It is understood that the Fermanagh Competitions Control Committee (CCC) will meet on Thursday night to try and agree on the structures and timings for adult and underage competitions with the aim to then present a fixture schedule for County Management Committee to sign off on early next week.

And the draws for the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championship will take place this Monday night (June 29) and will be broadcast live by Fermanagh GAA.

A return to games took another step forward this week with GAA pitches opening yesterday (Wednesday) for the first time in over three months. This is initially for adult teams on a non-contact basis and in groups of no more than ten while it will then open up to underage teams from Saturday June 27, also for non-contact, small group training.

Following a meeting of their Covid-19 Advisory Committee on Saturday morning, the GAA also passed further recommendations from the group which include bringing forward a return to full contact training and challenge games to Monday June 29 before a potential start to competitive club fixtures from July 17.

This start date had initially been July 31 but this has been brought forward by two weeks and CCC may look to take advantage of this when drawing up their fixture plan.

“We will aim to try and make the most of whatever window that is available and that may include playing games before July 31 if that is feasible,” said a spokesperson.
