i always thought the club had to agree before a transfer was granted.

You might as well allow every big club in their county to have their pick off players from small clubs with that kind of attitude.

And then we'll lament the demise of the wee club down the road that can't field in the years to come. . .

He'd a big boost for them. I think Scotstown have the biggest catchment area in Monaghan, a bit like Kilmacud but on a smaller scale.
Really? I cycle it through  it fairly regularly and often wonder how they're a County superpower, it's a pretty small place, plus they've Monaghan Harps, Emyvale & Truagh on their doorstep - no doubt there's other clubs about I'm not aware of as well.

That's a silly argument. If it was a soccer club it would be generally accpeted that it is ok but we all know GAA doesn't work like that. The lads from Fossa get to play on the same team as the Cliffords because of the loyalty within GAA.

Yes and all that but it's still a free Country, amateur sport no contracts so if an individual wishes to transfer to another club within the rules he is free to do so.
Thankfully most players don't wish to transfer and most who do are pretty genuine like working and settling down a few hundred kms from home.

Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

. The village is obviously small but a large parish.  An amalgamation of a couple of parishes.

They are the only club in Monaghan that has a second team also in the Junior Championship. And a strong 3rd team. They do not have a small pick..

First they would have to get past Ballybay.

Afaics Jack's transfer is sound and abides by the rules which good refs should respect ;D

Monaghan CCC are understood to have granted the transfer on the basis of a county by-law that allow members to join a club that they have an association with through parentage or guardianship.
McCarron’s father Ray – an Ulster winner with Monaghan in 1985 and ’88 – originally played for Scotstown, winning multiple senior championships with them through the 1980s and nineties.
