What's our best midfield pairing now.

At the minute we have:

R Donnelly
C McCann

You have the likes of M Donnelly and Hampsey who have played there in the past but they are better utilised elsewhere, as McKenna will be when he returns.

Richie Donnelly is the best footballer of that lot but I do worry about his pace in a big match in Croke Park. Kennedy had an ok year last time around, it was his first year at intercounty football so you have to show patience with him. Kilpatrick is very inexperienced as well. I don't think McClure or McCann are up to holding down a regular place either and I'd put McDonnell in the same bracket there. Grugan had left the panel I think but he really underwhelmed in the opportunities he was given.

In light of this I think Harte should probably be looking to bring Paudie McNulty back into the squad.
Very very light around the middle in terms of quality. Probably looking at Richie as first choice alongside Kennedy or Kilpatrick.
Any use in Coney around the middle?

JFC Quarter Finals...

Brackaville vs. Drumquin (Saturday @Pomeroy 1.00pm)
Brocagh vs. Cookstown (TBA)
Drumragh vs. Castlederg (Saturday @Newtownstewart 1.00pm)
Kildress vs. Urney (Sunday @Killyclogher 1.00pm)

Cookstown and Kildress to go through comfortably. Other two harder to call.

Drumquin seem to have improved significantly this year so I will back them.

Drumragh/Castlederg is 50:50. I will go with Drumragh on the back of their performance last week but I dont expect much to be in it.

Are the semis an open draw or have the pairings been decided?
Brave statement to completely rule out Urney when they have Johnny Lafferty and Jamie McAleer in their ranks. Will be a very close game and those two could be difference makers, Kildress may have a better team all round but they havent got game changers like them. Kildress were also very lucky against Eskra with that goal decision. Des Tracey still being the best player is also concerning for them.

Anyone know the league structure next year? Is it meant to change?

How many can be relegated etc?
18 teams in Division 1
16 teams in Division 2
15 Teams in Division 3.
Would be 4 teams being relegated from Div 1 and 2.
If they go with the previously planned restructure of 12 teams in 1A 1B and 2 in 2022 theres a possibility of 8 teams going down from Division 1 next season.

Decent article, would be wise to maybe play down the return of McKenna considering.
He mentions that there are only two players from the 2013 minor side in the current squad - McShane was in that side too though.

McShane didn't start that day however.

Sean Fox (Ceapach); Colm Byrne (An Eaglais), Rhys Quinn (Cluain Eo), Cillian McCann (Fionntamhnach); Shea Hamill (Domhnach Mor), Christopher Morris (Gallbhaile), Padraig McGirr (Aireagal Chiarain), Ronan Nugent (Gallbhaile), Frank Burns (Cabhan a’Chaotainn), David Mulgrew (Ard Bo), Conor McKenna (An Eaglais), Ruairi McGlone (Achadh Lu), Lee Brennan (Tri Leac) Daire Gallagher  (Tri Leac), Stephen McGrath (Doire Lochain).

Always thought Ronan Nugent is a decent player who has probably deserved an FBD call up in recent years.

Maybe not too many from that squad made it to senior level but some very good footballers all the same who have served their clubs well since then
Few of them would be worth a call up after the championship
Those players are all 24/25 now. Realistically too late to be looking at giving the seniors a push and trying to establish themselves.
Your future call ups will be coming mostly from the 2019 and 2020 U20 teams.

Senior Championship:
Trillick V Killyclogher
Coalisland V Derrylaughan
Ardboe V Dungannon
Errigal Ciaran V Dromore

Intermediate Championship:
Tattyreagh V Beragh
Rock V Edendork
Aghaloo V Greencastle
Eglish V Gortin
Senior Championship:
Trillick V Killyclogher - was very dissapointed with Trillick against Galbally, thought they were very poor. They are well capable of improving but think Killyclogher will fancy an upset and their big players are in good form.
Coalisland V Derrylaughan - Coalisland will have too much quality for Derrylaughan.
Ardboe V Dungannon - both teams got over their scares in the first round but neither were impressive. Think when comparing the two sides at the minute there is more quality all round in the dungannon team, they also have a strong bench to fall back on.
Errigal Ciaran V Dromore - getting a win in the championship for the first time since 2016 is a big weight lifted from Dromore. Errigal with their injury problems as well. Think Dromore now with their tails up will edge it, wouldnt be surprised if it needed extra time again but think Dromore will come through it.

Intermediate Championship:
Tattyreagh V Beragh - Tatts look in a good place with their injured men returning against Strabane. Beragh will be their usual hard to beat selves but with the quality in the Harkins, Eoighan Murray etc they should come through to find themselves in the semi final again.
Rock V Edendork - Rock will provide a challenge for Edendork, but when looking at the Edendork team its difficult to see who in the division can really beat them. Lot of firepower and strong around the middle, it will take someone getting them on a very off day to beat them.
Aghaloo V Greencastle - Aghaloo looked good against Aghyaran, their forward line of the two McGlones and Niall McElroy will provide any team with a challenge. With their tails up they will fancy beating Greencastle and going onto the semi final. Greencastle plenty of experience and will improve from Stewartstown but fancy Aghaloo to take this one.
Eglish V Gortin - Eglish go in as strong favourites based on their form but Gortin have history of upsetting Eglish and with their experience will run Eglish for all their worth. Think Gortin are good enough to cause an upset with their set up and with the form Ruairi Keenan was in against Owen Roes, he is capable of dominating games which would give Gortin every chance.

Coalisland looked very good. Plunkett Kane and Stephen McNally still driving the team forward, two outstanding club players over the last 10 15 years. Sets them up for a semi final rematch with Trillick, with the likely winner coming from that tie.
Out of the remaining games, I would be only confident in calling Trillick, Errigal and Dungannon as winners. Rest of the games could go either way.
Moy v Derrylaughan - think theyve more scoring options and experience in the Cavanaghs, Loughran and Conroy to get them over the line.
Galbally v Trillick - think Galbally will ask them plenty of questions but the experience and spread of scoring options will get trillick through.
Killyclogher v Carrickmore - a tight one, a fully fit carrickmore would fancy their chances but with killyclogher team going well and the county players in good form added to Carrickmores injuries I think Killyclogher will edge it.
Loughmacrory v Dungannon - Dungannon appear in a good position for a strong run at the championship this year. As long as they aren't already looking at a Quarter or Semi final they should get over Loughmacrory.
Ardboe v Donaghmore - Arboe have performed poorly in the championship in the last decade and havent started the league well. Donaghmore a good young team, shouldve beat Killyclogher last year will fancy claiming a scalp in Ardboe.
Errigal Ciaran v Pomeroy - Loss of McAnenly, Canavan and Peter Og McCartan are losses which will hurt their chances of winning the whole thing. But have plenty of good replacements in their squad to beat Pomeroy with a few points to spare.
Omagh v Dromore - surprised the bookies making Dromore favourites in what is really a 5050 game. Both teams not where they want to be. Think Omagh will win because theyve a better idea of what their best 15 is, whereas Dromore have done a lot of chopping and changing and haven't got a settled team. Emmet McNabb a big loss to Dromore who might struggle for scores without him.

The number of cases across the country North and South doesn't suggest that the season won't be finished. There was 1 case in a club in Tyrone, hardly null and void stuff. Similiar situation in armagh. To see the season not being finished you are going to need a massive increase in cases and at present that isn't what is happening across the country.
Eglish didn't handle the first weekend well but what it should mean is that other clubs will now see the risks of what Eglish did and follow the guidelines that are in place, so going forward clubs won't let the likes of changing rooms be used until they are given the go ahead to use them. Thankfully the supporters situation has now been cleared up with the executive allowing supporters into outdoor sporting events.

Have any players come out of retirement given it is a short season?
McCarron is back with Dromore.

Any talk of pulling the games forward a few weeks rather than wait to August
The games are already brought forward to start on the 19th July?

Cookstown will be happy, should get through to the semi finals without too much trouble and then a great chance of promotion.
Division 2 a mine field as usual but you would fancy Edendork to come through to the semi finals, other 3 teams really could be anyone.
If relegation was included division 1 would have seen some games, 1B would have been brilliant viewing, but not to be unfortunately.

At tonight's meeting of the County Management Committee it was decided that all Clubs should be consulted in respect of the adult football league fixtures, as previously notified.

1. It is agreed that any adult team may decide to not participate in this year's football league, in which each Division has been subdivided into two groups. In the event that a Club takes this decision prior to the draw for league's groups being made, the status of its adult team would remain as is at present i.e. the team would not be relegated. Please let me know whether your Club's adult team will be participating in this year's league, and do so on or before 4.00 pm on this Friday (28th June) 2020. 

2. The Management Committee also requires your Club's opinion on whether there should be, (a) both promotion and relegation for each of Divisions 1, 2 & 3, or, (b) if there should only be promotion from Divisions 2 & 3 and no relegation from Divisions 1 & 2. It would be greatly appreciated if you would provide your Club's choice on these two options (a) or (b). Please do so on or before 4.00pm on this Friday (28th June) 2020.

New guidelines just issued, games can be played from July 17th now so will be interesting to see how that changes things. Full contact training allowed from Monday 29th June
You would think the most sensible move would be to take one of the games from the first double weekend and bring it forward to the 25th or 26th July.
