i heard that portloaise were very interested in entering. could they make up the numbers if cobh pull out or would the likes of shels or limerick or fingal have the numbers for an a league side. they are all big clubs who aspire to be in the premier so could they enter a side??

It was already confirmed that Limerick won't be entering an A-team. I don't think Shels have a big enough squad but it would be no harm if they entered. Id prefer for Portlaoise to get in, as oppose to another reserve team

There will be 19 teams. Sporting Fingal are also putting in a reserve side as well.

we have received the groups and we are in with tullamore but none of the dublins clubs are in with us. sligo, galway, derry, harps, drogheda, dundalk, us, tullamore, salthill. not 100 per cent sure about that though

In our match programme last night, Aaron Callaghan (former Longford manager) was down as our first team coach; I think Paul Somers was specifically named as A Team coach last year. We do have 28 players in our squad, so if we don't enter a team, it won't be for lack of players, but presumably for cost. Meant to ask last night, but would still be sirprised if we don't enter a team.

Going by hoopforlife's info the groups are as follows:

Group 1
Sligo Rovers
Galway Utd
Derry City
Finn Harps
Drogheda Utd
Dundalk
Castlebar Celtic
Tullamore Town
Salthill Devon

Group 2
Cork City
FC Carlow
Tralee Dynamos
Sporting Fingal
Bohemians
Bray Wanderers
Cobh Ramblers
Shamrock Rovers
St Patricks Ath.
UCD

Only fair I suppose that theres an equal spread of non-league teams in each. Tullamore and Salthill will hopefully make improvements on last year, Cobh will hopefully be there, and Portlaoise, Tralee and Carlow will make steady starts. Good to see new teams from new counties being represented

Bit of a short straw for the Munster teams if those are the groups, could they not have organised three divisions (East, West, South?)

Hoop for life is a Castlebar Celtic fan anyways, not sure about markygoods. Maybe he supports Cobh or one of the other new teams

Derry and Tullamore in the same group? How is that regionalised?

eelmonster
12/03/2009, 3:10 PM
Are the sections supposed to be regionalised? Maybe this is based on the BMW 'region' (which, incidentally, Louth looks set to leave once the EU money runs out).

markygoods
12/03/2009, 4:01 PM
I suppose their reasoning is a bit flawed but If they had us in the other section we would have to travel to Cobh, Cork and Tralee, we are very central so you could put us either section and still laugh at the regional aspect.

I guess you're right but I just kind of assumed that you'd be in the same group as Portlaoise for the local rivalry!

That post is nothing but an assumption. If we get enough players I'd say we will enter but we don't have enough for a senior team at the moment, let alone a reserve team as well.

Fair Play. Thank for posting that before, it gave an accurate assesment of the situation at UCD and you were responding to some very poor judgement from someone who is very ignorant of Irish football. But has alot of influence on this site unfortunately. The site suffers because of it

Thanks again.

UCD wont be fielding an 'A' team, one reason is a lack of support and managerial staff.

I saw that but it only says week-ending April 5th. Venues are not always the main clubs grounds and there is no KO times above. I appreciate what you meant though, you probably didn't fully understand what I was trying to say

Do teams have to finish in the top 3 or the top 4 to qualify for the promotion play-off?

I always thought it was top 4, but according to:

it's a top 3 spot.
