Does anyone know if Junior and Intermediate Championship winners have to automatically play at higher championship level in 2021 in Antrim?

In my experience almost all clubs have took in players from other clubs at underage or senior level.

At underage level it is mainly due to the players home club not being able to produce a team for said players. The player usually stays with 2nd club until he leaves minor and then decides to join 2nd club fully as he's played for them for up to 10 years at underage.

At senior level players transfer for a multitude of reasons, Fallings out with home club, moving for work, marriage etc or just wanted to play at a higher level.

Surely it is better that players are allowed to move clubs than lose them to another sport.

I've heard that league games will go ahead but clubs will not be forced to play. I think clubs should play games, even though there is no promotion and relegation, and no county players included, to give squad players and up and coming players game time before next season.

DR, I agree with you about Neilly McGarry. He was the shamrocks stand out defender. Pivotal moment for me was Dan McCloskey going through and not laying ball off, when it was cleared I knew the game was Dunloys.  Some of Loughgiels match ups in 1st half were suspect as well imo, Tony marking Seann was always gonna be tough on him.

On another note, does anyone know if leagues are gonna continue on 27 September? I can see pluses and negatives for it but in my opinion I think it would be good for clubs to give squad players game time as most teams always need to find 1 or 2 more players each year. Losing 3 months of season due to lockdown and most teams out of championship by end of August means 11 months with no hurling which I think is too much.
