Are there no full-backs in Derry any more?

(Oldest Posts First)

With Kevin McCloy gone and Niall McCusker still out, how are Derry going to stop themselves being beaten by any team who can put ball into a tall forward on the edge of the square? I live in Donegal and usually only get to see the latter stages of the club championships, but the best full-back I saw last year was Gavin McLaughlin of Dungiven, who seemed to get a bit of a run out in the McKenna cup and was never seen again - what's the story there? As someone mentions elsewhere as well, Joe O'Kane played good stuff for the Loup at full-back in both the Derry and Ulster championships - I saw a few of their games and he was very solid and also showed good leadership to younger players around him. As I say, I'm not that up to date on recent club form, and I wonder if anyone out there knows why neither of those men are on the Derry panel, or alternatively, what other full-backs are playing well for their clubs?
