Should these two clubs in what is a small enough town (for pool of soccer players as the gaa comes first) merge and have one team in the premier division and maybe a second in a lower division like new oak, crettyard, hanover, parkville etc? Therefore strenghtening there first team and maybe even the premier division as a whole. Instead of having two clubs struggling to get to mid table in the premier division.

Just interested in what people think as i've heard rumors that this is what some players from bagenalstown/kilree think is the only way forward and only chance of either club winning the league.

Do people think thats a good/bad idea and why?

No, I dont think they would challenge cretty with both sets of players and some players have left one club for the other which leaves a bad taste so i cant see it happening. And the town would miss the local derbys they always get a great turn out!

Have to disagree I think they would have a strong squad of players to compete with any team in the league if they merged the two clubs and probably a second team able to compete for the nationalist division.
But the problem is it will never happen and not because some players have transferred from one club to the other as the bulk of players know each other very well, but because the powers to be over either club would not agree. Also most of the best soccer players from both clubs are footballers/hurlers (10 to 15 of st Andrews intermediate squad are signed for either team) and some won’t commit to the soccer till the gaa season is over and therefore the first team would be missing a lot of players on any weekend that the gaa season is on. An example of this is kilree had to play parkville without 4 of their starting players and another 3 or 4 that are signed up but won’t play soccer till the gaa season is over and b-town have to put up with the same problem.
