Review of Adult Competitions and Establishment of under 19 competition to fill the void between U17 and Adult grade.
Byrne and Aylward cup competitions.
1) Senior clubs want only to play senior teams. 2) Games are better than trying to arrange challenge games. 3) Fixture to close to championship games lead to walk overs.
1) Between League and championship 19 rounds needed to finish.
2) Imbalance in number of teams competing from North and South.
3) Only six club competed on South Junior A Thomastown, Dunnamaggin, Tullogher/Rosbercon, Mullinavat, Mooncoin, Carrickshock. 13 Teams competed in North Junior A
Junior B 17 Rounds needed to finish yet some clubs were eliminated week ending July 23rd.
New system required to take account of different needs of big and small clubs.
Senior and Intermediate clubs to name a minimum of 13 players for their first teams who cannot be regraded. Current system to continue for other grades.
Player Drop out
1) Major concern at number of players dropping out after minor grade.
2) Clubs favour U19 competition.
3) Maintain U21.
1) Amalgamate North and South Boards into County Junior Board to allow for organisation of all Junior competitions on an All County basis. See proposed format.
2) Replace current North and South Junior A and B League with all county junior A, B, C and D leagues to consist of 10 teams. Format for D decided when number of teams entering if finalised.
3) CCC to grade clubs on previous years championship.
U21 Organise U21 on All County basis. 3 Divisions. Draws to take place in October.
U19= 8 TEAMS IN EACH DIVISION PLAYING IN GROUPS OF 4. Number of teams in bottom division to be decided on entries.
See page 2 and 3 for current and proposed fixtures.
See page 4 for proposed format for new Junior A, B, C See page 5 for format for U19.
To avoid walk overs Games in all subsidiary leagues can be played 13 aside.
No postponements allowed in any subsidiary league games to be played on dates allocated. If team unable to field points go to opponents.
