Club Players Association Launched With Calls For Big Changes

There is an air of change in gaelic games today, as the Club Players Association has been launched at Ballyboden St Enda’s GAA club this Monday.

The CPA has been founded with a mission statement of tackling some key issues, mainly the scheduling, or lack thereof, of club games.

The statement which was used to drive sign-ups, entitled “I am a man”, detailed club players’ difficulties as due to scheduling, they are not sure when to take holidays, don’t know how many matches they have in any given year, they are playing at the wrong time of year while sitting idle during the height of the summer, etc.

While this has been a frequently discussed issue, little has truly been done until now. However, the CPA clearly mean business and have laid out some big plans, including a move which could bring the All-Ireland finals a month forward.

Chairman Declan Brennan spoke passionately about the journey ahead, and what needs to be done.
