I have just received another brick in the JFC Wall from Shane Mullan who informs me that Mitchells won the Junior Football Championship in 2002.
Just seen you’re missing 2002 when Mitchell’s won the championship, they were beaten by eventual Ulster winners Corduff in the first round.
Here’s the Ulster Draw
Draw: Corduff (Monaghan) v John Mitchells (Antrim); Crossmaglen (Armagh) v Cavan champions Urney; Tyrone v Ardglass (Down); Castlefin (Donegal) v Derry champions.
For those of you unfamiliar with this project we are trying to complete an Antrim JFC Role of Honour as there doesn’t appear to be one. The project was the idea of Eire Og man, Conor McKenna who got the ball rolling and sent me a list of recent winners.
Since then the project has been going well with Eunan Walsh from Aghagallon sending us a list of winners from 1927 to 1951 while others have sent photographs and photos of winner’ 1999, 97, s medals as the list has grown.
We are still missing the winners from 1999, 97, 94, 93, 89, 88, 86, 85, 83, 82, 81, 80, 77, 73, 68, 66, 65, 59, 56, 55, 54, 1940 to1952.
Some of these winners are probably Senior Reserve or Second teams as these sides were eligible to play up to the early 80’s.
If your club won the JFC in any of the missing years above please let us know. If you have a photograph from that year please send it to us including a photograph of your winning medal.
A full list of the teams we already have appears earlier on this site under the heading ‘WHAT YEAR DID YOUR CLUB WIN THE JFC’
