U21 FC, East CorkGrading.

It seems an absolutelyunexplainable decision to allow a combination of two clubs fielding Junior Footballteams to compete in the U21 B Football championship in East Cork. Lisgoold andCastlemartyr are forming a team named Castlegoold this season.  We will behard put to field a team and fair enough, if clubs want to join up for U21 butsurely they should then be graded A.
