McGinley is another alright who has joined the mercenary gravy train..the money he asked for to take a neighbouring club was obscene
What sort of totals are we talking?
For the average club that starts training in January & are involved right through to Oct/November - you're talking ~120 Sessions @ 3x times a week [40 weeks]
At £40 a session (just a figure I know used to be the going rate) that's still only £4800
Even at £60 a session [Fair enough?] its £7200, a lot of money but not figures like £25k that I hear being thrown out the odd time (>£200 per session - surely no-one is really getting that?)

As johnnycool says, most can be started with the same key, even different manufacturers use the same key
& the key code (if its relatively new) will no doubt be written on the inside of with machine with a marker - that's if it has been changed from the default, 1066, 1945 etc

Yeah it would leave blank rows

put the formulae in SheetB & add a filter to the column headings to not display blank values
fill the formula down all rows

You could use 2 new columns in sheet A
Column 1;
This looks in sheet B for the corresponding data - where A2 =A2, then return column 3

Column 2:
This displays the data returned in the lookup if C2 = Yes otherwise leaves in blank

EDIT: - no need for 2 columns, just put the vlookup inside the if

Kam wah! Now that's a blast from he past! Always preferred it over Temps across the road
Ate way too many Emerald Specials during my time up there

Belfast City council's "Scores on the Doors" came out when we were in final year; everywhere we ate regularly had zero

Agreed that teams appreciate the competitive games

I was at the Drumragh V Errigal III Reserve Championship game.
Errigal fielded a very strong team of players that was mostly made up of thirds Senior players

It was a little disappointing to see a team of young lads that have had a strong league campaign, get completely whipped at home by the "same" team they beat in the league at dunmoyle

Playing Senior players in the Reserve Championship is a completely different debate to what you guys are discussing here but its the sort of thing that may add to any gripe some might have about a thirds team

Got my Son's recently & was 8 days after the estimated date - 2 days after it said on the online tracker that it had been dispatched
Edit - this was for a first time passport

In South Antrim (mostly the belfast clubs) we have a south antrim league. its pretty much recreational football, played every thursday night. 15 a side if both teams have 15 if 1 team has 13 then 13 a side is played. works great, clubs grade 15 players who can't play. its always a good mix of older lads in their late 30s early 40s and some lads who need game time and also some lads who just dont wanna commit to senior or senior reserve. i think there are 12 teams in the league and there are very few fail to field. also have a championship for it. As its pretty much all belfast teams there is very little travelling which probably helps a lot too.
When I lived in Belfast my housemate played for St.Brigids in this league. It looked like good craic and to be honest was a little tempting to someone driving up & down the road to train/play Division 3 Reserves at home.
Itís a good way to keep people involved in the club who canít commit to the Tuesday, Friday, Sunday commitments of most teams. (That said; Football is more enjoyable when youíre in good shape as already pointed out)
Keeping people involved after they stop playing competitively means more volunteers, more revenue and a stronger club community.

Insurance issues can be worked out Iím sure. Much the same as entering a 5-a-side competition with your mates

The main drawback of such a competition would be that it would be more attractive to some current Reserve players & could affect numbers in that league.

Anyway, less of this day dreaming...

Have said it before on here; there's a requirement for a recreational league.
  • 8 weeks
  • Summer evenings
  • No posponements or refixtures
Its the sort of thing a club could run off as a fundraiser. Team entrance fees contributed by those playing, so no burden on the clubs represented. Club running it gets those fees.
They could even run it as a Garvaghy fundraiser and play the games up there

MOT question & didn't want to start a new thread;
I want to get a vintage car MOT'd for the summer. Soonest date I can get online is 3 weeks away..

Any time I've left a car at the mechanics to get MOT'd they've managed to get a slot pretty soon.

Do mechanics have some sort of "direct line"  ;) to get customers cars in that week, or are they just calling up each morning for cancellation slots?

Would the most relegated also be the most promoted!

Just as a matter of interest are there many teams who have never left Junior football in the history of the club??

Have Dregish ever made it to Intermediate?

Surely they played a bit before they got promoted to Senior that time?

Who won the contract?
Whats the problem with being too heavily dependent on wind for power?

The blocking of certain programmes is particularly distasteful. For example, why would they block Ireland soccer matches, but allow Rugby or Gaelic?

On freeview they block shows on RTE 2 standard definition, but if you move on up the channel list to RTE 2 HD it isn't blocked  ;)

Have always thought there was a demand for a 3rds/Social league in Tyrone.
Played out over 8-10 weeks in the summer months on Thursday/Friday evenings, with No postponements.
Short travel distances Ė East & West leagues may suit
Have often thought itíd be something the club could run off themselves, if the county board arenít interested, as a fundraiser Ė have a finals weekend etc

The main issue I see is that this would suit some current Reserve players better than Reserve football & lead to Reserve teams not fieldingÖ.
