    Ya why not? I assume the same old stories would crop up to avoid this but this would ensure teams have adequate games during the winter and avoid congestion in the spring which we are heading towards again.

    That was a great result for ballingarry v glin last wk..would like to see a good solid club like bgarry survive.. things must not be going too good in glin again, I heard there was a big fall out with management and players..one thing glin always had was there togetherness,but lately they seem to be pushovers. Another bad result and a win for granagh and bgarry would see them in the mix for the drop with kildimo.. any fixtures on st Patrick's wknd??

    No chance of Glin getting relegated. Not happening.

    I knew there'd be 1. I've been a critic of how the league have operated at the best of times, but how can you complain here? Last week there was a weather warning, the city league called off the games early and lads complained that Desmond league didn't follow suit and pitches would get ruined. This week there's a weather warning and games are called off and surprise surprise the Desmond league are wrong for not knowing it would be a nice day.

    Agreed, they can't win on that one, in fairness a yellow weather warning is a coin toss, they often overestimate but then last Sunday we got snow all of a sudden and matches get abandoned.

    They can only work with the information they have at a given time, and in fairness they took a chance on it last week so they decided to play it safe this week.

    Sometimes you'll look good in hindsight and sometimes you won't....

    Anyone hear what went on back in Abbey Tuesday night. Broadford vs Abbey in youth game. Supposedly trouble after the game where the ref was spat on and attacked. He rang the guards???

    Crazy stuff if true, you never hear of this out here?

    Need to be careful what's said here, but let's just say I wouldn't contradict you with the exception of the last bit, there was an in person visit to the local station I'm told...
    Going to be serious ramifications for Abbeyfeale if what I'm being told is true

    And rightly so, this kind of ****e just isn't acceptable. There have been a number of incidents involving refs this season. FAI need to come down hard on those involved in this cowardly stuff.

    Hi all. Does anyone know the league's plan in relation to summer soccer. I know that the schoolboys are starting this year but how do they plan to implement this into senior soccer.

    I suppose it'd have to go to a vote first (not trying to be smart with you), which there was rumblings of at last year's AGM.
    With regard to actually implementing it, you'd play a short season which the schoolboy league (and the League of Ireland in 2002/03) have done.
    I know Mayo play Summer League and I think that it'll be here, and everywhere else, sooner rather than later whether by the league's own decision or by the FAI forcing it across the board.

    Iíve heard a few times of different people that the FAI want calendar season for every junior league by 2021, not 100% if true, highly unlikely

    It was brought up by Ballysteen and was rejected by around 9 votes earlier this season.

    Yes it's true, all leagues in the ROI has to play summer soccer by 21, we have being playing SS since 95, best thing we ever did, but leagues management has a duty as well. The ML insisted on proper pitches, dressing rooms and a perimeter fence around all pitches

    Dressing rooms? Some teams haven't bought goals since 95, not to mind try to secure dressing rooms.

    Rugby will be the big winner at schoolboy level in the coming years . Next week is seeing the first clashes with a lot of midweek soccer games up against GAA . It might be manageable to play 2 sports if the clubs work together but those who play soccer , football and hurling are only going to get injuries and could do long term damage . Not sure where 3 codes are fairly strong , rathkeale , broadford , kildimo , Adare perhaps .
    Newcastle should have enough to field soccer only players .
