Carryduff seems to be going in the right direction, their B and C team in the final of A reserve leagues next week. They are a massive force in the county.

Smurfy, why could your  B and C teams not field at the weekend? Are the players back playing soccer now? Tougher sanctions are needed on clubs who continually do not field in reserve games.  If you are not going to play then don't enter a competition. The CCC splits reserve into cup, shield, and plate so everyone has a chance of some silverware but some teams their nose up at it.

A stag and the county board wouldnít put it off finals had to be played this weekend

As I said leagues are going to be a disaster
First game off tonight
Auglishnafin who have 1 player that played a combined 20 minutes for the 20s now off.
What about the other 45 lads who miss out tonight?
What happens them?
Now I certainly donít blame auglisnafin for getting it off

So the Down under 20s game moved to Friday the 30th and rightly so
But it creates all sorts of problems for the Down fixtures
Round 2 now will be cancelled and with matches Monday it canít move to then
I see Attical and Saval off because of covid.
The county board need to make a statement very soon

2 out of 5 games played last night in the 3rd tier, that is not like a real league. This biggest threat to our leagues is going to be covid cases as the cases are rising in the community and are going to get worse. There is only one option for the county board to take and there would be no yapping from any club. Let the games commence on Friday.

Few more games called off on Friday already due to COVID cases in some clubs. Genuine question do we think the leagues will be finished this year?

Those clubs who called off last night due to covid have also asked to postpone Fridays games
What more can clubs do if they get an outbreak?
The county board literally have run out of weekends thatís even going Monday and Friday
Itís a tight fixture calendar as it is with no disruptions add in covid and itís impossible to play out a meaningful league
