Aidan McLaughlin as part of a backroom team is hardly an issue. Did anyone have an issue with Gavin McGeehan being involved with last years team? (someone who had a similar coaching role with either Ulster or Derry GAA as far as I know).

Anyone who has seen any of Campbell's teams play before could not be surprised there was no score in their last game until 27 minutes in. It's an absolute joke that he was appointed by our county board to develop our underage players.

I see no problem with someone like Aidy being involved in a fairly minor role in the set up, maybe gathering a bit of experience as he goes. I would though question letting a man who played ultra defensive/negative football at his last 4 jobs (Steelstown, Castledawson, Glentes and Slaughtmanus) with little or no success manage our best underage players.

Cant understand why Campbell was appointed either ....

The other fellas are good coaches with Fabian and Ronan also having had Club management experience.   Aidy McLaughlin (he is from Craigbane isn't he ?) was a very good player and was on  the County Senior panel around about 2010, was unfortunate with injuries and was working away from home a lot.  Good honest committed Clubman and still youngish

The question isnít why was he appointed? Itís who was he appointed ahead of? Was there a queue of high quality applicants? There should be a good team there but Monaghan look to have an outstanding team given they stuffed both tyrone and donegal on the way to the ulster minor league.


Did a bit of asking, he works with the Goalkeepers, so I assume he isnt involved with the tactical side of things.

Ah now I see where the senior team gets it from - goalkeepers don't do tactics. Explains a lot!!

Aidan McLaughlin (not Aidy) is Claudy's goalkeeper and has been for the last 10 years or so. Think he was on the Derry minor panel that was beat in the AI final if memory serves me rightly though he didn't start. He's not a bad keeper himself and by all accounts is a decent coach. Wouldn't be too harsh on him working with the minor keepers.
As stated previously I'd have a much bigger issue with Campbell being appointed manager, ultra defensive and discouraged kicking the ball at the previous clubs he worked with. Not sure if he actually had any success with those clubs?

Early days yet in the leagues but Coleraine, Glen and Lavey going unbeaten so far will have to be happy. Great starts too from Newbridge and Glenullin. Claudy and Kilrea will already be starting to worry on 0 points given it's the bottom 4 going down. 6 clubs on 2 points after 3 games - this is the interesting area for me over the next few weeks.

Banagher look like they should walk Div2 and will give 5th from bottom in Div1 their fill of it in a playoff.

Limavady look really strong in Div3 with maybe only Moneymore fit to give them a game.
