Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Fixtures
« on: October 11, 2016, 03:27:43 PM »
I would propose 2 Scenarios for Senior Football:
Scenario 1.) Return to 4 Leagues of 12 Teams. Each team plays 11 games at home and 11 away from home. Starred Fixtures would be scrapped, with County Players playing in a minimum of 11 games, playing each team at least once. This provides the average Club Player with more League Football, whilst also assuring the County Player of still playing the minimum 10/11 games as currently.
Scenario 2.) Keep current Format. Play each team in your league once, with 15 League games for each Club, and 5 of which are starred. Doesn't eliminate any of the current problems for the Club Plyer. Possibly reintroduce the League Cups, but teams also loss interest in these with no effect on League or Championship.

For Reserve Football, I would propose splitting the connection between Senior & Reserves. Teams would begin the 2017 campaign based on their Standing from the 2016 Season. Fixtures would be standalone on a separate evening (Possibly Fridays, with Seniors on Saturday/Sunday). Reserve teams could then be promoted/relegated depending on their own performances and not Seniors. This would alleviate a lot of hammerings in Reserve football. And, may also keep young lads interested. Plus, have the League wrapped up by August to begin Championship. Team for Championship could not involve anyone who played the Previous Senior Championship. Reserve League Squad also determined by previous Senior Campaign or Senior League Games that current Season. Possible Separate East/West Leagues with Winners of each side to meet in Division 1/2/3 Finals?

With Ireland's participation in the Euro 2016 Championships upcoming, has there been much talk of many Club Players heading away for a week or 2 to watch? Or Clubs looking games changed to accomodate.
I am almost sure I remember something similar in 2012, but cant remember what accomodations were made?
Tyrone play on Sunday 19th June. Possibility for free weekend on 12th and 19th to suit?

Anyone know the schedule of Minor Football for the remainder of the Season? If they play the Season without a break, the games will be:
Minor League S/F - Wednesday 4th May
Minor Championship S/F - Wednesday 11th May
Minor League S/F - Wednesday 18th May
Minor Championship S/F - Wednesday 25th May.

This would be right into the middle of Exams Period which I would say alot of parents may object to.

Any opinions?

Just wondering what's the latest story with Niall McKenna?
I know he's been in and out of the panel over the years and had a few injuries but will we see him back in the team this year.

Actually looking at the 2008 AI winning minor team not too many made it through to the seniors.
Is McNabb sitting out the national league or where has he been this year?
Who was C.O'Neill at 15?


T Harney; F McQuaid, G Teague, R Tierney (0-02); S MacRory, P Harte (0-01, 0-01 pen), R McNabb (0-01); N McKenna (0-02), R Keenan; C Gervin (0-01), D McNulty, M Donnelly (0-02); K Coney (0-05), P McNeice (0-03, 0-03f), C O'Neill (1-03, 0-02f).

How many of that team still play football for club, never mind county?
Tim Harney - Transferred to Pearse Og in Armagh, Dont think he played much last year
Ronan Tierney - Havent heard his name mentioned for Errigal unless he plays 3rds?
Stephen McRory - Same as Tierney
Diarmaid McNulty - Heard talk he doesnt play anymore.

Add to the equation that the likes of Gavin Teague, Niall McKenna, Conor Gervin, Kyle Coney, Paddy McNeice and Conor O Neill (Dromore) always seem to be injured or not playing regularly for club.

I dont know all who was on the bench that year, but I would safely say alot of them dont play anymore either?

So called Golden Generation

That's not jayo Quinn that used to play for cooks town is it

Surely it can't be?? I thought they roaded him a couple of years ago with good reason!

Did Cookstown get rid of another manager?

Any word on the GAA Ulster Club League fixtures, or what Tyrone teams are taking part? Generally a good few teams take part from Tyrone each year!

Think this wee tournament should be played in Summer when county men not available - would give all clubs quality 'friendly' games to keep everyone at club level interested during the respective county seasons. Appreciate some counties out earlier than others but surely competitive friendly games are good prep for club championship.

Games played mid week as well to take advantage of light evenings. Teams could travel max 45/60 mins for a quality friendly / challenge games with a competitive outcome and s result that determines something. Official referees as well to keep everyone on their toes !!!

Is that a proposal?
I'll second it.

That is a good idea to be fair. But I also think it serves a purpose in pre season to offer the same benefits of organised friendlies, with official referees and something to play for in preparation for the beginning of the league.

We have already discussed the situation regarding the County minors and playing Club Senior Football, can anyone on this board clarify the situation regarding 17 year olds playing senior football? To my memory there was a proposal to introduce that rule this year. Very surprised smaller clubs have not tried to object to this!

Noone is doubting the work teamtalk do and the coverage they give to our games..it really is incredible.
But I think we all agree its impossible to select an allstar team across 3 divisions, and as someone pointed out anyone lucky  enough to be selected is more a reflection of the clubs achievement that year than anythine else. I would read absolutely nothing else into it.
Reality is its the club PR machine that gets the player selected in most cases.

I think instead of looking at those who have been nominated, or County Players who possibly werent. We should look at the number of clubs in Tyrone that have yet to receive a nomination in the years Teamtalk have been doing these awards. This would lead you to believe that only Clubs who were successful during the season seem to warrant an award. I believe this is unfair. There are many players who are exceptional all season for their club, but due to various reasons their club may struggle and therefore the player's importance to the club, and their performances all season are not rewarded.

I heard that the Lough are contemplating not fielding in the playoff v the losers of Urney and Gortin.
Big decision needed asap before the whole thing gets very messy

I cant fathom how Loughmacrory, and particularly Gortin are been punished for the Rock's actions. I am hearing last night that the reason Rock didnt field was because they had a stag. Last game before a playoff and lads decide to go off on a drinking weekend - some commitment. Moy also had a stag and they were able to field a team v Augher. Rock need punished for this. Did Glen Maghera not do something similar in Derry this year v Ballinderry. They were punished with 3 point deduction and 1 point next year to memory. Dont know if the deductions stuck wtih Glen, but if i had my way they certainly would. Dirty action on 2 clubs affected. If Gortin do end up playing in a playoff game, it will be a tasty affair!!

Well, Galbally or Aghyaran automatically?

Then 4 from 8. I wouldn't rule out Moortown winning their final 2.

Aghyaran have both Derrylaughan and Moortown, both down at the loughshore unless im mistaken, could be hard pushed to operate that and come away with 2 wins. Big games for all three teams. There's a lot of teams in that mix that have yet to play each other and will have a huge bearing on the final table positions. Pomeroy have both Cookstown and Derrytresk and Cookstown have Stewartstown in their other game who are still very much in the mix. Absolute melting pot at the minute as far as I can see.. this weekends result will clear a few things up no doubt

Aghyaran play Derrylaughan at home this weekend, and I expect them to win this. They are away to Moortown next week at the Loughshore. Depending on Moortown's result v Loughmacrory this weekend, will have a massive bearing on the side they put out v Aghyaran and the result in that game. Galbally have the easier of the run ins with 2 home games so I predict them for automatic along with Edendork. Hard to see past Aghyaran or Kildress for the playoffs as they will have momentum and form on their side you would imagine.

The bottom of Division 2 is just as exciting. I expect Kildress to take points from the Rock as they push for playoffs and Eskra to confirm safety with a home win v a deflated Urney after last weekend. Gortin face a tough task away to the Hill who are also pushing the playoffs. A win for them could possibly also secure safety and confine Urney and Rock to the playoffs. Loughmacrory still in the mix also with tough games v Moortown and Kildress.

11   Loughmacrory                 12     4   6   2   150   169   10
12   Eskra Emmetts                11     4   6   1   136   134   9
13   Urney St Colmcille's        12     4   7   1   160   199   9
14   Gortin St Patrick's        12     3   8   1   149   171   7
15   Rock St Patrick's        12     2   7   3   137   159   7
16   Killeeshil St Mary's        12     1   10   1   115   203   3

On the topic of head to head, etc earlier in the week, and with the bottom half of division 2 looking very tight, what is the ruling on safety/relegation where there are a few teams tied on points, etc? Killeeshil look in bother and doomed for the trap door straight down. Any two from Rock, Gortin, Urney, Eskra or the Lough could be dragged into the playoffs at this stage.

All intermediate games off next weekend because of the Galbally v Derrylaughan replay. So that will be 4/5 week break for intermediate teams that are out of the championship! Crazy stuff!!

This is a joke. All clubs were given the fixtures and dates to be played before end of the season. Why was there no provision made for a draw/replays? Could Intermediate games for clubs not affected by the draw not have went ahead on Saturday. Also play the replay on Saturday/Sunday, then play the league fixture midweek some night?
Clubs have planned their schedules to the end of season based on these fixtures released after Tyrone were defeated. There are clubs flying home players in Division 2 that I am aware off, so I would presume they will loss the flight money for this weekend?

Any word of fixtures for next weekend or will we have to wait on the Irish News tomorrow?

County website has been updated today to show that all postponed fixtures will be squeezed in before the 1st round of the championship so all teams will have played the required 5 games. This weekend is round 3 (the round postponed for the under 21 final), then the following weekend Coalisland v Trillick and Clonoe v Donaghmore are being played after being called off for unplayable pitches a few weeks ago.

Why is Tyrone GAA website showing all Round 3 league fixtures for this weekend as postponed?
