with the caveat of an older brother/sister at the school being in your favour or you are a top footballer lol.

Each year group has 4 grammar stream classes and 4 non grammar. Few years back mind you. Maybe different now.

Still a similar set up, though apparently there have been suggestions of dropping the grammar stream by the new head teacher.
Children at feeder primary schools (Glen and Glenview in Maghera, Tirkane, Swatragh and Gulladuff I think) don't have to do a transfer test but can still be in the grammar stream depending on their primary school reports.

Do the clubs have a vote in regards to the changing of underage structure next year?the ccc are going to make the decision I believe.if they decide to change it probably would make sense to bring it in next year rather than delay for another season.

What about all the lads who were expecting to play minor club football in the coming year?
I get why the change is being made but most 18 year olds aren't ready for senior football and reserve football is a shambles. Changing to U17 at club level would be fine if there was a vibrant reserve or U20 structure already in place. In Derry this is not the case. Imo they need to sort what's happening with U20 first and run it for a season before any change is made to club minors.
Clubs will lose players who would otherwise still be playing. Some will go to soccer/rugby some will quit sport completely.
The decision to change to U17 was made to suit the elite player (those on schools, club senior and county minor squads) and not the majority - a common theme. Someone who just plays for their club minor team should be able to combine this with exams etc fairly easily.

Anybody going to have a go at predicting the derry team? I've listed the team from their last league game (v Fermanagh below), as well as the team for the championship game v Tyrone last year. From the team that started v Fermanagh i understand Thomas Mallon and Padraig Cassidy have both since dropped off the panel. From the 21 lads who featured v Tyrone last year, the following 10 won't be available on Sunday. Some turnover.

Mallon,
Johnstone,
McKinless,
Holly,
S Heavron,
McFaul,
McBride,
O'Kane,
Brown,
O'Boyle


Team v Fermanagh in 2017 League:

T Mallon; K McKaigue, B Rogers, C Nevin; N Forester, C McKaigue, D Heavron; C McAtamney, P Cassidy; E Lynn, E McGuckin, C McWilliams; D Tallon, N Loughlin, B Heron

Subs: J Kielt for Tallon (HT), M Lynch for McGuckin (50), R Bell for Heron (50), G O'Neill for Heavron (61)

Team v Tyrone in 2016 Championship

T Mallon, O Duffy, B Rogers, K McKaigue (0-01), K Johnston, C McKaigue, G McKinless, N Holly, D Heavron (0-02), S Heavron, J Kielt (0-05, 4f), C McFaul, N Toner, E McGuckin, M Lynch (0-01).

Subs: D McBride for Duffy, R Bell (0-02, 1f) for McGuckin, C O’Boyle for S Heavron, E Brown (0-01) for Lynch, C McAtamney for Holly, G O’Kane for Johnston

McFaul is back and is likely to start. Neither Oisin Duffy (left panel?) or Niall Toner (injured) from last year's team are available though (as well as those you have mentioned).

Welcome victory tonight, showed good character both in second half and in extra time, standing up to Armagh's physicality.  Could have paid for missing 1-2 at start of second half. McKinless made a great save, makings of a real leader. Subs and Slaughtneil men made a difference. Tallon hit a fantastic free from ground around 55 yards but score of the match was in the first half of extra time, lovely dummy and curled over with outside of right foot by .... ?! Someone on here will know! Derry capitalised on a bit of Armagh panick in last few minutes. 0.21 1.15 AET. Final on Monday v Donegal.

Danny Tallon scored that one too.

I'm out of the country this weekend and was wondering what would be the best way to watch the Club Semis on TG4.

 I know theres an official app but I dont think it offers live coverage internationally. Is TG4 available through KODI or any other platform?

TG4 website/app with a vpn is probably your only option, unless a bar is showing them. Not aware of TG4 being on Kodi.
I have used Tunnelbear vpn on an ipad in the past and it works fairly well, very easy to set up. It basically fools the TV app into thinking your location is in Ireland (or whatever country you choose). You obviously need a pretty quick connection and once you go over a certain amount of data there is a charge, though I think was only around 5 for a month of unlimited data.

anybody got the glen team??

C McCloy
D McCusker
C McDevitt
O Hegarty
T Mullan
C Mulholland
O Hughes
J Doherty
C McCabe
C Darragh
C Convery
T Flanagan
P Gunning
D Tallon
O McGill

Red card was a big blow for Ramor, though their style was pretty aggressive and they looked likely to lose a man from early on I thought. Conall Darragh was my man of the match, outstanding from start to finish.

Glen v Ramor was a cracker today, Glen just about doing enough. Crossmaglen impressive, the two O Neil lads look special.

No Danny Tallon on derry team v armagh?? Wats the story there??

Not sure. Maybe he is prioritising the Ulster Club U-21 Championship for the next few weeks, or he could be injured, or left the panel completely. I'm sure there'll be somebody on soon enough with the proper story.

Is he on one of the university squads?

I think he's on holiday

Yep, he's on holiday in Australia, due back in the next week or so.

Would Danny Tallon still be the danger man up front for Glen?

Yep, Danny is still U21 (next year too I think). Classy player.

South Derry final: Glen 1-17 Swatragh 1-8 AET

Musta been one way traffic in extra time.

It was, Swatragh didn't score in extra time but missed a 20 metre free straight in front of the posts to win the game in normal time - pretty much the last kick of the game. Glen missed bucketloads of chances - butchered 1-10 in the first half alone, some very easy chances, and were very lucky to get away with it. Glen's keeper also made a couple of vital saves. Swatragh are a good team at that age but Glen would need massive improvement if they are to compete in Ulster.
