For those of you that cant afford to buy the Irish News.......

Irish News

ANTRIM joint manager Terence McNaughton was understandably reserved in his delight at yesterday's historic win for the Saffrons, who took their first competitive win over the Kilkenny for almost 20 years, thanks to a slender one-point victory at Freshford.

Wins over the Cats at any grade are certainly important, but a win in January should perhaps be taken with a health warning, even though this was certainly a hard-fought and warranted win for the visitors, in a keenly-contested encounter.

McNaughton was happy with the performance of his youthful side, and top scorer Liam Watson, who finished the contest with 1-8 to his credit.

"Although it's nice to beat them, we aren't going to get carried away," he said.

"We had only one guy in the forward line that wasn't under 21. We had a full U21 team except for Liam Watson. Any day you come to Kilkenny and beat them is a good day for Antrim, whether it's the Walsh Cup or not. We haven't had a fixture for a long time either."

Kilkenny lined out with seven of last year's All-Ireland-winning side, with a further five first choice players propping up the bench, something which wasn't lost on Sambo or his side.

"There are no bad Kilkenny teams and we keep talking about Kilkenny's strength-in-depth and they have two teams while the rest of us struggle to get one," he added.

"I'm very pleased about it, but the one thing which really pleases me was that we fought away and harried away. It was typical January hurling from both teams, but it's great to see us battle hard. We will take a lot more out of it than Kilkenny will be worried about."

Kilkenny only returned from their team holiday in Dubai and Thailand, last Thursday and although their manager Brian Cody didn't see this loss having a major effect on his preparations for the rest of the year, he was still disappointed with the defeat and the effort shown by his side.

"No I don't see it is a setback, we are just starting off, we don't come up to lose any game, but I would be happy in the sense that they kept fighting at it and they just didn't say 'ah we are just back from holidays'," Cody said. "We are back into training now and we are looking forward to the rest of the year now."

Cody was high in his praise for a young Antrim side who showed great teamwork and skill to execute this win.

"I thought Antrim were very good there and their skill was very good out there, they also impressed with me with their defending," he added.

"We were on holidays, that wasn't the end of the world," Cody added.

"We were out there, we were competitive, we kept going to the very end, we tried to win it, we just didn't come up here to play a game, we came up here to try win the game but Antrim were better on the day without a shadow of a doubt."

Well, that's it... the worm has turned ... first Sunday in September it is then. I would start sending email around the banks now looking for tickets. But seriously, no nonsense, well done lads. The fact is that Sambo and Woody must have kept the squad fit over the last few months -  but probably a false dawn. And I should know, for I have seen some false Saffron dawns in my time..

Aye we will enjoy it while it lasts, i hope the players/management use th result in the right way and not think they have it made. There will probably be some heavy beatings in the league to look forward to and a thumping by Galway in the championship.

Missed LT and Gates, Jackson and Chambers are good, not great receivers. Pats are beatable, but not this year  dont think.

I want Obama to wint he democratic nomination, I want anyone to win before Clinton because I see her as the Thatcher of the . She has a past as sordid as her husbands and I cant stand the sight of her.

Obama is easily the most personable and enthuasistic candidate of them all however he has flown up through the ranks and is seen as politically naive and too inexperienced to become president. I think he would be a breath of fresh air and I would vote for him against any republician except McCain.

I can't believe I just said that. :-[

I remember reading somewhere that  Clinton may have been one of the sleaziest president in US history but also one of the best, does it really matter what he did in his private life if he was doing his job efficientley?

Lads i would implore youse not to get too carried away, how many false dawns have we had in Antrim? The League will be a better barometer of where we are, when teams have their "eye on the ball" a bit more. A great result nonetheless. When we beat Galway a copule of years ago we didnt build on it, we must build on this but it will be difficult given the opposition in the league. I would also imagine the Cats will be waiting for us to make amends in a few weeks time.

Stelling is the antidote to Gary Lineker, genuinely funny.
