Limerick District League officers appointed ahead of new season

The Limerick District League Committee and clubs elected new officers of the new 2019/2020 season at it’s Annual General meeting just over a week ago. The following men have been tasked with running the league ahead of the new campaign:

Chairman- Christy O Dwyer

Vice Chairman- Malachy Cosgrave

Secretary – Ger Smyth

Assistant Secretary – Turlough McNamara

Registrar- Noel Hanley

Fixtures Secretary- Mike O Regan

CPO- Liam Collopy

The likes of Christy O’Dwyer, Noel Hanley and Malachy Cosgrove have given great service over the years and remain in their roles.

Due to the recent sad passing of Limerick District League and Mungret Regional stalwart Pat Cotter, who was a trusted member of the committee, the position of treasurer has yet to be filled and will be filled in the coming weeks.

There is one big change to the Limerick District League Premier Division layout this season.

All teams will play each other in the first round of games before being split into two groups of six based on the points accumulated in the first round of games.

The top six will compete for the league and face their top six rivals home and away while the bottom six will compete for a shield as well as a battle to avoid relegation. The bottom two teams will be relegated as per usual.

The LDLC made the move in an attempt to avoid some of the heavy defeats and walkovers handed out over the last few years. A spokesperson for the league stated the reason for the move.

“As for the last few seasons, walkovers and clubs shifting heavy defeats have done little good for the top flight.

“With this new look league, the LDL must be complimented on giving this new format a go.”
