It’s the end of another era for Sheriff YC as they have pulled their second string from Premier B.
The club have restructured their senior set up and the their second string more commonly known as the Sheriff Premier B is effectively no more.
The side will still function, but as a more traditional Saturday outfit and will compete instead in Senior Saturday.
By all accounts the reigning and two time Premier B champions wanted a new challenge as Premier B victory didn’t grant them passage into the AUL top flight due to the fact the club already have a side in Premier A.
The move means the club will no longer run the risk of it’s first and second string drawing each other in the junior cup competitions.
Having a more traditional Saturday set up may also aid new boss Mark Quigley as he can promote and demote players as he see’s fit. On fire Saturday players can be rewarded with a run out in the first team while regular first team players can be eased back from injury via the Saturday set up.
The club also believe that Saturday football is also the perfect place for a host of graduating under-17 players to test the senior footballing waters.
