Statement from the Inishowen Football League

The Inishowen Football League Management Committee , after consultation with all clubs, have decided to cancel the 2020- 2021 season . The leagues proposal was unanimously backed by the clubs. Given the recent government announcement it is hoped that clubs will be able to have a “normal”
pre-season in July in advance of the 2021-2022 season commencing in mid August. The league management would like to thank the clubs  for their co-operation in this process. As the Ulster Cup & Shield Competitions from 2019-2020 season were at an advanced stage the league will liaise  with the Ulster FA with a view to completing these competitions. League Management would also urge all clubs to continue to follow all the guidelines as laid out in the FAI return to train protocols. A  date for the AGM will be circulated to clubs  in due course.
