County Board do not have a sponsor for the Club Championship yet because Donnelly Bros pulled out after what happened with Mc Aleer and Rushe! FACT! That's why the draw hasn't been made yet!

Donnelly Brothers three year contract for sponsorship expired at the end of last season so it may also be related to that surely?

The negative publicity after the Galbally incident may have deterred them from renewing or perhaps they just thought they weren't getting value for money? They're still the kit van sponsor so it's not as if they've pulled out completely.

The way the club championship is rushed through totally diminishes it. A box ticking exercise.  Is little wonder they pulled the plug

What was the galbally incident?

http://www.irishnews.com/news/2016/09/12/news/banners-with-northern-ireland-map-removed-at-gaa-match-690737/

I never knew that happened. That's Galbally all over. What an arsehole.

You'll find it was an individual reaction not supported by Galbally.

It was probably this guy.

Yes can safely say Harte s biggest supporters would generally be middle class neo Catholic, SDLP types who would not have seen much action in the 30 year war.

Im not sure if this is a go at me by Benny but what I'm saying is his actions weren't endorsed by Galbally as a club, maybe by individuals in the club I dunno.

Any other criac naw?

Seen a great wee piece on MFC's facebook page about having games on Saturdays,
Even a 50/50 split of fixtures on Saturday/Sundays would be great, like each week have a few games dedicated on saturdays, I know a lot of players like to go watch other clubs, esp there neighbors playing in matches, again its gong to raise attendances at grounds and would surely be welcomed by clubs and players!

Great idea regarding the 50/50 split of fixtures, I think if a motion like that was put forward for clubs to decide it would be passed.. Can't see the 'top table' in Garvaghy ever letting it happen though!

Add to this disregarding Reserve structure and introducing stand alone divisions for seconds team which has relegation involved and can be played at different times like during the week or Friday evenings. This would add more incentive to teams to fulfill fixtures and compete for promotion as a team and not a club.

Do any other Ulster counties follow the separate reserve fixtures/leagues? I know Monaghan do as my cousins play junior B and they think it's a great system. In fact, Monaghan are also trialling a new system for senior teams too, great to see alternatives being given a shot.

Split Reserves East & West to avoid long journeys and Div 1,2,3 in both. Play on a Friday night say. You'd soon see participation numbers rocket. But this is too good of an idea to be implemented. I'd love to play a bit but I work long hours and with young children the weekend is for them and not me.

Armagh split the reserves into north and south and play on a Wednesday night. About a dozen teams in each league. About another dozen clubs donít field reserve teams and then there are a few that play division 3.

The island only one win win so far albeit theyíve got beaten by Killyclogher, Errigal and now Omagh. Early days obviously but doesnít bode well for their ambitions to be beaten by 3 of the top sides.

Superb performance from Dromore U21ís last night defeating Dungannon 1-11 to 0-09 to win only their second ever county U21 title.  We may be a year or two away from a championship challenge but Dromore will be thereabouts for another while yet

Down play the majority of their senior games on a Friday night. They have a Premier Reserve League for the stronger teams and also an East Down and South Down Reserve Leagues (not much GAA in North Down). The reserve games are played on a different night and as far as I know reserve games apart fron Premier Division are 13-a-side

Seen the result fair play to Dromore! I think dromore have massively under-achieved this last 6/7 years with the players they've had.. always there or there abouts and I'd expect the same this year. Underage success doesn't always guarantee senior success though!
