Westmeath County Board to confirm club championship fixture format

At the time of going to press, no formal decision had emanated pertaining to the format of the forthcoming Westmeath club football and hurling championships.

A meeting of the county board CCC was to take place on Wednesday night (June 17 ) following which a detailed fixtures plan was expected to be announced.

The unveiled plan would then need the ratification of clubs before competitive competition can commence.

With the period July 31-October 11 allocated by the GAA towards the running of club competitions, it allows a brief timeframe for the senior, intermediate and junior championships to be hosted in both playing codes.

A revised round robin format has been mooted with four groups each comprising three teams, while a once off knockout competition may be the preferred fixture format with a ‘back door’ round afforded to teams defeated in the opening rounds of their respective championships.
