Fantastic result for Newry Shamrocks. Hope they can push on and win the final.

See young McGovern from Ballyholland signed new contract with Newry City. Hopefully that doesnt stop him playing football with Down in few years, looked some prospect anytime Ive seen him play.

talk about a club going backwards!! Years of poaching players from other clubs and indeed other countys taking its toal now, no underage structure at all, then you have the finn club up and running again ,which takes up a few players that represented town in most codes from underage to seniors, it's a pity tho 😁once a big club with ambition to the slums of div 2 and maybe div 3 after next season! Half of them don't know if they're from the finn or castlewellan or who to support ! 🙈

You did say the contract is with Newry City and not Real Madrid?  Wise up FFS

Very complementary for the lower division teams. But your right, it's a serious fall for them.

Why? Surely likes of John Boyle  would have played more seasons with Down only for his soccer career.

You reap what you so, but they were very poor the other night

If their own club doesn't field in the competition , the player is able to get a sanction to play elsewhere . Max.no. allowed is 5 afaik

Surely itís fairer than the only way you can play in an u20 competition is to be from a big club.

Yes.... Smither too only played a few National,league games for Down because of his soccer career definitely would have had a big County career only for the soccer

Yes so many Gaelic careers being spoilt by backward managers.Let's hope John McGovern is facilitated to do both.He is too good a player to miss out on ,County Minor captain and potential attack leader on Senior County side.
Potentially if James is involved with seniors again soon he will work with him.James understands from his own experience in Irish League football and knows it can be done.You're right on about Smither but with Darren at Newry he'll work well for Harps and John.From talking to a few Harps men on a trip recently all are delighted for him.
Surprise victory though the other day for Shamrocks v Harps in U21s but the East South gap was highlighted in Burren v Castlewellan game , Castlewellan didn't even score !I know Burren are a special side but to hold a team scoreless is some feat.More silverware going to Burren in this competition.
