Are u saying the county didn't turn up for Cargin b cos Cargin don't turn up for the county..... :o

Im.just wondering why they didnt show up for their 2nd biggest football competition trophy award.   Any reason other than 'it was stolen on the way to the match' is unacceptable

That's the Div 1 league as good as over with Cargin winners after the most competitive league in memory. Top four positions sorted for next years cship seeding too...the scene is set now for a memorable championship. Can South West consolidate its position as the new power base, or can Galls Johnnies or LD....or indeed improving Rossa put a spanner in those works? Should be an interesting couple of months.

I see mick Mccann kicking off on Twitter and a few boys who have played county chiming in too. Doesnít look good for the county. Very strange how this happened.

This is a sickener for the players and I saw it happen to my own club a few years ago as well at underage.  We had to hand them a trophy off a shelf from our club room to save face.  Is it silence so far from the County?  An explanation or apology is necessary and pretty quickly- maybe there was a genuine reason so letís see what they say.  The old ways need to change, otherwise weíll be bottom of the pile for plenty more years to come.

They are quick enough to fine clubs for not returning trophies  every March .

All down the years, it was always "oh, sure, leagues don't matter".

no they have replied that it was organised to be presented at the official opening of Cargin's clubrooms which was to be tomorrow but it was postponed so the presentation has been postponed until that happens.

(Edit) although creggan could have won the league last night too I believe?? That would have been a mess.

The person managing the Cargin Twitter account didnít seem to know that.  Makes you wonder.

Creggan must be delighted with the crystal ball reading Antrim did, predicting they wouldnt win the league.

Would have been very long odds for Creggan to win by double figures last night

Worse than the odds that one of the two teams on the pitch would be the winner of the league?
