that'll comfort you at your Dinner dance with an empty trophy cabinet yet again.

(Edit Minor league)

Will G Coffey get senior hurler of the year again?

What's that old saying, leagues for playing and championship is for winning.

Sounds strange but it will really depend on the pitch and the style of refereeing.

Bog of a pitch and a referee that allows the spare arm tackle to go and S-Niel will make Dunloy work for their win as they'll try to impose a physical game on them which worked two years ago.

Still think Dunloy will have too much but neither team will finish with a full complement.

Club teams (barring Portaferry getting hammered) are never too far away in an AI club semi-final.

S-Neill had Cuala right to the wire till their keeper had a mindfart, the Dall have gotten to the final very recently so a young, slick Dunloy won't be far away in their time but it won't be this year.

I forgot about the Bessy Grey cup.

They'll be writing songs and stuff about that great win over the hill.

I might be sitting beside Paudie and Co come the NHL.

Not much competition from the other clubs in that regard.

You try keeping your younger brother on the field Mutley.

Good luck to Dennis and Mutley tomorrow who makes their managerial debuts with the Ballycran u21s under the tutorship of the great Owen Hughes.

The standard of hurling, the refereeing and the tactics used today by portaferry were all poor and hard to watch at times
The only good thing to look at was the Portaferry manager's legs.
Mutley and Dennis didn't have a great first day at the office, but I'm told they're determined to make amends this Friday night.
Worrying times for Ballycran if they need to make a few senior hurlers out of those players.

Have to agree poor enough game but it's was an exciting finish ballycran scored 90% of the scores from frees phelim probably there best player. What tactics you on about from Portaferry ?

Portaferry's number 12, if there'd be independent linesmen and umpires, he'd have got the line.
No place for that rubbish.
Especially when the target of his behaviour just wants to hurl
