Laois Way To Scout County Players - Could It Work In Leitrim?

(Oldest Posts First)

After county final, county split in 4 and 4 amalgamated teams play 3 round robin games.

Top 2 play in final and bottom 2 in shield final so all get 4 games.

Allows players at Junior/Intermediate to play at higher standard.

Would below be fair teams?

North - Manor, Melvin, Osnats, Glenfarne, Dromahair, Drumkeerin
South - Mohill, Eslin, Bornacoola, Cloone, Gortletteragh, Annaduff
West - Ballinaglera, Allen, Leitrim, Mary's, Kiltubrid, Fenagh
East - Aughavas, Carrigallen, Ballinamore, Aughawillan, Aughnasheelan, Drumreilly

The new Laois manager is a Kerry man and down in Kerry they have always had divisional teams entering their senior champ which allows intermediate and junior players play at a higher standard and also giving these players a chance to win a senior champ medal.

It would definately be an idea strongly worth considering and seeing if there is a liking for it within the club scene. The time for using divisional teams is during the club championships.

Yes and it would improve the county championship standard significantly. Confine the senior championship to top 7 clubs (or 9 at a push) and 3 divisional sides made of the best of the rest. It would also give intermediate (and the odd junior player) the opportunity the play in the SFC.
