The thing about St Enda's is they are now reaping the rewards of their move into the North Antrim and South West Divisional boards which improved their underage hurling and football to no ends.

I think they weren't too happy with the amount of cancelled underage games in both codes in the South Antrim board when they played there.

Part of the deal with North Antrim was they had to play all their games away for the first year. I dont think they missed a match.

Is Gaelfast advertising for another manager. I think Neal Peden took over from PD when he stepped down. Seems like its turning into a bit of a Horlicks.

I cant understand why Gaelfast sent a coach into a primary school which is a feeder school for a hurling only club, to coach football. Very poor communication.

I hope that Gaelfast is not going to implode but I think this needs to be managed properly to have each club catered for their needs and not seen as jobs for the boys.

If managed correctly Gaelfast can be a success but needs everyone singing off the same hymnsheet and communications established between all parties.

Its obvious Covid has thrown a spanner in the works but as we return to some sort of normality hopefully it can get on the road that it was intended to do.

I honestly thought gaelfast would have several bright, vibrant and exciting initiatives to reignite games in the county but it seems to be completely falling apart. Its very sad.

Have you looked at the Gaelfast facebook page . There is plenty of good work going on at primary school level. The coaches also deliver coaching support & qualifications . They are heavily involved in dev squads.

Most of the pupils have probably never heard of hurling or gaelic football and Id say neither have many of the parents.

There is no facility for football outside the school as it's difficult enough trying to get an underage hurling structure underway, especially when its a small hurling club so having a Gaelfast coach demonstrating football is a waste of time and money.

Im well aware of the qualifications of the Gaelfast coaches. Woody is still travelling around primary schools in N Antrim and he is a brilliant coach. Unfortunately his remit does not extend to the catchment schools of our club.

If you were willing to commit and coach kids it actually can be very rewarding for both weans and coaches. Obviously if you have your own youngsters involved it comes much easier.

I think to be a successful coach you need to be 1) very good with children be very creative 2) go in with a very good plan

It dose no harm either to do a few on line coaching seminars. The likes of Martin Fogarty runs them every so often and there very beneficial.

Just an example some of the kids i coach had trouble soloing
the sliotar and you could see it was effecting their confidence. Now we simply replaced the sliotar with a bean bag which they could all manage with very little difficulty.

Not a bad idea to take kids on a day trip to see a big match in Croke Park. You would be hopeful that by planting a little seed in their mind that they would want to play there to some day.

Also ask for feed back from players and parents so you can improve each training session. Maybe bring in a County player or coach to run a few drills for a treat.

As long as their having a good time you would be telling them to bring a friend the next day. I even buy the kids their own hu t l and sliotar and give them homework like roll lifting, jab lifting using the wall for a couple of hundred pucks of your left and right. I actually enjoy coaching its like your a kid again.

This is probably one of our best teams in years. Were strong all over the field and have a very good bench to come on. Not alot between these two teams but hopefully we get the rub of the green tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.

Very cagy opening, Dublin elected to play against the wind, it looks like a 6 point wind, McManus playing with 4 along the half forward line means the full forwards playing off scraps!
