season starts for the intermediate and junior
clubs with the Betsy Gray Cup. This year it will
be played as a 12 a side competition with both
Senior and Junior County panellists ineligible
to play. This would normally throw the competition
wide open but with all of Bredagh's (last year's
Junior championship winners) panellists dropping
out of the junior squad it leaves them with a
full complement of players for the competition.
The competition starts with
a preliminary round on the 17th of February and
the first round proper is on the 24th February.
The first round losers get relegated to the shield
competition and the winners go through to the
cup. It is hoped the finals of cup and shield
will be played on the 1st May.
