Minor finals
2000 Slaughtneil beat Bellaghy
2001 Ballinderry beat Glen
I think there was a Slaughtnel and Glen final in either 1998 or 1999

Derry’s championship is based on the senior league. Teams finishing 1 and 2 get a bye into semi finals. Teams 3 4 5 and 6 play in 1/4 finals. Winners progress to semi finals with 1 and 2. Losers play intermediate final. Lavey and Ballinascreen who lost the senior semi finals this year couldn’t have opted to play in the intermediate. Coleraine finished 7th in senior league and were in junior final with Na Magha who compete in Antrim division 4 I think.

I get annoyance at Banagher being in the intermediate this year as they finished 3rd in the league. But they got caught fair and square in the championship but it’s not like Derry teams are running away with it every year. Before this system Coleraine and Na Magha alternated between being the Derry representative in the intermediate and junior Ulster competitions. Intermediate and junior competitions didn’t exist in Derry before this system.

Coleraine is a funny one because the strength of their hurling team depends greatly on how they are getting on in the football championship. They were out in the 1st round of that this year so all their dual players were able to play hurling. Last year they conceded a junior final as they were still
In the football championship, albeit they weren’t helped by going to a replay in the football 1/4 final.

Third year of this format in Derry. Lavey got beat in an Ulster intermediate final in the 1st year of it, by Keady I think.

I think Tyrone tried to go the under 14/16/18 and a half a while back and it was turned down by Croke Park. The rule book defines the year from the 1st January and they weren’t allowed to go against it. Rule 6.17 if anyone is that interested.

If there are 2 teams finish on the same points it is head to head that determines the top placed team. If there are 3 or more teams in the same points it is score difference, providing there have been no conceded games that would give a team a disadvantage. If that were to happen, it would be play offs. I don’t think there is any danger if that though.

There will be less pressure to get games played next year as well. 4 less league games and 2 less cup games will allow for a weeks break between the competitions and hopefully eliminate the need for mid week games. The 3 games in the space of 7 days before the break was tough going.

Just a mistake on the website I assume. Kevin Lynch’s won 2-10 to 11 points according to the Kevin Lynch’s twitter account.

Yes. All county minors who in their last year of minor are eligible to play club championship. Those minors who were in the 24 man match day panel for the county minors aren't allowed to play senior league football for their club until they are finished with the county.

A win for Maghera yesterday as well. Anyone at it? Would have been one of Maghera's more unfancied teams to come through lately.

Danske Bank Rannafast Cup final

St Patrick’s Maghera 3-19 St Patrick’s Academy 4-10 There was no sign of a blanket defence in the opening game in the Athletic Gounds in Armagh with St Patrick’s Maghera collecting the Danske Bank Rannafast Cup final after a high-scoring match.

And they had to come from six points down after 13 minutes, when high balls were bombed down on their full-back line and St Patrick’s Academy went into a 3-1 to 0-4.

However Maghera responded with two quick points from full-forward Alex Doherty as the Glen forward moved through the gears in producing a Player of the Match performance with 1-11, just four points of which came from frees.

Doherty had amassed eight of those points by half-time when amazingly Maghera had re-gained the lead they held for a short time around the sixth minute. Turning over now at 1-12 to 3-3 ahead, they had the composure and pace to see the second half out, despite a fourth Academy goal in the 38th minute from Shea Daly.

In truth Maghera had a stranglehold over the midfield and half-back area with captain Conleth McShane and Eunan Mulholland commanding presences bursting forward to punch holes in the Academy defence that was stretched to create space for the excellent Doherty.

There were positives for Dungannon as well. 4-10 would win most games at this level and Michael Conroy and Lorcan Quinn looked dangerous if there had been more ball driven into their area. However they had to work short ball out of defence to bypass midfield and that played into Maghera’s hands.

The Derry side led by 0-2 to 0-1 when the fireworks started with Conroy placing a high cross into the path of Quinn on the edge of the area and he palmed home.

Although McShane and Doherty responded with points, Oisin McHugh ran up the left wing to fire a second goal and a minute later in 13th minute Shea Daly’s strike made it 3-1 to 0-4.

Gradually though Maghera, and particularly Doherty, hauled themselves back into the game with some excellent scores, with McShane and Daithi McLaughlin combining to put JP McGuigan in on goal to level the game at

3-3 to 1-9 in the 29th minute.

In added time, they pulled three clear and that advantage crept up to

1-15 to 3-5 with a Doherty free in the 36th minute.

The Academy then hit back with a goal from Daly after Nathan Connolly’s point effort came off a post.

There followed two points for each team before McGuigan and McShane burst through the centre and Conleth McGuckin was on hand to claim the 47th minute goal.

Victory was in the bag at that point, but fittingly Doherty was able to nail a 54th minute goal after approach work from McShane and then complete the scoring in added time with his 11th point.

Maghera : C Convery, C Milne, S Murray, S Turner, E Mulholland 0-1, C Glass, S McKenna, C McShane capt 0-1, P Shivers 0-1, E Doherty, JP McGuigan 1-0, D McLaughlin, C McGuckin 1-1, A Doherty 1-11, 0-4 frees, E Downey 0-4, 0-2 frees.

Subs: O Doherty for C Glass (52), S Kearney for C McGuckin (59), C O’Neill for JP McGuigan (59), O McClafferty for E Downey (63).

Dungannon : D Fox, C Hurson, M McCusker, O McHugh 1-0, R Duffin, P Keogh, L Kilpatrick, K Barker, N Connolly 0-1, L Conlon 0-2 frees, R McCabe, T Loughran 0-2, M Conroy 0-4, 0-2 frees, L Quinn 1-0, S Daly 2-1.

Subs: F Donaghy for K Barker (28), J Cormac for L Quinn (ht), T McCormick for L Kilpatrick (43), S Donnelly for N Connolly (55), R McHugh for R McCabe (59), C Murphy for T Loughran (59).

Referee : Brendan Toland (Antrim)

Under 21 draw found here;

It's a bit stop start. Slaughtneil and Loup in the senior final hasn't helped matters and the minor final only being played last week delayed the games involving Kilrea and Dungiven.

With Slaughtneil being in ulster hurling final next weekend I can't see that Slaughneil and Loup game being played next weekend either.

Swatragh winning tonight I think leaves them playing Ballinderry.

The corresponding Rannafast Cup was won by St McCartan's Monaghan beating St Mary's Magherafelt in the final with them beating St Pat's Caven and St Pius Magherafelt in the semi finals respectively.

The groups for this year's MacRory are:

Group A
Patrician High Carrickmacross, St Mary's Magherafelt, Colman's, Omagh and Caven

Group B
Lurgan, Bessbrook, Dungannon, The Abbey and St Mccarten's

Group C
St Pat's Armagh, Maghera, Enniskillen and St Mary's Belfast

I would know more about Maghera more than any of the other schools involved. There is a lot of turnover in their team from last year so I think they will find it difficult to make an impact this year.

Nice to see Belfast back in the MacRory.
