Well until you let us know a few details about yourself, Iím more than happy to join him in painting you as a bitter alcoholic.

Allís fair in absolute anonymity.

What are you on about? Your opinion on allowing teams to train is obscene. How can seriously say it is ok to train, no matter what the numbers are? Your club totally ignored the rules in lockdown 1 and your community paid for it, I take it none of your family died because of it. Don't come on here and be the big I am, seriously catch yourself on.

Iím quoting this one Lotto, for the reason that when you read this back to yourself when sober, you might regret it and try to delete.

Itís probably best you you remain anonymous. Thereís a lot of people I know would take very serious umbrage with you for what youíve just written. Youíve connected Ballyholland Harps GAC to deaths in the community.

Your attempts to demean me aren't working. I seriously hope that none of the deaths in your community came about by the transmission between your players that flagrantly disobeyed both GAA and NI Gov rules, I can't answer that. You and your Senior team know what you did so don't put it back on me for highlighting it here or last year either.

Lotto what are you talking about man?
You say none of these have any experience at this level
Cunningham Burren minors for years
Morgan successful Carryduff minor and 21
Dougherty successful Carryduff
Ambrose involved under James


Still I thought the board would have went for Mickey Walsh and Mickey linden or Ross Carr and Thornton

The above went for both the under 20 job and the minors so itís a big blow for both and canít see either being back managing again at this level for a while


I wish the new management team all the best

And lotto wise up with that ridiculous statement about Ballyholland

Quite a large minor management team, hopefully that brings plenty of ideas and knowledge of the available players to the table. However I'd hope it wouldn't mean a clash in terms of ideas/playing styles etc. Is there an indication on who would have the ultimate say on these things or who has the "lead role" as such? Hopefully see an upturn in fortunes and wish the management and team the best for whenever they can get back at it.

You would assume the lead role would be the Manager.

Thanks for that mature and insightful reply. Apologies, I had only seen a list of names of the management team at that stage and not the article naming Cunningham the manager.

I have seen a few similar comments about a large management team, is it really for an intercounty set up?
Manager
Selectors
Outfield Coaches
Goalkeeper Coach
S&C Coach

No bigger than a couple of Division one club set ups. There were a few good set ups in for this job, good to see that good people are interested in the minor job. Good luck to the men who got the post wish them every success

Itís not an adult inter county set up.

Itís an u17 squad. In a normal season, the gap between schools players being made fully available, and the Ulster Championship, is at best a couple of months, and is balanced a little against exam commitments.

The first month is spent whittling down a trial squad into a final squad, through in-house matches, friendly matches, and various tests for fitness etc. The second month is spent trying to mould a team into a structure, around those players available. But a lot of that is trialling how players react in positions.

What Iím getting at there is that the season could be over before any serious coaching is done. Or more pertinently, that thereís not enough coaching commitments to overload a couple of men.

As mentioned when the u20 management was announced, why on earth any manager would want 7-10 voices during the trials and whittling down stage is beyond me. They must love meetings.

Too much emphasis placed on colleges level football. How can players make a county minor setup when they are getting slogged at schools level and then maybe number 27-35 on the panel but are not allowed to go to minor trials. Then when school football ends in jan (Abbey) or feb/match (College) the lads are fit but their game play is so poor they canít make the squad. There needs to be a better system put in place where the school teachers donít put pressure on lads not to trial for their county but they canít get on school team. Teachers donít own the players after all.
