Ballinagh boss 'frustrated' by the league
BALLINAGH manager Ciaran Reilly described last year’s Cavan league as the best and most competitive he had experienced in some time, which leaves him somewhat frustrated as the format is set to change next year.
The 16 team senior league will be chopped in half, so his team must finish in the top eight to maintain their senior status.
“At the final stages of last year, eight teams could have finished in the top four, and eight teams could have finished in the relegation places. It was the best year. But they want to change it to having the bottom eight relegated,” said Reilly.
“It will be an interesting year though, because of these changes.”
He also suggested that the championship should be seeded according to league position so that they would avoid the situation that happened last year when themselves, Cavan Gaels and Ramor were drawn in the same group.
However, what has annoyed Reilly most about this season is the lack of regular action for his players.
“We have played two games, and we have had one cancelled. Now we are going to have four games in a space of fortnight,” he said.
