Club Championships

(Oldest Posts First)

After so many walkovers in the 'pre-season tournaments' per se it is quite difficult to see who will be the teams to watch out for in the various championships, has any one any thoughts on which teams have been playing well/recruited best? I see that Neasden Gaels had quite a few lads on the county set up, should they be serious contenders for the senior championship this year? I'm hearing good things about N.London Shamrocks and Moinderg for the intermediate and Junior Championships?

Junior - Moindearg

I know Moindearg got to the Junior final in the Gaeltacht tournament at the weekend not sure how the final went, look the team to beat at Junior this year.

So after taking their appeal all the way to British HQ to keep them in the Tipperary Cup competition last month Fulham Irish didnt bother turning up to the final on Saturday?

Anyone have any idea why? Seem very strange for them to make such a fuss then do this?

Macattack - I don't think they purposely did not field on Saturday, obviously lads have let them down. The amount of Walkovers already this season have been a disgrace and rather than throwing the book at them, these teams seem to now be able to get all their fixtures played during mid-week and allow their lads to be free every Saturday evening.

So basically the teams that are breaking their backs to scrape 16-17 players together for a weekend game are at a huge disadvantage, as chances are, they will never be at full-strength. If you want to know what clubs hold power in this town, look no further than the upcoming fixture schedule.

But they also have a reserve side, sorry I'm not buying that they couldnt get a team together! So it was either two fingers up to the county board or they were missing a couple of key players and didnt want to get a beating from TCG so close to the championsip! Either way it was bad form.

I think the mid week fixtures are a good thing and they should be used more for the league and cups competitions. Get the games played and not have the season running into November. Looking at the master fixtures not doing too badly at the moment.

Macattack - all of their county players were out on the pitch waiting for the rest of them to arrive, so I don't think they would have wasted their time coming all the way out to Ruislip on a Saturday evening just to make point to the county board.

All the walkovers aside, The Master fixture list is going well. And don't get me wrong, I'm all for mid-week fixtures too but the point I was making is that you can't have same teams playing every Wednesday night. And then hand out big fines to clubs that can't field at 6 o clock on a Sunday evening. That is not a level playing field.

NLS appear to be going very well, they gave Heston some hammering in the league. Have Heston already resigned themselves to dropping back down to intermediate?
