Fear Boirche- are you the gael in disguise? My bitter and twisted detector is twitching.Bredagh are  a proud County Down club doing a great job with no pitch and arseholes like the hedgehog to contend with. I'm a fear boirche myself and we need every club and player we can get at the moment. Wonder where Ross and DJ will be tomorrow ?

Would East Down Gael catch a grip of himself and stop annoying people on the Dundrum guestbook. What I say is my opinion and not a chip on my shoulder. Jaysus Christ, will ya just get over it.You MUST have something more important to do.

Thought this might have been a better game with so much at stake.  Liatroim were really up for it and this was evident from the first 5 minutes.  Young Brannigan had a bagful of chances for Bryansford but failed to take any of them.  Peter Travers kept them in the game with a number of crucial saves (hope he gets another go with the county as he is one of the most consistent keepers about).  Alot of added time played but Bryansford still couldn't get the vital scores.  Good win for Liatroim who will probably stay up if they keep playing like this.

The Bridge were a disgrace today. Apart from Gavin Barry , none looked interested . I'm not from the Bridge but they let down their parish and thier county .Should have gone to see Drumgath- I hear they put up a good fight.Well done to Bredagh - our last one standing in football or hurling.

The Mayobridge result was a pretty grim indication of the task facing Ross Carr as our new county manager. The Bridge have been the best team in Down for the last six or seven years and about half their players have featured at county level during that period. In managing a single point in the course of an entire match today,they probably produced the worst performance by a team from Down or possibly anywhere else in the history of the Ulster club championship. Ross is going to have to find quite a few new faces who are physically strong enough to play county football.

The only good news for Down football today was Bredagh's display in hammering Drum from Derry in the junior club championship. Drum looked very poor, but for Bredagh to score 5-13 on a heavy pitch was still quite an achievement.  Contrary to some suggestions on this board, Bredagh do have some decent home-grown young players. However, they are more likely to make an impact at u21 than senior level. Bredagh also won the u16 B hurling championship today, beating Carryduff in the final, so the club is in reasonable shape in both codes.

Mourne Rover

totally agree about Bredagh, the youth policy will start paying dividends in the near future for both codes, we need to consolidate our division three status next season and take it from there. Our five goals were scored by home grown talent and 3 of the 5 subs used were minors.

also well done to the U16s who beat Carryduff in the u16 B Hurling championship.

I take it that means Darragh Cross and Banbridge are promoted?

Interesting that Down's only success at Ulster club level this year were Bredagh-the only club not involved in league playoffs.Drumgath outstanding in Down IFC,must have been demotivated by their playoff defeats going into yesterday's encounter.The fact that  playoffs will continue to late November,with McKenna cup starting in January hardly helps burnout risk ,in players like Liam Doyle.Annaclone,Ballyholland etc.,have consistently proved that they're worthy of playing in the higher echelons,but how can they develop as a club ,if their seasons ultimately depend on playoffs every November.Championship is almost relegated to second place competition,in many quarters.Surely,these facts need to be examined by the county board,to optimise club development,revitalise our championships,and to give Ross his strongest hand.Any thoughts?
