I do not know which way Derry delegates voted at today's Special Congress re the introduction of the new Tier Championship.As I forecast, in a previous post a few weeks ago, the new proposal came out on top by gaining over a 75 per cent approval rating.

The Tipperary motion which proposed  that the League standings at the end of the 2020 League should be the determining factor in deciding which teams played in Tier Two next season was also passed with an even bigger majority.

So from a Derry perspective.   if they  are promoted to Division Two next March, it means that they will be able to participate further in  the Qualifiers for the All Ireland as at present.

Thus this is a mighty incentive for players,management and County Board to ensure that all of our best players are available for the whole League..There can be no excuses from any of these stakeholders now. If we have all of our best players available we will have an excellent chance of promotion.Doire Abu

Big incentive but also for Down and Cork. The provincial final stipulation places Ulster teams at a big disadvantage and there must be no seeding in other provinces.

In the meantime, would be nice to see Glen win a first tomorrow, a great GAA club.

Looked like Glen could have scored from that attack when the whistle was blown.

I am not surprised at today's result. The club who never won it before,lost. Magherafelt deserved the victory because they were the better team on the day and that is all they needed to do. Unfortunately, Glen on the other hand had it won during the week and did too much talking.

Wasnít at it but heard Tallon was told his free was last kick and he decided to go short??

Definitely the whistle was blown before the shot was taken you can see Magherafelt players celebrating just as the last man got the ball.

Not surprised all programmes were gone, not many would have anticipated a crowd of over 9 and half k

That was hard luck on Danny Tallon and Glen if he wasn't aware he had to score !!!

Magherafelt deserved to win.  They were the better team and Glen couldn't close that 3 point gap until injury time.

Magherafelt were cute in that they went down at every opportunity in 2nd half to kill the game.  In injury time, they were even worse.  Ref should have allowed more time in injury time for that.

Wasnít a free kick. It was open play. To blow the whistle just as the man was kicking the ball was a crazy decision. Glen should rightly feel robbed. Overall on the day Magherafelt were the better team but Glen should have stole the draw at the end. Donít think there would have been any objections from Magherafelt.

After first quarter, Mfelt controlled the game. Should have won by about 7 points, missed a penalty plus easy free. For John Joe to blow time when he did, with Glen in a possible scoring position, was against the spirit of any Gaelic match never mind a final. Poor decision. Mind you, some of Glenís shot selections were just as poor.
