    They would if they were tax resident here rather than living.
    I was thinking about Derry players. i wonder would they qualify, youd guess not as Derry is as UK as Manchester (we are talking TAX here rather than the bigger picture).
    Maybe if they were living in Donegal and being paid gross and paying their own taxes here..
    At the end of the day the IRish Revenue aren't going to pay back taxes that were collected in the UK
    Youd have to think Derry would find a way around it that would work.
    If they are only gettng a few hundred which would be a lot of Derry players then its not that important i suppose but for bigger earners its a def issue.
    This tax scheme must have been brought in for the egg chasers

    You do realise that Rovers now have a first team squad of at least 30 players on professional contracts don't you ?

    There's a bit on its introduction (in 2002) here.

    McCreevy said it was all his own idea and definitely wasn't anything to do with lobbying from jockeys.

    He notes egg chasers and LoI footballers as the main likely beneficiaries. And there was probably an element of trying to attract back individual sportspeople - like golfers - who had left Ireland for tax reasons.

    I'm not confident at all that Dundalk won't win it; I'm honestly just baffled there isn't more discontent among Dundalk fans with the approach during the off-season!!!

    Rovers released the first team squad for the season the other day and there are exactly 21 players in it. There are a lot of kids on pro-deals at Rovers which makes perfect sense given they were planning to field a B team up until last week, and also a number of top academy talents have recently left for compensation.

    I was wondering about Chris Shields eg who lives up north. It was this scheme that Neale Fenn claimed was his reason for wanting a mutual termination of contract back in the day. There must have been some quirk to the scheme back then where players got a tax rebate for the year if quitting the semi-pro status. It could negatively impact Derry if there isnt a similar scheme or a way around it - putting a club office in Stranrolar maybe

    On the first point - Orielweb was a fair auld battleground before Christmas especially when Gannon's exit to Rovers was confirmed. Fans were as polarised as Trumps America! The second point, meh you are splitting hairs. Dundalk I think have 24 in the squad and a couple gone on loan. 1st team squad includes a couple of youngsters that were promoted eg O'Kane. Rovers have what 22 1st team players, loans out too and with Towell to come in and he is worth 3 squad players!!

    Rovers have 19 senior pros and 2 kids from the acdamy that are designated as first team (you can see the squad on shamrockrovers.ie) and have also signed 8 or 9 academy kids on pro contracts who are doing Ashfield college for their leaving certs and playing for the 19's or 17s.

    The kids are being secured for the future.

    For this season all u-19's are registered along with the first team so that clubs can't postpone fixtures if there's a covid outbreak at the club.

    Yes and I thought it was sorted years age eveyrone has the 4th biggest budget! It is like a slight on clubs or a financial moral highground stance thats taken (up there with worst standard season ever). Understandable when clubs in the past spent money that was never had but I dont think Rovers or Dundalk currently will be left wanting if there is an opportunity to try to sign a known quality player. I doubt Towell would come cheap regardless of who he may end up with in the Summer. If its value for money that fans want and expect neither Dundalk or Rovers would top that league!

    You still have to register the 19's. They're not all automatically registered.

    Mark Coyle confirmed back at Harps as our first team squad now sits at a healthy 25 players, including four under-19's signed to the first team.

    Why do you imagine there would be discontent among Dundalk fans? The gaffer has brought in new signings to replace the ones we lost and added a few more.We looked fairly robust v Bohs yesterday.(albeit that was a friendly)
    When Dundalk fans get fed up with fillipo you and the re st of the league will know!Right now,we're grand thanks.

    Players will always move, its part and parcel of the game. I think we have assembled a decent squad, and as per the point made before, still 9 who took part in the cup final still there.

    Rogers was always going, and that's the key area of concern, no idea how Abibi will work out, Cherrie has won a title with DFC in 2014, but that seems a long time ago, some GK's do get better with age, and he might still be good at this level, but reports from Derry last year didn't seem to be good. I`m just not sure why they didn't go for a proven name in GK area, now one or both of them might do very well, but it shouldn't have come to the 'hoping', lets see how they do.

    All other areas no concern, defence looks tight, and the new Latvian defender was excellent v Bohs, MF looks decent, and 4 strikers to pick from.

    Still the only one to leave in my view that was a nailed on starter was Gannon, and that was a disappointment, but hopefully Jurkovskis can fill that gap, if he is being used on the right side.
