Message from the Chairman

THE Mayo League has made many great strides over the last number of years in terms of summer football, sponsorship, Super League and the setting of standards. We now need to move forward once again and concentrate on developing the game further by means of coaching and improving playing standards.

Although many individual players have gone on to achieve greater rewards at both national and international level, our junior clubs have failed to deliver the ultimate prize at provincial or national level over recent times. It is now time for both the clubs and league to use the resources that are available to develop all our players at every level. With this in mind I hope to put in place a coaching structure within the county that will facilitate this need. This, however, will require the assistance, co-operation and support of clubs, if it is to be successful. By working together and having a common goal, we can achieve our objectives and reap rewards for years to come.

A lot of time, effort and energy has gone into the preparation of this fixtures schedule. It is essential to the smooth running of the League that it is used as intended, and that clubs communicate the information therein to their players, coaches and officials. Make sure that you pass on a copy of the booklet to your club P.R.O. to further promote the game with your local media.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to our generous sponsors, to whom we are deeply indebted for their ongoing support over the years The Welcome Inn Hotel, T.S.B. Bank, Chadwicks Ltd., A.I.B. Bank, Flannelly Insurance, Westaro Hosing Ltd., Stauntons Intersport, Oliver Kelleher an the Connaught Telegraph. I would ask all the clubs to support our sponsors at every opportunity.

Finally, I would like to appeal to all clubs to make every effort to seek additional referees. The local branch of the I.R.I.S. is in dire need of new recruits, and the onus is on all of us to ensure that we have a match official for all games, and to secure the future of the game. Unless we act now, the consequences could be critical.

I would like to wish all clubs, their players, officials, managers and coaches, together with our referees and members of the media, a most successful season. With clear communication and working together, we can all be winners at the end of the season.
