Rodger you're going to have to sack your informant. Not a chance of those names returning en bloc for the NFL. Take that from me! Although I'd be sure Lenny has indeed touched base with all or most of them at some stage! Then theres the 6 names who supposedly got a message to take part in a trial game - in house match Sunday week ago. The three I checked out didnt hear a dicky bird!

Before that you asserted other nonsense about the PG1 management stepping down.  At this stage I say fair play to you, you are most definitely a serious contender for WUM of the year lol.

BS if i cant put stuff im hearing up on this to seek clarity where else a i going to find these things out?

There are men on here with inside knowledge who can shed light on the things us nobles cant.

As for the PG1 management there was an element of truth within that though it never transpired. Dillon has stayed as hes getting a good rate for the job hes doing. So fair play to him.

Welcome Latharna. Developing Larne is a big ask but not impossible....especially if Gaelfast coaches go in for a few years and light the spark. Maybe start with an under 12 and under 14 team, that would be enough to get started if there were half a dozen mentors capable of looking after this and stepping up to under 16s in a few years. Wouldnt look any further than this to begin with. Good thing about Gaelfast is, they will also coach the coaches, so thats a huge bonus too.
Larne needs help but I see Gaelfast were in Carryduff. Do Carryduff really struggle... seems a strange pick

Is Gaelfast an Antrim initiative? Carryduff is a Down club?

They do at hurling.

Gaelfast is a Belfast initiative supported by both Down and Antrim.

Wonder if Gaelfast will wing its way down the peninsula if it's able to go to Larne?

They did about 10 years ago then didn't field in a lot of underage age groups up until recently.

They seem dependent on the parents of the kids having a GAA background as they've U12's and U14's with a few Portaferry and Lavey natives along the line.
