The Leinster Senior League are currently exploring the idea of changing from a Winter to a Summer season.
In fact the LSL, home of Intermediate football in Leinster, will hold a vote on the matter at an EGM in mid July.
If the vote falls in favour of Summer football the respected league will revert to Summer football as early as the Summer of 2019.
The idea was proposed by Crumlin United and seconded by fellow Senior Sunday powerhouse and reigning champions Bluebell United.
At present a ‘steering committe’, which was elected within the clubs is discussing the idea and exploring the pros and cons of such a move before next months vote.
The KDFL made the move in the Summer of 2016 and have found the switch successful.
The five Junior Divisions kick off in the first week of April while the Over 35 and Women’s Division also play out over the Summer months.
The LOI of Ireland and some of the underage set ups across the country have also made the move and the reaction has been similarly positive.
Probably the most famous amateur manager of them all Pete Mahon, who took St Francis to an FAI Senior Cup final, called for the move previously and believes it would be helpful to the game as a whole in the country.
“After that six or seven of my St Francis players joined league clubs. There is no non league club who would have that many make the step up now,” said Mahon.
“There are still good players in the Leinster Senior League, but they are spread out across the clubs. And the fact we have different seasons makes it all the harder. We are in our pre season now we have had just one game, which isn’t ideal preparation for playing a side like Derry.
“I would like to see all levels follow the league of Ireland switch to Summer soccer. There is no enjoyment training in the depts of winter.”
The LSL also look set to vote on an insurance shake up.
A new scheme introduced put forward by the LSL would register every player in to a group league policy. That one centralized policy would ensures clubs and players are all insured.
If passed the move would save 90% of clubs thousands of euros each year. The JSP believes that registered players pay €30 for the season. At present Insurance is currently single policy through individual clubs, but if passed each player will register direct with the LSL and be covered by a league policy.
