Brilliant news. Well done County Board on a good decision. They get enough stick from us when they f**k up so fair play to them on making the right call...

Just a pity no games tonight worth talking about, roll on next week

Good that the county board made a call and now league matches continue regardless
Credit where it is due
They seem problems may arise and dealt with it
Went to Rostrevor and Mayobridge on Friday night good first 45 then the bridge pulled away final quarter
Rostrevor very much in transition with lots of young lads and I think they may struggle this year without Mooney
What is going on in An Riocht beat by 20 points by Downpatrick? Are Downpatrick really that far ahead of them?

Kingdom missing 6 starters due to isolation. Only had 3/4 subs with them but looked second best all over the field

Any players I've talked to are totally fucked off. Glorified friendlies was the most used phrase.

Iím unsure as to how this could possibly be true . Any team newly promoted will be delighted as they get a free pass in the division for a year to improve . Any team who normally struggle equally so And for any team with aspirations of a top two finish nothing changes . Iíd say this is negativity for negativityís sake

Absolutely. Almost unanimous agreement among the clubs. Most players and coaches Iíve spoken to are delighted to be playing league football. Letís hope Covid gives us a clear run at it

Any info on the two Div1 games last week? Heard Mayobridge were mightily impressive all over the park, with Shane Annette, Kevin McClorey and Corey Quinn impressing...Corey racking up 3-6

Rostrevor are a poor enough for Division 1...and when a couple of the old guard call it a day I think they'll struggle massively...they will be thankful of the free pass for another year in Div 1.

Any word on the Kilcoo/Ford game? Expected that to be a tanking tbh...5pts is much closer than most people would've thought...Did Kilcoo have an experimental team out?

Some good games to look forward to over the next few weeks...Burren will be the one to watch this year

Not at all. I'm not a player. I'd have more interest in under age football these days. Just feeding back what's been said to me .

Who are the Society of St Peter?

I see them down for a few underage hurling and football games.

That's probably who it is, but all of a sudden the English version is coming up on the Down fixtures website when it was the Irish version before.

Kilcoo coasted through the game in third gear, it will be interesting to see what the Burren game will be like this week.

I see on Down website that the Down u17 team play Tyrone tomorrow night, does anyone know what the team is or what clubs are represented? There is nothing on social media about this as all the media seems to be around the u20.
Are Burren still the stand-out team at minor level?

CPN able to play a friendly this week but calling off their league game. The league is no relegation so donít understand why they wonít play.
