The Kilkenny and District League will not proceed with fixtures until at least February in 2021.
That’s according to honorary secretary Tom Mullins who was speaking to KCLR yesterday about the effect of Covid-19 on the league’s fixtures.
Soccer fans have been eagerly anticipating the return to action, with most clubs only managing to get three fixtures in cup and league action before play ceased last October.
Training was eventually reduced to non-contact training with a maximum of fifteen players when the country went to Level 3 restrictions before being halted entirely as soon as Level 5 restrictions were put in place.
Mullins believes that the league will have to be finished before the end of June if the 2020/2021 campaign is to be completed.
Speaking to KCLR Mullins said: “It looks like it is going to February before we have a go. My own personal opinion, I can’t see anything coming back in January. After Christmas it looks like we will go into lockdown for another month.”
He continued: “It will give us about three months to try and get our domestic leagues finished, it’s going to be very tight”.
