Pretty sure it hasn't been announced yet. 10 days until we play Louth, so I'd say the white smoke will emerge soon. Lets get behind them from the start!

Tyrdub, curious as you where present at said incident, did you sign a statement for the referee at the time?  ;)

why?
what relevance is it to you?

Well you were quiet candid in your declaration that you where involved in the incident and showing support for referee/referees. A number of investigations took place, Ray allegedly did reach out to a lot of people to support him that were there on the day including other officials in relation to personal statements, including those to the local PSNI and but a few i believe actually stepped up? The lad was left hanging in the wind, Duffy on the back of that allegedly was asked by a local media platform in an interview would he encourage people to referee and because he said "no" in the present climate he was supposedly suspended by some of the people who presently seek to promote new referees within the county? Historical it may be but it goes to the heart of the issue, when your backs to the wall in doing what looks like thankless task a lot of the time, who can you rely on to support you if common incidents such as this continue, thankfully not a severe as the Ballymena incident? Matthews, Elliott, Duffy all successful National and AI Officials were all there on the day I believe and the fact that these lads are all still actively refereeing in the Gaa but not in Antrim Hurling & Football what does that say?  We cannot get Referees in Antrim, so is the Role, People in these Committee's, County Approach, Support or as it seems to be " Just Lip Service" As a Gael in Antrim i feel its sufficiently relevant .

County Manager usually let fringe players play club games for game time, although with no relegation in league football, there is less pressure to do so in 2021

Fringe players are there  for a reason, your first 24 players wont be playing club games to championship is over  on / after 4th July . The fringe players may well get club games during National League as you can only have a panel of 24 on match days
