Beat yet again. Our record in this competition is the laughing stock of Ulster.
For anybody who was there last night, did you see the difference in sheer physicality of the two teams?
It was men against boys. Armagh bullied us all around the pitch.
When are the county board going to wake up and start investing properly in our underage teams, structure and coaching?
The old excuse about our lack numbers is rubbish.
We need to have a full time strength and conditioning coach employed by the county who sole purpose is working with our underage development squads for U-16 upwards. Too many of our young players are slipping away and are not being physically developed like the rest of their counterparts in Ulster.
Many of these players were extremely unlucky to lose in a McRory semi final 3 years ago with St Michael's.
How can they go from being competitive at there age group to being completely outgunned in three years?
Here is where the real problem is for Fermanagh football. It's time the county board took some action.
