Enda Lynn is a big miss to the panel.

He was the longest serving member of the panel and still a key player.

What happened?

Did he retire or a falling out?

Definitely was a good player who served Derry very well


Seems to have been a falling out with Gallagher. Disappointing news

Maybe he was simply omitted by Gallagher. This happens to all players eventually.  It’s part of the evolution of any panel. Wouldn’t be a fan of his playing style but Gallagher has been good at introducing younger players and seems to have eradicated the revolving door issue that was a real hindrance in previous squads.

Nope - there was a fall out.

He started centre forward just over 5 weeks ago vs Armagh in the championship. You don't go from being a main player to not making a 30-40 man training panel in the space of a month.

You’re probably right, Gallagher told Lynn he was no longer in his plans then they fell out. Is that how it went?

Apparently a fall out at training that escalated

With the outlook  for the resumption of Senior inter county training beginning to look bleaker by the minute, Derry management and players can be reasonably happy with their  progress after an improved performance in the Ulster Championship encounter against Armagh.

The high count rate of so many basic errors while in possession and some wayward shooting from bad positions were two of the main factors for that narrow defeat. However, with a greater level of determination and total focus on the task in hand throughout  a  whole game, these basic errors can readily be eliminated.

This should lead to  more consistent high quality  performances and hence better results. If management knows who their best eleven players are that means all the other panellists are fighting for four starting berths and  five possible substitutes being introduced during any given game. This keen level of competition for places can only raise standards provided all players remain fully fit and available.

Allowing for the fact that Ethan Doherty will be required for the U20 team at the start of the League campaign and that Karl McKaigue  will not be fully fit until April or May  and that Enda Lynn is no longer on the panel I would select the following team to begin the 2021 National League.

                                                       Odhran Lynch
 Paul McNeill                                     Brendan Rogers                             Padraig McGrogan
 Conor McCluskey                              Chris McKaigue                              Michael McEvoy
                                   Ciaran McFaul                    Conor Glass
 Jack    Doherty                                  Emmett Bradley                            Padraig  Cassidy
 Niall    Toner                                      Shane McGuigan                           Niall Loughlin

Substitues: Connlan Bradley Carlus McWilliams  Conor Doherty  Shea Downey Gavin O'Neill
                 Patrick Kearney   Benny Heron         Oisin  McWilliams   Danny Tallon
                 Ben McCarron      Paul Cassidy

Good to see that Derry Minors beat Armagh by two points in this afternoon's game at Celtic park on a score line of 1-7 to 0-8

If he is anything to Kevin, it could be!! Seriously though, probably a sound enough appointment.  Swatragh, you would think, not that far away from mounting a serious championship challenge - with plenty of local encouragement, of course!

Swatragh have a fair few handy footballers at the minute. The 3 Kearney brothers, 2 McWilliams, McAtamney's however I feel they are very light on defenders. A strong front 8.

Am I right in thinking there is now a 4th younger brother on the scene now? and another handy player he is.  On paper they definitely have the makings of a team that can challenge.

Sorry yeah forgot about the 4th, another cracking player who had a good championship last year.

As I say, a lot of talent from midfield up but I think they are short in defence to give the senior championship a real push.
