Following the Ballyspallen debacle, the NW are in the process of reviewing the league structure for 2020.

While most of the debate has been about the relative merits of an 8, 9, or 10 team structure, one option which could be worthy of consideration is a league structure involving all 15 senior sides.

With the sides playing each other once, they would have 14 league games, alternating each year regarding home advantage.

The proposal is a radical one, but would rejuvenate the game in the NW, giving a real boost to Championship sides, who face a struggle.

In recent sides the NW have lost amongst others, Crindle, Drummond, Limavady, Killymallaght and Creevedonnell, while The Nedd, Sion Mills and Bonds Glen have all endured struggles.

One prominent NW player said; " While there will undoubtedly be some objections from the top clubs, I feel the NW should give it a try for a year or two.

"With no relegation the pressure would be off, and clubs could blood youth, and put the money into their respective clubs rather than paying average players and professionals.

"The game in the region is struggling and this may be just the shot in the arm it needs."

The idea certainly has merit. What is there to lose?
