    That seems to confirm that Limerick didn't apply in the end.
    Looks like POS plan was to get limerick/treaty utd to withdraw, get a license & sell them his license. When they withdrew & refused to have anything to do with him, his license became worthless so he didn't apply

    Or just the fact he hasn't any manager, players or home ground and hasn't a pot to pish in.

    He wants to maintain a club presence in the underage leagues and will seek clarity from the NLEC tomorrow.

    Did no one from FD receive a licence that would cover them for the PD? Usually they’d announce about 15 PD licences

    I dont think so. We only got a FD Licence ourselves as Daire Doyle is not fully qualified to be a coach yet.

    Please don't exaggerate, Bunny! The original rules suggestion was that they could field 4 first team players in the starting 11 - that's just over 35%.

    If they have a premier division first team squad of about 24 players, sure it would take a whole 3 matches before they would reach the 50% mark you mention.

    Does any other national league in the world have a game by game loan system like this?

    Along with any of the underage or women's fixtures. I can only imagine the chaos the place must be in.

    Rovers are playing Cork on Friday and Waterford on Monday.
    If there are any first team players in the squad on Saturday i would be amazed.
    This has always been about the Academy player development , the overage players will be minimal IMO but Rovers are entitled to have the outlet for occasional use.
    That's what the rules were.

    More curious for on going basis what the rule is, obviously less likely to have senior players when games on a Monday.

    I wonder would they have some older players just for the B team to give them some experience, Richie Purdy & Sean Heaney played with the B's before & haven't signed up with anyone

    Lol, it's doubtful rovers squad will even be in the match programme because as of last night there was no confirmation of their set up for this season. Laughable.

    All this would've been an awful lot easier if first division clubs were reasonable to start with and didn't just stomp their feet and say "no, under no conditions" when we now clearly know that there are conditions that it's acceptable to them under. Them being that it's an u21 team.

    Is there any clarification on these rules?

    Up to 4 players from the premier division squad for each and every match is hardly 'occasional use'

    The notion of 'overage players' is a little bizarre and maybe a red herring- surely the problem is not the age of any player but that up to 4 players are allowed to switch over and back between the two divisions each matchday.

    This is a big problem now. Every post the club put up is full of comments asking if we are boycotting, the club probably should make some sort of statement that isn't a statement if that makes sense because I can see the gate being very small otherwise.

    I for one think the game will go ahead as our supporters club have their AGM tonight and we are introducing a new initiative for ex town players to be introduced to crowd at HT and an interview taking place in the clubhouse after the game. Dessie Baker will be the first person to be interviewed for 15 mins after the game this saturday. All mgt and players are coming in also afterwards too. There was no mention of boycott in minutes of Supporters Club whatapp I saw.

    I think this is Daire Doyles idea which is superb as will generate lot of interest.

    If they were still planning to boycott there would surely be a bit more noise about it.
