    I see the presidents cup between pats and rovers may also serve as the Champions Cup semi final. For a competition that’s only ever taken place once, the reputation of that tournament has well in truly been dragged through the mud since it’s inception

    Id see it as a very practical solution. I donít think the appetite is out there for two games between the sides in Tallaght before the season starts proper.

    I’d agree with you there it definitely suits the clubs but from the competition organisers point of view, it’s basically 2 clubs saying yeah we’re not bothered playing in your semi final so one of us will just play the final. It’s essentially changing the format of the competition seen as the NI teams will presumably still play their semi, unless they decide to use the result of a league game between the two to decide who plays the final

    It will be interesting to see how itís presented. Iíd say the compromise will be that the match will be labelled as the unite semi final & the winner will be awarded the presidents cup.

    Yeah could well be that way. I reckon it’ll cause havoc with websites that record appearance/goal stats with some likely to double up for this game(s)

    Given the history of the cup winners being a top 2 club in the league for the last 7 years, we might see this whole scenario more often going forward unless they permanently change the format again

    Yeah it’s a strange one, even with covid regulations being currently at 50% of capacity, LOI friendlies tend to have an absolute maximum of 100 people when played on an Astro somewhere which most are. The week before the first game of the season when clubs tend to play their final friendly in their stadiums there’s healthier attendances but still well less than 20% of capacity

    Keeping trialists as much under wraps as possible to minimise the chances of a raiding hoard from Tallaght, especially if strikers!?

    Possibly, but given how small the LOI is, it’s likely that word would get out anyways purely from the opposition players even. A funny one that springs to mind from last season was pats playing cork in a friendly and naming 'trialist' in the starting 11 in their match updates, while cork announced Ronan Murray as a goalscorer for pats which let the cat out of the bag and forced pats to follow suit with their update

    On the topic of trialists getting poached after friendlies Derry played Cliftonville in Solitude last year.

    Cliftonville had a Gerard Storey in their lineup as a trialist who played suffficiently well to be signed within a few days - by Derry.

    It's a very good facility down in Fairview. Harps played them in the FAI cup there last summer. It's clever the way they built their seating area into the side of the clubhouse.
