2011 also saw Bredagh Senior Hurlers compete in the Down Senior Hurling Championship for the first time in the history of the club.
In 2012 Bredagh Senior Hurlers won the Down Junior Hurling Championship for the second time after re-structuring from the Down County Board saw them drop from Senior Championship to Junior.

That year as a realignment exercise in Down and an anomaly .

That happens every year in Derry.

U17 Ballycran to bridge the Gap that we failed to close last year
U15 Ballygalget still seem to be a good bit ahead
U14 (Feile) Ballygalget are very confident but Carryduff or Bredagh may shock in the games in Cherryvale.
U13 Allegedly this is full sided, so who knows, O'Rahilly's or Ballygalget I'm told.

How do we decide who plays in the Ulster minors organised by Ballinascreen, no one seems to know!

Were you not watching the U16 final last year?

Ports will have their usual drop outs at this age as they normally do.

Yes, and an entertaining match it was, but the ports were the overall better team and finished the strongest with a few influential players missing on the day, goals helped the crans take a lead but the Ports weathered the storm and they were able to move their players around and got their star players on the ball, both sides are talented and should be a good contest this year at u17- you'll not see any player drop off this year so the Ports will be favourites again this year.

I was indeed but it's not about how you start, it's about how you finish! If only the seniors could of learned from them and not lie down.

If that's the case the player should be reported and sanctioned , can't hit officials regardless of who started what
