Bartons comments in the Irish News smacks of naivety at best and ignorance at worst. Insulting Mc Ivor's reign with stating that the players didn't or don't work hard enough, flys in the face of Mc Ivor view that Derrys players work as hard as any other county squad, which is based on Mc Ivor's experiences in Donegal and Down, the latter making an All Ireland final. I am sure the more senior players will take his compliment of not working hard enough with a piece of salt :o

On the basis of that interview Barton will be a complete disaster as manager. He comes across as completely clueless and needlessly confrontational.

Is there a Senior Reserve Championship being played this year? I see the Intermediate Reserve Championship Final is coming up, why hasn’t the senior one started yet?

Hardly fair that boys who have trained all year with the senior team still haven’t got a game of championship football come the start of October. Last round of reserve league games where the 5th July, nearly 13 weeks ago.

Yeah I didn't much like the tone of it either.
Reminded me a bit of Cassidy when he got the job (though to be fair, I thought Cassidy would be successful).
Hopefully he can pull it all together though, I wont pass judgement yet because he doesnt have very much to live up to.

It was a very negative interview. Hopefully it is not a sign of how things will turn out. I'd like to see him put a bit of pride back in the Derry jersey but it doesn't augur well to be criticising the players this early in public.

Lenny, any more news on the outcome of the u16 game?

Barton talking dung on the back of Irish news...
Where does he think the players are???
Take the money and run Damien...talking about players being proud and taking pride in where there from and all that crap...
Well if Damien is so proud and all that stuff,then he will be handing in a reduced expences form at the end off the year...
So chance of that!!!!

Will that mean that stud who pranced around the field before games is now back to his day Job of refereeing?

A great servant, tough as old boots and will be badly missed. Some man for one man.  Father time stops for no man

New Derry manager Damian Barton will have to plan without the services of Fergal Doherty after the long-serving midfielder announced his inter-county retirement.

The 33-year-old made his championship debut against Antrim in 2001 and went on to play in the All-Ireland SFC semi-final against Galway that year. He also played in the 2004 All-Ireland semi-final against Kerry and was man of the match when Derry turned the tables on the Kingdom in the 2008 Allianz League final.

Doherty took a break from the inter-county scene for two years before returning in 2013 when he helped the Oak Leafers to an Allianz League Division 2 title. However, due to ongoing injury problems and business commitments, he had now decided to call it a day.

The former Derry captain is expected to continue his club career with Bellaghy, with whom he has won three Derry SFC medals and an Ulster club title.

Paying tribute to Doherty in the Irish News, his former team-mate and manager Damian Cassidy said: “His contribution to Derry football has been significant. It’s not a word that’s used that lightly, but Fergal Doherty does fall into the category of a Derry legend.

“The one thing that, for me, marked Fergal out from so many players in that period was his complete dedication to the job he did. The other bit that really distinguished him was his leadership qualities on the field. A lot of boys will talk a good talk – Fergal wasn’t one for talking idly. When he did talk, he meant every word and you invariably found out that he backed it up.

“It’s unfortunate for Damian [Barton] starting off by losing the leadership qualities that Fergal brings to the table. It’s not a surprise to many people but, nonetheless, those qualities are hard to find. And because they’re hard to find, that means they’re hard to replace.”

As you said, some man for one man. It was obvious to see this year he was carrying some type of knock, but played away. Will be long remembered.
cccc is a true supporter lol

Well done, no doubt that was probably the main aim at the start of the season and Drum aren't a bad footballing side at that level. How do you see the Intermediate final going? Little talk of it on here, is it a foregone conclusion?

A word on Fergal Doherty, a brilliant midfielder and will be sorely missed. One of my favorite ever footballers. The time was probably right for him though and he had nothing left to prove at this stage.

Well done Moneymore, but a sore one on Drum. Had a fine season, only for the anomaly of having Faughanvale in jr they may well have topped the league.

With the Wolfhounds down, unless Gerry Mullan comes out of retirement, Drum will start as strong favourites to go up next year.

Has the junior final date / venue been confirmed does anyone know?
