ACFL League's 2018

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Hi folks, thought I'd get the ball rolling on the new club scene for the year. Does anyone know when the fixtures for each League will be released? Seeing as they are down to start the first week of April I would think the fixtures should be out in the next week or two.

Yeah. Set for April but no idea when the fixtures are out. It's a long wait for club players but a few Cavan clubs are involved in the Ulster club league. Good competition for lads and beats endless training all day long although logistics are probably a bit of a head ache. Anyone know the criteria for competing in this league and was it invitation only? Seems a pity local clubs/CB can't come together and set up a few local leagues in Cavan for the next couple of months.

Big win alright. Ballinascreen beat Cootehill already who got hammered by Bellaghy at the weekend. Mountnugent and Laragh had big wins in the intermediate section at the weekend. Don't think any other Cavan clubs involved.

Anyone hear anything from the County Board meeting which took place last night (Monday) about which format is going to be used in the ACFL? I presume fixtures will be released very soon.

I think they just discussed menu options for the meal in the Croke Park Hotel the day of the Division 2 final, doubt if club games are near the top of the agenda with all the glory that is surely going to be bestowed upon them......

CB meeting was put back to next Monday night so hopefully we'll know then what format there is for 2018

So fixtures probably won't be out until the following week after that, which leaves 3 weeks between clubs finding out who they are playing for the year and the start of the league if it begins 1st of April. Hardly much preparation time.

It's not about when fixtures are. It's to do with how many games you will play with and without county players.

Play without, simple. The majority of people I've talked to from various clubs in Cavan over the past 2 or 3 weeks have gone in for option 2, playing every week with the League over before Championship. County players will still be available for play-offs/finals etc.. But of course it won't be that easy and we will have the same mess as last year.

Ballyhaise on the rob from a small junior club struggling for numbers doesn't sit easy with me. They have big enough numbers without taking a player from Drung who will get it hard enough to field a team this year.

Option 2 voted in last night i hear. Thats alot of football and will be very tough on teams with alot of county seniors and u20s.

Personally I think if was the right move. The majority voted it in so I can't see there being too many complaints, which club would have the most players in on the county panel?

Division 2 & 3 teams will be most pleased by this move I would say. Games every week for nearly every club player (Reserve League aswell) and not waiting around wondering when the next game is. Dates have been fixed and everyone knows the drill. About time!

Not long ago statement were being made the gaels second team would beat any of the senior teams so no argument this is their chance to prove what they have. Great that football will continue throughout the year and the county will benefit from it by hanging onto some quality players to the GAA and not losing them to other sports.

Anyone got information regarding the fixtures, have they been sent out to clubs yet? 2 or 3 weeks out from the League's commencing I would think they would have them out by now.
