The first evening of league action for soooooo long. This needs to change. We had a predictable win. Draperstown started well but when we settled down we took control and looked comfortable. Artie's 4 lad probably the best on the pitch. On another note,Tiernan Walsh is a quality defender but didn't play for Derry u20s.  More questions!

Any thoughts, derry had 3/4 injured players on the field during final. Can someone explain why this happened, I feel sorry for the lads on bench, who never were going to get on. The glen and bellaghy 20s had a good night back with their clubs from what I hear. Can Mickey Donnelly survive the roller coaster crash??

Great fight back by the 20s. Hopefully a couple push through to seniors although itís a big step to be ready for senior football. A lot of them still look like youngsters so serious work needed to get physically ready for it. Hopefully some sort of development program put in for all these lads to do.... and keep some of the parents and clubs from wrecking their heads.

I was at the u20s last night, thankfully the bellaghy crew saw us over the line, fair play to them, some great talent coming through.   Bellaghy unlike other clubs are going the right way. Having watched st pats this year, fermanagh will fancy their chances, don't think they would let a 10pt lead slip.

I was in owenbeg Saturday, derry u20s were outgunned by a very good cavan team. Good to see Oisin McWilliams getting a game under his belt, he will be key for rest of year. Noticeable change of team from minor grade, something similar to Tyrone. Definitely work to do but have the big game players and hopefully all available injury free.before the Armagh game.

Them Maghera ones are some slabbers along a line. What would they be like if they ever win anything
In fairness Bellaghy had two penalties waved away, scoreline flattered glen abit. Btw who is the black haired guy from bellaghy mgt who had a lot to say, strange accent? A day for shocks all round with all the favourites turned over, prob the biggest shock swatragh, fair play to them bringing the youth through.....

Concannon has to start on form, surely? In fact Sean Quinn would be unlucky to be dropped too.  Might mean putting Karl in the half backs and trying Chrissy in midfield again. But I know damn all tbf

Oh aye, Odhran Lynch should start too.
I was at the game and would agree concannon has serious potential, not so sure about Chrissy in midfield....He was poor. Bar one wayward kick out posties restarts were good...Derry missed the boat against a weakened Tyrone team imho

Well done to our magnificent Minors at the weekend on their championship victory.  Itís been a long time coming but itís great to finally get a victory in this competition.  Shows the strength of our club all over.  Hurling, Football and Camogie, young and old.  Great show of respect from two of our clubmen to help carry off young Glass.  Hope his injury isnít too bad.  Disappointing that in an age of player welfare, esp underage players that Glen hadnít a Physio or anyone to carry him off. 

Two massive games this week.  Two Ulster finals and a big ask of both teams, but I think the both are capable of victory.

Wonderful times to be a Slaughtneil supporter.

would have to agree with the lack of medical cover, congrats to the minors, better team on the day

Who are the 30 best footballers in Derry for Barton to pick from.. I think he might do well.

You don't know who are the best 30 footballers in are, yet you think he will do well, interesting logic you have.

Glen V S'neil minor final. Will the nailers stop Geln for an historic 5 in a row.

Geln :), young mcguigan is a class act imho

Heard the Dubs scored 10.13 (we coudlnt be that bad) dont know what Derry scored, they no way Derry minors could be that bad alot of them lads have experience with St pats and the Glen
Anything is possible when nobody (NOBODY) has faith in our inadequate management. The future is poor "UNTIL" our underage structure is reconstructed,we are already many years behind other counties. Adrian mc guckin,Anthony tohill,niall Conway,enda gormley,henry downey jeez our county is full of intelligent coaches who aren't being utilised.

I see a full round of minor league matches fixed for Monday night, doubt any such games will be played in Donegal.

It's irrelevant who Magherafelt play in the final. They've been the best side throughout the feile so far and I've no doubt will bring some silverware back to the club. UTR

Having seen screen and swatragh feile teams play, it pains me to say lavey will be 2014 champs Monday evening. Fair play seamus

Workmanlike rather than spectacular performance from our u21s tonight in Bellaghy. Pulled away after about 35 mins but game could have been over after 20 if we'd taken even half of the goal chances presented. Peter Cassidy from frees and r mcelwee the pick of the Bellaghy players. Game was enjoyable and well refereed by dan Mullan. Cannot understand the constant berating by both sets of supporters for even the most obvious frees. Great to see Danny tallon getting back up near his own exceptionally high standards. One a separate note, I hope cccc can now retrospectively deal with Oisin Duffy now that video evidence is available. No place for that shite in our games. Best punishment would be a spell watching his teammates from the sidelines. That, and the antics of ballinderry nos 2 and 6 need to be highlighted. I'm sure their respective families are bursting with pride.

Wish there were more like Dan Mullan, game would be in better shape

I once heard a story that kilrea would never win a championship after a dreaded curse was visited on them by an irate grandmother of an upperlands player who was dropped in favour of one of five rasharkin men brought in for the John McLaughlin campaign. The latter group all grew beards and assumed local names for the ruse. Accents didn't prove to be a problem. Rather than report the club to the county board, Thompson Dalzell's granny swore the cup would never pass Clark's Mill until Ulster Scots was officially recognised in a GAA match day programme. It sounds plausible!

gormless is wrong,completely wrong and only gilbert crawford put his foot down they would be out of the competition,which would be unfortunate for a very talented group of player's who only want to play football whether it be for school club or county.

Talking of this man, is there any truth that Gilbert, the big GAA man that he is, has agreed to sponser the Glen team for the incoming year in return for them lining his pockets with rent for his building and hopes to change the colour of their Jerseys to orange??  ;)

Oh Silly Billy, you've opened a can of worms here!
Is this the same Gilbert, where half your club shops and works??

Speaking of Orange, does the local grandmaster of the orange order still have a pitch side banner up at Emmet Park? From memory I think he sells 'orange' flowers?

Dont be in to support him so no idea who shops or works there.  Also if this pitch side banner exists is it not better to take money from them than give it to them?

What a bullshit argument!!
Given your history of murky side deals with the RUC you'd be be better off keeping your head down and mouth shut!

Jeez qwerty your wile uptight about this all.  i just asked who your sponsers for the incoming year were gonna be.  We were all sitting in the Dugout the out night debating this.  Some thought it would be Morgan Fuels, others thought Garmin or TomTom, while a few went for IrishRoadMaps!!  ;D

As for the murky deals you talk off, i'm sure you can provide loads of evidence to back your claims cause if you dont might i suggest you have the BULLSHIT ARGUEMENT!!

Thee thinks thou doth protests too much! Go talk to the aul hands son ....

So in other words you were talking shit and have no real evidence to back up bullshit claims spouted almost 15 years ago?
