Regional Teams

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Would have thought implementing this for football or hurling in Galway would be a win win both at club and regional level.
Club players push themselves to get picked for the regional team, training and playing with better players at a higher level will improve the individual players. Players return to the club team as improved players benefiting the club.

Young players have a clear attainable target to improve themselves without drifting away to other codes.

Young minors hurling teams of the last 3-4 years should serve as inspiration to the smaller clubs .....but will they they be able to realize their potential playing Junior A for their club.By playing regional it should make the goal of playing county a reachable goal.

Nearly everyone is senior in the hurling so I don't know how you'd form regional teams there ..

Not sure would Regional teams work in hurling, for example pick a best 15 from City/West Intermediate & Junior Clubs ...Moycullen, Spiddal, Rahoon-Newcastle, Barna-Furbo, Salthill- Knocknacara, M.Breathnachs, Menlo Emmetts. And then let that combined City/West team enter the Senior Club Championship?
South Galway would lose out because they would only have a pick of two Clubs Kinvara & Kilbeacanty.
North Galway would have Sylane, Carnmore, Annaghdown, Sk/Mountbellew, Tuam.
East Galway would have Killimor, Kiltormer, M/Eyrecourt, Ballygar Ballinasloe.

Yes, would also be an idea worth considering.
Would prevent the unnecessary transferring of players from the weaker clubs.
I don't think clubs like Carnmore, Kiltormer. M/Eyrecourt would consider it it but certainly for clubs like Annaghdown, Mountbellew, Sylane, and Ballygar would be of great benefit. All these clubs have produced county minors over past few years and would be a great opportunity for these lads to continue playing at a high level.
