U21 Football not played

posted 14 Feb 2017, 10:23 by Kanturk Gaa
Kanturk U21 footballers failed to field for their Duhallow U21 championship first round against Millstreet on Saturday 11th February. Kanturk could only muster 13 players for the tie and when they realised this on Friday 10th February, moved to get agreement from Millstreet GAA, which was forthcoming, to defer the tie to an agreed later date which would not delay the championship schedule. If Kanturk had taken the field with 13 players and not come up to the required 15 for the start of the second half, they would have both lost the game and been eliminated from the competition. This was not the option Kanturk's team management felt they should risk, thus an agreement to defer the game was sought to which Millstreet readily agreed.
