Yes definitely JS. I think there's good progress being made to be fair. Fitness levels definitely better too. Management starting to find their feet.

By you not getting out?? Not really based on posts  ;)

(I donít know much about Paul Donnelly tbh. It wouldnít bother me in the slightest he is away to down. Only thing I would say is I hope he isnít as good as their last manager / coach and Antrim can finally get one over on them  ;D)

Only a friendly,  but Antrim had an easy win over Sligo today.....finished well clear of the Yeats county men.

Did big Pat play, came off with an injury last week in Portglenone.

Yep, Pat started on the bench but had a good second half.

Mc Ginley employed his bench to the full again and looked strong all over.

Tougher tests to follow, but the Saffrons look fit and ready to make their mark....

On a different note, anyone know if BBC Radio Uladh will be broadcasting National League games? Always unsatisfactory that they were relegated to MW rather than FM for other sports - but now the station doesn't seem to be broadcast on MW at all any longer. Will we have to rely on RTE for coverage?

The key to the Fermanagh game could be if Derrygonnelly lads are playing. I'd say like ourselves the league is the only competition of importance this year for Fermanagh, should be a good game.

Will be very interesting to see the team that lines out, and where management now see the pecking order. Have any of the newcomers done enough to break their way into a starting berth? Looking forward to heading down on Saturday night. Two early league points definitely there for the taking if we put our best foot forward.

If Eunan Walsh Declan Lynch Patrick Mc Aleer and Marty Johnston are all fit for selection the competition for a jersey on that half back line is serious. That's the way you want it though!

I haven't just managed to get my head around the Adam Loughran situation  and the reason he is not in the squad. 100% one of the best forwards in the county, I see he played for UCD last night.

County cannot be dispensing with talent like that without a good reason...imo anyway!

Why is Adam out of squad Bannside?
