So with the delayed start and no third level football, the intercounty U20 Championship will have to be pushed out - lets hope they don't try and run the same time as the national leagues but who knows as they have shown scant regard for this age group over the past couple of years so you would have to assume the worst.

I'm sure most teams would be happy enough to play away without their under 20's

If we could get adult games up and running, I think U20s could be a sacrificial lamb for this year.

That wasn't really my issue, the issue with playing early at this stage is that unlike intercounty senior the u20s may not have kicked as ball since last September and a four week return to play just wouldn't be fair.

They could do, depends when club players are allowed to get back training I would say. If intercounty has to finish first there will be a time when both club and county will be allowed so there is a chance to get it in before the end of the county season. Who knows at this stage, a few twists and turns perhaps to go.

For sure. Impossible to say when county training will resume even.

Hard to see any training even before April/May or until the vaccine roll out speeds up.

Regardless of when it all starts, it's going to be a tough year on the Footballers. He needs to bring in young blood but they won't have much playing time together. While we can aim for promotion, I cannot see it happening.
