There was to be 2 teams relegated from the Intermediate league at the start of the year, how come there is only one? 

Did Ballerin not relegate Moneymore in a playoff in early September?






Henry Joys to stay in Intermediate for another season!

Well done to players and management

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?

Fergal Doc in one sentence.  The best Derry player of his generation. He put in some shift for Derry and carried them over the line time after time. Thoroughly earned the status of "Derry legend".

I disagree. My top 3 of his generation would be

Enda Muldoon
Paddy Bradley
Fergal Doherty

Do you have to score 1-2 from midfield to have a "best" game??

Do your own donkey work

when not going through the pain barrier for the cause, ie playing when injured, I cant mind him not having a decent game. You knew what you were getting, and more importantly, the opposition midfielders knew what they were getting. Always gave you a lift seeing his name on the team-sheet, will be badly missed.

There was supposed to be 2 teams relegated but CCC made a mistake when sending out official notification to clubs of how relegation would work in Div2 this season, playoffs etc.  Ballerin V Moneymore playoff was therefore cancelled and Ballerin declared safe.  Moneymore then went on to beat Drum in the only playoff.

Not sure about the administration part of your post but Moneymore did infact play Ballerin in a playoff. Limavady were relegated automatically. Moneymore played Ballerin with the winners safe and the losers (Ballerin won 1-07 to 0-08) to play the 2nd place team in division 3 in a relegation/promotion playoff.

Yeah you are right, my mistake.  Ballerin beat Moneymore, it was originally planned that the loser of that game would be relegated and the winner play Drum in the Playoff, but due to the admin mistake Ballerin were declared safe, Moneymore went into the playoff game with Drum and only 1 team was relegated instead of 2

I would say this is near enough the right number of clubs in each division now anyway. County board are probably scared of messing up the championships again like last year, with Craigbane going straight in to the back door, so are sticking to this years format.

Blow in really? I always got the impression he was highly influential within his club and a real Derry man
