KSBGL 2019-2020 Season Final Standings

Kerry Schoolboys Girls League 2019/2020 Season Ended:
Following correspondence from the FAI stating that All Football Activity suspended until July 20th at the earliest and games not kicking off until August 28th and from the SFAI Strongly recommending to all Leagues to end their present season as no games can take place until August 28th the Management Committee of the KSBGL has decided that the 2019/2020 season is now concluded.
The SFAI has also announced that all their competitions – Skechers National and Regional Cups and Subway Inter Leagues will not be completed. And the Kennedy Cup has also been cancelled.
On the Regional Competitions in particular this is very disappointing as we had a number of clubs into the semi-finals. The League will ask the SFAI to look again at this decision and should there be any change we will get in touch with the clubs involved.
While it is not what anyone wanted to happen in the current situation there is no other option. Clubs, coaches, players and parents need this certainty as they begin to plan for the next few months and some return to normality.
The MC will be in touch with the clubs once we get the definitive advice from the FAI / SFAI as to when the 2020/2021 season can begin.
Final Standings:
Having looked at various formulas and taking all games played and not played into consideration the League here are the final standings in the Boys Leagues. (All winners / joint winners and runners up/joint runners up will get a set of medals which can be collected at the AGM.)
**There will be no Automatic Promotion or Relegation this season and all Divisions will be reviewed ahead of the 2020/2021 League Fixtures Meeting.

Press Release issued re Conclusion of the KSBGL Season

VITHIT Kerry Schoolboys Girls League now concluded:
Following correspondence from the FAI stating that All Football Activity is suspended until July 20th at the earliest and games are not kicking off before August 28th and from the SFAI who have strongly recommended to all Leagues to end their present season the Management Committee of the Kerry SchoolBoys Girls League has decided that the 2019/2020 season is now concluded.
The SFAI has also announced that all their competitions – Skechers National and Regional Cups and Subway Inter Leagues will not be completed. And the Kennedy Cup has also been cancelled.
On the Regional Competitions in particular this is very disappointing as we had a number of clubs into the semi-finals. The League will ask the SFAI to look again at this decision once the Government’s Return to Sport working group, including the FAI’s Medical Expert Dr Alan Byrne, allows.
Thanks to the cooperation between the clubs and the League’s Fixtures Secretary a number of Leagues have already been completed and the MC has now contacted all clubs regarding the final standings of the various Boys and Girls Divisions and the declaration of the winners and runners-up.
While this is not what anyone wanted to happen, in the current situation there is no other option. Clubs, coaches, players and parents need this certainty as they begin to plan for the next few months and some return to normality.
Many of our players have family members on the frontlines and we take this opportunity to thank all those for the work they have been doing and are continuing to do.
The Kerry Schoolboys Girls League season 2020-2021 will begin in the Autumn once permission is granted by our governing body and the protocols needed are put in place.
