Why where they included in the panel if they were not going to be used? Greatly reduced the possible selection of more playerd ( sorry i fix that, more Under 20)  We gave a fairly poor U-20 team if half them are on the senior panel!!
Fair point.

Derry manager Damian McErlain plans to see out the remainder of their Allianz FL Division 3 campaign minus the services of the Slaughtneil contingent.

Nemo Rangers brought the curtain down on Slaughtneil's All-Ireland Club SFC adventure last Saturday but the Oak Leaf boss is prepared to let vice-captain Brendan Rogers and his five club-mates sit out the final three rounds of the league in a bid to have them fresh for the championship.

"We can't rush them back," he told The Belfast Telegraph.

"We want them coming back and being an addition for us. If you are forcing men back who are just after a long season like that - in fact, they are not after one long season, they are after two long seasons - and two years in a row of that, mentally and physically, there is going to be a toll on them.

"They need to normalise their lives a bit, for a few weeks anyway and see where that takes them. For us, it is more about them."

Rogers is the vice captian and he ain't going to play in three vital games to avoid Division Four, are we having a laugh.

It wouldn't have happened under Eamonn Coleman


It did. Ask Damian Cassidy. 2002

Damien speaks with fork-tongue! And they still lost.  4 introduced, 1 replaced injured. 1 victory in 5 Division 3 games.  Serious stuff.

Just in from Armagh and although Derry lost this was a much improved performance against a good Armagh side. Derry led by 2 at the interval and this was with Armagh scoring a fortunate goal after the ball had come off the post. Great to see the  Slaughneil players back.  It would be wrong to attribute the improved performance to their presence as none of them started and none of them were on during Derry's dominant first half period. Anyway predictions of dire outlook for Derry football are a bit premature as there was plenty to be positive about tonight

Derry deserve to be in Division 4 after their showing this season.

Relegation from Div 1 = understandable
Relegation from Div 2 = questionable
Relegation from Div 3 = inexcusable

Until they have a coherent strategy at county level, they donít deserve our support.

That's encouraging to hear. I was worried we'd get battered. Any players stand out?

What game were you at?  Armagh had 3 goal chances in the second half, all missed. Looks like you missed hem as well.

Yes. How many goal chances did you see Armagh miss in 2nd half?  They could have won by 10. Rodgers getting injured will not help much.
