Honestly boys need to shut up about Castlewellan, Newry, Downpatrick etc..  Weíve a strong squad who cares were players are from.. 7 starters were from East Down clubs and arguably the 3 best players on the night were from East Down.

Castlewellan havenít won a championship since the 90s same as RGU and a Newry club hasnít won a SFC since the 60s. Itís 2021 stop living in the past.

And Down haven't won anything since 1994.......

While there is a strong case for not responding to the likes of Befair, it should still be pointed out that our present u20s probably include a wider range  of clubs than any other Down squad in recent years. When Befair refers to the demise of east Down, he must have forgotten about Kilcoo. Walter asks about under age representation from Bredagh and Carryduff, so Lorcan Toal started for Down last night, and got better and better as the game went on. Our minors had a bad night against Tyrone but both midfielders and the full forward were from the Belfast neighbours.

Disgraceful scenes at the end of the minor league final today in Mayobridge.. Burren win the game easily but started an absolute melee.. these clubs need to be held to account like Ballyholland and Downpatrick were a few years ago.

Truth hurts

sssshhh move on.. nothing to see here, two of the so-called superclubs, nothing will be done about it. The videos did not look too kind though.

Well done to u20 team, that setup should be moved to senior ASAP, does anyone know if Conor and team are interested in going?

Looking through the results from the weekend, Newry Mitchells have not played a game. Have we lost one of our most famous clubs? Home of the great Sean O'Neill.

Looks like their game is off again tonight. Annoyingly, the Down website doesn't post the game as being cancelled, they just remove the referee from the fixture and leave the game up as if it was going ahead. To some, it might look like the game is still going to be played so that's misleading. I can imagine some supporters still travel to games on the back of it so I'd imagine some frustrated fans.

Is Conor interested? Where have you been living the past 4 days it's the biggest propaganda drive on social media since the US presidential election campaign. Conor and his Kilcoo compadres are beautifully construing an image of this angelic figure who has all of a sudden has been touched by an angel. The club championship is only around the corner, it won't be long before the mask slips. Never forget!

Any predictions for tonight's games, I am looking forward to watching the two best teams in the league play in Kilcoo tonight. It should be a cracker

Any melee or encroachment of the field by non-players should be considered as Ďbadí. Too often our games descend into an episode of the 3 Muskateers when really the isolated incident would fizzle out fairly quickly. And in this instance it was a childrenís match!

There will be no punishment for the two clubs, we all know that certain clubs in the county get preferential treatment when it comes to suspensions and hearings.  If that was RGU in those videos yesterday it would have been a different story and would be front-page news in the Irish news.

But if supporters had contributed to a fight then there should be consistent action taken . But we never get consistency.
