He won a Sigerson medal, a Senior C'ship medal and an U-21 Club C'ship medal all in the one year.

not a bad year i suppose  :P

Surely the SFC and U21 were last year?

But IF Crozier hadnt have played for the minors that day, and IF CJ hadnt played for La Salle, Antrim would have won last years Ulster u-21 c`ship. They ran the winners Tyrone, to two points(one highly disputed) in Omagh in the semi-final.

Im sure that maybe they might have made a difference, but can you honestly say that they would have beaten tyrone.  Tyrone would have raised their game, they definitely went into that game with a sense of arrogance!

Crozier and McGourty both played for Antrim minors in some whackfuckery Minor League match rather than the under-21 championship match.  Antrim may or may not have beaten Tyrone had both played for the under-21s.

However, I would expect both to make Antrim's first fifteen for the Senior championship this year.

Nrico, Two full sides at Casement, no doubt Antrim would have won. But thats only an opinion, something we will never know. The players themselves know that, and thats the main thing. Their day will come.
But it still makes me sick to know that our first Ulster title in years was fucked up by a mixture of ignorance by certain selectors, and officialdom who still cant face up to the fact.

Bottom line is the match was lost off the field. Thats my opinion and sorry, but it will never change. Now, as Syd said yesterday, we must put it behind us and hopefully that group will put it right for themselves in future years.

Johnjoe, , stating that they would win, no doubt isexpressing a certain amount of certainty around antrims chances of beating tyrone at casement.  I simply believe that Tyrone players would have raised their game if need be.  Do you think that antrims u-21 side this year will challenge Tyrones then?

Wouldnt be right of me to cast aspersions on this years side, and maybe i am a bit biased, as Slim will know, but last years team was our best chance for a long time, and certain people managed to completely screw it up.

Question is, how many St Johns players will make the starting 15 this year, and more importantly, how many should?

Antrim 1-10 Wexford 2-14 Was it as bad as the scoreline suggests?

We got our goal at the death to give the scoreline some semblance of respectability......I was gonna say its gonna be a long season but i think it will actually be pretty short !!!!

Said it before and I`ll say it again.

If you were compiling a list of our best 10 or 12 players in the county, all or most of the followiing would be on that list.

In no particular order, Convery, Mc Gourty, O`Boyle, Micko, O`Boyle again, Kelly, Magill., and Andy Mc Clean. Then there is Crozier and young CJ. Theres 10 would be on my county team.

I know theres all sorts of reasons why the above werent available yesterday, but the facts are we are a pretty poor outfit without them. If I were Jody, I know what my priorities would be over the next few weeks.

Plus, I would be sitting down with players and getting them to state, or sign up, to their position on going to the States, to avoid last years debacle of guys playing on a saturday, knowing if they were beaten they were off to Boston or somewhere within a few hours.

Looks like the white flag was thrown in again yesterday, thats the sad thing!
