To be honest the only team we ‘tanked’ was Ballyhegan in the final. Got past Kileavey and Thomas Davis by the minimum in the 1/4 and 1/2 finals.did the bring lads down for championship then? How did they go from being competitive in the b league to tanking teams in the championship?
We’d only one player drop down from the senior panel, the bigger influence was some of the minors who hadn’t played throughout the league stepping up once their minor football had ended.
Absolute no brainier for any club that can sustain a seconds team, as mentioned already, the reserve league is a complete waste of time for any clubs who want to use it to genuinely develop younger players.
Best of luck to our neighbours St Peter’s and any other clubs going ahead with a seconds team in 2024.
