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

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.

Probably due to the fact Burren asked to postpone the game more than anything I'd imagine...hardly rocket science that one

Why would Burren postpone a game?

They were due to play Burren last Friday....Burren asked to postpone because of close contact for Covid and their U20s unavailable (They Asked to postpone before relegation announcement)

Carryduff CPN game was called off by County Board along with all other league fixtures because of the U20 final (Again before the announcement by County Board)

I assume clubs playing Thursday or tonight have done that now not really too bothered about the result, just wanting to get the show on the road etc...

Kilcoo
Burren
Clonduff
Mayobridge
CPN
Loughinisland
Carryduff
Ballyholland
Rostrevor
Bryansford

DIV2:

RGU
Castlewellan

Bredagh
Darraghcross
Saul
St Johns
Annaclone

Div3

Liatroim
Drumgath
Ballymartin
Saval
Shamrocks
Clann Na Banna
Tullylish
Bosco
Aughlisnafin
Attical
Teconnaught

Don't know enough about Div4 to even have an opinion...

Div1

Carryduff
Kilcoo
Burren
Mayobridge
Warrenpoint
Clonduff
Louginisland
Ballyholland

Bryansford

A day in the life of Down GAA, first we have the announcement of a new 5 man panel to pick the next Down manager but everyone knows only one name on that 5 man list will make the final call. Then we have the news that planing permission has been passed for our much needed center of excellence.

But to finish the day off in true Down fashion we go and get one of the biggest drubbings we have ever taken in underage championship, what an utter farce. Look at the great men who were overlooked for this job, hard questions must now start being asked and answered about the selection process, how the likes of Carr, Linden, Walsh, Hughes, were overlooked for this role is confusing. One of the biggest questions though has to be about our games manager, what progress are we making or what progress have we made with him in charge of development for over a decade now?

Cookery/Baking exercises - whatís that about???

Stevie p would have had a few of these lads on panel last year so it more than likely is still his fault!!!

Since 2009 (our last Ulster minor finalÖ correct me if Iím wrong), weíve tried just about every type of manager at this level. And (again, correct me if Iím wrong - but Iím not far away), none of them has won more than a single Championship match in a row.

It would kind of suggest that the problems maybe arenít beginning 8-12 weeks before championship.
