The Leinster Senior League may just have changed the way amateur players secure insurance.
The home of Intermediate football in Leinster have introduced a ‘comprehensive personal accident scheme’.
The new scheme will see every player registered to play Leinster Senior League football secure insurance through the league rather than their clubs.
Once registered as an LSL player, players will have PA insurance for both playing and training.
Previously clubs had to secure insurance for players and it was a sizable financial restraint on clubs.
The changes have been welcomed by all clubs and were endorsed at a recent meeting of LSL powers that be and club representatives.
The new policy already seems to be the envy of other leagues and may even help to change how other amateur sports deal with the insurance issue.
