Cushendall most improved team? How exactly?
they had the beating of a full strength Dunloy team with some of their main players missing

i left that game against Cdall in the group game relieved to have got the win and disappointed in our performance.

If the shoe was on the other foot and it had of been us missing players and only have lost by 1 point against a full Cdall team id of been quietly very happy with that.

Our footballers are out this weekend in the championship and we have 6 starters from that Cdall game involved with it so its a fingers crossed job we dont lose anyone for the Lgeil game.

Great to be saying something positive about the CCC ! The u21 Football competition has been revamped into 5 group league format along a divisional basis then A&B knockout championship all county thereby each team gets at least 4 matches

Maith thu CCC!

at this stage of the year its madness. earlier in the year it would of made sense but not now.

its a good idea but the timing of the competition is just all wrong. the U21 hurling championship has been and gone ages ago so how come the football is played off in the winter.

Dunloy wernt full strenght and in a game that meant nothing i wouldnt be taking too much away from it.

neither side were that night. that being said we were very poor that night and only for the fact so were Cdall we would of been beaten.

but its all shadow boxing for the real games coming up.

second game i felt we got a goal at a vital time in the game to get in front. if im honest i thought we were lucky to win it.

A bit like that last league game between ourselves in Dunloy. got a draw when we should of got beat.

Lamh Dhearg vs cargin  - referee from St Galls and the winner probably plays st galls in the semi final.

The referee has a good reputation but for the avoidance of any doubt he shouldn't be reffing it. END OF. Problem Solved

I'm not sure if you are aware of the counties low intake of referee's each year?, people are unwilling to go forward with it as they will generally come up against people like yourself and others..

If a Cargin man referees a St Galls club league/Championship match, which happens often, do we lose the run of ourselves? Catch yourself on

Pick the best two men for the job regardless of their club (obviously not reffing their own club)
Let them do what they have done for years to get there and ref two of the biggest three games of the year in the county.

Think clubs should start concerning themselves more with the standard of football in the county and the standard of player than worrying about the attitude of a ref in a certain game.

prob the most sensible post ive seen in a while.

Sad news from Randalstown about Darryl Heatley, an absolute gent, Iím sure some of you would have known him from playing against him.


just heard this myself. i went to the tech in Ballymena with him for a few years. Came up against him a few times in the camogie when he was over Creggan girls as well.

A great fella. Shocking news.

What are the dates for the semi finals in the senior and when is the draw for it?

noticed the side line being moved in lol thought it was funny myself.

Poor enough game i thought from ourselves. wasn't much of a game in fairness for a neutral to watch. also very few goal chances for either side which was rare.

both sides look like theres a lot more in them for further down the line.

I got caught up at work and completely missed the game DR. Home just in time for then post mortems! No excuses from us Dunloy are definitely in the mix now. Heard good reports about Deaghlan Smyths brother at full forward. And Shean Elliott too, obviously.

to be fair it was nip and tuck for the whole first half. use defended deep and closed out all of the space forcing mistakes and wides on our end. You defended well but couldnt break out at pace and in the numbers when our attacks broke down.

Your centre half and captain looks a good strong player.

Aye young Anthony is starting to stretch out as he gets older and is developing into a good player.

i cant see the draw being open at all for the semi finals. makes no sense to have the same teams face each other again.

i thought it was 1st v 2nd in the opposite groups in each case? otherwise whats the point

JJ you are a laugh - dunloy are the clear favourites, League table doesnt lie - did Dunloy win the league last year?

At ht last year you looked like the winners only to be caught sleeping in the first 12mins of the 2nd half and yep they blew you away; While dunloy might win on sat, with Neil and a few others missing on your side - i would still put you lot as favourites; You have now a few younger players bedded into the team and should be better prepared to deal with the movement of the Dunloy inside forward line but who knows time will tell - I think Cdall are the favourites but then again so where Galway.

I agree with you on one thing, this Saturday's game is an utter irrelevance. Your comparison of ourselves and Galway is a bit daft. Maybe it's the maroon shirts? Galway won the All Ireland last year (Dunloy won the county championship last year), Galway were the form team this year (Dunloy are the form team in Antrim this year). Yes we have a few new youngsters in this year but unproven at championship level. Where as from 1-15 Dunloy have players who have a proven championship pedigree. Do Dunloy not like being the best in the county at the moment or what?   

Dont mind being the favourites if people want to call us that  ;)

to be honest i never expected us to win it last year at all so it was a welcome surprise to lift it when we did. At HT i thought we were in big bother as Cdall were winning the battles all over the pitch. the second half was, well, out of the blue.

This year we have been steadily going along well enough. we are winning games but like i said before its only just winning them.

put it this way, come sat i wouldnt want to bet my wages on us winning as i see it as a 50/50 game.

St Galls favourites for the double now I assume after eliminating feile champs and current unbeaten league leaders All Saints minors last night. Another generation waiting in the wings perhaps??

seen that minor result the other night BS, was surprised at it as thats a good ballymena team.

On a side note why wasnt the minor match on the new pitch tuesday night? could of done with them lights in the last 15mins lol
