Swatragh should win the u21 easy enough.

Easy enough? Who else are contenders...

Lavey, Ballinascreen. Kilrea/Dungiven had a good rivalry at this age group.

I would have said bellaghy too, earlier in the year, due to their recent ulster minor win but Screen managed a 1 point win over them.

What about Glen or Magherafelt - have they not very young teams with a number of U21’s starting on each team in county final.

Rossa have conceded due to their Ulster club game. I would imagine Glen are not as strong as the majority of their 4 in a row lads (2011-2014) would be overage.

Another success for Magherafelt tonight. Some good football on display from both sides despite the conditions. I'd say a few of these lads be on County duty next year for the Doire U.17's.

There was a couple on the Derry U17 team this year that would have played last night. I know it's underage and anything can happen but Derry should have a strong U17 side next year. They won their respective U15 and U16 Ulster competitions.

At the Minute,Derry underage is probably at its strongest in a long long time. Its very competitive also,which will surely make us 1 of the main contenders for Ulster this year. A great chance for Boyle,who I'm hearing has never been a manager of a team so far in his career as he has only been in backroom teams.

Did Mickey not manage St Pauls Kilrea to U-16 All-Ireland Vocational Schools title?

John Mc Keever to Wolfe Tones?  Last I heard there were two or three big clubs talking to him PJ but it looks like he couldnt resist the challenge to bring the youth through at Bellaghy and turn them into credible challengers once again.
it'll be a long time before Bellaghy compete again. They have more chance of getting relegated in the next few years. They even lost to Draperstown in the u21s last night.

What does tonight’s result say about your lads braveheart??

Was just thinking that myself. He seems to think Bellaghy are in bother, yet his beloved Swatragh seem to keep getting beat by same teams in cship. A lot of his posts have a dig at Bellaghy. He was very quiet after their cship defeat. Maybe they will stick to hurling now.
Well done to screen.

We always looked in control until a late penalty gave Screen the impetus to win it. In fact other than from frees I can't remember screen scoring from play. It just goes to prove,that the best team doesn't always win. A very good crowd at it for a Baltic night,most of whom came from the Swa'.

I’d be fairly sure there wasn’t much in the scores from play count you scored plenty of frees yourselves. The turning point for me was McAtamney opting to hit a free short that he could easily have scored then losing the ball and Screen going up the pitch and getting 1-1 straight from it. When they had to dig deep they couldn’t and lost their discipline towards the end of the match.

I would say the better team beat a team of individuals!

Fair play to our lads they dug deep and found a way to win it was a good performance especially the second half.

Another big match against Dungiven next I thought this was the side that won the Minor championship so beating Swatragh and Bellaghy would have us in pole position but I think we’ll still be underdogs given the other teams left and how they did at minor.

From memory SE Kilrea beat Dungiven in the minor final 3 years ago. Dungiven i think won the corresponding u16 championship

Correct. Dungiven won Feile and Kilrea won u14 cship too.
Both teams contested all 4 finals from u14 to u18.

Will it ever end
