    Not directly related, but this statement by Wexford FC on their new admin structures seems a template that Kerry could follow going into the future - as well as their Supporters Trust, it's proposed that clubs in the Wexford League along with businesses in the county would buy a shareholding in the local LoI club, increasing financial stability:

    Unless any amount of a cash injection is pressing, i'm not sure about the timing for looking for people to purchase shares. Sounds positive in principle though.

    Rather belatedly, they've cottoned on that the free-scoring form of the U19 squad is their best promotional tool for the considerable future:

    Five of the U19 squad called up to train with the Irish U19s this week, which was, after all, the main reason for entering that league:

    That's some achievement. Would it be fair to say a player who's good enough for the U19s national team is good enough for the first division?
    oh boy I'm not good at football forums

    The FAI have made some comments about wanting to increase the geographical spread of the youth leagues. Kerry FC are a good example of why this is important.
    Clare, Tipperary, Meath and Laois - Offaly are probably stand out areas to try and encourage the local district leagues to consider representative teams at youth level.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    It's fair to say that the U19s would be the core of a 2023 First Division squad - admittedly they struggled for results in the first phase of the season, but 46 goals in all competitions shows that scoring hasn't been an issue, so they'd just need to add some more senior defenders and midfielders from the KDL to the mix.

    Another piece in the licence application jigsaw being sought, in the form of a Youth Academy coach with the prerequisite UEFA qualifications:

    Among those involved in Kerry's 2010 Kennedy Cup squad were Shane Ryan and the Clifford brothers - who knows, perhaps if David had played as a striker, rather than as a defender, sporting history might have taken a notably different turn ...

    Sky Sports will be misisng a trick if they don't provide live minute-by-minute coverage of LOI Licensing Day.

    "Exciting news Jeff - A representative of Galway United has just arrived at Abbotstown brandishing a DVD. Reports that Dundalk are feeling nervous. Maxi last seen at the Applegreen Service Station in Drogheda filling a green can....".

    Fair play to the lad, as the only one in that panel that isn't attached to a senior football club.

    Damien Locke has been appointed as Head Coach of the Youth Academy - he played for Dynamos during their spell in the A Championship, and more relevantly where the FAI and LoI are concerned he also managed Wexford Youths in 2017:

    A good read. A good pick up for Kerry FC to get on board. They also have Brendan Maloney coaching their U17’s. Brendan played a few years in the Championship with Nottingham Forest and had a long spell at Northampton Town, possibly first team manager?.

    There is a serious amount lot of pedigree and the age profile of these coaches and being local is fantastic!

    Certainly appears as though the personnel boxes will be ticked off in good time:

    Compare and contrast the way that Kerry FC are going about their business to get everything in order re joining the LOI with the shenanigans of that Irish Sea Border mob a year or so ago - who thought that all you needed to have a senior football team was a load of bizarre press releases and some weird social media activity by an obnoxious kid. Literally like night versus day. Thank god the FAI didn't fall for it.

    All being well, I'm looking forward to getting to a game in the Kingdom next season.

  23. Thanks From:
