Replying To ArAisAris:  "Rumour is that they'll play the cups and c'ship in football, just c'ship in hurling. That gives everyone at least 4 or 5 games."
Hope that's right, no reason it can't be done

hearing it will be a knock out Cup in Sep then championship in Oct. If so think that is wrong, if a knock out Cup , you will have teams going into championship with different amounts of games, some with only one and a couple with three

For the year that's in it...I'll just be happy there is some games. If a team is going in having a couple of games less under the belt, then maybe a couple of challenge games or have the teams knocked out after R1 playoff against each other or something.

apparently will be a shield competition for teams who lose first round of the Cup, so every team will get at least two games. Has it been confirmed that all teams are going to be playing or are there teams struggling?

Junior will be a bit light this year - guessing no Naomh Padraig and I wonder if Bro Pearse will have the numbers to field a football side this year.

No Naomh Padraig...same as last year. A PR exercise

some of the bigger clubs struggled last year, KKG and Parnells, have things picked up for them this year? Also heard earlier in the year that Neasden had a lot of transfers out with not many coming in, have they picked up anyone? Also were the draws made for championship?

Haven't seen anything for hurling but for football championship groups below -

Senior:
TCG, Thomas Macs, Shamrocks, St Kiernans

Fulham, Neasden, Round Towers, KKG

Intermediate:
TCG, Dulwich, Cus, Eire Og

Parnells, Brendan's, Garryowen, st joes

Junior:
Tara, St Anthony's, Wandsworth, st kiernans

Clarets, Bros Pearse, Harlesden

Think parnells are only fielding the one team this year.

TCG be favourites for Seniors again with Fulham putting up a challenge. You'd imagine St Kiernans and Round Towers (with possibly TMCs as dark horses) will make the semis.
At Intermediate TCG and Dulwich will be too strong for the rest as both have made big strides in recent years.
The Junior Championship will more than likely be between Wandsworth and St Clarets.

see a few walkovers given at the weekend, also been a few cases of games being awarded due to Covid in the opening weeks. Hopefully we will see a full championship programme being completed.

Anyone know what games are on this weekend? Am I right in thinking Junior and Intermediate championships in the football are starting?

JFC should have been starting according to the master fixture plan
link
IFC and SFC slated to start next week

But the only fixtures listed are
Sat:
St Gabriels b v Granuaile IHC (2pm)
Kilburn v McCurtains SHC (4pm)

Sun:
Dulwich v Eire Og Murphy Cup final (12pm)
Parnells v Garryowen Sheils Cup final (2pm)
St Kiernans v TCG Tipperary Cup final (4pm)

all five games at Ruislip

That's assuming it's not water polo they're playing given the forecast.

The elements could have a big say on what goes where in the next few weeks. On Sunday you'd expect Dulwich, Garryowen and TCG to come out on top.

Thanks for that.

Also, the hurling matches on Saturday have been moved to Wormwood Scrubs presumably to protect the pitch for the finals.
