Ulster Senior League heading back to winter football:
What a disaster!
It looks like the Ulster Senior League are heading back to the dreaded winter football, which in the view of this column is a disaster, especially for teams who want to get the ball down and play a decent style of football.
The main reason for the switch back to winter football seems to be the fact that teams are losing too many players to the Donegal League and to a lesser extent the Inishowen League, but this column would suggest that if these players were doing well enough with their Ulster Senior League side, they would be in no major rush back to Junior football.
Anybody who tells me they would enjoy going to places like Fanad in January, when the ball is blowing back in the face of the keeper every time he takes a kick out, or to a swamp of a pitch in Ramelton or Drumkeen are off their heads.
