Well what do we think of Gaelfast so far?
Looks like it is active in the weak areas/clubs Colin Gaels , Ardoyne Pearses , Lower Falls , Larne and staying away from areas with stronger clubs. Thatís the right approach and looks like itís getting stronger all the Times

Be wasting their time promoting football in a hurling only club

Kind of wonder what you are basing this on?
I would have thought the opposite.

Sarsfields, Rossa N Pol etc have teams at all ages and codes,  I think, so they are trying to make more clubs like that rather than go to the strong areas/clubs then you will have more kids playing overall. DO u think they should be in strong areas more?

I would like to fact check that 'at all ages all codes' point there for those three clubs for starters.

Point being you picked three of the biggest clubs who traditionally have under performed in recent years. My point is they should be helping/ advising the stronger clubs but pretty much leaving them as they are and concentrating on the weaker clubs who are struggling. From what I have seen and IMO this has not happened as of yet.

Not knocking their work because it is going to be a slow process which will take years, just merely looking at what I have seen to date.

Matthew Fitzpatrick & Ryan Murray not on this years panel is a big blow to Antrim.

Would have been good if you had got them on the panel along with Cunningham and Thomas McCann

could be another long year in div 4

Hopefully Ryan will be available to join up with panel after Christmas. To be fair Lenny did well to get a few years from Matt Fitz...soccer was always his first love....but who knows maybe he too could rejoin the panel for the championship when the soccer dies down.

Still enough quality in the panel to be optimistic we can get promotion this year. A bit of positivity all round this year would be a big help. #LetsgetbehindLenny

They are sponsoring the development squads

Prices are ridiculous but thatís hardly Antrimís fault

Where does anybody who wants to play football in Larne go then? Maybe Gaelfast could help establish a dual club

Cushendall have a football club close to them though.

Carnlough did used to have a football team I think.
