“that the top three clubs in South Antrim have failed to win more than a single game at minor level in 2018”.   Jeez that’s next year written off already. Sad times.

Yes a boxer taking gaa trainings sounds like a professional set up all right.

Players cant pick manager butits their choice whether to turn out or not. Antrim board has made their choice a straightforwars one.

A straightforward choice, not to play, really? If any player chooses not to play simply based on their preferred manager of choice not getting the job, well, are they the guys we want playing for the county?

On another note altogether, the 3 South Antrim U12 finals took place at O'Donnells pitch yesterday. Great morning of football, well organised and hosted and some great football played too. Credit where it is due, well done O'Donnells and South Antrim.

First member of the backroom team we know is Brendan Treanor, a Tyrone man.

Jeez...this is a new record of some kind. Lenny has been in post less than a full day and already some people - Antrim supporters apparently - are prepared to write off his tenure as a failure. He deserves the support of us all, and all our clubs as he tried to turn around our fortunes. Best wishes to him and whatever backroom team he brings on board.

I think that is because we've been good down this road before, a West Belfast manager who is an ex county man and has mates on the committee. Now, before I get accused of being negative etc, I've no gripe with Lenny Harbinson or whoever his backroom team is.

Hey, let us know when you are being negative, just so we know. Thanks.

Maybe too many clubs / not enough players are two sides of the same coin. When clubs amalgamate at various age grades to field teams thats a sign that the player base is self evidently spread too thinly.

To be fair to all concerned, taking a team, sitting on a club committee, indeed organising leagues / competitions as SA do, none of it is easy.

I think time of year would help, more Spring and Autumn games over summer games during the exam period. But even scheduling won't help with the lack of teams, not in the short term anyway. What about taking U16 All County?

Think you are in denial MR2....under-age is at an all time low in S Antrim......have a look at the lack of strength at minor level.....teams from top clubs are poor in the extreme with Rossa and Brigids notable exceptions.

I'm involved with under age football across a couple of age groups in SA. The statement above is too sweeping, there are a number of clubs, alongside Rossa and Brigids who are strong at some age groups, but the overall point is correct. There are some 'top clubs' who ftf on a regular basis at U16 and are very weak at lower age groups. Only St Pauls and Brigids field 2 teams (thats 20 players.....) at U12, only St Brigids run two U16 teams.

Between league and championship this year my U16 (B) team will have played 10 or 11 games, thats not enough. Challenge games can bring the number closer to 20 but still...not enough teams, not enough games.
