Division 3B (2019)

Replying To rocky92:  "I think the leagues should be split as follows;
Division 1A-8 teams
Division 1B-8 teams
Division 2A-7 teams
Division 2B-7 teams
Division 3 -8 teams

This was the structure before the change to the current in 2007 and it was more competitive and the promotion/relegation implications where more exciting."
I fully agree with this format each division competitive and it would allow promoted teams an opportunity to progress gradually going from Junior to intermediate or intermediate to senior is a massive jump but I think a promoted team would fair better in a B league whilst trying to get to grips with the standard.

On second taught,
Perhaps the following would be a bit more competitive;
Division 1-8 teams
Division 2A-8 teams
Division 2B-8 teams
Division 3A-7 teams
Division 3B-7 teams.

I think the jump from div 3 to div 2 would be better helped with the above structure.
But, this will probably not happen as removing teams from division 1 could be a thorny issue.

Yea I think the idea was always to sort out the big problem in Div 3 see how the smaller divisions work. I reckon we'd be onto a winner with a split like mentioned above.

That would work the best. I think the whole reason behind the change to 3a 3b was to have more competitive games if the Mitchels where in 3a don't think it would make the division more competitive just have equal games. Tommy Kirk to the seans is a good move on there part he'll have them well drilled and disciplined if they can get the numbers I'd fancy them.

Replying To WheresDeBallBag:  "I'm not 100% sure on the split lads just the way I remembered it. It was probably based without counting Ann Rovers. I know what you are saying about Mitchels but keeping divisions even would be good in terms of clubs getting even amount of games. I think it can be changed in February when competition regulations proposed and accepted don't quote me on that either I've been known to be wrong"
Your very seldom wrong especially with your inside knowledge

I think clubs would rather play in 3B rather than 5...just sounds a little bit better...so clubs are more likely to accept it... that's my opinion

Could be alright, but it is still a B division

League Games won't be going ahead now this weekend and if Louth win then the final will be the following weekend so there'll be no games then either great for the county team & players but not so great for your average club player.

You sure I'd say any game that can proceed I. E. Winter league finals and league games with no county team involvement will blast on.

No doubt they will be cancelled and then we will be forced to play 4 or 5 games in a few weeks.

Welcome to the world of a club player

Yes and like I said there is rounds of the league can go ahead Sunday. Definitely 3 Round 1 games in div3b can go ahead off the top of my head. Probably more.

Can't see that happening no point starting league games and then over half of the games been called off & squeezed in midweek,not really fair on clubs been punished for having county players.
