Our underage teams are definitely on the up. Contested 4 of last 5 Ulster Finals (3 under McErlain) and last two U20 finals (1 W 1 L). Derry practically owns Ulster Club minor championship and our schools are strong. Really hard to pinpoint why we went from a Div 1 team with good record in the league to Div 4. McErlain was by all accounts a very decent fella who did brilliantly with the minor teams but maybe the senior job came too soon for him. We have shown some tactical naivety and shipped some really heavy scores in past couple of yeas, albeit we put up some good scores ourselves. This year was opportunity wasted, Laois were not that good but tactically more astute. We didnt seem to know how to react to their change of tactics in second half and ended up producing a woeful second half. An experienced manager might be what we need now.
