Keep or Remove the Shield?

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.

Shield Results

The final matches in the Shield competition are now underway. If you notice any results missing for your team in the results section, please email them on.

Several teams such as St Pauls 1 (Group 1), ESB 1 (Group 4), Navan 1 (Group 7) and Navan 2 (Group 8) have completed all their matches with a 100% record.

The Shield Bulletin, with the final confirmed team and individual standings, as well as stewards report for each division, will be published in the coming weeks.

The League Divisions will be decided at a meeting on Monday night. Please let your Steward know about any late results before Mondays meeting.

The full list of league divisions and fixtures will be published online as soon as they are available. The first round of league matches are due to be played the week of Monday 6th January.
