    Lakewood are gone too . Soon any club with an underage setup and own their own pitch will be gone . Who is left in AUL that has those? Innishvilla , Coachford , Macroom , Buttevant , Corkbeg , Springfield, Watergrasshill and Richmond? Maybe I am missing some . Who next then to go Innishvilla , Coachford and Macroom perhaps? The rest would be lower down in the AUL . The AUL will be nothing more than a pub league soon enough with all clubs renting a patch of grass somewhere. So the AUL can forget about a plan as the MSL will just take the clubs with the better setups

    Kanturk,Chruchvilla,Bweeng and Blackstone all have underage teams but Kanturk are the only ones I know for sure have their own grounds.

    I think in the main what's left are places where the GAA is strong and don't have an underage step up as a result.

    And also City clubs who don't fit the entry requirements and where core numbers are small and rely on transfers in of players each year to keep things fresh.

    There still is a huge number of players in the AUL but will be very interesting to see what way all the sections are set up as I think they said there will be no 3 game leagues this year.

    An other problem was teams not going down as a result of teams pulling out if your down your down its brutal I know but most teams that were saved still went the season after,, only way now is 5 division s prem to div 3,

    I agree with the single divisions.

    10 Years ago in particular when there were huge numbers, the broken divisions were ideal. Change is needed now to be fair.

    Much news on new teams in AUL?

    I think looking at the numbers most divions could operate a single section they all would have at least 10 I think 3rd division would be the biggest with maybe 13 but that would also depended on if teams get relegate from division 2 as 2 teams pulled out from division 2 last year

    Good few back the 9th July. Don't blame a lot for going later, some team's seasons dragged on very late.

    Any talks of clubs getting in new managers/players for a push?

    That's some statement of intent in fairness to them.

    They go back early every year, way to early in my opinion the league wasn’t over a month and they were back. Saying that they had 16 there supposedly

    New Business League team, Colso Celtic back this week, probably setting themselves up to see how they're fixed.

    Some going by Pearse, wouldn't want to be playing them in pre season if they're back already!

    I know ya and then they get to the semi of something and fold serious bottle jobs under gaffers but you never know it might be the start of something with a bit of kilreen edge to them

    Also seen that nipper is gone from Quinlan’s, must be looking to get back to a top AUL side after doing a double last year with them.

    The business league should get juicier too. Will have a number of extra teams. After the damage Satellite Taxis did to the msl teams last season they’ll all believe they can repeat that with a bit of commitment to training. See fellas mentioning that nipper won the double with Quinlans. Very well played but don’t forget they finished fourth in the league so you have UCC, Satellite Taxis and Doolans with very strong Cork Junior squads as well.
