That's a cheap shot. The bigger issue is what to do when juvenile players refuse to play for their first club. This has been an issue for a number of years. No easy fix.

Are juvenile players dictating to clubs now? Or their parents?

A rhetorical question . Parents will say their child doesn't want to play. The affected club will say there's football or hurling there for the child. Positions become entrenched. The CCC have to balance the need to ensure player loyalty to their first club with the need to respect the rights of the child. A club can't make someone play for them, but it can prevent the player going elsewhere . A headache for the CCC.

The 'needs of the child' are usually mey by most clubs.
The needs of the parents involved mightn't be however. Some are completely focussed on the wrong things.

To be fair ,the players in question have tried for the last two years to go to different clubs, Clonkill are actually fourth choice on this occasion, each year they went training with a different club to get a transfer but the difference is the other clubs didn't actively pursue it so on each occasion it came to nothing. Clonkill on the other hand probably will to add to the 30 other lads they have at that age group
