Antrim League

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Not sure if ballela played all county but def played south antrim or whatever its called for at least one year. It would help the duff a lot although the first year is all about gritting the teeth and getting out of div 4 as its fairly horrible. In saying that, talk is the leagues are being changed again so they might get into a slightly weaker div 4 than last year with a better chance of getting out.

antrim will improve them , better standard of play throughout antrim , bar that div 4 which is pretty poor , if they can get a cohesive squad together and bulk up a bit in the coming years as most of them are still pretty much teenagers / early 20s they do alright.

If only we had more of a push to get clubs promoting hurling in down , its a shame as half the lads in a carryduff or a bredagh (and the ards 2nds/3rds) will become disinterested playing the same small group of down lads each year and at such a terrible level of hurling too.

The junior championships just the start for bredagh (hopefully) , hopefully theyll move onto bigger and better things next year

Has the new fore mat been agreed for the Antrim league yet, or are we to guess?

antrim convention

All County Hurling Leagues have been restructured as follows;
Div 1 - 10 teams to be played home and away
Div 2 - 10 teams to be played home and away
Div 3 - 8 teams to be played home and away
Div 4 - 6 teams to be played home and away

so i take it the galgets are not relegated

That's right Christy. I believe the Galget are safe and there will be quite a few about Belfast who aren't too happy about that and would prefer that they were relegated in favour of the Paddies. Also a few in Ballycastle who would have preferred that outcome too as they are still smarting from the Galget relegating them 2 years ago.

Well done Portaferry on the big win over Waterfoot. I see the Crans are still undefeated. All three Ards clubs should stay up comfortably.

The Down game on Saturday must have taken it's toll on Sunday. Madness in this day and age players are expected to play 2 days in a row.
