Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling

We played Fintona already and have to sat they where really poor - couple of lads testing the jerseys limits. Gotta give their players some respect that even if they aren't at the races they are turning up for the club when others aren't.

Whats happened in Drumquin - last few years they been bottom or nearly bottom. New recruits or youth coming through..... Moel Donnelly back doing press ups at half time?

A mixture of youth players coming through and a few lads who where in England back playing. Noel Donnelly was involved with the Senior team in 17, 18 & 19. Not much success but a lot of young lads got plenty of Senior football. Niall Glackin is managing this year and a huge effort has went in. They where robbed blind against Urney and should be sitting undefeated, granted with still some tough games ahead in the league. A lot of effort has gone into youth in the Club, its the same everywhere, and standards are improving. When you have small numbers its very difficult to remain competitive. Its been a long way down from Senior football in the late 90s and its a long way back up again but they are going in the right direction.

At times people underestimate how difficult it is to function as a Club with limited numbers, some of the comments on here have been demeaning towards Drumquin and other small Clubs but that says a lot more about those making them than the Clubs who are the butt of a poor joke. Its taken a long time but a second sand carpet pitch with match standard lights and a third pitch for youth games is under development plus a new community gym at the edge of the Clubs grounds.
