Dont know if this is the right thread for it or not, but I honestly feel the decision the change minor back to u17 is going to lead to more player burnout problems now, and of course clubs will be worse off again.
Your minor team will be made up of u16s and 17s, meaning club u16 level will be affected. U20 will be 18-20 year olds not on senior squad, then youll have the players with the senior squad. Clubs squads could be even more decimated by this. Senior teams will now have to contend with 2 county squads when trying to get access to players.
I’m convinced its going to lead to more problems than solutions. Call me old fashioned but I honestly believe minor and u21 should have been left as is
I really hope that in the not so distant future it will return to u18 and u21. But I wont hold my breath with the GAA
