The league divisions for the 2015/16 season are listed below.
The fixtures are available in the download link below. The first week of league fixtures are due the week 25th January 2016. There will be no fixture meeting for the league. All captains must organise their fixtures with the other captains in their division and either post or e-mail to the relevant steward. Fixtures must be organised as soon as possible.
The winning team (or home team in the event of a draw) must send scoresheets to their steward.
If a steward has not received the score sheet within 7 days they will text the captains to remind them. The captain will have another 3 days to get the score sheet in. If the steward still hasn’t received it the winning team will receive no points for that match.
The steward can confirm if they prefer to get a copy of the scoresheet via email, post etc.
Ahead of the new season, we would like to get your views on wether you would like to keep the Shield competition, or remove it and have bigger League divisions.
The Shield is the first competition of the Leinster League season, and runs for 6 weeks. The benefits of the Shield are that it provides teams with an extra opportunity to win silverware during the season and it involves all players having 4 matches per night (2 singles & 2 doubles). The Shield is also useful for rating teams so that they can placed in an accurate league division.
However, the downsides of the Shield are that promotion and demotion are not guaranteed, and teams can often end up playing the same teams in the League that they did in the Shield, particularly in the higher and lower divisions.
By removing the Shield, it would allow the league divisions to become bigger, and each group would involve 7-8 teams. Have your say by taking part in the survey below.
The survey will remain open until Saturday evening.
The Bulletin includes the final team standings, individuals, and stewards reports.
The team and individual awards will be presented at the end of season presentation night, on Friday 25th April, in Parnells GAA Club, Coolock.
Update: The bulletin has been updated and now includes the reports for Premier and Division 3.
