Sunday morning league matches could soon become a thing of the past in Armagh GAA...

Former Armagh captain Rory Grugan has confirmed on Twitter that his club Ballymacnab Round Towers will be tabling a new motion at the upcoming Armagh GAA convention.

The motion seeks to move all future club league matches to either a Friday or Saturday night.

The bulk of league fixtures in the Orchard County this year were played on Sunday afternoons with mostly LGFA league and championship matches taking place on the Saturday evening slot.

Supporting the idea, Grugan's county teammate Ethan Rafferty called for men's and ladies matches involving the host teams to be put together as double-headers.

Last year, Armagh LGFA became the first county to have a designated ladies football training facility but chairperson Sinéad Reel said the move would be a "logistical nightmare".
