from: The recent car-park works at the pitch are absolutely fantastic. Coupled with the floodlights, we are all very proud. Thanks to all who worked so hard in putting these improvements in place.

from: Great articles in the Irish News over the past few days on Micky Culbert and Ciaran McFaul. Micky is a great gael, patriot and human being. He stands out in these times when there is so much talk of money grabbing doing the managerial merry go round. Ciaran is a great example to our younger players. He has great talent but has worked very hard to get where he is. He is only just coming in to the prime of his career. It is great to see him settling him in the Parish and basing his family here. He will be a great servant of our club long after his playing career ends. Good luck, Ciaran and Clare in this, the next phase of your lives.

from: seatoflearnin' It is enormously sad to hear of the sad passing of Johnny Kielt. Those of a certain age will remember his massive contribution to Watty Grahams over many years. Johnny was always there even when the Club was in a less than thriving state, often playing two matches on a Sunday when personnel were scarce. He was competitive and fearless and never gave less than his all. When he retired from playing he helped with underage teams. When the Club had their first scoreboard installed he manufactured all the letters and numbers himself. Before the practice pitch was built there was a water problem and he spent many lonely hours digging drains to alleviate the problem.Johnny applied himself to sorting problems rather than pointing them out. He also ran table quizzes for Club funds and loyally did door duty. There are hundreds of beautifully hand crafted certificates around the Parish and beyond created by him to honour all those who had ever taken part in Gaelic games. The thrill my parents got from this gesture was memorable. Again this was a huge labour taken on by one dedicated person. It was a continuation of his family's contribution to our Club which spanned the decades. This gives but a flavour of the man's Club contribution. Johnny was great fun to be with especially at games. He insisted on wearing an "old crone" mask at an u-21 All Ireland final in Enniskillen. He lapped up the humour he engendered. If there was an opportunity to inject humour into the often tense atmosphere at a match he took it. Dedicated, truthful, principled,community orientated,loyal,industrious,witty,modest,spiritual,decent, grounded-these are some of the qualities that come to mind. Giants among men come in many guises. I would like to offer his wife and family my most sincere sympathy on their loss.

from: We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all our underage coaches. I would not have the patience to do their job. It is no easy task dealing with that many children and teenagers. I find it hard enough coping with my own.

from: A massive thanks to all those involved in the Gala and in the floodlights projects. Your hard work is appreciated and will help take us to a new level in the years to come. All in all, we have had a decent year.... one that will be looked upon as an important one in terms of our development as a club. We are still developing and growing and have many lessons to learn. Our senior team had a decent year overall. They will grow and mature and the experiences this year will be invaluable. They will add great players to their number this year and next. Our underage continues to thrive. We do not have the numbers that others clubs do but we are getting the most from the lads and there are Glen lads to the fore in all St Pat's and Derry teams. The camogie girls did us proud. I can't recall such a large panel ever before. The hard work continues there also. We are starting to see the fruits of our labours. Hasta la victoria siempre

from: At yesterdays Fergal Mc Cusker tournament, the u10 mums provided tea, soup etc foc to the visitors. A donation box was left out and £260 was collected. We have decided to put this and all receipts from the Hugh Glass u12 tournament next week together, with all proceeds going to the charities chosen by the family of the late Daniel Bradley. Please support a good cause.

Wattee signed on: 10/09/2018 13:58:50
from: In light of the performances at Owenbeg on Sunday evening it's more important than ever that GLEN continues with the positive entertaining style of football that we are respected for playing. We may lose a few games that otherwise might have been won by playing puke football but in the longer term it will be for the better.

from: Well done to the Minors and their management on their win in the League...of course, it is early days yet and the emhasis will be on the Championship. But it is great to see the performances and wins against teams that beat us easily when we were younger and smaller... further evidence of the good coaching and hard work that is ongoing. These great young footballers will be a great addition to our senior panel in the next few years... if they continue to work hard, stay grounded and play the Glen Way! Towards victory always!

from: seatoflearnin' There is a meeting in the Link on Thursday night at 8pm about the plans to develop the old Largantogher site. A local group want to see a community facility there instead of industrial development. As it happens I agree with them. I think that even the difficulty of accessing the Craigadick Road and the increase of traffic pressure on The Hall street area make this a concern of our Club .

Parents signed on: 06/08/2018 08:17:12
from: As parents, we'd like to publically put on record our appreciation of the great work put in by the U14 management. In the end too many of our boys were too small. But this will change in the years to come as they grow. They will have success and most importantly, we will add quite a few seniors to our panel. Hopefully, those in the management continue to offer their services.

from: seatoflearnin' I want to add my support to the contributor who wants a green space project on the outskirts of the town. I suggest that such a site in Magherafelt would be developed for leisure. Methinks there are quite a few advance units sitting vacant in the Council area as it is and a plqce with 150 year old trees in it's position could be used in a better way.

from: seatoflearnin' What I know about camogie could be written on a flea's forehead but I recognise determination and guts. The u-14 team were superb the other night and the attitude shown was a delight to behold. They were warriors!

from: Maghera Can everyone at the club get behind the campaign for a park in Maghera. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone within in the community to provide some much needed green space (outside of WG park of course) that we can all be proud of. Please spread the word and get supporting!

from: Great performance today from our U12 boys. They played a very good Steelstown team who until today were undefeated and had even beaten us well in a pre-season friendly. Our boys played the fluid football that we are coming to expect of our teams. There are lots of future senior footballers in this group. A special mention must go to our full back who had an excellent game against strong adversaries - nine year old Neil McDermot. A big thank you is due to the young men (along with Ciaran Molloy😉) who have instilled the 'Glen way' in this group.... and not a 'doting daddy' among them!
