Tony Martin will remain as AUL President going into the new season.
Herald Striker revealed this week that there was a call at the AUL AGM for the long serving and successful President to ‘consider his position’, but Martin revealed he will continue in his role.
The call seems to stem from the controversy surrounding the ‘AUL Eight’ as well as other departures from the league over recent seasons.
However, Martin revealed he has the backing of the committee and feels he is best served to progress the league in the future.
“There is always going to be bumps along the road as you go along. People have asked for a change, but they haven’t actually come up with a solution. I have the full support of the committee and as long as I have that I will continue to go,” Martin told Herald Striker.
The AUL President’s comments came after he called for the FAI to undertake a Genesis style review of amateur football and before he highlighted some AUL success stories to show the League’s health isn’t as poor as some suggest.
