the creggan goalkeeper oisin kerr I think that's his name is a strong goal keeper also defiantly upto that standard, Nugent should be number 1 IMO with young Hasson competing

Happy new year.
Have only seen two really one sided matches so for this year, both rubbish, and it was more expensive to watch club minors playing than it was a senior county game !

Ps. There's more than a keeper Antrim need.

That was a good bit better tonight. Marty Johnston and Ryan Murray both made a good difference, and new boys Eoin Mc Keown Eoghan Mc Cabe Patrick Finnegan and Fergal Burke all showed up well too.

Tackling much better and only one sweeper instead of two freed us up a bit more going forward. We've a couple of huge games coming up and some really hard work going on behind the scenes, so let's get behind the team and management and see how that goes.

I was at the Armagh game on Sunday, so amazed to hear this result tonight. Must've been like chalk and cheese. You'd have thought St Mary's would be going ok at this stage.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

I meant to say Fintan Burke.... quite impressed with him tbh! The Ranch wouldn't have the same big names as last year which makes their draw with Monaghan at the weekend all the more impressive.

Lenny still has a few St Endas lads to call on, plus possible first choice midfielders Conor Murray and Stephen Beattie who are on injured list, so I'm still optimistic that we will be competitive in our division.

Bannside, in fairness, you have to be the most optimistic supporter I have ever come across.

St marys were poor. Offered little.

Two tough games to start. If we lose both our year is already effectively over. Bar maybe a win or two in the qualifiers.

Oisin is the best Keeper in Antrim without a shadow of a doubt. Was on the county panel a few years ago and was sub to Kerr. Has a young family now canít see him committing to Antrim

They have two fellas up at it who were u21 this year, both players looked average in the u21 championship and were non existent come the knock out stage so I don't know how Lenny can justify a call up
