Are there any Aghagallon lads coming through the senior county team? They are one of the upcoming club teams....

3 featured in McKenna Cup, Pat Brannigan, Ruairi McCann and Eunan Walsh.

Think Ruairi Mc Cann is from Creggan......?

Why not ask your club secretary? They’ll have more info on this than most of the posters on here I’d say

Yeah they will probably just keep it all a secret from the public, only letting the club secretary’s know. No reason to publicise  ::)

Made the trip over to Jtown last night to watch the seniors in a friendly v jtown. Jtown weren't far off full strength with McHugh Karl McK lee Brennan mckinless and a few other notable county players all featuring. However after what I seen last night it might be a long year in division 4. This is what I took from the game:

1. A few players are not upto the standard not naming names but a few players from aghagallon and Ballymena.

2. James Smith from St bridgets was excellent chipping in with 1.4/5 from play and that's with playing a tough ulster match yesterday - we will need him this year.

3. Ricky  J needs to be the county full back

4. Paddy Nugent needs to be number 1

5. We are really struggling at midfield and I feel in a few weeks time Chrissy McK and Bradley could dominate us.

6. Despite setting up defensively still leaked goals and let Jtown walk through the defence. I have no issue with setting up defensively however when attacking antrim did not commit enough players to the attack still holding 2/3 spare men in defence.

Take a chance we cant get relegated from division 4!!
