That's a strong pool for starters. Spoke briefly to Lenny yesterday and the vibes are very good, a very committed man.

They finished bottom half of Div 2 last season, those players are likely the better ones.

not really - you have a choice in DIV 2 of championships, most play in Intermediate, some opt for Senior, like Glenavy last year
Ballymena played in intermediate
Treble 6 Nations Fantasy Rugby champion 2008, 2011 & 2012

un related and probably should be on the hurling thread but not really a hurling post as such, but are Davitts playing in a Junior B all Ireland championship? and was there a football competition for this level?

Really encouraging panel, perhaps the best in years.  So many new faces.  I'm confident this new panel of hungry players, with the peerless Lenny as manager alongside his formidable backroom staff, will be able to maintain our Div 4 status, perhaps for a couple of years. Very confident. 

CJ for captain anyone - for the icing on the Christmas cake?

Great game of football under our new lights there. Dunloy last year's minor champs beat us by a point and meet Tir Na Nog in the U 21 B final. Decent crowd too for a Tuesday night!

missed the game BS as i was in Dublin at the Ireland match but by all accounts it was a great game of football. our guys were well impressed with the new pitch and flood lighting, all that hard work was worth it.

Its a good bunch of fellas we have and if they stuck at it theres no reason we couldnt win the A in a few years time. we have never won an U21 title at football before so it would be nice to hopefully win the B.
hurl like f**k boi!

It was a great open game DR with plenty of quality players on both sides. Deaghlan Smyth was impressive, could step up to a higher level in the next few years, but there were a few others that could also be said of.

Yea tbh we are well pleased with our new facility. The playing surface is class despite the recent weather. Well worth the few years hard graft put in by members.
