Was at our game last night v Davitts. Ended up a comfortable win for them.

it shows that when they all train and play together regularly we have a very good side. Seaan Elliott was fantastic as was Keelan molloy.

Sets up a good game on Sunday against Moneyglass tho it isnt a do or die game on the result. Glenravel got another good win to keep them two wins from two as well. Sets the group up well now.
hurl like f**k boi!

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.
Rossa actually beat them. Only the Johnnies’ umpire couldn’t resist a bit of cheating  ;D. Appeared to be one of our referees too!

Is he still a ref?
When I said “our” I meant Antrim’s. The Rossa man used to be a ref too but the Johnnies man is still a ref I think?

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.
Stewards at Ahoghill and Cargin have a lot to answer for if you've been to both grounds involving different clubs. You're allowed one club's ticket to see only that club.

He’s maybe bought tickets for each club or maybe he’s a journo?

Not complicated, the brother in law had the ticket for the Cargin game and couldn’t go, offered it to me 🤷‍♂️

Are there rules around this?

What are stewards supposed to do especially if you're an away fan who they don't know? Do they check id? (That is if there are rules in the first place...)

If you're not checking symptoms / whether a person should be isolating for people who bought a ticket then why should you be checking it on people who's name isn't on the ticket? I don't know the answer here but I'm not sure the problem?

You've been to two different grounds on two different tickets. Sure what about home and away games for your own team? That's two different grounds.

I think a problem has been brought up where there isn't one perhaps...

The 'home' clubs have no responsibility to 'away' supporters. All supporters are advised to wear a mask and bring hand sanitiser. The season ticket is the method used by each club to track and trace in the event of a covid alert. Each club should have a list of ticket holders, match day panels and club officials.

So you’re not a Cargin man?

Actually a ‘blow in’ with an unhealthy interest in the Gaa and go to lots and lots of games watching many teams both in Antrim Derry Down Tyrone and Armagh. As you’ve gather the wife and in laws etc from Carlin so would support them, but not exclusively.

The approach in controlling the numbers attending games is sound, as it ensures social distancing, therefore who attends is irrelevant as long as social distancing is respected. But in fact it is at odds with the amount of people who now attend bars, restaurants etc where social distancing under the influence is a fairy tale. Don’t mention going into shops without masks🤷‍♂️
See Derry Gaa advertising more tickets for club championship games due to increased attendance based on individual ground risk assessments.

I thought you said you supported Creggan DK  ;)

Next thing you’ll be saying your a cargin blow in from bellaghy  ;D

Went to the Creggan Portglenone match on Wednesday night. We never really looked in trouble even when they got the goal. Couldn’t believe how far off last years standard PG1 were. Looked like a team with no confidence and no idea how to create chances from play. We played ok but Marty J, 2 conor McCann’s and conor small didn’t start.

On to Ahoghill at home on Sunday. After their result against PG1 we won’t be taking them lightly that’s for sure

I don’t think the round robin would work as well if there had been a full league to be honest. However for this year it is a great job yes.

It’d be rough on the dual clubs. Last year’s championship fixtures were a struggle to fit in without extra games.
