BANK HOLIDAYS in Easter and October will be kept free of local soccer fixtures while seven days notice will have to be given for any play-off ties following motions passed at the annual general meeting of the Clare District Soccer League (CDSL).

With regards to the recommencement of the leagues, the new season will start on the weekend of August 19/20th it was confirmed with the Premier Division League along with the First, Second and Third Division league cups.

Delegates also voted to leave the October and Easter Bank Holiday weekends free of domestic junior fixtures following a motion by Rhine Rovers as well as the week before and after the Clare Cup Final for the two participants as proposed by Avenue Utd.

Seven days notice must also be given for any play-off fixtures that arise after league rounds have been completed after Avenue Utd’s motion was passed and the Rolsevan based club also had a proposal approved which will now ensure that Youths (Under 18) and Under 17 fixtures cannot be played on the same day.

However, Avenue’s greatest accomplishment on Tuesday evening came as a result of counter-acting the CDSL Committee’s proposal to increase the €40 adult player registration to €50. The back-to-back Clare Cup champions cleverly floated the contrasting idea of a reduction to €30 which intensified the debate so that in the end, both parties agreed to withdraw their motions in favour of maintaining the status quo of a €40 restoration for the 2023/24 season.

Club delegates were also informed that the CDSL’s Last Man Standing would be taken off the table, for now.
