  1. Quick round up of last night’s Championship action as Loughgall go six points clear at the top! https://www.nifootballleague.com/news/2022/september/villagers-six-clear-after-a-busy-night-in-the-championship/
  2. Carrick unlucky tonight, not much between the two sides, a lack of concentration for Larne’s late winner perhaps, but two decent penalty shouts turned down for the Ambers, (would like to see them back again). Enough to go home to feel positive about though! Deserved a point at least![emoji53] ETA, disappointing to see Ballyclare losing at Institute tonight, got a real deja vu feeling from last year’s start![emoji53]
  3. The NIFL highlights show makes a welcome return this week, Wednesday at 23:15pm on BBC 2 Norn Iron & The BBC iPlayer (and presumably its new permanent slot).
  4. A pal of mine down south and long standing STH at Burnley shared that; Seán Dyche recently headed back up to Burnley from his Northants home to honour a promise he made before his departure from Turf Moor, to visit a local pub renamed after him ‘The Royal Dyche’ (previously The Princess Royal). Dyche held an impromptu ‘lock-in’ Q&A session with fans spending over 2 hours reflecting on his time as Burnley Manager and his future plans. A few regrets understandably but no excuses or sour grapes. On leaving he paid the bar tab in full. Sounds like a decent chap.
  5. Will she invite the ‘Tea Sock’ to this meeting perhaps?[emoji23]
  6. Plenty of goals in the Championship yesterday. Leaders Loughgall put 4 past Welders at Lakeview, whilst new boys Newington had their most impressive return yet with a 5-2 win over Ballyclare at Solutude. Ballinamallard also hit four with a late burst to push past Ards at Ferney Park. Institute had a comfortable 3-0 over Dergview at Darragh Park. Rounding things up Warrenpoint continued their recent run of form with a 2-1 win away at Knockbreda. As the table takes shape. Loughgall sit top with 16 points from 6 games. Annagh United are second on 13 points having played a game less. Dergview rooted to the bottom still winless with just a single point from their first six games.

  7. Sounded like a close game though @Jacksgranda? Couple of really good chances for the Bannsiders but undone on the break. Delighted with 3 points for the Ambers up at Ballymena!
  8. Didn’t see the game last night, (in Wigan at the Rugby League - SL Semi Final), watched the highlights this morning though. Only half a dozen games in but the Premiership is already shaping up to be a fascinating contest this year. Hopefully Carrick can continue a decent wee run of form up at the Ballymena Showgrounds this afternoon.
  9. Good piece on Glenavon youngster Christopher Atherton too!
  10. Great performance and result for Dundela at Wilgar Park!
  11. Wow, some finish, McIlroy couldn’t have gone closer for an Eagle 3 on the 18th to force the playoff. Lowry wins.
  12. Wonderful stuff from Shane Lowry at Wentworth a faultless performance -17 (65). Surely enough to clinch it now?
  13. That’s an absolute monster of a drive down the Par 4 11th from McIlroy!!
  14. Managed to get a day in at the LV= Div 2 Championship game earlier this week, Derbyshire Vs Durham. It’s been a long time since I last did this, but was a pleasant reminder, just how enjoyable it can be, a quiet afternoon at the Cricket with a cold beer.
  15. Should have been watching Fulham Vs Chelsea in the pub up at Sanquhar then the game Lorimer Park. Probably just spend the afternoon in the local, channel hopping for any live sport whatsoever then Fish n’ Chips at Moore’s to ensure that the afternoon isn’t completely wasted.[emoji53]
  16. Both tonight’s fixtures at Inver Park and Solitude cancelled and tomorrow’s Premiership, Championship and Intermediate games postponed ‘as a mark of respect by the NIFL’ following the death of QEII yesterday. https://www.nifootballleague.com/news/2022/september/nifl-fixtures-postponed/
  17. Another corker from Andy Mitchell for Carrick at Mourneview and perhaps an even better strike by Curtis Allen for the equaliser!!
  18. Invite a well known sardonic wit onto your show and not expect them to rip the piss out of this whole pantomime with Liz Truss in a starring role? Talk about an open goal. The rest of us can’t take this seriously, neither could Joe Lycett.
  19. Came across one whilst out walking last weekend, near Clatteringshaws Loch with Mrs C. Haven’t seen one in years, but wasn’t quick enough to whip my phone out for a picture as it soon f*cked off into the longer grass. Thought best not to pursue, but quite exciting all the same.
  20. In the Lough 41 Championship yesterday wins for the top three Loughgall, Annagh United and Dundela. Ballyclare Comrades move up to fourth spot after a see-saw five goal thriller at Dixon Park. Dergview and Institute remain winless after five games and occupy the bottom two places at the foot of the table. Dundela at home to Loughgall probably the pick of next weekend’s fixtures. Full round up of yesterdays games; https://www.nifootballleague.com/news/2022/september/championship-starting-to-take-shape/
  21. What a result for Newry City tonight 5-1 winners away at Glenavon!!
  22. Gary Smythe sacked at H&W Welders. https://www.nifootballleague.com/news/2022/august/smyth-parts-ways-with-the-welders/
  23. What a strike from Andrew Mitchell though!! Irish Premiership: Euro exit no excuse for defeat at Carrick - Healy https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/62701463
  24. What a result for Carrick Rangers this afternoon, 2-1 winners against Linfield at home. Just beaming!!
