I propose to commence midweek U17 fixtures as soon as possible when we have enough daylight. These will commence @ 6-30 PM and I will endeavour to avoid travelling long distances as much as I possibly can. I intend to play on Wednesday and Friday nights to avoid clashes with other Lges and to also have enough refs to staff the games.Contact will be made with Eddie Doyle Fix Sec Schoolboy's Lge to dovetail fixs to avoid U17s and U16s clashing.Tony.

article by David Hall
As you all may know last year I entered a comment on the blog in relation to the importance of clubs seeking full and proper medical intervention when it comes to the treatment of players at their club.
I would like to take this opportunity once again to reiterate the importance of such steps and the likely success of implementing a physiotherapy scheme at an amateur football club. Before we embarked this season one of the most important associations I needed to make for Leeview was to open an account with an approved sports physiotherapy provider.
As we have all seen from events at Birmingham at the weekend football can be an unforgiving sport and at times very hazardous. Whilst we cannot prevent injuries like the one Eduardo received I believe it is the responsibility of Clubs throughout the county to ensure the safety and well being of their players whilst training and on match day.
Issues such as alcohol intake and poor diet are items I’ve touched on before in which I encouraged clubs to take a more professional approach to the health of theirs players no more so has the improved diet of a club had such an effect than at Spurs who won the carling cup on Sunday.
I would on this occasion like to highlight the benefits of utilizing physiotherapists and other allied medical professionals to treat persistent injuries and to prevent future muscle or rheumatologic damage.
Leeview have greatly benefited from the use of our physiotherapists to such an extent I can claim our current league position has been helped in no uncertain terms. I have had an ever present centre half this year after an issue with fallen arches was identified, I have had support and advise on niggling ankle injuries that has allowed players to rest and come back with no reoccurrence of their previous injuries and most importantly I have had a fully fit forward line to choose from despite groin and hamstring problems all year.
Physiotherapists costs can be expensive for some clubs but at Leeview we don’t have much money but what we do have we believe should be invested in the health and well being of players.
The pitches we play on week from week most of the time aren’t great and due to the heavy rain we have had groin injuries can be prevalent as well as ankle sprains. I would encourage all teams to look at their clubs own medical review be it a proper first aid kit and someone qualified to use it or an alliance with a proper medical professional or an association with a physiotherapists or an allied health professional judging by the weekends events you never know when you might need it.

Leeview AFC is looking for source another ground to call their home pitch. At present Leeview AFC play their home games in Garryduff however it is becoming increasingly difficult to play fixtures at this ground as it seems to get called of at the slightest amount of rain and due to the ground receiving heavy ground flow from the astro turf spray. As most managers know momentum at this stage of the year is important in order to maintain a title challenge but it seems like our games are called of every other week and in some cases we can go up to 3 weeks without a game.

We are ideally looking for a ground to share in and around the cork city or surrounding area with adequate changing facilities. This arrangement could suit an individual ground owner or a large club willing to share to bring in much needed income.

Cork teams fared well in the quarter final draws of the FAI Youth and U17 Cups. The draws were made in the FAI Headquarters on Wednesday. The only team drawn away from home are Cork City who must travel to Wexford to take on Wexford Youths in the FAI Umbro Youth Cup. Fermoy after their outstanding victory away to Drogheda Utd are favoured with a home draw against St. Patrick's Ath.
The Cork City and County Youth League will have a home draw in the quarter finals if they overcome N.D.S.L. as they have been paired with the winners of the LDMC/Mayo clash.
In the FAI Umbro Under 17 Cup the winners of the Cork City v College Corinthians game will be at home to the winners of WFTA and Wembley Rovers clash.

I run an amateur team in Middlesex and we are looking at coming to Youghal for a weekend in May. I was wondering if you could send me any contact details of any clubs - (preferably in the lower leagues and preferably an older side as our team has an av. age of 36!) - that are within 30 miles of Youghal who might be interested in playing in a friendly fixture while we are there!

Your help is appreciated,
