    Living in south dublin so will probably try go with the rebels but hopefully we will play you someday

    The Rebels are a pretty good team to begin with, you get plenty of experience.

    The South Kildare Soldiers are looking for assistant and positional coaches for the up coming season. Please contact [email protected]

    does anyone know when the fixtures for next year are out? should be soon right?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,880 ✭✭✭ Guffy


    There is an AGM on Saturday, I believe they will be released at this. Assuming all of the audit meetings were satisfactory.


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    Think all the audits were fine - AGM should have a full schedule proposed - including 4th july games and that! Roll on tomorrow


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,064 ✭✭✭ nerd69


    Great news that all teams passed what are the new teams is it just Donegal/Derry I herd dit are just playing flag for a bit


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,265 ✭✭✭ davetherave


    Just back in from the AGM. Suffering jaysus, thank god it is only once a year I'll say that much. :D:D

    North West Vipers are in IAFL2 in 2015.
    DIT are formative members with a view of fielding a team in 2016.

    SBC North is Belfast, Carrick, Craigavon, Rebels and Panthers
    SBC South is NKR, WDR, TCD, UCD and UL

    IAFL 1 is up to 7 teams. Waterford, Mullingar, Meath, Cork, Drogheda with Tyrone and Dundalk moving up from IAFL 2


    IAFL 2 is still TBC. South Kildare are still down there, as are Galway and now the Vipers. What the Association are looking at is for SBC teams to have "B" teams take part in IAFL2.


    So there will be 20 teams playing kitted football next year.

    Cheers.. was dreading the two trips north if we had to play a trojans b as well as derry/donegal.

    I think they should do two divisions in IAFA 1. North and south. Play your division twice and the other division once. Travel between titans and southern teams would be a mare alright but would just be one game

  • Registered Users Posts: 39 EJ88


    I'll hopefully be playing for the Vipers, we're well spread out in our division.


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    yeah its gonna be tough for vipers this year - im with the soldiers and only for drogheada dropping down it would be brutal for us - galway is a long trip - and donegal is a really long trip! Vipers will have tough away days

    Ah right. What position do you play? How many years are the soldiers going? Yeah Galways about 4 hours for us, would nearly be the same to Kildare.

    Very true.

    Ah cool. Going to try Receiver myself. Yeah just had the first training last week. Had a good turn out. Are you guys training again?


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    never stop training to be honest - took a break for 2 weeks over xmas but back to training since the 7th! Got a few newbies in this year that we want to give the best foundation of the game!
    Is it all newbies with you guys?


  • Registered Users Posts: 39 EJ88


    Yeah all new guys as far as I know. The coach seems to be the only one with playing experience. Bit of a steep learning curve but I guess that's the fun of it. Yeah it's good that you guys have the experience for the new guys.


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    once you get your first game outta the way your grand!! our first game against the mavericks was awesome - great build up and great game - we lost - but all the better for the experience of it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 39 EJ88


    I watch a lot of American football but it's amazing some of the things you pick up on after you learn to play.


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    Hearing reports that Drogheda Lightning could be out of the league - not sure as to why but i think the club may be wrapped up!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,880 ✭✭✭ Guffy


    Was told yesterday that 6 teams were confirmed for IAFL2. Don't know if this includes drogheda and 2 b teams or 3 b teams. Can't think of who third b team is though. Belfast, rebels and ?

    Schedule should be released Wednesday.


  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    UL Vikes i heard yesterday too


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,880 ✭✭✭ Guffy


    Do they not have a small enough first team?

    Although thinking now they brought a few rookies to Spain didn't they?

  • Registered Users Posts: 950 ✭✭✭ nasty_crash


    I thought that they had a small roster too - but apparently enough interest for a b team! Should be great for you guys to have a game close enough to home!
    Cant wait for the schedule
