Group championship matches set up is completely different to knock out games, preparation and application can be different.

Some work it well, some donít!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Spoke to a few PG1 people today, not one complaint about losing. They said they lost to a far better side on the day.

Ahoghill thoroughly deserved their victory. Brought championship intensity to the game that Casements simply didnt match in the day. No excuses the better team won.

Looking down through championship results last night, can someone explain the point of John Mitchells?  They have played 2 games, scored 1 point and conceded over 90.  That is just a waste of time for everyone involved, the John Mitchells players, the opposition players, all the managers, officials and anyone who bothers to show up to watch.  This has been going on for years and years when you look back through it.  I do believe they maybe play in another more casual league if you like but they seem to enter the Junior championship every year and take a complete pasting.

They don't seem to be in the league this year. I have played against them a few times over the years and there tend to be boys who end up playing who can't even hand to toe the ball. They just struggle to get numbers I think but want to keep the GAA club going there.

Some interesting results last night. Rossa drawing with St Johns a standout one. I thought Creggan might snatch that game too. Cargin looked to struggle a bit with Aghagallon. The usual suspects do look the teams to beat though. I would still imagine cargin are favourites. Intermediate looks interesting. Looks like dunloy, moneyglass, ballymena and st pauls the four front runners for now. Didn't expect Laochra Loch Lao to beat st malachys but the rest of the junior went as expected to. Pearses might be one to watch too.

I think Mitchells play in the South Antrim league, where they are a little more competitive.  Curious about the Senior and Intermediate championship, can clubs get relegated from each? Will there definitely be no Ulster championship for any of the Senior, Intermediate or Junior grades?

I don't know how it works tintin.

What stages of knockout do these groups even lead to? I am assuming semi finals so top in every group in senior and top two in intermediate and junior?

Reading reports of Cargin, how come none of the McCann's playing?

Rossa actually beat them. Only the Johnniesí umpire couldnít resist a bit of cheating  ;D. Appeared to be one of our referees too!

Casements beat again. Creggan off the mark. Was tempted to go to the Casements game again, but after watching them at the weekend I couldn't see them winning. Decided to watch Cargin and Aghagallon. Cargin have alot of depth in their panel. The players that weren't playing and then the players who went off for injuries. Well over half their championship winning team off from last season and they still won. Aghagallon lively without having any real forward punch, their keeper has a beautiful kickout, is he on the any county squads? But if they couldn't bt them with so many players missing they never will.
