The Leinster Senior League revealed they have somewhat reluctantly withdrawn their nominations to challenge for positions held by an AUL and CCFL official at the upcoming Leinster Football Association AGM.
The LSL claim they have ‘adopted a diplomatic stance’, but claim the move will ‘restore a huge element of uncertainty’ across the province.
The LSL released the following statement via Herald Strikers Facebook page today.
The Leinster Senior League, in a move that will restore a huge element of uncertainty in Leinster, has agreed to withdraw their nominations to challenge for positions at the upcoming LFA AGM scheduled for Kildare on Saturday.
The positions held by AUL official Dick Redmond and CCFL’s Richard Kennedy were both being challenged with two strong and experienced candidates put forward but that scenario is now averted thanks to the LSL’s adopted diplomatic stance.
Relations between the biggest grassroots league in Leinster and the provincial body had threatened to cast a shadow over the AGM, but in what is seen a move brokered by key stake holders, the Leinster Senior League has proved to be the key dealmaker that will help restore relations and cement the good relations that had been enjoyed for so long between the two bodies.
In a brief communication with LFA General Secretary Peter Doyle, LSL Secretary Pat Kiernan outlined his league’s decision and stated:
Following on from your discussions earlier today, and in the interest of football in the Leinster area, The Leinster Senior League hereby withdraws its nominations for this Saturday’ LFA AGM.
See you Saturday.
