Premier 12s football games

This year brings another change to the closing format of the U-12 games, with the divisional champions from each group contesting the county semi- finals. Over the previous three years both divisional finalists contested the county scene.

However with Semple Stadium being difficult to procure, catering for such a volume of activity was proving difficult at any club facility.

Therefore resulting from protracted discussions at a number of Bórd meetings it was agreed to return to the format that applies to all other activity throughout the county at all other levels, whereby the divisional champions only qualify for the county semi-finals.

During the last week the Premier 12 football county semi finals came to a conclusion in all four groups. This year all semi final pairings are Mid v South and North v West. The officer board commends all four divisions on getting their respective finals completed and thanks are extended to all the clubs that hosted the semi-finals during the past week.

The county finals were scheduled for this Saturday but at the time of writing the venues and times were unavailable.

The fixtures are as follows -

Group 1

Durlas Og v Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams

Group 2

Cappawhite v Clonmel Og

Group 3

Ballyporeen v Burgess

Group 4

Clonoulty Rossmore v Fr. Sheehys
