The Longford Kennedy Cup manager Stephen Kelly has major reservations on the introduction of the Under-13 league of Ireland.
Kelly’s side finished third in the Kennedy Cup after a four-two win over Carlow last weekend.
Over 600 players were involved in the Kennedy cup which took place in the University of Limerick over five days with over 250 schoolboy clubs represented.
The Under-13 league of Ireland comprises of 24 teams in four regionalised leagues and began in March.
Stephen Kelly feels the league will impact on player development.
