Some fine scores from both sides here, good advert for Armagh football.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Nearly got my prediction right!!!  An excellent game with both teams playing very good football. Jack Grugan hit some excellent scores in the first half. A couple of the young lads really stepped up today and not the ones youíd expect. I thought Paudie Stuttart and Johnny McKeever our in a great shift.

BCB will tell you that Cross are a young team who have overachieved this year and Coalisland should start favourites  ;D

Personally I would expect a close game. If McGahon plays at full forward he could cause Cross trouble. At the other end who McKernan picks up and how he does could also be key. Hampsey  will need a big game.

It will be interesting to see the free count. Cross have given away very few frees in the championship key games this year. Coalisland on the other hand seem to need frees to keep the scoring board going. I have a feeling referees in Armagh in general are not too whistle happy. Things may change in Ulster.

Jesus you read my mind!!! 

Honestly though a lot will depend on how our lads enjoy this one. It really is a huge achievement for this young team. 6 starters u21 and 2 subs who came on, one being a minor. Probably a year ahead of schedule for them but the success of yesterday can only be a boost. As Aaron said in his after match speech itís hard being a Cross senior if you donít have at least a county medal in your pocket so hopefully this will be the start for a lot of them to build a strong future.

I know very little about Coalisland apart from the Hampsey lads and Donnelly in nets but they beat a fancied Killyclogher team and have been knocking the door for a few seasons. They too may party but from Reports close to the camp it has been heard that an Ulster challenge is in their radar with some of the stronger teams out.  Peter Donnelly is a cute hoor in nets and will have them well ready for the battle. Having home advantage is a small bit of a bonus for us but ironically Coalisland is closer to Armagh than Cross!!!

Hopefully our older bodies heal quickly and the few lads carrying injuries into yesterday will heal a bit more and the lads in longer injuries can get closer to full fitness. We have a good chance but thereís a lot to do yet.

One of the better finals in Armagh over the last few years and credit goes to both teams and the ref, who let it flow.  Thought the nab capitalised well on the high ball into the forward line, Grugan was hard to handle and is the old school full forward you rarely see anymore. 

Up the other end, cross were clinical as expected and the game was won in midfield with OíNeil and Hanratty doing the business (didnít realise Hanratty could shoot).  They were impressive all over the park, but seemed slightly exposed at the back.  It will be interesting to see how far the proceed in Ulster. 

I think the Nab may have missed there chance and be hard to see them pushing hard next year as they did this.  Armagh football is in a healthy position regardless. 
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

looked to be a great game of football from the highlights....
I know you can't tell much from one game, so to those who have seen Jack Grugan and that young lad McConville throughout the campaign - whats the thoughts on them? Is Jack county standard now? McConville future prospect?
I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight

By all accounts ballymacnabb had Cross beat and then they substituted their keeper?
All these Maghery men think they'd have beat Cross easy in the final and that it's coming back down the road to them again next year?

Well sure let them think that. Next year is next year.

Cross were well on top when the keeper was subbed. Maghery and Harps had their problems this year and they along with Ballymacnab and Cullyhanna will give Cross their fill of it next year. Hopefully another team steps forward too.
