Premier B will remain after none of the seven remaining AUL Premier B teams took up the AUL Committee’s offer to play top flight football.
The AUL called a meeting on Monday night after the Howth Celtic and Ely Woodlawns withdrawal from Sunday football reduced their top division from a ten to an eight team league.
The powers that be in the Junior league had hoped to restructure again and a year after dropping Premier C were looking to scrap Premier B.
They proposed three of the seven teams currently making up the second tier move up to Premier A with the remaining four dropping down to Premier Sunday.
The JSP believes the offer was open to any of the seven willing to make the step up and test themselves against the likes of Usher and Sheriff next season.
However, none of the clubs accepted the offer, which is understandable considering a host of them are new to Premier B and feel they are at the level they should be at at this stage of the progression plans.
So as it stands going into the league which is set to kick off this month there will be a Premier A made up of eight teams and a Premier B with 7 teams participating.
Interestingly enough the Premier B teams will play each other three times over the course of the season.
