Can anyone name a Div 2 or 3 player who should be on the panel and isn't?
Darragh kavanagh for augher has been top scorer in div 2 for last two years but didn't even get asked to trials this year.
Unfortunately doesn't do it on the big days. Was a passenger for long periods of the County Final. For example, I imagine if he had of gotten his desired transfer to Errigal Ciaran I would imagine he'd be a bit part player.

Is every championship game not a 'big day' and he was MOTM in the first round, the quarter final and the semi-final

Unfortunately I wasn't at the first round game but I am led to believe Aidan Cassidy bossed proceedings that day. As for the QF he was held scoreless from play and in the Semi it was Connor Hackett who was MOTM. I've no problem with the lad as I think he is a very talented free taker in Div 2, however my grievance was with STG mentioning him as potential county standard. I believe there to be many many footballers in the lower divisions who would deservedly stake a claim before him. Even from within the Augher club I would suggest there are players with a better claim. Just my opinion.

Sorry twouptwodown, but their is nobody in augher team close to kavanagh. Scored 2-9 in champ semi final and averaged close to 7 points a game over 15 league games. I'm not sure if he proper county standard but deserved a crack at trials or Mc Kenna cup.

Scored 2.09 yet Hackett was still given MOTM. He reminds me a lot of Aidan McCarron from Fintona a few years back. Scored plenty in the league for the club yet just was nowhere near that level of a county player. So much so that he sought a transfer to play within another county. Given the past of DK it wouldn't surprise me if he tried something similar ;D . All joking aside I would not argue he is their main scoring threat but IMO Finbar McQuaid is the standard bearer in that Augher team and Cassidy (when fit) would have been similar.

He was MOTM in those first 3 championship games in the Tyrone Hearld.  And anyone who was at the SF would be in no doubt he was MOTM although Conor was excellent on the day as well.  Agree with you about Cas unfortunately just a career blighted with injuries.  I think Finbar should have def got a McKenna cup trial at one point..excellent man to man marker which Tyrone weren't blessed with at one point.  McKernan now is great option for that role.
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

McQuaid a quality operator and definitely worthy of a shot over the past 6 or 7 seasons. I've been wrong before but I just don't think Kavanagh is anywhere near that standard, an interesting way to look at it would be, if McQuaid (who was not seen as County standard) were to be marking him then I would fancy him to get very little change off him.

Both those players have shown consistent quality in Div 2 over the years. Again had they been playing for a senior team they definitely would have merited a trial/McKenna cup campaign. I could make the same argument for majority of intermediate teams, with their top 2/3 players being there or thereabouts. But that path is closed for too many adult footballers in Tyrone. It is just a lazy recruitment/development policy imo.

I think the idea of a Junior intercounty team would be brilliant but something tells me the purse would be firmly closed on that one.

Yes best days are over him but to bring a man like this into a young Lough team is massive, experience and guidance from him and attitude is second to none
As for how they will benefit off the field?
Firstly im sure Leos children will now play for Loughmarory?
Secondly the work and history that the Mennagh family have brought to KC for years with the running of the club/coaching of youngsters/fund raising, there one of those familys that every club has and you need etc etc etc
This now id imagine is gone and buried with KC and Loughmacrory will now benefit from this!!

Is this all to do with the mess from last year that was mentioned on twitter?

Augher, Clogher, Fivemiletown. I'm prepared to offer them to Fermanagh or Monaghan. Nothing beyond the Ballygawley roundabout.
