Will Big Marty J feature for Kickams this year ?
no idea but any thoughts on why Creggan don't seem to reproduce their league form in the championship? too much emphasis on league maybe?
That would be right could be cargin ever game in the league, but bottle it come the championship always seem to run out of gas- to many sessions from madden maybe £?

Id say the paid manager is a big part of it as he has  to justify his pay week in week out. Creggan must have paid some money on managers in the last 10 years. Putting it into their juveniles would be a better spend

Creggan are an excellent club and do very well for the pick that they have. It must be one of the smallest catchment areas in Antrim? They surely have a money man behind them but they always seem to be running very successful fundraisers.

Good club, well run, lots of community items and fundraisers and the locals get behind them.  Expanded their catchment area 15 years ago with an ambitious youth recruitment policy much to the angst of Cargin and Tir Na Nog - made them buck up their ideas and they responded so Creggan are seeing the benefits coming through now though it may be only short term.  They've put a lot of money into the club, management, grounds etc for a good few years now. Great setup, whether that translates into a championship is another question. Thought that raft of underage  titles a few years ago would have reaped a championship by now and have made their way through a succession of well compensated managers

I have indeed and impressive set up just debating why with all their resources they don’t look any closer to a senior championship. Maybe one of their own could motivate their senior team better after ten years of hired hands...

Friday, Wed and another Friday?

Would you prefer them match and two hard training sessions and then another match? Some people are hard too please! Players prefer games to training? If you’d played a bit, you’d agree  ;)
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Leagues are playing, championships are for winning. Hopefully we don’t become Cargin  ;)

Connor murray out for a long period too won't help. Seems very open this year. Sneaky feeling there may be a wee bit of life left in st galls yet.

Looks like most posters on here think it’s back to st galls and cargin this year yet St. John’s and the lamhs beat them in the championship last year and were the finalists. Are these two teams not getting enough credit for last year?

They played the best championship football, Johnnies should have beaten Cargin in the first game and proved their worth in the second. Johnnies to lose
