The selection of no experienced players onto the panel does not make sense, We all know who they are, and like Derry managers in the past their ignorance not to pick the best players to prove some imaginary discipline line in their head,  Cassidy - P Bradley, Brennan - F Doherty,  McIvor - E bradley, Barton - E & E Bradley,  now the current manager with Danny H and Bell, why cant we try to get all the best players in Derry on the field for a championship year. Derry managers just set themselves up for a hard fall.

Looks like it was a hard fought victory today but at least we have a couple of points on the board now at long last.

We mixed the good with the not so good. Emmet Bradley harnessed his inner Tohill in the 1st qtr with a quick 1-02. McGrogan had a fine game. Lynn must have ran a marathon in very heavy conditions.  Decent enough fair with some good scores, Tallons thunderous point probably the pick. A much needed 2 points

Who is Aaron Bradley? I've never heard of him before-Has he been called up recently?

Heís full back from our minor team last year. Heís a very good player he would have been a guaranteed starter for the minors last year only he did his cruciate and was only coming back around the time Derry got past Ulster I think so opted not to join the panel.

Hopefully he gets 10/15 minutes here or there it will be great experience for him.
Out of interest, has he started for Screen seniors yet?

I donít think so but not totally sure.

Well, he made his Derry senior debut today, albeit very briefly!

Iím pretty sure he lined out for an Ulster League match a couple of weeks ago.

The surface in Celtic park is no longer the best in Derry. It resembled a bog in places yesterday. A fine total of 570 paid in,570. When are we going to learn. On a positive note at least we won. A fine start and a good finish but we were poor in between. But I could see signs of improvement

Interesting comment. . . which pitch in Derry do you think would have been better than Celtic Park yesterday?

Any highlights I saw of matches over the weekend the pitches were all bogs all over the place!

Supposedly,there was a school game played on Celtic park on the Saturday and then they played the Hurling before the Derry v Offaly game. That was silly at best. The pitch surface was terrible. My point is and always will be,if the pitch in Celtic park is like it was yesterday then why take the matches there as no-one wants to travel. Derry,as a team would gain an advantage by playing in frount of a bigger crowd at a South Derry venue. 570 people attended that Double header yesterday,that number is pathetic. And it isn't going to change for the foreseeable future whilst the matches are played at Celtic park.

The matches are going to be at Celtic Park for the foreseeable future though. Maybe it's the attitude of the South Derry 'supporters' that needs to change?

The Athletics Ground would be considered a good pitch and it didn't look great on Saturday evening.

In terms of best surface - magilligans pitch is in brilliant shape all year round and is up there in terms of best pitches in the county

If my memory serves me right it is a good pitch,but the bump in the middle of the pitch reminds me of the time my wife was pregnant with our daughter. Good option though.
