Who's Stephen Quinn?

S&C ?/ Coach, involved with Tyrone football

Used to coach for the Tyrone Co. Board, then the Ulster Council and is now a primary school teacher in Armagh somewhere. Definitely donít think heís a S&C coach though. Been with McGinley in Swatragh this past few years. Errigal man too. Decent coach from what Iíve heard of him.

As high profile as that management team sounds I donít think many/any of them have tasted much success with any of the teams theyíve coached/managed so far. Seems as though a high profile from your playing days is enough to get big jobs regardless of your management/coaching cv.



There in good company then, neither have we sideline!!! Sean Kelly a master stroke, absolute gent and what a player, would have made any county team in the land.

County board must be broke. Don't know how Mcginley got appointed over Mcentee when you look at the gulf in class regarding their CVs, at least Mcentee has a credible CV. Taking the cheap option the only explanation.
Maybe the county board should use some of the hurling money..

Iím surprised that Antrim went for McGinley/OíNeill over Madden/McEntee. Enda and Stevie could go in and do a fantastic job with Antrim and from what I hear Stevie seems to be pretty decent, but if you look at it, none of the top teams would take a punt on management with 3 years club management between them. Granted, Antrim arenít one of the top teams, but why should they not approach their management choices in the same way?

I suppose time will tell with this one. Good luck to them. If they do well we can thank you for preparing them for their homecoming a few years down the line.

The only way is up. But we need a under 17 team thatís actually starting to do strength and conditioning now, they need to be developing their game and challenging Ulster counties, they need to be progressing through the ranks and encouraged by club and county.

Sometime we look like we have zero ambition when there is in house bitching between clubs and managers. We are not in a position for our best players not committing. If they arenít the questions should be asked, what would bring you to the set up...
